Kylie Jenner Transforms Into Marilyn Monroe and Proves Diamonds Really Are a Girl’s Best Friend

Kylie Jenner is a material girl living in a material world. On the actual Halloween holiday on Thursday, the 22-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star debuted a new Halloween costume, one of several seen in recent days. Kylie dressed up as late Hollywood sex icon and actress Marilyn Monroe from her performance of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" from the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes for a V magazine video cover shoot. Madonna famously paid tribute to it in her 1985 music video "Material Girl." For the shoot, the reality star wore a short blonde wig and magenta strapless dress, plus diamond jewelry. She was accompanied by a swarm of male models holding up red paper hearts. "In rocky times, there's a general notion that pop culture and its icons are gratuitous. 'How can you be talking about this while this is happening?' is the pervasive question," the magazine stated. "To a certain extent, that type of discourse [...]

D.C. leaders hear from public over proposal to decriminalize sex work

WASHINGTON - Five hours into a Thursday hearing on a controversial bill that would decriminalize the sex trade in the nation's capital, District of Columbia Councilmember Charles Allen, a Democrat, implored the crowd to settle down. He hammered his gavel. He called for a recess. But it was no use. Tensions and disagreements that had been simmering since the morning exploded on the floor before the council's Public Safety Committee. Sex workers and their supporters broke into chants of "decrim now!" as those opposed to the bill rose from their seats. Each side shook their heads at the other. The bill at the center of the hearing would amend existing city laws to eliminate criminal penalties for selling or buying sex in D.C. If passed, it would make the city the only U.S. jurisdiction to legalize prostitution, outside of some areas of Nevada where legal brothels exist. Prostitution involving minors and coercing others to engage in sex work against their [...]

Is Online Dating a Waste of Time?

I’ve been online dating for many many years now. I like online dating both as a relationship coach and a person looking to find, what I hope will be, a long-term partner/husband. What are the benefits: *You get to see their profile and filter through it prior to them even contacting you or knowing about you *Often there are questions such as OKCupid.com that you can see a % of compatibility *You can chat with them via the chat system before meeting or talking on the phone, giving personal info out. *You get important information about them that you cannot or may not get just meeting organically. Is online dating a safer choice? For me as a single woman, it is important to see how much they drink, do they smoke, want more kids ( I’m done with childbirth) those things can be asked in conversation when you meet organically however with chemistry affecting our thinking because our brain is [...]

Trump ‘never call a woman beautiful again.’ Experts explain why that’s simplistic

At a rally Monday night, President Trump said that he can’t call his daughter Ivanka “beautiful” anymore thanks to political correctness. “Now I don’t know if they’ll say this is nepotism, but the truth is she’s a very, very — you’re not allowed to use the word beautiful anymore when you talk about women, you’re not allowed, no, no, it’s politically incorrect,” he said, according to Newsweek. “I will never call a woman beautiful again, and every man here, every man here, raise your hand, you will never say your wife, your girlfriend, anybody is beautiful, right?” “I’m not allowed to say, because it’s my daughter Ivanka, but she’s really smart,” he continued. “And she’s here — shall I bring her up?” Even Ivanka seemed surprised by her father’s comments. “Wow. Hi, Ohio,” she said when she got to the podium. “That was some introduction.” The president actually is incorrect, Jaclyn Friedman, author of books on [...]

The 4 ways ‘Black Mirror’s’ vision of online dating is actually better than Tinder

The 4 ways ‘Black Mirror’s’ vision of online dating is actually better than Tinder To some, the singles scene has already hit apocalyptic territory. So what would a fictional dating dystopia look like? In its fourth season, the Netflix series “Black Mirror” makes a pretty good guess. Its episode follows Frank (Joe Cole) and Amy (Georgina Campbell), who are stuck in an online dating experiment called the System, which pairs users off for finite amounts of time (anywhere from 12 hours to several years) while collecting data on their preferences so that it can one day deliver their one true love. At first “Hang the DJ’s” premise appears to be a more cheerful version of “The Lobster,” a dark comedy about a hotel where singles are sent to meet their match, or else. After 45 days, those who don’t find a suitable mate get turned into the animal of their choosing. It took the idea of [...]

Sex Workers Australian wives furious over proposal to send sex workers to troops

Sex Workers in Australia Jane Taylor* has a lot of things to worry about when her husband is deployed. Will he come home alive? Will her kids see their dad again? But until last month, “Will he slip up and sleep with a taxpayer-funded sex worker?” wasn’t one of them. Like many military wives, Brisbane, Australia, resident Jane was horrified to read Australian army Capt. Sally Williamson recommending prostitutes be sent to the front line to help “relieve stress” in serving troops. In an essay titled “Sex and War – A Conversation Army Has To Have” published on an official Australian Defence Force website last month, Williamson suggested the army “contract Australian male and female sex workers to service troops in forward operating bases and air bases.” Williamson said sex on deployment could help ease the stress of “loneliness or prolonged absence from family, friends, partners and spouses” as well as make it easier [...]
