Sometimes Bon Iver tenderly whispers, ‘Can I be the little spoon now?’
Sure, there’s procrasturbation in the Olin stacks come reading and finals week, but if that isn’t quite doing it for you anymore, check out boniverotica, or Bon Iver Erotic Stories. This Tumblr serves up bite-size anecdotes of romantic encounters with the band’s reclusive Grammy award-winning folk singer Justin Vernon, each one accompanied by visual stimuli—making it the perfect procrastination destination that isn’t too crass.
As far as I can tell, boniverotica hasn’t yet scored a semi-anonymous interview with Huff Post, but it has been featured on TIME’s website. According to the article, for today’s quality PD we can thank a trio of twentysomething professionals from Colorado, who all find Bon Iver “inexplicably sexy” and “just wanted to ravish him.” In about three days, their Tumblr had received about 100, 000 visitors.
Vernon does not appear to have commented on his newfound sex appeal, but his girlfriend, the singer-songwiter Kathleen Edwards, reportedly said: “A girl can dream.” The TIME reporter also claims that Ryan Gosling’s days as the “hipster hearthrob meme” of choice are numbered, but I’m inclined to believe the competition isn’t quite over yet.
