Should internet users “opt in” to access porn? – NEW RADIO INTERVIEW WITH PORNLAND AUTHOR GAIL DINES

20130809-135759.jpg

RADIO INTERVIEW: The UK now makes Internet users opt in if they want porn. Anti-porn activist Gail Dines explains how this works! She also explains why it’s a great approach! Go Gail! Go team! 🙂

[CBC] — David Cameron has introduced measures to require British citizens to opt in to view pornography, and some want Canada to follow suit.

Anti-porn advocate Gail Dines joins us to explain what is going on and why she supports it. Gigaom writer David Meyer counters that the measures won’t work, and are essentially an attack on our privacy.

FBI announces 150 arrests have been made in a child prostitution crackdown that rescued 105 teens

20130803-145007.jpg

105 children 13-17 have recently been rescued in sextrafficking ring bust. This undercover operation is the biggest one to date! Check out the details below, and remember, pornography — especially “teen porn” — glorifies, legitimizes and promotes child prostitution, human trafficking and child sexual abuse, so if someone is against those horrific abuses then they must also be anti-porn!

[CNN] — In what it called its largest crackdown to date on child prostitution, the FBI announced Monday that a nationwide operation over the weekend resulted in 150 arrests, with 105 children rescued.

Authorities said the operation, which took investigators to race tracks and truck stops, also targeted the use of social media sites for child prostitution activity.

Overall, the three-day undercover roundup Operation Cross Country took place in 76 cities and involved 230 law enforcement units, according to the FBI.

“Child prostitution remains a persistent threat to children across America,” said Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division. “This operation serves as a reminder that these abhorrent crimes can happen anywhere and that the FBI remains committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and holding the criminals who profit from this exploitation accountable.”

He said at a news conference that a prime environment for child prostitution is major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, where authorities had “multiple recovery of children” in the past.

The operation was the largest sweep to date in the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative, according to Hosko.

It included 28 searches with 129 seizures of cash, drugs, vehicles and firearms, he said, and those arrested face a variety of charges, including pimping.
The ages of children rescued in this, the seventh iteration of Operation Cross Country ranged from 13 to 17, Hosko said.

He credited the increased success of the latest operation in part to an expansion of the probe to websites such as backpage.com, which he called a forum “where pimps and exploiters gather.”

There are no ‘happy hookers’: In US sex trafficking is complex, brainwashes victims

20130725-152820.jpg

READ this powerful and very moving article about how pimps manipulate and abuse their victims, which is explained by an ex-pimp!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please remember that pornography fuels prostitution and sex trafficking, so it you’re against those horrific abuses, you need to also be anti-porn! Also remember, the idea of “happy hookers” is a HUGE MYTH!

VICTIMIZED BY SHREWD COERCION: (article excerpt)

“You’re being manipulated from the beginning,” says Douglas. “The pimps know exactly what they’re doing. It’s part of the psychological and emotional manipulation. Right when you start feeling like you need to get out of the life and go, they do something that keeps you hooked in.”

Aside from the promise of affection, coercion tactics including sleep and food deprivation, forced drug use, and physical and mental abuse. Through various means, traffickers “brainwash” their victims.

When explaining why someone might defend or refuse to leave their pimp, Douglas says the closest phenomenon she can compare such a mental state to is the diagnosis of Stockholm Syndrome. This is a psychological condition likened to post traumatic stress disorder in which victims come to identify with their captors and abusers.

“I’ve always related the experience to that of [kidnapping victim] Elizabeth Smart,” Douglas says. Smart was abducted by a couple as a young girl, but remained with them for years, despite enduring abuse, even though she likely had opportunities to escape.

“I try to make them understand through her story. She was kidnapped, raped, [‘married’] by her captor, and basically created a family with him. She was free to move about and was not looking for help. The help found her. I think she had Stockholm Syndrome and I think that’s what happened in this New York trial,” she said of the more recent case.

Douglas, who will be featured in Tricked, a feature length documentary about sex trafficking set to be released this fall, has survived the psychological abuse of her ordeal. Yet, women who are not able to break free of the mental bondage of sex trafficking might not fare as well without the support of more supportive laws.

Also other anti-porn measures to be enacted as well! Check out the highlights and details below, and please LIKE, COMMENT and SHARE to help spread this AMAZING news! Thanks! 🙂

Note: Now we really hope that all other countries in the world will follow this powerful example of doing the right thing on behalf of women, children, and all of society! 🙂

HIGHLIGHTS:

Automatic web filters for new customers, and opt in for existing accounts by 2014.
Filters fitted to all new mobile phones.
Ban on adult content for public wi-fi.
New offence of possession of porn simulating rape.
New powers for watchdogs to access heavily encrypted sites.

