We Must Address the Demand
You are helping us to stop the demand for exploited women & children.
“There would be a break-in process where she would get tied up to a toilet without water or any food or nothing.”
“At that point, we would offer drugs because that would start the numbing – numbing the soul against anything that’s gonna happen.”
“They were still children. You could see it in the way they acted.”
Those are just some of the horrifying details that Jacob—a former international crime-syndicate’s hired hand—agreed to share on camera about his former work mentally “breaking” 15 and 16-year-old foreign girls who had just been told of their new lives as sex slaves.
The ugly truth is it’s pornography that drives much of this madness.
Men, viewing pornographers’ supposedly “harmless” smut, get infected with the desire to act out what they see.
Since they find few women willing to engage in the deviant acts they see, demand for prostituted women dramatically increases—providing criminals with enormous incentives to force innocent young girls into sex slavery
Sex trafficking is a worldwide epidemic that is rising rapidly in the United States. Pornography is fueling the demand for trafficked women and children. A recent study found that men who frequently use porn are 74% more likely to visit a prostituted woman. Women and men are also trafficked within the porn industry.
MIM/PornHarms will not sit idly by while innocent women and children are exploited for any reason. In order to halt sex trafficking, pornography must be cut off. MIM has launched its Stop Trafficking Demand project to educate all people—from government officials to trafficking organizations to the general public.
Some of the things we are doing to fight the demand for trafficked women and children:
Our new website www.StopTraffickingDemand.com is playing a major role by enabling us to:
- Collect and share heartbreaking stories from the young women and girls who’ve experienced life in sex trafficking firsthand;
- Educate the public and organizations who fight sex trafficking about the central role pornographers’ smut plays in all of this madness;
- Distribute hard-hitting videos and easy to understand handouts about pornography’s harm;
- Provide a simple way concerned citizens can immediately contact their elected Representatives about this critical issue.
We have built a database of over 500 anti-trafficking organizations and are in touch with them regularly to aid in their efforts to stop demand.
I speak around the country at conferences about the links between pornography and trafficking. I’ve educated thousands over the last three years, including law enforcement, elected officials, business leaders and activists.
We comment regularly in the news and are featured in documentaries and TV programs to educate on this issue.
We are currently developing a major new project that will significantly change this issue and help people to see that all forms of sexual exploitation are intertwined. Pornography, sexually oriented businesses, prostitution, child sexual abuse, sex trafficking—all are linked.
Help us expose this continuum of exploitation to begin solving the problem. Give what you can to these efforts today.
Thank you for not ignoring this sad reality. It will take our courage, creativity and loud voices to make a difference.
Yours in the fight,
Executive Director, Morality in Media and PornHarms.com
