Porn isn’t only harmful to those who watch it, it’s also harmful to those who create it.

We can’t tell you how many people scoff when we tell them that one of the negative aspects of pornography is its inseparable link to sex trafficking. Many have the same attitude as this guy who commented on our Instagram, asking us about why we were against porn and then when we responded, this was his reply:

Unfortunately, there are many in our society that are blind to the link between porn and sex trafficking. The porn industry is a sketchy industry to begin with, but it takes a really dangerous turn when porn involving sex trafficking victims is made and distributed globally online. Countless women have been kidnapped, abused, drugged, threatened, and coerced into doing porn; this is, by definition, sex trafficking/slavery.

You may be asking, how does this all tie back to the average viewer at home? Truthfully, in this digital age, there is no way for a user to tell if what they are watching was made illegally or if all parties are there willingly. For this reason, clicking porn directly fuels the demand for sex traffickers to make money by selling video of their sex slaves to porn sites.

Knowledge is power, and being aware of the facts is an important step in decreasing the demand for porn and helping to eliminate sex trafficking. This infographic we created details the giant role that porn plays in this global issue. Check out the info below, and learn about the true nature of the porn industry:
