Guidance for Female Instagram Models: Navigating Comments, DMs, and Establishing Boundaries with Grace and Efficiency

Instagram has become a powerful platform for female models to showcase their talents, personalities, and beauty to a vast and engaged audience. With increasing popularity comes a growing number of interactions from followers, admirers, and potential fans. However, managing comments on posts and direct messages (DMs) can be overwhelming for many models, leading to stress and confusion about how to engage with their audience effectively whilst not appearing rude or aloof to proper fans.

In this post, we aim to provide comprehensive guidance for female Instagram models on how to handle comments on posts and DMs while establishing clear boundaries to maintain a positive and respectful online presence.… Click here to continue reading this article

Why Women Flaunt Themselves on Instagram

Why Women Flaunt Themselves on Instagram

Instagram is teeming with accounts featuring girls dressed in stockings, lingerie, and scanty clothing, striking seductive poses, which are often managed by the women themselves. In this article, we will delve into the intriguing motivations that lead these women to confidently showcase themselves on the platform, focusing on the quest for financial gain and validation.

Accounts Run by Women Themselves

Let us be clear about the accounts we are discussing: those operated by women themselves, not those that inappropriately utilise content, often without consent, from others across the platform to create pages like “girls with long legs,” “girls in stockings,” or “girls with sexy feet.”… Click here to continue reading this article

Stockings and Stocking Tops in Fashion in China, Korea and Japan

In this article, we are going to look at fashion in China, Japan, and Korea and specifically stockings and showing stocking tops.

In the West, depending on the social situation, showing stocking tops can sometimes be regarded as a little taboo or exhibitionist. We have an article discussing this here: Is It OK to Show Your Stocking Tops in the UK?

However, in China, Korea, and Japan, they are often regarded more as a fashion item, and showing them off is nothing to be frowned upon.

Stockings and Stocking Tops in Fashion in China, Korea and Japan

A point of language clarity for US and non-British readers: in British English when we refer to stockings, we mean either stockings that are held up with a garter (suspender) belt or hold-up stockings (what are often called thigh highs or stay-ups overseas).

The UK Had the Best Political Satire TV Shows in the 1980s

There are several reasons why the UK had some of the best political satire TV shows in the 1980s.

Firstly, the 1980s was a decade of great political change in the UK. Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister, and her Conservative government pursued a radical (some would say common sense) agenda of free-market policies and privatisation. This provided rich material for satirists, who could use comedy to critique and satirise the government’s policies and actions.

Secondly, the UK has a strong tradition of political satire, dating back to the 18th century when satirical prints were used to mock and critique political figures.… Click here to continue reading this article

How to Watch the Original Spitting Image Chicken Song

If you want to watch the video of the original Spitting Image Chicken Song, you’re in the right place.

The original Spitting Image Chicken Song video from 1986 has been purged from the internet it seems (probably because it offends the Wokerati nowadays), but we’ve found it. It’s not searchable on YouTube anymore, only feeble non-original variants exist.

But you’re looking for the original with the Aerodago and Frogaire shots at the beginning, right?

How to Access Russian Media in the UK

How to access Russian media in the UK: You may have noticed RT (formerly Russia Today) and other Russian media outlets are blocked in the UK.

When you try and access Russian media in the UK, you’ll quickly discover that our internet is actually rather censored. The UK government, in conjunction with ISPs get to decide what you get to see.

It’s not only if you try to access Russian media sites from the UK, but also many file-sharing and other sites are sometimes blocked here too.

Try these links to two regular Russian sites to see if they are blocked for you in the UK:

How to Stop Paying the TV Licence

How to stop paying the TV Licence. Is it possible to avoid paying for the TV Licence?

Yes, it is, and I’m going to show you how.

First, we should cover who legally doesn’t need to pay the TV Licence, or TV Tax as I prefer to call it.

In the UK, there are certain groups of people who are exempt from paying the TV licence fee. These include:

  • People aged 75 or over who receive Pension Credit.
  • People who are blind or severely sight impaired.
  • People who live in residential care homes or nursing homes.

A Tory BBC? Everyone I Met There in 25 Years Was Flaming Red

It’s often said that when someone emerges into the world from university and likes what they see, they will go into the City or into business and they will devote their lives to making money and going to parties and having fun. However, if they leave university and think the world is all broken and full of injustice, they will try to change the system. Which means they will add a rainbow emoji to their Twitter bio and join the BBC.

Of course, in recent weeks we have been told over and over again that this is emphatically not the case.… Click here to continue reading this article

It’s not Big Brother I fear but Huxley’s world of mindless trivia

In the excellent article below, Matthew Syed discusses if we are lost in a sea of data online and if the truth is lost in a sea of irrelevance. This article first appeared in the Sunday Times.

We’ve never had so much information at our fingertips — and so little wisdom to do anything useful with it

In the time it takes you to reach the end of this paragraph, 15 million emails will have been sent, 30,000 tweets and three million Facebook updates. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of blogs, Instagram posts and news articles will have been added to a running total measured in billions.… Click here to continue reading this article

Review: Diddly Squat Farm Shop. Clarkson’s Farm. What to Expect.

