Much of the world has been turning away from nuclear power, with its aging plants, legacy of meltdowns and radioactive waste. But some governments, big companies and billionaires including Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are convinced the technology can help save the planet. Unlike wind and solar sources, nuclear power can be switched on and off at any time, and without the planet-warming emissions produced by gas and coal. Investments of hundreds of millions of dollars are going toward a new gene

When Porn Consent Goes Horribly Wrong
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastI’d already done everything—double this, triple that—all with a giggle and a smile. I made it look easy and fun. That was my job as an adult actress but staying at the top in porn means being ready to level up. BDSM was the new trend and the next boundary to push. If you were in porn and wanted to keep working you didn’t say no to these companies.Before the #MeToo movement, consent was rarely discussed on porn sets—it was assumed. I’d show up with a fresh HIV/STD test less than 14 days old, a suitcase full of lingerie, lube and stilettos, and that was it. My presence implied consent. Signing a model release, giving up all rights to future profits for a flat day rate (also not optional), further proved it.BDSM sets were different. Consent wasn’t an assumption; it was a discussion. That went doubly for people like me—outsiders hired to act in this niche erotic hemisphere to film the kind of exchanges that actually happened between kinky people in real life (unlike porn sex—all stunts and acrobatics). The objects and methods of torture were discussed, in some cases before the scene was booked, and again before the consent was explicitly established. Read more at The Daily Beast.
