In news so horribly upsetting I keep hoping it’s a joke, “Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas were hugging and kissing in public when a cop decided they must be up to no good. It quickly became obvious that race was a factor when they were treated like criminals after having done nothing wrong. More
If you think your custody battle was tough then I will kindly direct you to the story of Tanaha Koontz. The mother of three and former prostitute based in St. Petersburg, Florida says that she found herself without virtually any rights to her babies after her husband yelled “whore!” in court proceedings. But Tanaha alleges that it was her abusive husband who was sex trafficking her to begin with, pimping her out after losing his job. Unable to recover her children so far, Tanaha is now raising funds to tell her story — and that of many other women like her. A documentary that she hopes to entitle “Whoremom.” More
A fourteen-year-old boy from Illinois got the biggest let down of his young life when he hired a prostitute online this week only to be pepper-sprayed and robbed. I just can’t even think about this without breaking out in hives. I am not prepared to parent a teenager. More
The aspiring pimps have been charged with friending girls online (aged between 13 and 17) and luring them to one of their homes to meet with “clients.” Sometimes under the guise of sleepovers. More

It’s not always companies and media campaigns that are trying to sexually exploit children. Parents are unfortunately guilty of the practice as well –especially when it comes to daughters.
A 33-year-old mom out of Salt Lake City Utah has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after asking her teenage daughter to pose for a man in a bra and thong. More
The worst thing about TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras” is that there is a market for it. We live in a world that doesn’t just give parents an opportunity to exploit toddlers through so-called beauty pageants but also a world where such exploitation makes for a hit reality television show. That’s sad.
But the Parents Television Council has sounded the alarm about the latest horror to come from the show. A mother dressed her daughter up as a prostitute and had her compete. This is in no way an exaggeration. In fact, it’s not just a prostitute but an iconic prostitute in a “hooker” uniform. More
The recession hasn’t fully recovered and the average college student is accruing more and more debt. With few jobs available for their parents, let alone themselves, young adults are looking out onto the horizon of adulthood with some very high bills to pay and with very little resources. The rising cost of education and little means to pay for it is causing some collegiate-bound girls and boys to go in search of “sugar daddies” — older wealthy men who are willing to pay tuition bills in exchange for their companionship and sex.

Most of Bangkok is pretty typical for an Asian city but one of the things you can’t help but notice are the ladyboys. These are the men who dress as women, have undergone various procedures to feminize (including surgery up top and down below and hormone replacement therapy), and wear makeup. Many of them are gorgeous and look to be more female than me.
