The Slave and the Porn Star: Sexual Trafficking and Pornography (NEW Peer-Reviewed Research Article)

Hey everyone! An IMPORTANT new peer-reviewed study by Pornography Harms on the links between pornography and sex trafficking has just been published! Please check it out, like it and share it to help spread the word so that people will understand how porn fuels trafficking and is otherwise linked to it, and so that they will also know that if they are against sex trafficking, then they MUST also take a stand against pornography! Thanks!

[Porn Harms Research] — The Slave and the Porn Star: Sexual Trafficking and Pornography


In the past decade, there has been an explosion of interest in human trafficking. Eliminating human trafficking has become a foreign and domestic policy goal for many countries, including the United States. Following the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress, and Punish Trafficking in Persons, also in 2000, focus on the issue developed further. Human trafficking is now the topic of numerous articles, conferences, and studies, with many different aspects of trafficking being investigated. However, one aspect of human trafficking gets little attention—namely, the connection between pornography and trafficking (particularly sex trafficking).

This article argues that there are a number of links between pornography and sex trafficking and that curbing pornography can reduce sex trafficking. The first two sections describe the links between pornography and sex trafficking. The third section makes the case that legislators and prosecutors should give greater consideration to the relationship between pornography and sex trafficking as they determine budgetary and law enforcement priorities and as they make recommendations for how to address this link at the federal level.



P.S. Please note that we are sharing this article because of the value of the findings of the study, but we don’t agree with all of the recommendations, especially the cited legal approach. Thanks.
