This poster notes that the average age of entry into #prostitution is 12-14 and that INCEST is linked to this — in a VERY significant way. (65-90% of prostituted people being victims of it!) Please note that this horrifying statistic would also apply to performers in the PORN INDUSTRY, as pornography is merely FILMED PROSTITUTION. (1. Money is paid to performers for them to have sex. 2. A large number of porn performers also engage in “standard” prostitution with their “fans.”)

It’s also important to keep in mind that if there are 100,000 to 3 million adolescents involved in prostitution annually in the Untied States, that this means that there are minimally tens of thousands of MEN who are PAYING FOR SEX with these teens.

NOTE: This figure is probably more like HUNDREDS of thousands of men, or millions, as porn continues to fuel the desire of men to act out what they see in all of the massive amounts of “teen porn” that they masturbate to, which is not only the most popular type of pornography, but is TWICE AS POPULAR than any other type of pornography! See our post of Feb. 20, 2013 for more info on this.

So… we ask that you always remember that 1) pornography fuels prostitution — including with (if not mostly with) young teens, and 2) without the DEMAND BY MEN for prostituted and formerly sexually abused children, teens, and adults, (the vast majority of whom are female), that prostitution would almost completely cease to exist.

This DEMAND is best countered through a number of a different methods, including the EDUCATION that we work on here and elsewhere. (To learn about other methods, please visit the excellent website DemandForum.net)

The Not For Sale Media Project is a mobilization of feminist media makers and grassroots activists that are creatively challenging the mass media’s normalization of prostitution, pornography, and other forms of sexual abuse through the creation and distribution of alternative media. We are creating alternative forms of media that encourage individuals and communities to think more critically about the buying and selling of women’s bodies; the commodification of sex and sexuality; impacts on individuals and groups of people; and alternative visions of sex and sexuality free of power abuse, violence, and hierarchy.

The Not For Sale Media Project is currently embarking on the creation of posters that raise awareness on issues of prostitution, pornography, and trafficking. The posters are 8.5″ x 14″ or 11″ x 17″ in size and are being utilized for public and community education. View some of the posters below. We encourage you to download, print, and circulate them in your own community.

Former porn star and CSUN student Jennie Ketcham shares her story

20130330-082250.jpg

Here’s an article with ex-porn star Jennie Ketcham sharing the harsh truth of the porn industry. (Jennie is @BecomingJennie at Twitter.)

We love Jennie because she really knows what she’s talking about and she always just tells it like it is! And on top of that she’s a wonderful person who is setting a great example of someone who has left porn and who has made a positive transition to a healthier life. Go Jennie! 🙂

[Sundial] — Jennie Ketcham, former porn star and current CSUN psychology major, dispelled myths about the porn industry providing actors an endlessly glamorous lifestyle during the lecture “Porn’s Glass Ceiling: An Illusionary Wage Gap,” in the USU Tuesday.

After a lucrative eight year run as an award-winning porn actress, Kecham gave up drugs and alcohol and realized she could not continue the job while sober.

“I thought it would validate me, so I did nude modeling, the gateway drug to hard core porn. I didn’t realize that validation can come from inside,” said Ketcham, author of “I Am Jennie.” “Nothing about what I did gave me skills to live in the real world.”

Ketcham said “average females” are porn stars that are not in high demand. They are very easily replaceable and their careers often do not last longer than a year. She estimated that they can make about $88,000 a year doing two scenes a week or 162 a year. The “average male,” whose careers have more longevity at an average of five years, can make comparable income but must perform about four scenes a week.

“Exceptional females,” or those in very high demand, can make their careers last closer to 10 years at $249,600 a year, doing about four a week or 192 a year. “Exceptional males,” who can make their careers last the longest at 15 years, will make slightly more, about $268,800 a year, but have to perform almost every day at about 336 scenes a year.

Exact numbers are hard to find because of how closed off the industry tries to be, but estimates were based off figures she came across when working as a director, she said.

“Porn is the greatest myth of the entertainment business because no one knows about it,” Ketcham said. “I knew if I spoke out I would be blacklisted and it would take away that temptation, I couldn’t go back – it’s like erasing your drug dealer’s phone number.”

At high rates and a fast turn around, Ketcham said the glass ceiling for the porn industry is that performers have to give up more to make more, all together making it an unsustainable career.

“I have a friend that has been in the business for seven years and just did her first anal scene for $10,000,” Ketcham said.

“Tomorrow it will go back to the regular rate of $1,300 and now that people expect it, they want you to do it now.”

Whatever reasons people have for getting into the industry, decisions start with the discrepancy between who they really are and who they ideally want to be, Ketcham said. “When I was young I didn’t know where I fit in. I didn’t know my role in family or my family’s role in society (and) I felt muddled and confused,” she said.

