Non-consensually Recorded and/or Shared Pornography
Discord’s lack of robust moderation has allowed pornography to flourish within its thousands of servers. Pornography trading—often including illegally-obtained, non-consensual, and even child sexual abuse material—is rampant on Discord. Entire servers are dedicated to finding and sharing non-consensual sexual images of girls and women—sometimes known as revenge porn. Links to these pornography servers are scattered throughout other sites like Reddit, drawing more and more users to exploitative content through Discord. Discord made international news in 2020 when one server revealed over1. 140,000 images of women and even minors had been widely shared and distributed.
NCOSE researchers found and documented some of these servers in only a few clicks—and accessed the demonstrated content with a Discord account set up as a 13 year old.
