Hyatt Hotels to Remove In-Room Porn, Globally
Washington, DC – Hyatt Hotel Corporation has changed its policy and will now remove all on-demand pornography from its guestrooms worldwide. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation applauds Hyatt’s decision to reject profits from pornography—an industry based on sexual exploitation.
“With this step, Hyatt is proving itself to be a leader among corporations that value a positive and safe environment for their consumers,” said Patrick Trueman, President and CEO of NCOSE. “Hyatt was eager to work with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation after we reached out to the corporation to share concerns about the neurological and psychological harms of pornography. By removing on-demand pornography, Hyatt is also taking a stand against prostitution and sex trafficking, which are crimes that often takes place in hotels. Pornography not only increases the demand for prostitution and sex trafficking, but sex trafficking victims are also often used in, and trained how to perform sexually by pornography. NCOSE is grateful to Hyatt for its policy change and commitment to oppose sexual exploitation.”
NCOSE encourages all to tweet @HyattTweets to thank the corporation for its policy change. To learn more about the links between pornography and sex trafficking, visit: stoptraffickingdemand.
