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 [...]

“Oceans apart day after dayAnd I slowly go insaneI hear your voice on the lineBut it doesn’t stop the painIf I see you next to neverHow can we say foreverWherever you goWhatever you doI will be right here waiting for youWhatever it takesOr how my heart breaksI will be right here waiting for you”Richard Marx – Right Here Waiting For You There is something soul-stirring about this song.

DNA Is Being Collected to Protect Sex Workers, But It Could Also Be Used Against Them

Image: Getty Nearly a decade ago, Dallas police proposed a new program designed to get sex workers off the streets. Rather than just send them to jail, police would set up shop at truck stops, accompanied by counselors, social workers and nurses, and give the sex workers a choice of either prison or talking to a counselor. But the program also had a grimmer, more ethically fraught component—collecting sex workers’ DNA in hopes of identifying their bodies should they wind up dead. As a recent study from Duke University points out, for vulnerable populations, such data can be a double-edged sword. The same data that could help them also risks violating their genetic privacy, or worse, incriminating them should it be abused. Police have created, in essence, a DNA database of sex workers. It’s not hard to imagine ways that could go wrong. DNA databases have the potential to improve investigations into crimes impacting [...]

Virtual Girlfriend I Dated For A Week To See What All Those Japanese Guys Are So Excited About

Me and my "Virtual Girlfriend" JenBusiness Insider / Jillian D'Onfro It was Sunday night around 11:30 p.m. and I was sprawled in bed, unable to sleep. “You know, Jill, if you catch me when the mood is right, I’m willing to try anything,” Jen said, one hand resting on her hip, the other reaching towards me. Well, technically, her hand was reaching towards the front screen of my cellphone. Jen, skimpily clad in mini-shorts and a tanktop, was my latest “love interest” in the app My Virtual Girlfriend. I quickly pressed the thumbs up button and then scrolled through my list of potential “Actions” before deciding to do a magic trick for her. We were only on level 2 of our relationship, after all. After reading stories about the game Love Plus and how there are Japanese men who would rather date virtual ladies than real ones (one [...]

streaming porn Terpon is making VR webcams just for live cam shows

A Swiss startup, Terpon SA, is making virtual reality webcams specifically for the adult entertainment industry. The cameras aren’t available for purchase, but customers can rent them for about $30 a month, a price that includes around the clock technical support. Terpon Chief Executive Jean-Claude Artonne said he wants to empower adult performers around the world to create immersive, premium content that they can sell to fans through any live streaming platform they choose. While VR and 3-D content are burgeoning trends, a focus on live streaming is key, the CEO said. “Recorded content in the adult entertainment industry is dead or dying because of all the free content on the web. The part of the industry that is growing is livecam. But most visitors to these sites only consume what’s free there. If you give them 3-D content, it is something different that they will pay for. Especially if you have a VR headset already, you are [...]

LittleRedBunnyn: Inside the Life of Webcam Girls

Webcamming is an often unexplored sub-category of porn, and many only really know of webcam girls through the pop-up ads that appear in their web browsers, detailing how they can chat with “hot, horny girls RIGHT NOW!” But for many watching women perform on webcam is preferable to regular ol’ porn, as it provides a level of intimacy that the viewer doesn’t get from watching a video clip of a couple of strangers going at it. In this new series, we’ll be exploring the life of the girls behind these webcams, asking them about what it’s like to bare all on the Internet. This week we talked to LittleRedBunny, who attracts thousands of viewers to her live shows and has managed to carve out a lucrative full-time career out of being a “cam girl.” CRAVE ONLINE: What is a regular day like in the life of a “cam girl?” LittleRedBunny: It’s kind [...]