If you want to visit Clarkson’s Farm, aka Diddly Squat Farm Shop, we were there a few days ago so can give you the inside skinny together with a few thoughts.

Regular readers know that we’re big fans of Jeremy Clarkson and occasionally republish the odd article of his here on the site.

Many only know him from Top Gear, Grand Tour, or Clarkson’s Farm, but in fact, he cut his teeth as a writer. He writes for the Sunday Times, The Sun and has written many books (many of which are just his newspaper articles republished together – but still worth reading twice).… Click here to continue reading this article

They’re IT guys, and we let them silence a president

This article first appeared in the Sunday Times.

The era of free speech online is over. The indefinite suspension of Donald Trump’s Twitter account, following his suspension from Facebook, is a profound moment from which there is no going back. The tech giants have essentially asserted their right to police democratic politics, even to censor democratically elected presidents, depriving Trump of the primary means by which he addresses the American public.

Political debate online will now be firmly subject to the whims and prejudices of unaccountable billionaires. And this is being cheered by people who call themselves liberal.… Click here to continue reading this article

Bang & Olufsen Speaker Bases: Where to Get Screw in Feet for Laminate and Wooden Floors.

Bang & Olufsen Speakers: Where to Get Screw in Feet. If you’ve bought yourself a previously enjoyed pair of Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 8000 or similar B&O speakers, you may well find that on the bottom of them are four screw-in spikes on each corner of the speaker base.

The spikes are designed for when the speakers are sitting on the carpet in order that they can penetrate through the carpet and make contact with the floorboards below so the speakers are firmly grounded.

But you don’t want to put those four spikes under such a heavy speaker base in contact with your laminate or wooden floor, do you?… Click here to continue reading this article

Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Donald Trump and Meghan Markle.

Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Donald Trump and Meghan Markle and not three obvious names you might think are likely to come together in one article.

What about I throw some Brexit in?

In an internet forum discussion (ostensibly on Donald Trump but frequently on other things) recently, a bloke said this to me:

Read up on Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi and his views:

Well, I’d never heard of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi. But from the link I found an interesting quote:

“The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice.

Teddy Boys and the Rock’n’Roll Revival

During a period of about ten years between the tail end of the 1960s and that of the 1970s, youth culture had been hit by a wave of nostalgia.

From the Beatles with their faux Victorian bandleader costumes on the cover of the Sgt Pepper LP, to the 1930s stylings of groups like Fox and Sailor, to the fifties pastichery and revival, which can be seen in rock groups as diverse as Roxy Music and Mud.

The revival of interest in the 1950s was particularly interesting, as not only was it the only one that revived a period of youth culture, but it also ushered in a (mostly brief) revival in the careers of many fifties stars.… Click here to continue reading this article

The Phenomenon that was The Shangri-las

Although rock and pop music has always been a phenomenon that has attracted fans of both sexes, the role of female artists in its development has frequently been marginalised by critics, unless the artiste under consideration has been deemed ‘authentic’ enough to pass muster.

This is especially true in the case of the artists who started to emerge at the end of the 1950s, after the commercial demise of the first generation of rock’n’rollers.

These second-generation artists are frequently dismissed as an anachronism, something that simply filled the gap between the demise of their predecessors and the rise of artists who were considered important in intellectual terms from very early on, most notably the Beatles and Bob Dylan.… Click here to continue reading this article

David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust and the construction of an image.

In 1972, David Bowie released his fifth album, Ziggy Stardust.

Up until that year, Bowie had been perceived in the main as a folk singer-only other success till that point was Space Oddity, 1969, which was largely perceived then as a novelty song, used by the BBC for their coverage of the 1st man in space that year.

Bowie had problems following up the success of this track, which had reached no. 5 in the charts, and despite critical acclaim for the succeeding albums, it appeared that Bowie would remain a one-hit wonder.… Click here to continue reading this article

What is a Cult Film?

The interest in cult cinema seems to stem from 1950s America, as the spending power of the teenage consumer was increasingly catered for, not least by the movie industry.

This was the period in which television was permeating the American home, more so than even in Britain, and cinema increasingly had to resort to shock tactics and sensationalism to lure in audiences. Sophistication was not an option; studios knocked out cheapie flicks with lurid, disposable feels such as the 1956 film The Girl Can’t Help it.

This was a lightweight but enjoyable film, which had cameo appearances by various prominent rock’n’rollers such as Little Richard, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Fats Domino, which although largely superfluous to the plot, gave the film ‘teen appeal’.… Click here to continue reading this article

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is maverick 1960s porn purveyor Russ Meyer’s finest achievement.

Mayer had made many low budget flicks before this, like Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, a great film depicting the adventures of three psychopathic go-go-dancers (it’s as good as it sounds).

But Beyond the Valley was his first for a major studio, and as well as having a higher budget (all the better for filming the crowd scenes and financing an appearance by The Strawberry Alarm Clock, a late 60s rock group that was on the wane).… Click here to continue reading this article
