4 Disturbing Alternatives to a Tupperware Party

By Jennifer Byrne | 186,610 Views

Product-selling parties (like Mary Kay cosmetics demonstrations and those dildo parties that women always seem to be having in zany romantic comedies) are traditionally harmless reminders of how little your friends actually value your company.
