"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."

Gloria Steinem, 2006

For a DOCUMENTARY, VIDEOS, and a number of articles and reports addressing how pornography fuels the demand for prostituted and trafficked women and children, please scroll down on this page. Thank you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyone can agree that forced prostitution and sex trafficking of women and children is an atrocity and should be fought against. However, not everyone agrees that pornography is harmful. Yet girls, boys and women who are trafficked for sex are sometimes used for filmed prostitution, (pornography), in the same way as they are used for "regular" prostitution. Therefore,  if someone views or buys anonymous pornography that is available, particularly on the Internet and especially from Third World countries, one can of course never know for certain if the participants in it are there of their own free will, or if they are victims of illegal and usually violent sex trafficking.

Additionally, trafficked individuals are often used for the most heinous and violent types of pornography, because most people who are doing pornography by choice will usually not submit to certain harmful and repellent acts such as bestiality, extremely painful torture, having excrement smeared on them and having to eat it, etc. However, these sorts of films are made more and more because the demand for them continues to increase. So those who wish to profit off of that demand by creating the supply must find a way to create them, and that is usually only possible through force and by using women and girls who have no choice because they are being held captive in sexual slavery.

Additionally pornography relentlessly trains the many millions of boys and men who use it into becoming lifelong consumers of commercial sexual exploitation, or "Johns." It is commonly admitted by males that they want to act out what they see in pornography, and that they sometimes then go ahead and do so. So eventually many (if not most) pornography users seek out prostituted women, girls, men, boys or children in order to live out their pornographic sexual fantasies.  As such, pornography is a very significant demand factor for prostitution and international sex trafficking, particularly of women and girls.

When men seek out women to buy for sex they usually have an idea in mind of the sort of sex acts that they wish to engage in, because they have already usually fantasized about engaging in those acts while watching that sort of pornography. Often they want to make absolutely sure that they can engage in those depraved and often harmful sex acts with no resistance on the part of the other person involved who is usually a vulnerable woman or girl. The only way that they can make sure that this is the case is if they purchase someone for sex who is under the complete control of a pimp or trafficker so that the person that they have bought to use for sex  has no choice but to do whatever the "customer" wants because the consequences of not doing so will be some sort of punishment such as violenceor torture, and in some cases even death.

So whether boys and men act out degrading pornography on their wives or girlfriends, strangers when they are raping them, or on the prostituted or trafficked girls and women they buy for sex,  such pornography harms everyone involved. All of society pays the price if they remain silent and do nothing about the brutally dehumanizing pornography industry that so enthusiastically promotes violence against women, men and children as acceptable and even enjoyable.

For more information on this extremely important connection, and how all forms of commercial sexual exploitation such as prostitution and stripping are connected to all other forms, please watch all of the videos lower down on this page and read the below resources which are available on the Internet.  (The first one is on this website exclusively.)

"Trafficking in people is bigger than it's ever been. Slavery is bigger now than it was in the 1800s, and more profitable. The estimated profits from it are bigger than that from the illegal arms trade. Because of globalization, the Internet, the increased inequity between nations, and between rich and poor, ease of travel -- all of those things have made slavery much easier, more profitable, and much more prevalent."

Gloria Steinem

By Tom Ashbrook
 

"Political activist and women’s movement icon Gloria Steinem came out swinging decades ago as an irresistible voice for feminism and freedom as a new generation defined it.

She was a beauty and a battler. Founded Ms. Magazine when that was an earthquake in publishing. Stood up again and again for women’s rights, women’s equality, women’s freedom.

Gloria Steinem still does all that, but at 72, she’s widened her focus, too. Her latest cause: 21st century slavery and human trafficking. There’s a lot of it. A shocking, half-hidden world of debt-bondage and sex slavery and outright servitude. And Steinem is on it."

"This Hour, On Point: Gloria Steinem on freedom and slavery in the 21st century.

Guests: Gloria Steinem, writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist. Co-founder of Ms. Magazine, and author of Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, and Marilyn: Norma Jean. She has written the foreward to a new book: Enslaved: True Stories of Modern Day Slavery,

United Nations: GENDER AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

The United Nations definition of human trafficking is “The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation".

The Asia Pacific region is seen as the most vulnerable region for trafficking because of its huge population pyramid, growing urbanization, and extensive poverty. Trafficking is a violation of human rights. Victims of trafficking suffer from physical and mental abuse and social stigmatization. They become isolated, losing ties with their former lives and families. At the societal level, trafficking undermines development efforts and raises social and health costs.

The ongoing abuses of human rights and the growing social and economic inequality within and between countries has led to an environment in which many women have few choices and resources, and are thus vulnerable to being lured, mislead or forced into being trafficked.

Women who are most vulnerable to being trafficked are those aged 10-35 and who are impoverished, uneducated or from indigenous, ethnic minority, rural or refugee groups. Such women often lack access to education and meaningful employment opportunities. Harmful cultural and customary practices also perpetuate discriminatory and violent practices that further diminish women's opportunities and lead to further marginalization and commodification.

Promoting gender equality through the elimination of gender discrimination and gender-based violence will enhance the dignity and human rights of women and girls and prevent their being trafficked.


"The quantity of and access to pornography has grown exponentially since the 1980's alongside the growth of the video cassette/DVD and then the Internet industries, while the content has become increasingly violent, degrading, and harmful to participants and viewers. Moreover, sex trafficking, which is closely related to pornography, is now widely acknowledged as a significant international problem. One cannot understand the dynamics of demand without careful attention to both prostitution and pornography. Activists must confront pornography and prostitution in any effort to attack sex trafficking."

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality  

- by Gail Dines

 

Click picture above to order "PORNLAND" at Amazon.com now!
 
DESCRIPTION
 
Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality takes an unflinching look at today’s porn industry: the stories woven into the images, the impact on our culture, the effects on us as men and women, the business machine that creates and markets porn, and the growing legitimacy of porn in mainstream media. Above all, PORNLAND examines the way porn shapes and limits sexual imaginations and behaviors.
 
Although we are surrounded by pornographic images, many people are not aware of just how cruel and violent the industry is today. PORNLAND shows how today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy and Penthouse magazines — how competition in the industry and consumer desensitization have pushed porn toward hard core extremes. And, with the advent of the internet and other digital technologies, users don’t have to wander far to access porn; todaythe average age of first viewing is about 11 for boys, and studies reveal that young men, who consume more porn than ever before, have difficulty forming healthy relationships.
 
PORNLAND also looks at how our porn culture affects the way women and girls think about their bodies, their sexuality and their relationships. PORNLAND: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality argues that rather than sexually liberating or empowering us, porn offers us a plasticized, formulaic, generic version of sex that is boring, lacking in creativity and disconnected from emotion and intimacy.

Shared Hope International specifically focuses on fighting the demand for commercial sexual exploitaiton, including addressing pornography as a very significant demand factor for sex trafficking. 

Please see their excellent report on this issue:

Pornography: Creating Demand for International Sex Trafficking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."

Gloria Steinem, 2006

Please remember that it is not up to AntiPornography.org, the other organizations listed on this page, the government, or "someone else" to do the entire job of fighting against the harms of pornography, prostitution, trafficking, and other forms of sexual exploitation or abuse. It is an enormous job and the responsibility lies with each and every one of us to do our part as part of the bigger team of those who are choosing to be part of the solution of creating a more just and humane world for everyonel rather than the problem.

What you do does matter, so for the sake of all those across the world who are being exploited and abused, and for the sake of the future of humanity, please do what you can to create a more compassionate and safer society for all.

Thank you for whatever you are able to give or do to help create a better world for everyone, especially for women, children and future generations.
