For dudes who aren't into shaving, this is maybe the best month of the year. The chance to grow an epic stache -- all for an excellent cause. Oh Movember, how we've missed your wild whiskers.

To date, Movember participants have raised $559 million for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Four million moustaches have grown worldwide, and more upper lip fuzz is sprouting up every day.

To celebrate this monumental month, here's what's happening in South Florida.

Sugar Cum: Florida Company Creates Pill to Make Your Spunk Taste Sweet

HîPleasures via Facebook
It's unfortunate that in 2014, this far into human existence, American society at large still suffers from sexual apprehensions and taboos long shed by more progressive societies. Here at Cultist, we can't ignore the psychological ills of a sexually repressed society, and we do our part by concentrating on other forms of pleasure.

However, while some might consider this particular blog more appropriate for the experienced and more skilled hands of the Dan Savage school of writers, this new product, cheekily part of the "eating" experience, unfortunately falls slightly outside of our food section's bailiwick.

There are plenty of products out there -- largely unchecked and untested -- making wild claims running the gamut of strength, vitality, lasting power, enlargement, and heightened sensibility. Snake oils and magic beans mostly, but HîPleasures' newest product, the Sugar Cum pill, is in a league all its own.

There has been a shift in the nail game as of late. No longer can one rely on the generic safety of an old-fashioned French manicure, or the same color painted on all ten tips as a means of self-expression. Miami woman look beyond colored lines in search of geometric ones, and ones in the shape of Elmo, or British Flags, or maybe even Jerry Seinfeld's face. Who's judging? Whatever the wacky design of their dreams may be, the felines of our Magic City aren't settling for basic-bitch claws anymore. Because art on their nails is just as important as art on a graffiti-laden wall in Wynwood, right?

Yet despite this sweeping trend of either hand-painted nail plates or graphic wraps posing as such, for some peculiar reason, scoping out salons in the area that specialize in nail art is as difficult as stumbling across a decent paying job in Miami these days -- the struggle is real. Not to worry though, 'cause we've done the legwork for you and found a gang of trusty places around town to turn your nails from a desolate land of keratin to mini pieces of art.

Traffic on Biscayne Boulevard was horrendous this weekend, and with good reason. Oprah Winfrey, AKA God Herself, was in town to speak at the American Airlines Arena. Most graciously, she let a hoard of women and some gay men in on her secrets to a successful and fulfilling life, and if anyone knows how to achieve success and fulfillment, it's Oprah.

For the mindful individual, it was a lot of sage advice you may have heard before, but sage advice nonetheless. More than anything, Oprah's Live The Life You Want Weekend is a chance to see and hear the wondrous Winfrey in the flesh. Even we, in all our cynical glory, were moved by the mogul's comforting mix of wit, wisdom, and realness.

As it turns out, Oprah is that amazing. We totally get it.

Great news, gals: Miami is one of the nation's sugar daddy capitals. In a new study published by dating site Seeking Arrangement, Miami comes in at number 28 of 30 national cities that are the best spots to find that forever financier love.

We're actually a little surprised the Magic City didn't rank higher -- though this city is full of bros living at home and those spending all their income on car payments. Atlanta, it turns out, is the sugar daddy mecca, with the highest ratio of 19.84 sugar daddies per 1,000 males.

Every week there's an arbitrary new ranking released by some dubious website or publication: Miami ranks last in number of Ivy Leaguers, first in number of Brazilian butt lifts. It's great fodder, but how does Miami stack up when it comes to the stuff that actually matters?

Last night at the Bakehouse Art Complex, the Miami Foundation revealed the findings of a new report outlining how Miami is doing in eight key areas: arts & culture, civic engagement, economy, education, environment & public spaces, health & safety, housing & affordability, and transportation. There was lots to talk about.
