Sipping Pee and Tripping Balls, Herpes in Space and What She’s Looking for When She Goes Through Your Phone

Going through someone’s phone with or without their permission is just wrong. It’s like if a cop showed up at your door and demanded to look around your place: You wouldn’t just let that them inside, would you?

Like the first man to let fruit juice sit around for a while and turn into wine, it’s only natural that a psychonaut would stumble into discovering that some magic mushrooms work better after passing through an animal’s digestive system.

Sup, Broheim

Much like “titty,” “tittay” or “tiddy,” there are quite a number of variations of one of humankind’s favorite fraternal abbrevs, “bro.” There’s “brah.” There’s also “bruh,” “brev” and “breh.” They all mean the same thing, and yet, they’re all used in different contexts.

Not to single out the latter, but this being a men’s site, Tracy Moore was happy to describe in deleted-photos-clicking detail what she’s really looking for when she goes through yours.
