Just weeks after losing a libel trial launched by ex-husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard is still under ongoing investigations amid allegations of perjury in Australia. The actress and her former spouse were the subjects of national controversy – dubbed ‘Terriergate’ – after Heard brought their two dogs , Pistol and Boo, Down Under without declaring the Yorkshire Terriers and without adhering to the country’s strict 10-day quarantine policy. In July 2015, the actress – who was still married to the actor, in Australia filming the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise – was charged with two counts of illegally importing the animals and, after pleading guilty to falsifying travel documents in court, the case was closed, with Heard and Depp forced to share a grovelling public apology on video in April 2016, a month before they split, which was widely mocked at the time. They had their dogs flown back to the US on a private jet after Australia’s agriculture minister at the … [Read more...] about Amber Heard still facing allegations of perjury in Australia weeks after losing Johnny Depp libel trial
A video accusing Amber Heard of "insinuating violence" when she made a seemingly innocent joke about her ankle boot has gone viral on TikTok. In January 2020, Aquaman star Heard shared photos on Instagram of herself sporting the orthopedic device as she vacationed in Hawaii with friends. And while Heard didn't publicly reveal exactly why she was wearing the boot at the time, a TikTok user revisited footage of the screen star discussing it with a videographer as she arrived at the Woman's March in January 2020. The videographer was heard saying as the Texas native exited a car on arrival at the Los Angeles event: "Hey Amber. How's your foot? What happened?" "You should see her," Heard quipped with a smile as she proceeded to sign autographs for fans. When asked if "it happened in Hawaii," Heard kept the jokes flowing as she responded: "Yeah, sharks are crazy there." Heard was then asked if that was "really what happened," prompting her to glare drily in the person's … [Read more...] about “Insinuating Violence”: Amber Heard clip at 2020 Women’s March goes viral

Maggie McMuffin, a 32-year-old bisexual femme based in New York, first realized she might have a breeding kink when she did a roleplay scene with a campmate at Burning Man. “We set up a scene where I was a princess and they were the dragon who held me captive,” she said. “[It] combined so many of my kinks: monster fucking, fairy-tale roleplay, consensual nonconsent, creampies. In the middle of the event, with them in a dragon mask and me fully blissed out, they broke character to ask, ‘Hey, how would you feel about this being an impregnation scene?’ They dirty talked about me, like, giving birth to these monster babies and throwing away my chances at a prince in order to keep fucking this dragon and I was like well! I guess I’m into this now!” Amid the overturning of Roe V. Wade and other regressive policy proposals centered on restricting reproductive rights, having a breeding kink may seem odd. But for practitioners, breeding addresses ideas of ownership and autonomy in a way that … [Read more...] about What Is A Breeding Kink?
MY favorite photograph of Kurt Weill captures the enigmatic quality of his life and music. At a rehearsal for the 1943 show Mary Martin sits atop an upright piano, her shapely legs dangling in front of the composer's face. Weill seems to be somewhere else. Baby-faced and bald, his eyes half closed, he seems to be playing for himself alone. His blank expression could mask humiliation or contempt or delight -- you can't tell. What is this professor doing on Broadway? This year is Kurt Weill's centenary, so the calendar is full of Weill events -- and for once there seems to be a real urgency to the commemorative festivities. Weill remains a cult composer, known mainly for a handful of songs; most of his complete works are rarely performed, and critical opinion is still unsettled. Hearing his works again -- particularly the revelatory early Second Symphony and the overpraised "Broadway opera" -- could restore balance to a reputation long skewed. The standard view of Weill divides … [Read more...] about Threepenny Composer
