Spend any time in Amsterdam, and it soon becomes apparent that its reputation as one of Europe’s premiere destinations for debauchery and bacchanalian pursuits remains alive and well.

Is It Time For New Zealand to Recognise Polyamorous Marriages?

I wasn’t sure what I expected entering the house of Gabbi, Adrian and Bernie – a polyamorous triad, who work as sex workers and are active and enthusiastic members of New Zealand’s fetish scene. It's not that I was expecting to find chains hanging from the ceiling, or handcuffs on every bedpost - it’s just that I wasn’t prepared to find a home that was quite this… wholesome.

New Zealand's Girls Behind the Games

Though the fight for gender parity is happening in many industries, few have experienced as much controversy over gender as game development. In the last five years, the gender gap of gamers has closed considerably—with women now representing 45 percent of gamers. But the industry itself is still very much male-dominated. According to recent surveys, 74 percent of people working in game development are men.

Big Dairy and the Squeeze on Small Town New Zealand

Working in the dairy industry is hard work. It requires a huge amount of dedication to work before dawn every day in often harsh and difficult conditions. That hard work was once an investment New Zealand farmers made, as they earned their way to achieving one of the age-old dreams of this country—becoming a farm-owner.

The Scholar Helping America Grapple with Its Ugly History

Shock has emerged as the signature emotional response to the organized confusion of the Trump era. The president is at war with the same agents of federal law enforcement investigating his old campaign. Just months after an alt-right rally in Charlottesville ended in death, emboldened white supremacists are littering college campuses with propaganda. And an immigration system that was already broken has been thrown into even more chaos by a White House bent on vindictive, nativist policies. All
