    “The water is meant to represent gender and sexual fluidity,” Mr. Singh said, seated beneath a 1988 Herb Ritts portrait of Cindy Crawford. The women who would pose in that water — their limbs wrapped around one another in a balletlike pose — were not simply models but activists. One uses performance art and digital media to share stories about the H.I.V. epidemic. Another is an underwater dancer who promotes ocean conservation. The third, a Belgian artist, recently filmed herself walking naked through a Hasidic neighborhood of Brooklyn during a sacred holiday.

    “Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old. This is America’s dirty little secret. Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns. As investigative journalist Amy Fine...

    GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — A man now living in Indiana is suing his parents after he says they destroyed his valuable porn collection. FOX 17 is choosing to identify the plaintiff in this story as "Charlie," as this is a civil case without any associated criminal charges. The case dates back to October 2016 when, according to a lawsuit filed this week, Charlie moved into his parents' home in Grand Haven after going through a divorce from his wife. Charlie apparently stayed for 10 months in their home, doing housework in lieu of paying rent. He was asked to leave...

    BUFFALO, New York, March 25, 2019, LifeSiteNews — Despite being under fire for multiple alleged coverups of clergy sex abuse, the Diocese of Buffalo has returned a priest with penchant for male pornography to service. Bishop Richard J. Malone reinstated Fr. Robert A. Stolinski, saying “allegations of child sexual abuse” against the priest “have not been substantiated.” While the Bishop’s statement noted that the decision is based on recent reports of investigators as well as the advice and recommendations of the independent Diocesan Review Board, the fact remains that Stolinski has a long, troubling history of indulging in male pornography,...

    en. Kamala D. Harris of California joined the 2020 presidential contest on Monday, thrusting a daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India into the Democratic race two years after she arrived in the Senate. Harris, a 54-year-old former prosecutor raised in a state that has been the crucible of the Trump resistance, expanded a growing field of candidates fighting for the nomination of a party that is increasingly nonwhite and fueled by women alienated by the president. She made the announcement during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in a video that her campaign posted online.

    California Sen. Kamala Harris announced Monday that she will run for president in 2020, joining an increasingly crowded field of Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald Trump. Harris' announcement, made on "Good Morning America," comes following months of speculation surrounding the Democrat, a rising star in the party who was elected California's junior senator in 2016 after two terms as the state's attorney general. "I love my country. I love my country," she said. "This is a moment in time that I feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are."

    Pornographers are bracing for the first major obscenity clampdown in three decades under President Trump’s new pick for attorney general, William Barr, a strident social conservative whose views threaten the lucrative industry. Anti-porn campaigners were thrilled with Trump's selection of Barr, previously attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, noting his enthusiastic obscenity prosecutions in the early ‘90s. Pornographers are taking the threat seriously, but argue a crackdown would be hypocritical under the thrice-married Trump. His links to the industry include softcore Playboy cameos, an alleged affair with Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal, an alleged tryst with hardcore star...

    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    The Rev. W. Thomas Faucher, a longtime priest in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise who pleaded guilty to five felony crimes, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison without parole and will be required to register as a sex offender. Faucher, 73, was accused of amassing thousands of child porn images and videos on his home computer — and pleaded guilty in September to sharing some of those images online. He apologized in the courtroom ahead of his sentencing at the Ada County Courthouse in Boise on Thursday. “This is the crime that has the potential for both...

    Media figures are treating two new porn bans as complete opposites. But they should be celebrating both – for the same reason.On Dec. 3, Tumblr declared that it would ban porn and other adult content beginning Dec. 17. The decision closely followed headlines announcing Starbucks will block pornography and illegal content from its Wi-Fi starting in 2019. But while media commentators applauded the coffee chain, many of them condemned the blogging platform. They’re wrong.To begin with, Tumblr and Starbucks came to their conclusions under different circumstances. Tumblr had faced consequences for child pornography leaking onto its site, reported CBS News,...

    The multi-national coffee chain Starbucks, which has 28,916 shops worldwide and 14,451 in the United States, said it would provide pornography-free Wi-Fi in its U.S. stores starting in 2019. This is happening because of pressure, over many years, from a coalition led by the internet safety group Enough is Enough (EIE). In an email to Business Insider, a Starbucks representative said the company had “identified a solution” to block porn in its U.S. stores, which it would implement in 2019 – over two years after the coffee chain initially said it would do so, and six years after it began...

    Archaeologists have unearthed a sensual fresco depicting the Ancient Greek myth of Leda and the Swan on a bedroom wall in Pompeii. While the story might not appeal to modern sensibilities, the legend that Leda, the beautiful queen of Sparta, was seduced – or raped, depending on how you see it – by the king of the gods disguised as a swan was apparently a titillating subject for Ancient Romans. In an astonishingly well preserved fresco revealed to the public this week, the moment is depicted as a non-violent encounter: Leda reclines languidly, gazing directly at the viewer, as the...

Thirty-nine-year-old Thomas Close, of Shelby in central Ohio's Richland County, was arrested and indicted Thursday on sexual exploitation of children and receiving and distributing child pornography charges.

    Joshua Schulte, a former CIA computer engineer suspected of leaking classified hacking tools to WikiLeaks, said he is being subjected to “torture” while awaiting trial for espionage. Mr. Schulte, 30, said he is being inexplicably held in solitary confinement and denied access to his medication, writing materials, legal documents and lawyer, according to a letter addressed to U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty filed in Manhattan federal court Monday. “My fellow slaves constantly scream, pound and claw at their cages attempting to get attention for basic needs to be fulfilled. I count myself lucky to be able to eat,” he wrote...

    An Ohio woman has been arrested and returned to Pennsylvania to face charges she created pornographic images of her 3-year-old daughter.

The crimes allegedly occurred when Parker lived with her boyfriend in Upper Darby, outside Philadelphia. Her boyfriend, David Carbonaro, is awaiting trial in Delaware County. He is charged with 68 counts including possession of and dissemination of child pornography. During a search at Carbonaro's residence, investigators allegedly discovered...

    If the birds and bees followed Planned Parenthood's new guidelines concerning them, they would eventually have to be put on the endangered species list. The nation's largest provider of abortions has new guidelines out on how to talk about sex to preschoolers. Having made it out of the womb (some against Planned Parenthood's better advice), toddlers are now to be indoctrinated in the ideology of the Gender Deniers that holds that biology has nothing to do with gender. While its earlier guidelines advised telling preschoolers, "Women have breasts, men don't," it's new guidelines suggest saying, "Those are nipples. Everybody has...

    Pornography is single-handedly one of the worst epidemics facing the Evangelical church today. There are a myriad of other factors which appear to be eroding the Western church from the inside-out, yet Evangelicals scarcely address the root of the problem of pornography within the church. On the whole, human sexuality is undergoing an existential crisis. Yet the church is placed squarely in the midst of this crisis, often not even addressing its own underlying issues until far too late. Leader after leader (after leader!) disqualifies himself through sexual misconduct, all the while the name of Christ is slandered. Lest we...
