Our New Film, Liberated: Hookup Culture and the New Sexual Revolution

We're excited to announce that we have nearly completed our next documentary, Liberated: Hookup Culture and the New Sexual Revolution!

Freedom Behind Bars

“… I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:36 (NIV) Where do we locate women who have been sold for sex? There are many answers to this question, but one may come as a surprise.

Myths of The Girlfriend Experience

In our culture today there is a dangerous cover story being told.
