Pornography is a major contributor to the increased problem of sex trafficking in today's world. Pornography contributes to the demand for trafficked women and children by cultivating a taste for extremely deviant sexual behavior. Current brain science research explains how porn users become desensitized and demand harder material and often seek to act out what they have viewed in porn. They then use prostituted and trafficked women and children.
Additionally, women and children are often trafficked for the production of pornography. Many performers in the professional porn industry report that force, fraud and coercion is often used on them in order to get them to perform. Additionally, more and more pimps are finding that they can record forced sex acts and upload to the Internet to make more money through porn sites or to use as advertising to entice more "johns" to buy the women they are trafficking and prostituting.
Additionally, pornography is often used as a tool to train trafficked women and children so that they will know what is expected of them and become desensitized to the abuse they will be forced to endure.
Please realize that the problem of sex trafficking will never be solved unless we also do something about the issue of pornography and the pandemic of harm it is causing. Please see www.StopTraffickingDemand.com for more information.
