Sex robots with 'resistance setting' let men simulate rape

By Chris Baynes


A sex robot with a "resistance setting" that allows men to simulate rape should be banned, a lawyer has said.

Kate Parker, who runs a charity which teaches school pupils about consent, warned the "uniquely sinister" technology normalised sexual assault.

Robotics company True Companion sells a $9,995 (£7,408) sex doll with programmable personalities including "Frigid Farrah".

The American manufacturer has advertised the character as "reserved and shy" and told customers "if touched in a private area, more than likely she will not be too appreciative of your advance".

The company said the "Roxxxy Gold" robot offered men the chance to "realise their most private sexual dreams", a promise some critics saw as "encouraging rapists to find a supposedly safe outlet" for their crimes.

True Companion insisted the technology was "simply not programmed to participate in a rape scenario".

But Ms Parker, founder of the Schools Consent Project, a British charity which sends lawyers into classrooms to speak to pupils about sexual offences, said: "In simulating resistance, [the robot] enables users to simulate rape."

She added: "The robots normalise sexual violence.

"They service and provide a distraction for criminal impulses that should probably be subject to psychiatric intervention."

True Companion lets customers pick one of 73 hair colours in 39 styles as well as customise the eyes, eyebrows, nails, skin tone and pubic hair of their robot.

The Roxxxy Gold features programmable personalities including "Wild Wendy", "S&M Susan", and a "Young Yoko" persona advertised as "barely 18".

But it is the "Frigid Farah" setting that has caused most controversy.

"Rape is not an act of sexual passion. It is a violent crime," wrote Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, in July. "We should no more be encouraging rapists to find a supposedly safe outlet for it than we should facilitate murderers by giving them realistic, blood-spurting dummies to stab."

A report by the Foundation for Responsible Robotics this year year found "major disagreement" among academics, the public, and the sex industry about the ethics of such technology.

"Some say it's better to rape a robot than a person, but others think it would encourage rape," said Professor Noel Sharkey, the foundation's co-director.

Ms Parker said the technology promoted "criminal sexual behaviour" and "should be outlawed accordingly".

She pointed to laws which criminalise pornography sites if they are deemed to "deprave and corrupt persons" and drawings or computer-generated images of child pornography, even if no children were harmed in their production.

"The causative link between exposure and behaviour is sufficiently well established that it already shapes our laws on pornography," the barrister wrote in a blog for her 5 Paper Buildings chambers. 
"If the net of criminal liability is cast wide enough to encompass this kind of content, there’s a compelling argument to criminalise inventions like Roxxxy too."

She added: "The sophistication of the design and technology behind Roxxxy marks a step forward for robotics. For human society, it’s an unquestionable regression."

True Companion, founded by computer engineer Douglas Hines, said claims the robot allowed men to carry out rape scenarios was "pure conjecture on the part of others".

"When our sex robot, Roxxxy, is using her Frigid Farrah personality... she provides her opinion or feedback, just as any person would on a date," read a company statement.

It added: "For instance, you would not immediately passionately kiss a person (male or female) that you just met on your first date. Likewise, Frigid Farrah would also tell you that she just met you if you try to 'move' too quickly.

"Frigid Farrah can be used to help people understand how to be intimate with a partner. Rape simply isn't an interaction that Roxxxy supports nor is it something that our customers are requesting."

More than three dozen arrested in alleged sex-trafficking ring in Compton

By Howard Blume


A prostitution ring shut down in Compton included several child and adult victims of human trafficking, authorities said.

A raid by law enforcement officers on Wednesday resulted in 36 arrests, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Three children were released to the care of the Department of Children and Family Services, officials said. Investigators also identified five women as victims of human trafficking; these individuals accepted what authorities described as “ongoing services.”

The tally of those arrested included four women on suspicion of soliciting undercover deputies for sex acts, and 13 women on suspicion of loitering for the purposes of prostitution. Each of the women was offered services from the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking.

Also arrested were 16 men, on suspicion of soliciting undercover deputies for sex acts, authorities said. In addition, three men were charged with felony pandering after they allegedly attempted to recruit an undercover deputy to work for them as a prostitute. The men are: Demario Bell, 27, of Moreno Valley; Damon Thomas, 25, from Los Angeles, and Damien Henry, 37, of Long Beach.

The raid was the work of the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, which includes the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and district attorney’s office, the FBI and the California Highway Patrol.

Girl may have helped plot Maryland teen's rape by fellow classmates

By JULIA JACOBO and DEE CARDEN,Good Morning America


EDITORS NOTE: Victor Gonzalez Gutierres has an ICE deportation hold.

A Maryland girl could face charges for allegedly helping plot an acquaintance's rape, police said.
Just after midnight on Sept. 2, an 18-year-old woman was opening the door to her home when she was grabbed from behind by three males, the Frederick Police Department said in a press release.

The suspects struck the victim, pulled her hair, put her in a vehicle and transported her to an unknown apartment in the area, where they proceed to rape her for several hours, police said.

The attack was not random, Frederick Police Sgt. Andrew Alcorn told ABC News.

A younger girl -- an acquaintance of the victim -- may have been involved in planning the crime, police said, referencing messages sent by the girl on social media before and after the alleged attack. She could later be charged with accessory before the fact as a co-conspirator to the crime, Alcorn said.

The victim told police she was held captive for several hours and raped by two of the males, whom she identified as high school classmates Edgar Chicas-Hernandez, 17, and Victor Gonzalez Gutierres, 19, police said.

