“Pornhub, one of the Internet's most popular porn websites, is making it easier for victims of "revenge porn" to get their videos removed.

Pornhub, which had more than 18.5 billion visits in 2014, has added a page on its website that allows people to flag revenge porn -- videos featuring them that have been posted on the website without a subject's consent. The Pornhub submissions page went online three months ago, but was made public this week.

"Pornhub has always taken requests to remove of this kind of content very seriously and have clearly indicated that these types of unauthorized uploads are forbidden in our terms of use," Corey Price, the site's vice president of operations. told HuffPost by email. "This has been the case since day one. The decision to completely overhaul our current system and streamline the reporting process was simply a reaffirmation of this stance."

Price said he hoped the new Pornhub page will hasten the decline of revenge porn. Complaints to the website on the subject have declined about 38 percent in the past two years.”
