Welcome to the Inaugural Edition of The Twisted World, exploring Divine Decadence.
“Decadence” is a word given to the truly sinful, luxurious, and stylish. It consumes the senses, and makes you feel like you must be heading to the eternal blazes for indulging so deeply… and you know it’s totally worth it.
The original Latin form (“decadent”) even means to sink, to fall… and is an invitation to completely submit. What makes this Decadence so very Divine is the splendor of the feast before you…
