Leading fashion magazine Vogue announced in this month’s issue that cleavage is no longer fashionable. That’s right, no more cleavage. Social media has reacted hysterically to the news. Other news includes LoveHoney being awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise, and the Westworld orgy.
Vogue has decided that cleavage is no longer trending. It’s no longer fashionable, and ultimately that’s a good thing for women.
“Rejecting the stereotypes of gender has been brought sharply into focus, with the days of women as eye-candy, their sexuality positively smouldering rather than subtly played out, officially over.”
“The cleavage – those magnificent mounds pushed together to display sexual empowerment, to seduce, to inspire lust or even just to show off – is over, or at least, taking a well-earned break”
Apparently cleavage displays sexual empowerment, but we’re now rejecting it in favour of rejecting stereotypes.
“The tits will not be out for the lads. Or for anyone else, for that matter.”
Whilst I’m sure they’re correct in noticing run way trends emphasising more on showing off legs, midriff and shoulder, I don’t believe new fashion trends are any less sexual. I personally find bare midriffs very sexual.
Social media has replied to the article with various gifs of women in lingerie or bikinis showing off considerable cleavage. Otherwise have also protested against the idea of no more cleavage.

Lovehoney receives the Queen’s award for enterprise
Lovehoney is a British online retailer that specialises in sextoys. They’ve just received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the highest award a business can get in the UK. It means they’ve made over £50 million.
The success is thanks to their exclusive contract to make sex toys branded with the 50 Shades of Grey name. The bdsm novel has sold millions world wide and increased the number of sex toys purchased since it’s release. The company are gearing up for even more sales in February when the second movie is due to be released.
The award means that the company can no use the Queen’s Emblem on it’s packaging for the next five years. It’ll be interesting to see the Queen’s mark on various sex toys, that’s for sure!
Westworld orgy isn’t porn
For those of you who are following Westworld you’ve probably noticed the giant orgy scene in the latest episode. True to their promise, HBO brought out the big guns in terms of sexual acts. The room is filled with people covered in gold engaging in various sexual acts with both members of sex.
The orgy scene, whilst detailed and deeply erotic, isn’t porn HBO claim. The whole scene took a lot of planning. Special extras were contracted to do nudity. A sex stylist was at hand to make sure everyone was in the proper position and looking good.
“It was all hands on deck, to say the silly pun. We were trying to make things feel elegant and graceful and beautiful and strange.” states Richard J. Lewis
“I think all of us have a modicum of taste that keeps us from taking it too far into the pornographic world and keeps it in the sensual world.”
I think the rule is probably something along the lines of
- Never show actual genitalia
- Do not show a penis going inside a vagina, mouth or anus
- No shot lasting too long on any single sexual act
