Lackland Air Force Base Sex Scandal & Pornography

A hearing before the U.S. House Armed Services Committee in January 2013 investigated a growing scandal at joint base San Antonio-Lackland. The scandal included at least 59 alleged victims of sexual assault and investigated 32 basic training instructors.

In response to an increase in reports of sexual violence, the U.S. Air Force performed a sweep of nearly 100 bases for offensive and pornographic content. They found more 31,585 instances of such material in workspaces and highlighted that the majority of the 631 items deemed specifically pornographic were uncovered in Air Education and Training Command, which oversees training at Lackland and other bases.

Despite the hostile, sexually exploitive environment on base and the existence of a federal law (The Military Honor and Decency Act passed in 1996), which prohibits the sale of pornography in military base exchanges, Lackland Air Force continues to sell no less than 12 different pornographic magazines on base. Military bases throughout the U. S. and in much of the world do the same.
