IHG removes porn, makes statement against “sexual exploitation”

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), an international hotel company, worked with NCOSE to ensure pornography distribution is prohibited in all of its hotel chains, globally.

IHG sent a communication to all of its hotels, informing them of the policy re-enforcement to be implemented as soon as respective contracts run out. IHG has also pledged to continuously inspect all of its hotels to ensure the standard is enforced, and promised strict consequences for those that do not comply.

An IHG Spokespersons stated: “Through our discussions with NCOSE, we were able to identify ways to better assess and strengthen our compliance standard prohibiting the airing of NC-17 content or equivalent, which includes increased communications to hotels and rigorous audits. This further bolsters dialogue we have had for several years with numerous governmental and non-governmental organizations on a range of initiatives designed to safeguard human dignity—from supply chain protocols and human rights to sexual exploitation.”

National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.