She could not identify the third suspect, who had his face covered while he filmed the events, police said.

Before releasing her, the suspects threatened the victim with additional harm if she reported the crime to police. The victim reported the rape to police three days after she was kidnapped, police said.

Both Chicas-Hernandez and Gutierres were arrested last week without incident, police said. They were each charged kidnapping, first-degree rape, sodomy, and first- and second-degree assault, according to case documents.

Chicas-Hernandez is being charged as an adult, Alcorn said. They have both had their initial court appearances but did not enter pleas, Alcorn said. It is unclear if either of them has retained an attorney.

Authorities are still searching for a third suspect, whose identity remains unknown.

Police are working with prosecutors to decide whether to charge the acquaintance, who is a juvenile and younger than the suspects and victim, Alcorn said, describing the case as "sensitive" and "serious."

"It's just as important to rule her out of investigation as it is to bring her in," he said.

Alcorn said he didn't know the exact extent of the conversation the younger girl had with the suspects.

The attack does not appear to be gang-related at this point, Alcorn said.

Alcorn said situations like this rarely happen in the city of Frederick and that authorities are "taking it very seriously."

Police did not release the identities of the victim or the acquaintance who may later be charged.

Woman accused of raping man at knifepoint could be spared jail

By Lydia Smith,The Independent


A woman accused of raping a man may be spared from prison.

Lestina Marie Smith, from Saginaw, Michigan, was 17 when she allegedly raped a 19-year-old man inside his car and threatened him with a knife.

The victim said the couple had been dating for around two months in 2016, several months before the incident took place. But he insisted they had split up after Ms Smith hit him.

He said he was attacked by Ms Smith on 11 January, after she asked to meet up with him. Ms Smith reportedly filmed the incident.

Ms Smith, who is now 18, faced up to life in prison, but may now avoid a prison sentence after pleading “no contest to lesser charges”.

In the US, state law allows a defendant to plea made by a defendant in court when they do not contest a particular criminal charge against them. It is not necessarily an admission of guilt.

Ms Smith now faces up to 15 years in prison, but may receive probation and jail time.

Ms Smith’s mother, Tanesha Jackson, said her daughter was not a violent person.

“I’m not going to believe that my daughter raped him. I’m not going to believe it,” she told local news.

EDITORS NOTE: She is at least guilty of assault with an ugly weapon.

'End times are near': Rare two-headed rattlesnake found in the US

By Blahoo


A very rare two-headed rattlesnake has been caught in the US, and is being donated to a nature centre.

The venomous snake was found this week according to American TV station KLRT and is believed to have been captured near Forrest City in Arkansas.

A Facebook post from a friend of the man who caught the snake read "It is is absolutely real! But I don't think it's a sign from God that the end times are near.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) confirmed the snake is, indeed, real.

The author of the Facebook post, Mark Young, explained that Rodney Kelso, District Two Manager at Woodruff Electric, was the one who caught the snake.

Game and Fish are trying to nurse it back to health.

“It’s not doing too well right now. Obviously two heads, two minds might have been thinking different things. With predators it’s easy to get to want to do two different things,” Keith Stephens with the Arkansas Game and Fish said.

In 2016, a two-headed snake was found in Indiana.

Damn, Boulder, you sexy

By Deanna Hardies



Welcome to Boulder, a land of great hiking, goat yoga and bicycle shorts. No wonder it's often ranked as one of the fittest cities in America. It's also one of the sexiest.

The parks here are filled with lithe, ripped and flexible folks engaged in activities that show off some of their greatest assets. People-watching in Boulder is a great pastime not just because of the odd characters who abound. You'll also see enough hotties to fill your spank bank for months. 


Spending some quality alone time with a memory of that demi-deity you saw on campus is a great way to relieve stress and refocus your mind. But if you want to actually get it on with some of the gorgeous residents of this gorgeous city, the usual rules apply: Take care of your hygiene, show interest in a nonthreatening way, don't torture small animals for fun. That sort of thing.

Some of you are free from your parents' oversight for the first time in your life, so it's time for a recap of the birds and the bees.

1. Condoms are effective and easy and often available for free at places like Wardenburg or Planned Parenthood. They come in various colors, sizes and flavors, and if your partner refuses to use one the first time you're about to do the dirty, you should strongly consider noping the hell away from them. 

2. Sex is best when both/all parties are having a party. If a participant is just lying there like a starfish, you might wanna double-check if they actually want to have sex with you. Or if they're conscious. Seriously, don't have sex with unconscious people. That's horrifically unsexy.

3. If you are the owner of a vagina and you just had someone's hand/penis/strap-on up in your business, make sure you squeeze out some pee after the act. UTIs are a thing, and they're no fun. 

4. If you are the owner of a penis, you may not trust my expertise on the matter, so this advice comes from a friend who has suffered: When you're jacking it in the shower, don't use shampoo. You will regret it. Lotion is usually safe in a pinch, but really, you should just go ahead and spring for a bottle of lube. That stuff feels amazing.


For those of you who have mastered the basics, this could be the place to learn something new. CU and Boulder have groups where you can meet friends who are polyamorous, asexual or into BDSM.
If monogamous, vanilla, hetero sex is your cup of tea, go for it! You don't have to be a kinky omnisexual stamina champion with a constellation of a dozen lovers to have a rockin' sex life (although you have to admit that sounds pretty cool).

Just keep in mind that everyone wants something different, even if we're all looking for a good time.

So go out there and sex it up. Or don't. Whatever makes you happy. Good luck!
