Davis’ filibuster can be watched in the live stream above. Supporters are also asked to send their personal testimonies for Davis to read on the floor.

Supreme Court Ends Anti-Sex Work Restriction On AIDS Funding

0

by thepleasurechest

While many of us anticipated a historic ruling on marriage equality yesterday, the Supreme Court weighed in another issue, vital to the concerns of sex workers and global health advocates.

The Supreme Court, in its 6-2 decision, said the federal government cannot require HIV outreach groups to sign an anti-prostitution pledge in order to get government funding. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the Court, stated that such a requirement violated the First Amendment. “The policy requirement goes beyond preventing recipients from using private funds in a way that would undermine the federal program,” he wrote. “It requires them to pledge allegiance to the government’s policy of eradicating prostitution.”

For the past 10 years, the controversial policy has complicated efforts to provide HIV/AIDS services to sex workers around the world.  The ruling is seen as a huge win for sex workers and health advocates.

Can we expect more good news from the court next week?

UPDATE: Congratulations to Travelnurse who was randomly chosen to win the Form 2. We hope it comes in handy and we think you’ll appreciate the travel lock feature!

We’d also like to congratulate Amanda S. who plans to amass an army of Form 2s and use a thunderstorm to animate them in a plot for world domination. While we don’t endorse this kind of villainy, we enjoyed her answer, so we’re sending Amanda her first foot soldier. Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter and share their plans with us! 

This is the Jimmyjane Form 2. Beautiful, isn’t it? It’s also waterproof, rechargeable and ridiculously strong.

The Form 2 is a staff favorite. Mary called it “the best little vibrator I’ve ever had.” With 8 reviews so far, this little toy has an average customer rating of 5 stars. A perfect score.

You know you want one. And here’s your chance, because we’re giving away TWO of these this coming Friday.

How to Win a Form 2

Simply post a comment below telling us about your summer plans. On Friday, June 21st, we’ll pick one reader at random to win a Form 2. We’ll award the other Form 2 to the reader who submits our favorite answer.

It’s that simple. Good luck!

HPV Vaccine Cuts Infection Rate In Half

0

hpv

There’s great news in the fight against HPV. The vaccine is working! The New York Times reports:

Infection with the viral strains that cause cancer dropped to 3.6 percent among girls ages 14 to 19 in 2010, from 7.2 percent in 2006, a new study has found.

Yes, the rates of HPV infection were cut in half in just 4 years. As Jezebel points out, this is even more remarkable when one considers that vaccination rates are still pretty low, with only about a third of teenage girls completing the series of doses. As more young men and women get the vaccine, public health officials expect rates of infection– and the cancers associated with HPV– to decline even further.

Hide: Art on Leather by Karl Hamilton-CoxFriday in Chicago

0

by thepleasurechest

hide

HIDE is an exhibition from Karl Hamilton-Cox of Art On Leather. The exhibit features erotic works painted on leather canvas.

Of his first showing outside of the UK, the artist says “My work is unashamedly illustrative in nature as I prefer a realism style that I feel is more of a technical challenge than contemporary representative or abstract genres.” He developed his painting on leather technique after he was asked to do a bomber jacket sample in early 2011. With some lateral thinking he has successfully adapted the concept to the UK fetish and alternative lifestyle markets.

Chicago readers are invited to join us at the opening of HIDE this Friday night from 9 to 11 PM at the G.A.G. Contemporary Fetish Gallery located at the Leather Archives and Museum. You can even RSVP on Fetlife.
