Workers remove sex toys from metal molds at the Doc Johnson factory in Los AngelesChad Braverman is an early riser -- you have to be to keep ahead as America's top sex toy magnate, overseeing production of tens of thousands of "pleasure products" a week.

Ali Larijani in Tehran on May 29, 2016 after he retained the speakership of Iran's parliamentModerate conservative Ali Larijani retained the speakership of Iran's parliament Sunday despite major gains for reformists in February elections, benefiting from credit gained by his support for last year's nuclear deal. Several lawmakers from the reformist camp broke ranks to vote against the head of their own List of Hope, Mohammad Reza Aref, who lost by 103 votes to 173. February's election was widely seen as a referendum on last July's nuclear deal with world powers led by the United States, the signature policy of moderate President Hassan Rouhani.
