After nearly three years on the Dirty Dozen List, Hilton Worldwide stops selling porn

Hilton Worldwide, one of the world’s leading hotel and leisure companies with operations in more than in 85 countries, announced on August 17, 2015 that it is joining the ranks of competitors such as Marriott, Omni, Drury, Ritz-Carlton and Nordic Choice Hotels, with its implementation of a no pornographic video policy across their brand.

A statement from Hilton Worldwide said: “We are making immediate changes to our global brand standards to eliminate adult video-on-demand entertainment in all our hotels worldwide. While the vast majority of our properties already do not offer this content today, this content will be phased out of all other hotels subject to the terms of their contracts. We believe in offering our guests a high degree of choice and control during their stays with us, including Wi-Fi on personal devices. However, we have listened carefully to our customers and have determined that adult video-on-demand entertainment is not in keeping with our company’s vision and goals moving forward.”

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.
