Teen leading in Kansas race admits blackmail, revenge porn

TOPEKA, Kan. — Democrats are scrambling to deal with the strong possibility that a 19-year-old candidate for a Kansas House seat in Kansas City will unseat a veteran lawmaker despite making incendiary comments on social media and acknowledging abusive behavior online toward girls in middle school.

Aaron Coleman, a dishwasher and community college student, holds a five-vote lead over seven-term state Rep. Stan Frownfelter, a 69-year-old small business owner. Officials in their home of Wyandotte County are scheduled to meet Monday to review provisional ballots and decide whether to count them, potentially altering Coleman’s 807-802 lead in voting.

Coleman is running a liberal platform that includes universal health coverage, eliminating college tuition, defunding the police and legalizing marijuana. But he received more attention for a social media post suggesting he would “laugh and giggle” if a former GOP state lawmaker died of COVID-19, another post endorsing abortion up to the

“Revenge Porn” Isn’t Real

From Cosmopolitan

I can’t have a discussion of sexual assault and the battle for our safety without talking about the latest war zone: the internet.

My abusive relationship crept out of my home and into the public eye via cyber exploitation—a violation experienced by many thousands of American women each year. The phrase we most use to describe this type of abuse, revenge porn, encapsulates our terrible inability to understand it for what it is. Cyber exploitation is not porn; it’s not consensual or produced for public entertainment. It’s not revenge either, since that implies that it’s been disseminated for some righteous reason—because the victim has actually done something deserving retribution. Revenge porn sounds like something we should leer at, and the phrase itself is not okay.

Millions of people witnessed what happened to me—nude photos were released by conservative media outlets, facilitated by my

The disturbing underbelly of the ‘step’ porn trend

The disturbing underbelly of the ‘step’ porn trend

August 8 is International Female Orgasm Day, and we’re celebrating with an entire week dedicated to exploring the business and pleasure of porn.

Pop onto Pornhub’s homepage and you’re likely see at least one title akin to Gorgeous Step Daughter Sneaks In and Seduces with Creampie.

Or My stepson pays me a visit.

Or Beautiful Step Sister Loves Porn & Wants to Fuck.

These are all real titles I can see on Pornhub’s main page as I write this. If I refreshed, I’d be inundated with new regurgitations of the same idea.

If you’ve visited any of the many tube porn sites in the past several years, you’ve likely noticed there are more and more titles like this — even if the video itself is fake incest (“fauxcest”).

This isn’t just in our imaginations, either. In a look at

Anti-Catholic Porn Producer Scammed Harvard Professor with Gospel of Jesus’ Wife

In September 2012, late in the evening of the penultimate day of the 10th International Congress on Coptic Studies, academic luminary and Harvard professor Karen King announced the discovery of a previously unknown early Christian text that she called the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife (GJW). King’s discovery made headlines around the world because one line of the fragment read “Jesus said to them, ‘my wife…’” and then broke off. Was Jesus referring to his wife?

Though King herself never claimed that Jesus was married, the possibility that he was fed into Da Vinci Code hype about a married Messiah. Some were skeptical early on about its authenticity, but even as scientific testing and academic analysis pulled the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife to pieces a new story emerged: one in which an amateur pornographer-turned-forger deceived an Ivy league professor and, briefly, the

‘Why do we need to offer people gratuitous sex in film? There’s plenty of porn online’

Timothy Dalton has a laugh like a pantomime villain. Rich, deep and playfully thespy, it booms from our Zoom chat as his press team asks me to pivot my camera away from a nice blank wall towards a pile of unwashed laundry, to improve the lighting. The laughter erupts again when he spots my broken hoover.

I’m rewarded with a third, expansive peal when I tell the 74-year-old actor that my 10-year-old son – eavesdropping from the hall earlier as I watched the delectably surreal but 18-rated series Doom Patrol – said of Dalton’s performance as Niles “Chief” Caulder: “His voice is a massive spoiler! I mean, the posh English guy in an American action thing? You just know he’s going to turn out to be a baddie! Even if he’s a good guy for now.”

“Good for your son!” Dalton chuckles. “After I shot my very first scene

  • HottyTEEN69 has been a host on ImLive, a site where people can pay to watch cam girls, for nearly 18 years. 

  • She joined to help pay for her university fees in Romania back when the company was founded in 2002. 

  • Though camming sites like OnlyFans and IsMyGirl have caught the popular imaginary now, the early aughts were like the ‘wild west’ for adult entertainment sites. 

  • Visit Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Camming — live-streaming sex shows, typically from a bedroom — has grown into one of the most lucrative parts of the adult entertainment industry, earning models upwards of $100,000 a year.

In fact, the pandemic has fueled the multi-billion dollar camming industry, as lockdowns created an audience (people who couldn’t go out), and new models (people who lost jobs and sought ways to make money from home).

But long before the pandemic, and long before

A tool that unmasks child porn offenders led to thousands of arrests. Now it’s expanding.

BOCA RATON, Fla. — In December 2016, law enforcement agents seized computers and hard drives from the home of Tay Christopher Cooper, a retired high school history teacher, in Carlsbad, California. On the devices, digital forensic experts found more than 11,600 photos and videos depicting child sexual abuse, according to court documents.

Among the videos was one showing a man raping a toddler girl, according to a criminal complaint.

“The audio associated with this video is that of a baby crying,” the complaint states.

Police were led to Cooper’s door by a forensic tool called Child Protection System, which scans file-sharing networks and chatrooms to find computers that are downloading photos and videos depicting the sexual abuse of prepubescent children. The software, developed by the Child Rescue Coalition, a Florida-based nonprofit, can help establish the probable cause needed to get a search warrant.

Cooper had used one of the file-sharing

The Porn World Exposes Mia Khalifa

After a three-month stint in porn, Mia Khalifa called it quits. Given her limited experience in porn, with only a dozen scenes to her credit, disappearing back into civilian life was a reasonable expectation—or would have been, if the Lebanese-born star hadn’t become a global sensation at 21 years old for wearing a hijab in a XXX scene. Singled out by Islamic extremists, Khalifa received death threats and could no longer travel to certain countries safely but shrewdly used that same notoriety catapult herself into the top-tier of porn, achieving a level of status and recognition most women spend years of hard work and hundreds of scenes to get to.

According to Khalifa, the notoriety limited her traditional workplace options, ultimately forcing her back into becoming Mia Khalifa.

“A lot of people in the industry are vehemently angry with her for making all this money off the
