Award-winning director Jezza Neumann and producer Lauren Mucciolo (“Poor Kids”) embed with the Phoenix police unit that’s tackling child sexual exploitation, offering an inside look at the lucrative industry through unique access to a series of undercover, high-stakes police operations. They also film with young women who have escaped the trade. Using fake online ads as decoys, the Phoenix police unit targets both the traffickers luring young women into prostitution, and the “buyers” – many of whom claim to not know that the girls they interact with are victims of trafficking. With extensive and intimate access to local law enforcement, prosecutors, service providers and the women themselves, the film shines a light on the hidden reality of sex trafficking in America.

‘#Transgender #medicine’ is ‘complex’

At a confirmation hearing last Thursday, WND reported, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., confronted Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary of Health and Human Services on the government’s support for “sex-change” treatment and surgery. The exchange was particularly significant because the nominee is Dr. Rachel Levine, who would become the first transgender U.S. official if confirmed.

Paul wanted to know whether or not the government should overrule the authority of parents and support children undergoing hormone treatment and “surgical destruction” of their genitalia.

“Dr. Levine, do you believe that minors are capable of making such a life-changing decision as changing one’s sex?” Paul asked.

Levine dodged the question, replying, “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research.”

The Equality Act would prevent anyone from using the freedom of conscience protections under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 as a defense in claims of discrimination based on “the sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition of an individual, as well as because of sex-based stereotypes.”

“Discrimination on the basis of pregnancy,” the bill says, could be grounds for suing health-care providers who refuse to perform an abortion.

Miley Cyrus is not afraid to cause a little controversy – and on Tuesday night, she posted a rather daring Instagram snap.

The singer, 28, shared a couple of pictures of herself wearing nothing but a Motley Crue tank top, revealing some sideboob in the process.

And advocating a little self-love, placing her hand between her legs, she wrote: ‘Play board games. Not mind games and play with your parts. Self sex is safe sex.’

She concluded with a bone emoji.

Miley’s shirt was tucked between her legs in the daring snaps as she preserved her modesty.

Meanwhile, the superstar recently introduced her 124 million fans and followers on Instagram to her adorable new adopted dog.

Earlier in the day, she had continued to post content with the gray and white pooch, whose name is Angel, to her Stories.

The Plastic Hearts hitmaker sat in the driver’s seat of her car in the image, wearing a white sleeveless graphic T-shirt.

She had her mouth open, with what looked to be chewing gum on her tongue.Behind her, Angel looked at the camera as well, panting with his tongue out.

Miley wore a black trucker hat and had several necklaces layered around her neck.

She added an electric guitar icon along with a BFF heartbreak necklace to the IG story entry.

She captioned the picture cheekily, ‘2 pitties who love t*tties’ and added a skull and crossbones emoji.

The Hannah Montana star adopted Angel after the death of her beloved dog Mary Jane in January.

As she introduced Angel to her social media followers, she wrote: ‘Almost two months ago my best friend a rescued pit mix Mary Jane left this world. I knew she wasn’t gone for good.

‘She had out lived the body she was in but she never said goodbye ….. with her eyes she whispered “See you soon Bestie”. Mary Jane defined loyalty and would never break a promise.’

The We Can’t Stop songstress added: ‘I feel her here with me blessing this new member to my family who’s name is “Angel” because she was delivered to me by one… My Mary.

‘It breaks my heart to know Angel was sleeping on concrete in a shelter for 3 months before finally making it home.’

Beyonce has continued to bring the heat to Instagram in another marketing push for her new Ivy Park X Adidas collection, despite it being nearly sold out.

On Wednesday, the 39-year-old hitmaker shared new images with Hailey Bieber as they showed off their phenomenal figures in new Ivy Park athleisure.

Wearing a baby blue onesie and a geometric patterned sports bra set, the two ladies gassed up the sex appeal in some unseen promo images.

The versatile collection features sporty workout attire and some clubworthy latex pieces in addition to footwear.

Since its select global release over the weekend, the inventory has been flying off the shelves, ‘Queen B’ proving to be her own best saleswoman.

She continued to showcase her famous curves in a the blue romper and her sneaker style boots, as she modeled the pieces atop a furry white chair.

Enlisting a final push from campaign veteran Hailey, the wife of Justin Bieber posed in a fuschia monogram workout set, layering the look with a puffer jacket.

