A new film, Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?, depicts women withholding sex until men agree to get rid of their guns.

Is That a Gun was written, directed and produced by Matt Cooper, and it stars Andrea Anders (Modern Family), Matt Passmore (The Glades), Cloris Leachman (The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Horatio Sanz (Wreck-It Ralph), John Michael Higgins (Couples Retreat), and Jon Heard (NCIS Los Angeles), among others.

The film’s trailer announces: “Finally a comedy that takes aim at America’s greatest obsessions.” It includes scenes of women in the fictional town of Rockford, Texas, banding together to deny their men sex until their men get rid of their guns.

“One person’s act of fear and maliciousness created such a powerful statement of love.”

A Massachusetts-based lesbian couple received an amazing display of solidarity from their neighbors this week after vandals stole a Pride flag from the front of their home and egged their front porch while they were out of town.

Lauri and Cari Ryding initially hung the Pride flag following the Pulse nightclub massacre, the worst mass shooting in American history. The incident at their home served as a reminder why they hung the flag in the first place.

IT SEEMS like everyone is ticking off a bucket list these days, with YouTube sensations, adrenaline junkies and even the elderly jumping out of perfectly good planes with this as their reason.

So it was only a matter of time before this notion crept into our bedrooms.

I think a sex bucket list is a great tool to find sexual satisfaction and explore what really excites you — for singles and couples alike. Your lists might look different, but why should singles have all the fun?

For all their bare skin, suggestive dialogue and racy dance sequences, Bollywood movies generally are a marvel of chastity. The world’s biggest film industry is so squeamish about sex that its biggest stars rarely even kiss on screen.

Then there’s Sunny Leone.

Anyone with an Internet connection can watch Leone do a lot more than kiss, and many Indians have. She consistently ranks as the most Googled person in the country, less for her roles in a dozen-odd Bollywood B-movies than for her previous career as one of the biggest porn stars in America.

When I was 14 my parents divorced. My mom freaked out and sent me to live with my dad. He had a new GF, Tess; I am thinking she had something to do with the breakup.

My first thought was that Tess was way out of his league. She was in her 20s, blonde, and a real looker. While he was around she was great but when he had to go out of town I found out she turned into a drunken slob. With dad gone and her useless I had to look after myself but I did get a lot of freedom that way. Tess told me that as long as I didn’t rat her out to my dad she wouldn’t tell him about any minor trouble I got into.

The story really starts when I invited my friend Mike over one afternoon to watch TV and hang out. When we came in I was totally embarrassed to find Tess passed out on the couch in front of the TV. I should have expected it. Dad had left the day before and it never took her long to get tanked.

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky has asked to be assigned to civil cases after becoming the target of protests and a recall campaign.

The judge who sentenced former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman will no longer preside over criminal cases.

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky became the subject of protests and a recall campaign after sentencing Turner in June. Sentencing guidelines suggested a minimum of two years and up to 14 years in prison; Turner was sentenced to six months in jail and is expected to serve half that time.

The victim read a powerful letter on the assault’s impact on her life in court, which was later published by BuzzFeed News. Persky said he arrived at what was criticized as an overly lenient sentence because Turner showed “genuine remorse.”

The “good guy with a gun” argument is a rationale that’s been used time and time again to stop gun control efforts. But a 2012 Washington Post study using information from the FBI and CDC found that argument to be a complete myth. For every “justifiable” gun homicide in 2012, there were 34 criminal gun homicides, 78 gun suicides, and at least two accidental gun deaths. A similar study two years later found that owning a gun makes you much more likely to be shot. Facts be damned, on August 5th, a new law went into effect in Texas that allows concealed handgun license holders to carry concealed handguns on college campuses. And this new law has a lot of University of Texas students afraid to go to class.

IT’S pretty sad to think there’s still a grey area for some men in the world that cannot comprehend the difference between consent and rape.

This was brought into focus this year in June when former Stanford University student Brock Turner was found guilty of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman.

To clear up the continued confusion, a frustrated Twitter user has taken it upon herself to explain exactly what consent means — using a great analogy about stealing $5 from a woman’s purse.

To kick off her explanation of why “no means no”, Nafisa Ahmed firstly questioned why there was still confusion around the issue of consent.

Thousands and thousands of photographers have been shooting the Olympics for two weeks straight, and the pictures they’ve unleashed upon the world have been amazing. We’ve been treated to images of unbelievable triumph. We’ve seen heartbreaking loss captured in time. We’ve witnessed majestic physiques, effortless movement, skillful coordination — and strange bungled moments that look less like professional athleticism and more like low-budget amateur porn.

Two guesses as to which of those this column will be about.

Parcels containing sex toys left at a work desk, a senior boss telling an employee he wanted to “ravish” her, and a young woman groped by an older colleague who told her she “loved it”.

These are some of the experiences female readers have been sharing with the BBC after a survey suggested more than half of women say they’ve been sexually harassed at work.

Many of those who told their stories also said they felt unable to report what had happened to them because they felt embarrassed or feared they would lose their job.

Below are edited excerpts of more than 100 stories we received. Some names have been changed to protect identity.

Abby Normal just wanted to find a good party where she could get naked without getting kicked out. For a long time, she thought that meant moving from Vancouver to Montreal.

“I kind of had this dream of moving there,” she told VICE. While doing some camgirl work for a Montreal-based site, Abby was smitten with the city’s tight-knit sex worker community and the weirdo art scene that came with it. “I was looking over the fence at this beautiful, wonderful thing, that I hoped and wished I could be a part of, but felt like I could never be a part of.”
