    We've heard some weird political arguments this year. The strangest of them is raging in California, where else? There the hotly contested question revolves around an electoral initiative known as Proposition 60. Prop 60 is a ballot baby that only Californians could conceive. The state's system of citizen-sponsored ballot initiatives, dating back to 1911, was one of those progressive schemes that managed to produce the opposite outcome from the one intended: In hopes of returning power to the people and making state government more responsive and efficient, the initiative system has managed to empower wealthy special interests, baffle the average...

    In the closing days of the election, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred has trotted out an eleventh woman making claims of “sexual assault” against Donald Trump. Cable news mavens have been assuring us repeatedly that the Clinton campaign (which Allred vocally supports) had absolutely nothing to do with this, but the details of this latest allegation are making this newest accuser look a bit like the toad at the garden party. The alleged victim of Trump’s predatory behavior in this case is Jessica Drake, who was previously best known for her work in the, er… adult entertainment industry. (WARNING: The filmography...

    Pamela Anderson is taking a stance. The former Playboy model, 49, teamed up with Rabbi Schmuley Boteach to pen an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal to warn about the “addictive dangers of pornography” on Wednesday, August 31. In it, the two argue that porn has a “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as a husband, and by extension, as father.” “This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays,” the pair continued. “How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode?...

Mike Webb initially ran as a Republican for the 8th District seat, which covers Arlington and Alexandria and is considered safely Democratic. He lost the nomination, though, and is now running as an independent, though he is, to say the least, unlikely to win. Webb published a post on his campaign page Monday that included a screenshot of his computer desktop. And as it happened, Webb hadn’t bothered to close his pornography tabs when he took his screengrab.......

    The government’s cyber spying outfit has an ‘unbelievable’ child porn problem. But the NSA can’t—or won’t—say how often it finds such criminal images on its workers’ computers. Two senior U.S. intelligence officials said recently that defense and intelligence employees have an “unbelievable” amount of child pornography on their work computers and devices, and that child porn has been found on the systems of the National Security Agency, the country’s biggest intelligence organization. But the NSA, which is responsible for keeping tabs on its own computers as well as military and intelligence agency networks, cannot say just how many times employees...

North Carolinians seeking to indulge now get a black screen, which the company plans to replace with a petition demanding the repeal of HB2, the bill that requires segregated public facilities, such as bathrooms and locker rooms, to divide according to biological sex not gender identity.

I can’t link to it because it’s a subscribers-only piece, but Southern Baptist pastor Denny Burk has a detailed (but not NSFW) rundown of what it reports.

Burk, quoting the article: A growing number of young men are convinced that their sexual responses have been sabotaged because their brains were virtually marinated in...

The Facebook-owned startup announced Monday that its new “Rift” headset has more than 30 games available as the first units ship this week, with 100 titles expected by the end of 2016. Meanwhile, insiders say Facebook execs appear to be relying on another kind of content to drive demand for the Rift — namely, VR porn flicks.

    A professionally shot video of Barack Obama from 1995 has recently surfaced. Shot at the Cambridge, Mass. Public Library, the video captures a skinny, youthful Obama promoting his then newly released memoir, Dreams from My Father. In this hour-long presentation, Obama openly talks about his relationship with his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist and pornographer. Perhaps more importantly, Obama gives us a much clearer picture of who he was in 1995, on the cusp of his political career, than we had seen before. Some observations: The Obama of 1995 was not a very good speaker. He had a halting...

    Well-known for his porn star companions, Charlie Sheen’s recent admission to being HIV-positive has sent a ripple of fear through the adult industry. There’s no protocol in place for this. There are no records of who Sheen’s hired, thus no quarantine list for the porn stars he’s been sexually active with. In the semi-regulated world of adult film, when an HIV scare is made known everyone asks, “Did I perform with the person who tested positive?” Fear turns to panic if it was a close call, relief if it wasn’t. That’s only after a name is released—or patient zero comes...

    Times have changed at Playboy. Starting next year, the publication long known for showcasing the female physique, will no longer feature models in the nude, according to a report in The New York Times.

The Times' Ravi Somaiya writes that now that Playboy has effectively accomplished its founding goal of "normalizing" the female body by introducing women to the world in their au naturel state, the magazine's mission has been accomplished. _______________ Playboy CEO Scott Flanders...

    Porn addictions are like non-celiac gluten sensitivities: lots of people claim to have them but they may not be real. Porn addiction is not currently a diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Disorders, as The Daily Beast has reported multiple times. But that hasn’t stopped therapists and rehab centers from using the concept with clients like Josh Duggar who have claimed to suffer from it. And if people genuinely feel addicted to porn, what’s the harm in humoring them? As it turns out, there could be actual psychological harm associated with buying into the concept of porn addiction.

    In 2012, AIDS activists in Los Angeles helped pass a law requiring condom use on all porn sets within county lines. In 2014, a federal court upheld the law, finding that the First Amendment doesn't excuse employers from basic health and safety regulations. Now the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has turned to the rest of California, trying to get the mandatory condom requirements on a statewide ballot. "Organizers said they collected 557,138 signatures from registered voters, more than the 365,880 they needed by Monday for the initiative to be on the ballot in November 2016," Reuters reports.

    MILWAUKEE (CN) - Dollar General fired a man convicted of possessing graphic child pornography, only to have Wisconsin officials upbraid it for discrimination, the store claims in court. The Vonnegutian tale appears in a petition filed Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court by Dolgen, the parent company of a Dollar General on South 27th Street that hired Michael Ionetz as its manager in May 2010. One month on the job, Ionetz was charged with 22 counts of child pornography, Dolgen says. The company's complaint gives a sickening account of the data that the state claimed to have found on Ionetz's...

    Although it’s the least discussed media topic, porn is systematically infiltrating and killing America (and statistically your family too!). Few realize just how large a role porn or other forms of sex addiction plays in the breakdown of families. In this digital age, porn isn’t just instantly accessible, it’s the silent killer of families. Porn addiction leaves countless men and women desperate and unaware of where to turn for help. This silent enemy leaves families broken in a wake of despair and destruction after the fall of fathers and husbands. The results are a lineage of addiction and infidelity passed...

    Actress Rashida Jones is best known for her work in “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation.” But her latest project, a documentary called “Hot Girls Wanted,” explores the amateur porn industry, which she says rakes in gobs of cash by exploiting the gullibility of young women who thirst for fame and fortune. “So much stands in the way of them and that dream,” she tells Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric. “And the things that stand in the way are not being fully explained to them. “Their naiveté is really important as an engine for the porn industry, or at...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is coming under scrutiny from social conservatives for investing taxpayer money in a company with ties to pornography. The former Florida governor invested $1.3 million from the state’s pension fund into Movie Gallery, a film rental company that offers X-rated films in addition to comedies and action movies, according to a report in the International Business Times. The report examined thousands of emails from during his tenure that show a strained relationship between Bush and the “religious right."

    Conservatives in Florida were aghast: State documents said that Gov. Jeb Bush and other overseers of Florida's pension system had shifted retirees' money into a company called Movie Gallery, one of the largest film rental firms in America. Most of the titles were standard comedy and action fare, but a fraction were X-rated titles. In short, the state of Florida was investing taxpayer money in pornography. Bush recently released 280,000 emails from his two terms as governor (1999-2007), and buried in the trove are exchanges about the Movie Gallery investment that highlight the tension between Bush’s stance as a firm...
