Victory! Hilton Worldwide Agrees to Remove all On-Demand “Adult” Movies

Hilton Worldwide has confirmed its policy change to remove all on-demand pornographic videos from all of its properties. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation praises Hilton for being willing to take a stand against sexual exploitation.

Many hotels have long been concerned with human trafficking that could occur on their properties, and since pornography contributes to the demand for sex trafficking, Hilton’s decision to remove their pay-per-view pornographic movies is a significant step in the right direction. In addition to the links with trafficking, pornography also contributes to sexual violence, child exploitation, and lifelong porn addictions. It is praiseworthy that Hilton is willing to listen to its customers who are concerned about the harms of pornography, and to reject profiting from sexual exploitation.

Hilton Worldwide has given the following statement: “We have listened carefully to our customers and have determined that adult video-on-demand entertainment is not in keeping with our company’s vision and goals moving forward.”

After news of Hilton’s decision, numerous individuals took to Twitter to tell Hilton thank you:
