Sex robot brothel launches crowdfunding campaign | The Sun

Sex robot brothel launches crowdfunding campaign | The Sun

United Kingdom
RANDY sex-bot enthusiasts will soon be able to bonk dirty droids at the world’s first “consent-focused” robot brothel. A funding campaign for the US outlet will even let punters pay $10,000 to claim the virginity of a sex robot. The brothel will be named Eve’s Robot Dreams, and will focus on guests building relationships with the sex robots. Of course, it will inevitably lead to a bot-bonking session whether the robot consents or not, we’d imagine. “Guests can visit in the futuristic cafe where they can get to know the world’s first companion robots,” the campaign explains. “After they have met, guests have the option to spend time with their favourite robot in a private room.” The brothel will be occupied by Realbotix sex robots. Realbotix is a spin-off of Californian sex doll gian

This Class Teaches High School Students To Respect Consent (HBO) | VICE News

United States
The first woman to accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the event happened at a party back in the 1980's, when they were high school classmates. With the fate of his confirmation potentially hinging on her testimony, a partisan debate is raging, raising questions about how young people navigate consent.

United States
One woman is speaking out after she says she was groped on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. Loraine Hemingway, 26, told Inside Edition the alleged incident happened to her on a JetBlue flight. “I woke up in the middle of the night and I had that distinct feeling of being touched,” she said. “Specifically, I could feel fingers under my thigh.” The graduate student said nothing to the male passenger sitting next to her, hoping it was an accident. But then she felt his fingers again, she said.
