In Lima, Peru, 7 out of 10 women are catcalled by men every day—but a new public service campaign is showing guys just how foolish they are for harassing women by way of the women who taught them the most: their mothers. The PSA, called “Silbale A Tu Madre” (Whistle At Your Mother), began when Everlast, the organization producing the campaign, spoke to the mothers of two men guilty of sexual harassment. These moms agreed to get dolled up in a disguise and then walk by their sons on the street. Read More
It’s really frustrating that it sometimes takes super depressing PSAs to make us address our unsafe behavior and do something about it, but you should watch this one, even though it will make you cry your eyeballs out. Read More
In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention month, Mariska Hargitay, the beautiful, bad ass actor and activist famous for her role as Detective Olivia Benson, has joined forces with USA Network to say "NO MORE" to sexual assault and domestic violence. In collaboration with Hargitay's foundation, Joyful Heart, the “No More” public awareness campaign, and the cast of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", USA will be holding a 16-hour "No More Excuses" marathon on Sunday, April 27th from 10am-2am ET, to galvanize awareness for sexual assault and domestic violence.

Sex permeates the lives of teenagers in one way or another; whether it’s vaguely through the media, gossip at school or directly from adults and educators. A lot of the time teens have more misconceptions and questions than answers. Read More
In a campaign to stop violence against women, a new PSA is placing the onus on men to step up and step in when they see lines being crossed by their peers. Titled "Be That Guy," the 30-second animation was first played at a NASCAR race in mid-November. It shows a race, one of our great American pastimes, where a lot of people are crammed together in a loud public arena to cheer as slightly larger Hot Wheels careen around in circles (growing up in the land of INDYCAR, I still don't get it).

Neko Case, BUST's upcoming October/November cover girl and crooning songstress extraordinaire, has a new album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, out on Anti- September 3rd, and it's some of her most revealing stuff yet. Her unique, full voice ain't hiding anything on this record. Since her move to Vermont, Case seems to be showing a deeper side of herself to her audience. Read More
This is the real world, people, and whether or not you watch porn on a regular basis, you may have noticed that sexy time is not always as hard-core, pleasurable, or even as interesting as it is seems to be in porn. Read More
The latest campaign from Chicago’s public health department is really turning heads. With the magic of photo retouching, it features teen boys with pregnant bellies and the tagline: “Unexpected? Most teen pregnancies are. Avoid unplanned pregnancies and STIs. Use condoms. Or wait.” The ads direct viewers to BeYouBeHealthy.org, a site that helps teens find info on local clinics, teen healthcare rights, and sexuality in general. As you might expect, not everybody loves the sensational nature of these ads. Read More
With major debate over whether or not consent should be taught in public school sexual education curriculums, this short PSA reminds us of how someone should react when they find another individual passed out on their couch. Although this should also include checking to make sure the individual is safe, and that they don't need hospital assistance, apparently some people still just need to understand that being passed out is not an excuse for sexually harassing someone. It's pretty sad that some people still need to learn this.   Video Credit: Upworthy. Read More
Growing up in the late 60s, one of my feminist heroes was Batgirl from the Batman TV show. The character Barbara Gordon,  librarian by day, quickly morphed into her alter ego Batgirl when trouble arose. She was sexy, tough, rode a motorcycle, got to wear a fabulous costume, and kicked major butt. Played by  Yvonne Craig (seen here), check out this PSA demanding equal pay for women. Read More
