  • In a push by the Federal Government, US universities are required to strengthen their policies and punishments with respect to sexual assault. When Yale University released its guidelines, it caught flack because in some instances students convicted by the university of sexual assault would not be expelled. Yale University followed up on this criticism by releasing a series of hypothetical scenarios to provide students with guidance as to how the university defines consent.

  • A former president of the American Psychological Association (APA), who also introduced the motion to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness in 1975, says that the APA has been taken over by “ultraliberals” beholden to the “gay rights movement,” who refuse to allow an open debate on reparative therapy for homosexuality.

  • Brock Keeling writes, “If you’ve walked around San Francisco’s Castro District recently, you might have come across a scene like this: a gaggle of smiling penises starring at you from select storefronts. Don’t be frightened. It’s all a part of the Healthy Penis campaign, a program designed to make you and your beautiful penis healthier.”

  • Strippers now qualify for minimum wage – why you should care: According to a district judge, strippers need to receive the same wages and labor protection as any other full-time employee. And that’s good news for workers everywhere. What do strip clubs have to do with labor law? Well, Judge Paul A. Engelmayer of the Southern District ruled this week in a class action suit that women working at a Rick’s Cabaret in Manhattan had been unfairly denied wage and labor protections due to the club misclassifying them as independent contractors and not regular employees.

  • And now, I become an Eat24 customer… Hooray for open minds! Food delivery service Eat24 is taking an unusual advertising tactic: Instead of avoiding X-rated platforms, the company is seeking them out — and focusing part of their ad campaign on porn websites. “We’re always looking for new and unique ways to spread our brand message. As far as mainstream brand advertising goes, porn is about as ‘different’ as you can get. With the high traffic and low cost, it was an easy decision to just go for it,” explains Amir Eisentstein, the company’s social media chief.

  • Adult film companies are suing L.A. County trying to block implementation of the condom law, known as Measure B. Last month, a federal judge ruled the law was constitutional. “There will be a mass exodus if we lose this lawsuit,” says Diane Duke of the Free Speech Coalition, a trade group representing the adult film industry. “Porn companies will leave L.A. County. We’ll see if it happens out of state as well.”

  • Warning for sexual trauma and assault survivors on this one. More than one in ten men surveyed in six Asian countries said they had raped a woman who was not their partner – and that figure rose to nearly one in four when wives and girlfriends were included among the victims. For the study, part of a UN project, researchers surveyed more than 10,000 men aged 18-49 in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka.

  • Okay, so USB condoms actually don’t have anything to do with sex. But have you ever plugged your phone into a strange USB port because you really needed a charge and thought: “Gee who could be stealing my data?”. We all have needs…