People were quick to comment that they were dying for pieces to be restocked, with others playfully jabbing that they wanted their orders to arrive immediately.

Additionally Beyonce has used her daughter Blue Ivy and rapper Gucci Mane as models for the collection, showing its gender and age versatility.

Speaking about the collection to Elle last year, she elaborated on making the switch to designing gender neutral clothing with her latest collection.

People inherently avoid risk, Kelly-Jones said. And the COVID-19 pandemic has fostered new conversations about sex safety and taking precautions.

Kelly-Jones likened this example to STD risk. Not everyone seeks an STD test before having sex with a new partner, but right now, many are having open discussions about COVID-19 exposure, testing and the risks of sex.

Discussions about masturbation have also shifted during the pandemic. Some states, including Oregon and New York, issued public advisories stating that the safest sex is sex with yourself, using the term “masturbation” in an official document.

“Finally, we are going to have discussions about stuff people are doing anyway, and now we can talk about it publicly,” Kelly-Jones said.

“Now we are actually openly discussing masturbation,” Kelly-Jones said. “That’s an OK thing for you to do because it’s going to protect you from getting the coronavirus. Who’d ever thought that that would be the topic?”

Right now, the safest sex is the with yourself, Kelly-Jones said.

Masturbation brings a low level of infection but can also yield sexual pleasure and intimacy that many seek during social-distancing.

Other options for how to have sex with someone outside of your household is to wear masks, a suggestion issued by a commentary from Harvard researchers in May.

However, there have been preliminary studies to determine if COVID-19 can be transmitted sexually. Kelly-Jones said there is more work to be done on that hypothesis, and that COVID-19 has been found in the sperm of people who have the coronavirus.

The International Society for the Study of Women’s Health, which Kelly-Jones is a member of, issued a position statement in May on COVID-19 and sex. ISSWSH stated that kissing and other forms of sexual contact can transmit the virus. “ISSWSH supports social distancing for all casual acquaintances, for discordant couples, or when either member of a couple is possibly infected,” the organization stated. “The new “really safe” sex in many cases may require “e-sex,” (i.e. Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, etc.).”

Kelly-Jones emphasized that the decision to date and become intimate during this time is an individual one.

“A lot of it is just on your comfort level — what are you comfortable with?” Kelly-Jones asked.

“Everybody has to kind of take into account the risk versus the benefit of everything that they do, including exposure to the virus,” she said.

Dating — and sex — in the time of COVID-19

A first date might go something like this: you meet up around 7 p.m., enjoy dinner at a crowded restaurant (the newest hot spot, if you can get a reservation), then catch a late movie at a packed theater, hold hands walking back to the car, and if it goes really well, a kiss good night.

Pre-COVID-19, that is.

But during the coronavirus pandemic, dating means the addition of masks and six feet of distance. Movie theaters are closed and restaurants have limited capacity.

So, how have people found love in the time of the coronavirus?

CharlotteFive talked with Dr. Alyse Kelly-Jones, a gynecologist with Novant Health in Charlotte, about the importance of making time for romance — safely — especially during a pandemic.

Kelly-Jones leads community events called Sex and Sensibility, using frank language to talk about sex without judgment. These talks are being held virtually each month through Novant Health.

As people have come to her, asking about the possibility of dating during COVID-19, her advice has changed in the past few months, she said. With asymptomatic carriers and the nature of testing as only capturing a moment in time — there are many factors to consider when meeting new people.

“It’s really difficult to date during this time. You have to do social distancing, you have to wear masks,” she said.

Kelly-Jones’ experience is in removing sexual shame and promoting sexual health. At TEDx Charlotte in 2017, Kelly Jones gave a presentation entitled “Shed Sexual Shame (and Your Clothes Along the Way)”.

You May Live Longer

One study suggested that married women who climaxed more often had a slight tendency to live longer. Researchers aren’t sure if the sex actually lengthens your life or if having sex is a sign of a healthier person. But why take any chances?

Lowers Stress

People who have more sex are less anxious when they’re faced with stressful tasks like public speaking or arithmetic. But according to the study, it only works when you have a partner — masturbation doesn’t count.

May Cure Your Headache

Say goodbye to the old standby “Not tonight, Dear. I have a headache.” It turns out sex can help with pain, and that includes some kinds of headaches, such as migraines. Not feeling frisky? Try: “Not tonight, Honey. I have a highly contagious stomach bug.” Works every time.
