CANADA FALLING BEHIND ON POLICING ABUSE AND HARASSMENT IN SPORTS
In the late 1990s, ice hockey star Sheldon Kennedy’s sexual abuse case against coach Graham James shocked Canadian sports into action. Canada stepped up, writing one of the most potent sexual harassment and abuse policies in the world. That was then. Twenty years later, many people believe that Canada has fallen asleep on the job. When it comes to protecting athletes, the country now lags behind the US, Australia and the UK, according to recent reports. The ongoing trial of gymnastics coach Dave Brubaker and other highprofile cases involving Alpine Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee serve as proof.
CONTROVERSIAL SEX ISLAND IS MAKING A COMEBACK
“Sex Island”– allegedly a drug-fueled orgy/ vacation, offering unlimited sex with sex workers – is making a comeback despite a backlash last year. All guests are provided with multiple prostitutes, unlimited food, alcohol, and a bevy of raw and raunchy activities to fulfill their most outlandish fantasies. The ‘island’ is located just off Cartagena, Colombia.

63-YEAR-OLD AUSTRALIAN CHARGED WITH CHILD ABUSE
A Sydney-based man described the sexual acts he wanted to perform on a 10-yearold to a cop masquerading as her mum. Two months later, detectives swooped in to arrest and charge the man for the alleged online procurement of a child for sex. ‘Strike Force Trawler’ detectives say they began online chatting with the 63-year-old in August 2018. Police allege detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad’s Child Exploitation Internet Unit (CEIU) made the man believe he was speaking with a 13-year-old girl, engaging in “highly sexualised conversations” on a social media application.
• Corn Flakes and Graham Crackers Were Invented to Curb Masturbation John Harvey Kellogg was famous for the decades he spent running the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium for the newly minted Seventh-Day Adventist Church. In what was a somewhat bizarre precursor to the modern ‘wellness’ clinics, Kellogg used baffling machines of his oÜn invention), which involved getting pelted with water or thumped and shocked with electricity. Sometimes he prescribed shoving electricity and water up the urethra, a process to be done with “skillful catheterism.” Yuk. He also – as you may have intuited – invented cornflakes, along with his brother Will. They were keen to keep both the bowels and sexual organs of Sanitarium guests free of congestion. Eventually, Will decided to add sugar to the recipe and mass market the cereal. The preachers also had suggestions for how to curb horniness. They believed that diet had a significant impact on libido and recommended people eat bland vegetarian foods to reduce their sex drive. Hmmmm...
• Vibrators were invented to cure women of "hysteria."
During the Victorian era, “irritable” women were frequently diagnosed with a catch-all disease called hysteria. Since masturbation was frowned upon, women sought treatment for this “disease” from doctors, who manually massaged their vaginas – under the impression that the relief would rid them of hysteria. Because these massages proved so painstaking, doctors invented the vibrator to speed up the process. Well done, team!
