A Third Case of Child Abuse Showed up on This Mainstream Porn Site

Excerpt from The Sun


A fourth-grade Catholic school teacher will spend nearly seven years behind bars for filming herself raping a teenage girl and then uploading the videos to a porn website.

Dawn Giannini recorded several videos of herself sleeping with a girl – who is also a relative of hers – when the girl was just 16 or 17 years old, prosecutors told The Almanac.

She faced a litany of charges, which include lewd acts with a child and sexual penetration with a foreign object.

In November, Giannini pleaded no contest to four out of the 19 charges she faced.

On Friday, she was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison.


This is the 3rd public case we have seen this year of sexual abuse videos on Pornhub. First was a case of 20+ sex-trafficked women, the second was a 15-year-old girl’s sexual abuse, and now there’s this gut-wrenching story.

Yet despite these clear intersections of sexual abuse and the mainstream porn industry, Visa, a credit card network with one of the largest market shares, is partnering with the pornography industry by processing payments for pornography with themes of sexual violence, racism, incest, and the fetishization of minors.

By doing so, Visa is supporting and normalizing the pornography industry, despite its sexually exploitive nature including harm to performers, sex trafficking victims, and even large scale public health.
