Sign up for Amber Rose’s SlutBox if you love makeup, vibrators and giving a fuck about politics
This reformed slut votes!

I'm a sucker, so of course I'm privy to the contents of many a subscription box. It was almost a relief when I lost my debit card last week because it forced me to physically evaluate every single thing I'm being auto-charged for monthly. But I think Amber Rose might just've convinced me to type in my brand-new PIN.
So she's got a subscription box, the aptly-named SlutBox, and it's filled with the standard ~empowered~ female things you'd find in most of them like CBD-infused lube and cute sunglasses and rose-hued lip-liners all curated to help you lead your prettiest, sluttiest life. But Amber Rose doesn't just talk the slut talk — she walks the Slut Walk. And this month (themed "Let Freakdom Ring" lmao), her sex-positive Slut Walk rally and her sex-positive SlutBox are teaming up with the presumably sex-positive voter registration non-profit HeadCount to get you sluts to the voting booth.
Hey Rosebuds! 🌹 Have you checkout our my #Sluts4Love June box? 🌈 Everyone deserves love and I made sure to fill this box with lots of it for #pride ❤July is all about letting your freakdom ring, so if you haven’t signed up yet sis, go to @myslutbox now #myslutbox @realhermakeup @dirtybeauty @vye.eyewear @ellaparadis @overezofficial @rousecondoms @doctorlipbangs @thinkbeecause @notecosmeticsus @emk_skincare_official @thekushqueens
Inside every SlutBox, HeadCount placed a national voter registration form, an envelope to mail it back to your state board of election, and a post card that declares #ThisSlutVotes. That way we can, you know, effect actual change instead of whining about it on Twitter.
“Well, what were you wearing?” is not a valid question. It’s not the clothing one wears that causes rape, it’s the rapists. Join me for my 4th annual SlutWalk on October 6th 2018 at Pershing Square as we fight to end sexual injustice, derogatory labeling and gender inequality 🌹 #arsw18 (Vendors + Sponsors head to the site to claim your space 😍)
That's HeadCount's whole thing: getting young people to vote via things we'd probably be doing anyway, like going to a Beyoncé concert or signing up for subscription boxes filled with vibrating lip balm. To put it into numbers (which I always hate to do unless they're in my bank account but stick with me), 8 million kids have turned 18 since Donald Trump was elected. Only 55 percent of you dingbats under 24 are even registered to vote. So just do me a favor and register to vote, OK? It takes like 10 minutes — and your boss legally has to let you leave work to vote. Stretch it into half a day and claim the line was really long! I won't tell.
