    U.S. suicide rates are at the highest level since World War II, according to a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, per Bloomberg's Cynthia Koons. By the numbers: From 2000 to 2006, the suicide rate in the U.S. increased by an average of about 1% a year. From 2006 through 2016, it increased by 2% a year. There were 1.4 million suicide attempts in 2017 and 47,000 deaths. Why it matters: Despite an improvement of material well-being, emotional distress in the U.S. has reached "crisis levels," according to the CDC. Koons reports that the national mental health epidemic...

  • For Dems – Is There Life After Biden? (Short Answer: No)

    Short answer: No! Biden is on his way out. He will not survive having flipped on capital punishment and gay marriage, having recruited Southern racists — albeit with civility — to join his drive to kill school busing in the 70s, coming out for and then against the Hyde Amendment, being accused of groping women, and watching his son get pilloried for using his dad’s power to make millions in Ukraine and China. Biden is staggering. He has fallen from 43 percent to 31 percent in the past six weeks. And he will fall further. He is coming across as...

    Everybody does.Let’s start here: Julia Roberts reveals original ending for ‘Pretty Woman’ — and you’d be shocked.In an interview in Variety magazine this week Julia Roberts revealed that the original ending of Pretty Woman as written was anything but the fairy tale ending of “prostitute-falls-in-love-with-a-rich-john-and-they-both-live-happily-ever-after.” She explained that the original script was “really dark and the ending was really heavy.” In fact the original script ended with Robert’s character, the prostitute Vivian Ward, left sprawled out in a dirty alley where Richard Gere’s character, Edward Lewis, had chucked her out of the car. For good measure, and to get the...

    Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren talk decriminalizing prostitution WASHINGTON – The two progressive presidential candidates backing Queens District Attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán are also backing her on one of her signature issues. Cabán wants to decriminalize sex work, arguing that the current laws go after people who are destabilized by the current economic system. “This is literally how they put food on their tables,” Cabán said in a debate Tuesday. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) – who endorsed Cabán Wednesday – said he was open to the idea as well. “Bernie believes that decriminalization is certainly something that should be considered,” Sanders’...

A group of lawmakers first called for legislation in February, but on Monday they finally came forward with a 13-page bill that would bring dramatic changes to the sex trade in the state.

But this year, one day before the start of LGBT Pride, the President tweeted the following:“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals...

    Donna Summer sings, "No one seems to know her name, and even less about the place from where she came," in her 1976 song Lady of the Night. Flash forward 40 years and it seems those lyrics are more applicable to the nightly CNN audience than they are to a prostitute. As reported by Newsbusters, the latest cable news ratings indicate that CNN primetime has just 760,000 viewers, officially making members of the oldest profession more prominent in America than fans of the cable news network. Newsbusters Rich Noyes reports there are an estimated 1 million prostitutes currently in the...

    A lewd catalog of Victorian London's secret brothels that details the capital's once booming sex trade has sold at auction for over £4,000. The rare first edition of Swell's Night Guide Through the Metropolis lists the clubs, pubs, bars and theatres where ladies of the night could be found. And the erotic 1841 illustrated guide to the city's prostitute hotspots does not mince its words and even scores sex workers on their looks, with grades ranging from 'a perfect English beauty' to a rather less flattering 'fair, fat and 50'. But although some of the descriptions are quite comical, the...

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.

    A Long Island man ran a prostitution ring out of his parents' sprawling suburban home, enticing women with drugs and locking them in the basement where they were forced to use a bucket instead of a bathroom, prosecutors said Thursday. Raymond Rodio III, 47, used social media to recruit women, got them hooked on heroin and crack cocaine, and forced them to have sex with men in the basement of the Sound Beach home or at nearby motels, Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini said. Police uncovered the alleged prostitution ring after a routine traffic stop last August. Officers recognized...

    Yang Song fell four stories onto a sidewalk in Flushing, Queens on the night of November 25th. An officer with the New York City Police Department accompanied her, unconscious, to New York Presbyterian Hospital where doctors placed her on a respirator. They worked for hours: the 35 units of blood they transfused did not take, given the severity of her injuries from the thirty foot fall. NYPD later said that Yang fell from an apartment building on 40th Road while police were attempting to arrest her for allegedly engaging in sex work. These were among the sparse details they released...

The former stripper says she wasn't trying to glorify her actions, but felt it was necessary at the time. **SNIP** Cardi says the men she spoke about in the video were ones she dated and they were "conscious, willing and aware."

    Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris recently supported legalizing prostitution in an interview she gave to the Root: “But when you are talking about consenting adults, I think that you know, yes, we should really consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior as long as no one is being harmed,” she said, meaning that she would still support laws that would punish human trafficking and exploitation of women. Surprisingly—or not—this idea has also been embraced by certain segments on the right, especially among libertarians. Elizabeth Nolan Brown, an associate editor at Reason Magazine and an advocate of the sex trade, said Harris...

    Decriminalizing prostitution — an idea gaining momentum among some Democrats, including at least one 2020 presidential contender — may one day be traced back to the hookers plying their trade under the elevated train along New York City’s Roosevelt Avenue. That open-air market of prostitutes and johns in Queens, undeterred by the constant threat of arrest and incarceration, has been cited by New York state lawmakers mulling whether it’s time to wave the white flag in the war on the world’s oldest profession.
