WASHINGTON, DC (February 21, 2023) – The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) called out fashion designer Luis De Javier for partnering with Pornhub during New York Fashion Week.

“Earth to Luis De Javier: Pornhub is a known exploiter, enabling child sexual abuse material, sex trafficking, and image-based sexual abuse to flourish. There is no legitimate reason why Luis de Javier should partner with Pornhub – which masquerades as a lawful business – during New York Fashion Week,” said Haley McNamara, vice president of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

“There is nothing glamorous or fashionable about the sexual abuse of children, women, and men. By partnering with Pornhub, De Javier is aligning his brand with Pornhub’s sexual abuse and exploitation. That is not a good look. De Javier should put an immediate stop to its Pornhub partnership.”

A December 2020 New York Times exposé revealed the rampant sexual abuse of minors on Pornhub; an online petition has garnered over 2 million signatures to shut down Pornhub for aiding sex trafficking; and multiple class action civil lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. and Canada on behalf of sexually abused children and trafficking victims.

Mainstream entities such as Visa, Mastercard, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Roku, Comcast, Unilever, Kraft-Heinz, PayPal, and many others have rightly refused to do business with Pornhub. More information can be found at
