Sex Trafficking Within The Porn Industry

By Uloop Archives on May 8, 2013

Sex trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, and harbor of people through threats and force or other kinds of coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

When you think of sex trafficking, you assume it only occurs in poorer countries, but it actually affects everyone around the globe, even within the United States. Shocked? Well, I found the following information, which is even more surprising.

While I was doing sex trafficking researching for a class presentation, I stumbled across some disturbing information that has now been integrated into my thoughts and perception towards the porn industry. Knowing many friends who have admitted to searching, downloading, and watching porn, it was definitely shocking when I learned that the actresses used in porn videos and in pornography are sometimes actually sex trafficking victims.

According to The Connections Between Pornography and Sex Trafficking, people would assume most of the actors and actresses signed up for the job, but in actuality, there are victims of trafficking who have been scammed, forced, or abducted into the porn industry. On set, the women (and even girls) are often beaten and raped on film and forced to perform sexual acts. Several porn actresses such as Jersey Jaxin, Genevieve, Jessie Jewels, and Ashley Brooks have reported being victims of abuse or at least have seen the abuse issued behind the scenes.

To hear more of their insight, read Porn Stars are Abused and are Human Trafficking Victims. Shelley Lubben, ex-porn star and one of the world’s leading reformers in the anti-pornography movement, shares information on the horrors of the porn industry on her site.

The reason why we do not hear much about the horrors of sex trafficking within the porn industries is because it is a large part of our entertainment and kept hidden behind closed doors. I am not pushing an agenda to completely abolish porn industries, but to inform those who are unaware of the dilemma occurring today. To those who search or download porn, keep in mind that the people you see on your computer or TV screen could actually be victims themselves.