Here’s an informative article on how porn is affecting boys and young men and conditioning them to be rapists and abusers. ~ It also has some very good advice about how parents can help prevent this. Check it out!

[Metro World News] — Jared Watkins, a 23-year-old in Washington, DC, doesn’t have any illusions about men’s sexuality: “Most men my age watch porn. We’re the first generation that grew up with porn so easily available to us. Pornography is starting to get more violent, and we feel disgusted with ourselves for watching it, but many of us are confused about their disgust, because they think this is what real sex is like.”

Indeed, today’s boys watch porn growing up – and a lot of it. According to new surveys, the average boy now starts viewing porn at age 11 – even boys as young as seven now watch it. What they see is often hardcore.

“Sexual curiosity is healthy, but we’re raising our boys on violent porn,” says Carleton Hendrick, a Harvard-educated psychotherapist in Massachusetts who has treated hundreds of teenagers. “Thanks to the internet, porn is now boys’ primary sex educator. They watch it on their computers, on their phones, their tablets and their friends’ computers. With the average viewing time per week being two hours, it means they see thousands of images that tell them that cruel, violent sexual acts against girls are permissible, even desired by girls. It’s having staggering consequences on our boys, and by implication on our girls.”

Todd Spaulding, clinical director at the Oxbow Academy in rural Utah, treats such boys. “Ten boys can look at porn, and you can’t predict whether they’ll become abusers,” he explains. “But the reality is that they can watch anything online, including sadistic and cruel sex. This sex is objectification and dehumanization of girls. Their attitude becomes, ‘You’re an object and therefore I can do whatever I want to you’.”

Oxbow treats 40 boys at the time in its residential program; it’s not even a drop in the bucket, as Spaulding acknowledges. That’s where Neil Irvin comes in. As executive director of the group Men Can Stop Rape, Irvin teaches young boys across the United States – and now abroad – about healthy sexuality.

“I’m a math and history teacher by training,” he says. “Teaching sexuality is as important! We show boys what can happen to them if they use drugs or pornography. We help them understand healthy sexuality and give them male role models they can talk to when they meet a girl they’re attracted to.”

Without programs like Irvin’s, do we risk raising sexual predators, and women willing to accept violence? Candida Royalle, a pioneer of the feminist ‘by-and-for-women’ porn genre, believes the risk is exaggerated: “While some standard porn can be described as sexist and at times degrading, it’s not particularly violent. And while it may model sexual behavior that’s not sensitive to what women want, for the most part it’s not promoting violence.”

But, observes Hendrick, girls are growing up with the idea that they have to subject themselves to boys’ porn-style desires: “Many girls even go on porn sites to see what boys really want, even though it hurts. Girls are outperforming boys academically and succeeding at every other level, but in order to please boys they sexually degrade themselves.”

Boys and sex: Preventing rape

Two million boys have attended Men Can Stop Rape’s school program, the Men of Strength club (MOST). “We send 100 selected boys invitations saying, ‘You’ve been nominated as a leader of your school’,” explains Neil Irvin. “Then the boys are invited to a meeting with pizza and a cool movie.” MOST’s leaders then tell them that not everyone will be invited to join. “That makes them want to be selected,” explains Irvin. “The members get special access to things. That makes the program cool.”

Keep red flags down: How to prevent your son from developing an unhealthy porn habit:

1. Talk with your child about sex very early. Teach him about good touching, bad touching, secret touching.
2. Set boundaries. The more internet access you give your kids, the more they’ll access harmful content.
3. If he exceeds his internet privileges, confiscate his computer or iPad. Don’t try to be his friend, even if being strict results in his saying he’ll punch a hole in the wall.
4. If your son watches porn, talk about it. Don’t vilify his attraction to girls, or even to other boys, but explain that it’s not healthy to keep viewing such websites. It will be an uncomfortable conversation, but it has to be!
5. If your son develops a pornography habit, ask why he feels excited about porn. Don’t take “I don’t know” for an answer. Explain that sexual attraction is a good thing, and why you don’t want him to get it through watching porn.

This provocative poster shows how women in pornography are portrayed as NON-humans — merely DOLLS to be used for sex:

“I don’t feel pain. I don’t have dreams. My sole purpose is for others to use me for their enjoyment. I am not a woman.”

STOP PORNOGRAPHY USE
Our Voices Matter – http://www.voicesmatter.org

——————————–

We think it gets to the heart of the matter of what’s really wrong with pornography, which is the toxic message of MISOGYNY and DEHUMANIZATION that is being programmed into the hearts and minds of countless millions of boys and men worldwide. What do YOU think. Do you agree?

