Educate yourself on how the porn industry fuels the demand for sex trafficking, objectification, sexualized racism, nonconsensual content, sexual violence and abuse, and child sexual abuse material.

Stop the Demand
for
Objectification

Stop the Demand
for
Sexualized Racism

According to a content analysis of over 1,700 scenes on popular porn sites, videos featuring Black people disproportionately emphasize violence and aggression, perpetuate harmful racist stereotypes, and often depict Black people as “worse than objects.” (Fritz, Malic, Paul, & Zhou, 2021)

Stop the Demand
for
Nonconsensual Content

Most major porn sites do not verify the age or consent of all participants involved in the content uploaded to their platforms, making it incredibly easy to upload image-based abuse (sometimes referred to as “revenge porn”) or even child sexual abuse material (also known as “child pornography”). (Kristof, 2021)

Stop the Demand
