Injection parties


“Wealthy women are going to injection parties,” said Dr. Daniel Kane, a plastic surgeon in Miami who treats complications from these procedures. “They tell each other: ‘So-and-so is having a guy over to inject stuff. She looks gorgeous.’ And then they go. They’re proud of it, until they have a problem.”*

If this is your idea of doing something racy that you can be proud of, you’d best stick to collecting wild bird’s eggs or butterflies! Or even ashtrays and bathrobes nabbed from hotels!
