Pornhub Pornography Empire is Crumbling

A mass exodus is underway at Pornhub’s owner, MindGeek, as the CEO, COO, and a number of staffers (some reports say as many as 70% of employees) have left the company. MindGeek is the privately held Canadian company that owns and runs some of the largest pornography websites, including Pornhub. These dramatic changes are happening in the wake of lawsuits, loss of ad revenue, and government scrutiny led by The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) and its allies.

Read the full press statement from NCOSE here.

Over the past several years, NCOSE has been targeting organizations that were advertising on MindGeek’s websites, and a major factor has been the help of allies and supporters who have joined the #DismantlePornhub campaign. This is a key victory in the battle to end the rampant abuse and exploitation that has been facilitated on Pornhub and the rest of MindGeek’s network of sites.

Although this is a victory worth celebrating, the fight to defend human dignity continues. You can help! Scroll down to learn about the lawsuits, latest news and updates, and opportunities to support this movement.
