67% of Americans say they have not talked about domestic violence with their friends; even more, 73% have not discussed sexual assault. Even though 75% of Americans say that they would step in and help a stranger being abused, the reality is most people do not help. For example, among the 70% of women who experienced domestic violence and then told someone about it, more than half (58%) said that no one helped them. But 64% of Americans say if we talk more about domestic violence and sexual assault, it would make it easier to help someone. The Avon Foundation for Women funded this survey to better understand why domestic violence and sexual assault remain so inherently hidden and marginalized in our society, said Carol Kurzig, President of the Avon Foundation for Women. The data shows us that conversations about these issues simply are not happening. That silence leaves victims trapped by the shame, stigma and fear that these crimes carry. If we can encourage more people to start talking, we can end that cycle and bring these issues to light in a new way. The full report can be viewed at nomore.org/nomorestudy . The new, celebrity-driven NO MORE PSA directly addresses the silence and inaction of Americans on these critical issues. The NO MORE PSA campaign was spearheaded by the Joyful Heart Foundation , one of the many championing organizations behind the creation of the NO MORE symbol, and was directed by actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, the Foundations President and Founder, in her directorial debut. The campaign, involving more than 40 celebrities and public figures to engage bystanders to get involved, was developed in partnership with Y&R and photographed by world-renowned Timothy White. “Being a part of NO MORE from the beginning has been a great privilege, especially the launch in Washington DC, where I got to stand with Vice President Biden and Attorney General Holder,” said Hargitay. “And if that wasn’t enough, directing the NO MORE PSAs was a dream come true. Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors.

I’m excited that this collection finally provides women with an entire head-to-toe look.” Q: Can you give us a peek into your design process? How do you present your ideas? A: “I shop quite a bit so I am always aware what’s on the market and what is wanted and needed. I design things that I feel are missing. I am not afraid of pushing the envelope and giving her more than just a regular pair of black tights and shirt. “I get inspiration from things I read in a magazine or places I visit and often bring photos, fabric swatches and ideas to our design meetings. We all sit around a big table and bounce ideas off of each other. I always focus on the look of each piece, because I want women to have workout wear that’s really cool and fashionable with the newest technology.” Q: You’ve also partnered with other companies to baby gear, furniture. Do you have a favorite line that you’ve worked on? A: “They are all special to me. I take each project really seriously and pour a lot of my personal time into making them great. I have a collection with Babies ‘R’ Us called Truly Scrumptious that I am really proud of. A lot of my inspiration for the collection came directly from my children so this project is definitely dear to my heart. After four kids, I have figured out what works and what doesn’t.
They are finding women celebrities to make sex tapes.It was not a romantic relationship that Farrah had with James Deen.It was set up.(Reality star) Tila Tequila was staged with lighting with her girlfriends in Las Vegas. The founder and co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, Steven Hirsch, acknowledged the landscape of the porn industry has changed, and that D-list celebs now mean big money. I think that were dealing with several issues.The one that most people talk about is the amount of free content on the Internet and how to deal with that.What weve chosen to do is work with free sites.One of the things that we did decide to do is work with celebrity sex tapes, he said. What we did is we leased a celebrity sex tape with Farrah Abraham and we took a five minute clip and put it onto one of the three sites.And as a result of that, they had 12 million views of that five-minute clip within the first 10 days.We surrounded that clip with links back to Vivid.com, and then those people came to Vivid.com to watch the movie, which equated to $500,000 in sales. But Hirsch would not go so far as to say Vivid relies on celebrity sex tape income to stay afloat. The one thing about celebrity sex tapes is they dont fall into any sort of schedule. Sometimes its two or three in a row and then not any for a year.So it depends if were able to find some or not, he said. This year weve been lucky with Farrah and Sydney.Ultimately they are not a huge part of our business, but its what helps to drive our brand, and gets the name out there, and drives traffic to all of the Vivid properties. He does, however, acknowledge pursuing young women in the news.Absolutely.Yes, yes, yes.Were very proactive, Hirsch said. If we see something in the news we try to contact them or make them some sort of public offer. Our sources say this pursuit is a huge change in how the industry works. Where companies like Vivid once waited for a homemade sex tape to be leaked to them a la Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lees tape in1995 nowadays, the company prefersto make them happen themselves. Sydney Leathers, New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiners former sexting partner, was lured by the money and fame that a celebrity sex tape brings.In an early interview with FOX411, she said she had rejected an offer to make a sex tape with Vivid. But less than a week later, the 23-year-old did indeed shoot a porno with a porn pro for Vivid, for a large, undisclosed sum of money. According to Leathers, her change of heart happened because: Everyone already thought I did it, so why not? Jasmine Waltz is a model and actress whohas appeared in the films “Demon” and “Poker Run.” Waltz made a private sex tape with her ex-boyfriend, and told a tale of how Vivid not only wanted her to sign off on her personal tape, but make another one under the companys direction. It was something that was made already (with her ex-boyfriend). I definitely sort of had forgotten that it had been made.After some things have happened in my life, I was approached by Vivid where they wanted to do a deal where they pick a porn star, or whoever I pick, and they would film the whole thing, she said.
