Japanese face slimmer is TOTALLY NOT a sex toy

Get your mind out of the gutter

Ha ha, very funny, Beavis and Butthead, so you think this Japanese face slimmer is some kind of a typically kinky sex toy? Nope. Not at all. It is the product of rigorously legitimate beauty pseudo-science, and only to be used for its intended purpose. To suggest otherwise undermines our intelligence and demeans our maturity.

To get and maintain the perfect visage, you don’t need the cosmetic surgeon’s knife. All you need is a mouthpiece. Yes, the Face Slimmer is a simple solution to the timeless problem of how to give sagging facial skin and muscles that much-needed daily lift. Just three minutes per day is all you need; pop in the mold and then make mouth movements. The makers recommend you say vowel sounds out loud over and over again, producing regular and methodical exercises that will strength the twelve facial expression muscles in a comprehensive way.

Just don’t forget to say those vowel sounds out loud over and over again… Their words, not mine.

See?!? It’s a totally nonsexual beauty product! And for a pittance of 61 US Dollars, you too, can look like a beautiful, slim-faced blow-up doll!

Re-Make/Re-Model: Plastic surgery, androgyny and the future of beauty

A friend of mine recently posted a link on Facebook to a series of photos titled A New Kind of Beauty by photographer Mr. Toledano. When I hit on link I was immediately taken aback by the power of his imagery.

Are these people the shock troops of the future of the human body? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I’m starting to see a lot of similar faces on news anchors, TV and movie stars and magazine models. Is some sort of new consensus on what constitutes “beauty” in our era being drawn?

Mr. Toledano writes:

Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?

When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?

Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?

What if Photoshop was an actual beauty product?

I want to shake Jesse Rosten‘s hand, the writer and director of this awesome fake commercial titled “Fotoshop by Adobé.”

Jesse says, “This commercial isn’t real, neither are society’s standards of beauty.”

The Beauty Advantage

Hypnotic animation—this is an ad, really, but it’s a soft sell—to get people interested to read the Newseek special report on The Beauty Advantage (which is quite interesting). There’s a fairly amusing punchline, but I won’t spoil it for you.
