Rebels Without Their Clothes

It's been five years since these inked-up, pierced and painted beauties took the Net by storm

Missy Suicide will tell you that although her rebellious soft-porn site exploded in popularity, it's still subversive. The religious right has not yet hopped on the Suicide Girls bandwagon, she laughs, and that's who makes the decisions these days. The ride over the last five years hasn’t always been smooth; there's been a touch of controversy here and there. Some folks, for instance, were troubled to find out the site isn’t woman-owned and operated. Instead, Missy (Selena Mooney) and Sean "Spooky" Suhl cofounded it in Portland, Ore., in 2001. Also, some models have revolted against the company, claiming a stifling contract and mistreatment, allegations Missy refutes in the "trash can" section on the site.
