  • The inquiry announced today into claims of UK TV and radio personality Sir Jimmy Savile’s child sex abuse (spanning four decades) will be widened to take in allegations against living celebrities. The Metropolitan Police said it believed it had identified more than 200 victims of either the dead DJ or other stars. “We are dealing with alleged abuse on an unprecedented scale”, the senior officer leading the inquiry said.

  • Larry Flynt and others in the porn industry are fighting a ballot measure that will appear before Los Angeles County voters requiring pornographic movie performers to wear condoms during filming. Measure B will be on the countywide ballot Nov. 6. But both sides agree it will be tricky getting voters to even consider the point.

  • “The popularity of the 50 Shades of Gray books has been staggering. They have become the 9 1/2 Weeks of a new generation; glorifying the excitement of power, bondage, and…well, mind games. In fact, those who know what consensual BDSM participants actually do together have criticized the trilogy for portraying kinky sex as unhealthy and non-consensual.”
