    The woman sipped from a can of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, feeling carefree as she walked along Leavenworth Street in San Francisco’s Tenderloin. She thought she’d been invited out to celebrate her birthday. Instead, she said, her former pimp crept up from behind and dropped her with a roundhouse punch. Two men heaved her into a car trunk and they were off, forcing the woman to claw for her life in the dark as the vehicle careened along crowded city streets. Her life as a sex worker was dangerous, but now it had turned potentially deadly. Soon police were in pursuit...

    According to the head of one of France’s most prominent asylum seeker support organisations, the global network of human traffickers which aid migrants across borders into Europe and elsewhere constitute a $32 billion (£25bn) industry. “it is absolutely necessary to crack these various networks that thrive on the misery and credulity of a certain number of people and it is to be hoped that the victims will be protected,” Pierre Henry, director general of the asylum seeker support association Terre d’Asile, said. “Exploitation today includes, in addition to sexual exploitation, labour, forced services, slavery, servitude and even organ harvesting.

    Stormy Daniels has been adamant that money is not what motivated her to tell her story. That may be so, but she certainly finds herself able to make a lot more of it these days. Since allegations of a 2006 affair with Donald Trump and a $130,000 hush payment made by Trump’s lawyer surfaced in January, Daniels has become a household name—with the earning power to prove it. “Stormy’s essentially become the most famous porn star of all time,” says Alec Helmy, publisher of adult industry news outlet XBIZ. “And with that level of fame comes a windfall of opportunity.”...

    Tourist hotspot Amsterdam turns into a "lawless jungle" after dark with the police powerless to intervene against crime and violence, the city's ombudsman warned in an interview Saturday. "The city centre becomes an urban jungle at night," Amsterdam's official ombudsman Arre Zuurmond told Dutch daily Trouw, warning of illegal car and bike races zooming through the streets, open drugs sales and general mayhem. "Criminal money flourishes, there is no authority and the police can no longer handle the situation," he warned. Some 18 million tourists flock to Amsterdam every year -- more than the entire population of the Netherlands. ETC...

    Former President Bill Clinton was interrupted by protesters demanding the decriminalization of sex workers worldwide on Friday, while he was giving the closing speech at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam. Clinton had just begun addressing the crowd when the protestors began chatting and blowing whistles. “President Clinton, we demand for decriminalization of sex work worldwide and in the United States,” one protester shouted at Clinton. Another protestor shouted at Clinton, “we know you support sex workers, please help us!” Clinton remained silent on stage while the protestors shouted their demands at him. Once they concluded, he commended the conference...

    Scarlett Johansson, who endured cries of whitewashing when she played the lead in last year’s Ghost in the Shell, this time has given in to public pressure. The actress today exited Rub & Tug, the Rupert Sanders-directed film in which she was to play the trans owner of a massage parlor. Johansson’s role in the project was met with immediate backlash from the transgender community and others who objected to her casting. Following the initial uproar, the actress responded with a statement to Bustle.com which read, “Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity...

    She got off. Ohio prosecutors on Thursday threw out charges against porn star Stormy Daniels, a day after she was arrested for allegedly rubbing undercover cops’ faces into her breasts while performing at a strip club. They say Daniels is not subject to a state law that prohibits anyone who isn’t a family member from touching a nude dancer, because it only applies to someone who “regularly” appears at a jiggle joint — and she was a guest, according to court papers tweeted out by her lawyer Michael Avenatti. Columbus Police said in a statement Thursday that the 39-year-old “Good...

    We all need more freedom to openly discuss—and engage in—sex. Instead, we all too often pounce on provocative opinions and hem in what is deemed "acceptable" bounds of debate. This is a shame.Consider the rhetorical maelstrom created when George Mason University economist Robin Hanson recently suggested that the Toronto attack— in which a self-described incel (an involuntary celibate) mowed down 10 pedestrians — shows that we should worry not just about income inequality, but also the sexual inequality that is leaving too many men sexually frustrated. Hanson, whose blog Overcoming Bias is dedicated to raising uncomfortable questions that cut against...

    Isaiah McCoy walked out of a Delaware prison a free man in January 2017, five years after being convicted of murder and sentenced to death. A judge found him not guilty at a retrial, and McCoy soon began enjoying the limelight that came with his exoneration. He reveled in speaking engagements before lawyers associations and anti-death penalty groups. “People were loving my story,” McCoy said. But in less than a year, he went from death row in Delaware to giving speeches about wrongful convictions to back behind bars. Now, he’s in a detention center in Hawaii, where he is charged...

    Daily resort fees and parking charges are rising and spreading in Las Vegas, adding as much as $45 a day to visitors' hotel bills. The publisher of Las Vegas Advisor blames the extra charges for a recent decline in the number of visitors. "Everyone hates resort fees, but the parking [fee] is even worse," said Anthony Curtis of Las Vegas Advisor. "Everyone wants some kind of comp, [and] the most basic comp is free parking. That was the one comp that everyone got." The Advisor, a decades-old, monthly newsletter highlighting what's new in Vegas and featuring deals for visitors, provides...
