The nuclear talks between Iran and world powers will resume on November 29 in Vienna, the European Union and Tehran say. Talks have been stalled for long months following the election of a hardline new Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi. Washington is believed to be increasingly skeptical that a return to the accord is in fact possible. A top official at a new right-wing Dutch public television channel resigns after reports linking him to antisemitic propaganda. Taco Dankers, head of the supervisory board at Ongehoord Nederland Unheard Netherlands , quits after the NRC daily said he runs a think-tank that promotes conspiracies about Jews and has made antisemitic comments in interviews. Netanyahu is widely believed to have torpedoed the budget under his power-sharing government with Benny Gantz, in order to bring down that coalition and avoid passing the premiership on to him as had been agreed between the two as part of their deal.

Male sex workers catering to more women and couples, as legal reform lags. Demand for male escorts from an exclusively female clientele is on the rise, with a quarter of Australia's male sex workers now catering to women and couples, a survey of websites in 61 countries has found. Uganda and Argentina are the only other countries that have more male escorts seeking females and couples than solely male clients. And while the vast majority — 80 per cent — of the estimated 42 million sex workers worldwide are female, it is no longer difficult to find male escorts that cater to women. While more than 57 per cent of identified websites catered to male customers only, 11 per cent were specifically for female clients and a similar number of sites were for couples, most of the opposite sex. As expected, the survey found twice as many male escorts had male clients only 72, as against the 32, escorts for women or couples.