Artist Suzzan Blac’s Powerful True Story of Being Sex Trafficked — “The Divine Tragedy”

She will check here and at our site for comments and will respond, so please share your thoughts. Thanks! 🙂

WARNING!! EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING CONTENT OF A SEXUAL AND VIOLENT NATURE IN THE STORY BELOW AND ESPECIALLY AT THE LINK!! PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION AND NOT IF YOU ARE EASILY UPSET BY EXTREME CRUELTY, MISOGYNY AND VIOLENCE!

——————–

THE DIVINE TRAGEDY
– by Artist, Author, and Advocate Suzzan Blac
– An excerpt from Suzzan’s book, “The Rebirth of Suzzan Blac”

Up until this time; I thought I knew Evil.

But, I had only ever tasted it.

Now, it was being force fed to me by a malevolence …that had no right to be of this world.

London – 1976

I was so excited on the morning of my interview.

I was to meet Mr. Y at an exclusive hotel in the city center at 2 pm. I washed my hair, fixed my face, painted my nails and put on my prettiest dress.

I was so nervous as I walked into the hotel lobby, but I needn’t have been, because Mr. Y was the most charming of men who put me to ease straight away.

After a couple of drinks and a long chat, he handed me a contract and a consent form, for one of my parents to fill in and sign, as I was only sixteen and still a minor; which served to validate my belief that everything was above board and bona fide.

We discussed the traveling arrangements for the following week, and then said our goodbyes on a hand shake.

I almost skipped the whole way back to the bus stop. I was on cloud nine and once in my seat, I went over the things that he had said to me.

He told me that I had the most symmetrical face that he had ever seen, that I was incredibly photogenic and that he had ‘big’ plans for me.

I had never been so thrilled in my life. I went straight to mother’s house to ask her to sign the consent form. She promptly did, no questions asked, we said our goodbyes and she wished me a good time in London.

The following week I met Mr. Y at New Street railway station. I was besides myself with excitement, especially as I had never been to London before. I felt so confident and sophisticated as Mr. Y complimented me and told me about all the jobs he would line up for me in London and on the continent.

We arrived at Euston station late afternoon. Mr. Y flagged down a black cab and told me that he had a surprise for me.

I was amazed as I took in some of the famous sights during the ride, and even more so when he took me into an exclusive shop to pick out an outfit. He told me that he wanted me to look really special as we were to meet his partner for dinner and drinks that evening.

I had never been so happy as I came out of the changing room wearing a sophisticated black dress, silk stockings and black heels. Mr. Y asked the shop assistant if I could wear them, and if she would kindly put my clothes into a carrier bag for me.

The next two hours were spent sight seeing and drinking coffee in a hotel bar. At 7 pm we walked into a beautiful restaurant to meet Mr. S, who was equally charming and courteous.

They both made me feel like I was somebody. For the first time in my life I actually felt worthy and respected.

We drank, ate and discussed my promising future until around 11 pm. I was feeling rather light headed and tired as the three of us climbed into a cab. I naturally assumed that we would be going to some hotel, say our good nights and meet up the next morning for further discussions.

The cab came to a halt. Mr. Y paid the fare and we all climbed out of the vehicle, into a small, nondescript side street.

We continued to walk through endless back streets, but with each step, the surroundings seemed to get rougher and seedier. It all started to feel rather menacing, and I began to feel rather apprehensive. I knew that at this point, there was no turning back

Finally, we reached a large building that looked like it had once been a hotel. Many of its windows were boarded up and it was in a state of disrepair. As we entered the outer porch, I began to feel a strong sense of regret and forbodement.

Mr. Y unlocked the heavy front door and escorted me into a small bar area, in which a few shifty looking men sat drinking and talking.

They all stopped simultaneously to look at me as we entered.

I felt extremely uneasy and perturbed as Mr. Y told me to sit down. Mr. S brought some drinks over and gave one to me. “Just a nightcap for you, darlin,” he smiled.

As I finished my drink, Mr. Y turned to me and asked, “Would you mind coming to my room to sign some papers before you go to bed?”

Although alarm bells were frantically ringing inside my head, I said that I would; I felt at that point that I would have no choice anyway.

Mr. Y showed me where my room was on the way to his. He opened his door, and gestured for me to enter and sit on the single bed. I could see his briefcase and lots of paperwork on the dressing table. My eyes scanned the room as he took off his jacket, it looked like a basic, cheap hotel room except there was no TV and the window was boarded up.

Mr. Y looked me up and down, smiled and told me to take off my clothes.

My heartbeat dramatically increased so much so, that I could hear the blood pumping loudly in my ears, as the realization of what was happening hit me like a sledge hammer and my body froze.

I was so scared that I did what I was told.