———————-
[Daily Mail] – Pornography depicting rape will be outlawed as part of a government crackdown on web filth.

David Cameron today unveiled a raft of reforms to shield children from ‘poisonous’ websites that are ‘corroding childhood’.

In a victory for the Daily Mail, the Prime Minister announced every householder connected to the internet will have their access to online porn blocked unless they ask to receive it.

By the end of next year, all 19million UK homes currently connected to the net will be contacted by service providers and told they must say whether family-friendly filters that block all porn sites should be switched on or off.

From the end of this year, all new customers setting up a broadband account or switching provider will have the filters automatically switched on unless they opt to disable them to allow sites with ‘adult content’.

‘The Daily Mail has campaigned hard to make internet search engine filters “default on”. Today they can declare that campaign a success,’ Mr Cameron said.

‘We are taking action to help clean up the internet and protect a generation of children from often extreme online pornography.’

Other measures announced by Mr Cameron today included adult content filters on all new mobile phones, a bar on accessing adult content through public wi-fi and calling in Ofcom to regulate industry progress.

Internet giants such as Google were told they have a ‘moral duty’ to do more to stop child abuse images being accessed.

Pornography involving simulated rape will be banned both online and offline, and online videos will be subject to the same rules as those sold in sex shops.

There will be stronger powers for watchdogs to investigate the ‘hidden internet’ – heavily encrypted forums and pages that allow abusers to cover their tracks.

There has been growing alarm at evidence that a third of children have accessed online pornography by the time they reach ten.

Six in ten parents now say they are worried or very worried about their sons and daughters seeing violent and sexual material on the web.

In his landmark speech at the NSPCC, Mr Cameron said action is more urgent than ever because web access has ‘changed profoundly’ in recent years.

‘Not long ago, access to the internet was mainly restricted to the PC in the corner of the living room, with a beeping dial-up modem, downstairs in the house where parents could keep an eye on things,’ he said.

Today, there is material freely available that is a ‘direct danger to our children’.

The Prime Minister added: ‘I’m not making this speech because I want to moralise or scaremonger, but because I feel profoundly as a politician, and as a father, that the time for action has come. This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence.’

Mr Cameron announced that in future deciding about family-friendly filters will be a required part of the set-up process for installing an internet connection.

When existing web users are contacted, family-friendly filters will be pre-selected.

Only an adult will be able to change the filter settings and the account holder will receive a confirmation email. Some ISPs are offering text alerts, in case children hack into the account.

Any adult ignoring the alerts will have filters installed automatically.

‘By the end of this year, when someone sets up a new broadband account the settings to install family-friendly filters will be automatically selected. If you just click “next” or “enter”, then the filters are automatically on,’ Mr Cameron said.

‘And, in a really big step forward, all the ISPs have rewired their technology so that once your filters are installed, they will cover any device connected to your home internet account.

‘No more hassle of downloading filters for every device, just one click protection. One click to protect your whole home and keep your children safe.

‘Once those filters are installed, it should not be the case that technically literate children can just flick the filters off at the click of a mouse without anyone knowing.

‘So we have agreed with industry that those filters can only be changed by the account holder, who has to be an adult. So an adult has to be engaged in the decisions.

Former Pornographer Dave Pounder exposes truth: male porn actors use Viagra, and porn actresses are damaged

20130719-160904.jpg

In a new interview, former pornographer and porn actor Dave Mech (aka “Dave Pounder”) admits:

1) Male actors use Viagra
2) Women in porn are emotionally damaged.

So… 1) if porn-using guys are comparing themselves to studly “long-lasting” men they see in porn, they shouldn’t, because they are certainly not seeing a normal, healthy, drug-free sexual “performance”. And 2) we can conclude from this interview that virtually no emotionally and mentally healthy women actually enter and stay in porn, and the women that DO enter and stay in porn often LIE — to make it seem like they’re fine, healthy, never sexually or emotionally abused, and are now “empowered”, when in fact they’re not.

Sad but true! Read the details in these excerpts from the Psychology Today interview with Dave:

(Note: some people complain that we’re “biased” because we’re anti-porn, so they can’t take our information or sources seriously. Well this source — Dave — is still very pro-porn, so there goes that argument in regards to trying to discredit his testimony!)

DAVE: … And yes, I always had Viagra on hand for the extra assistance needed to perform as the scenes became more technical to shoot. Today, virtually all male performers use some form of ED [erectile dysfunction] drugs to aid in their performance.

INTERVIEWER: Did you ever have a serious relationship with a woman while you were performing as a porn actor? If yes, how did your partner react to your career choice? If not, do you think that your career choice hindered your ability to find a partner?

DAVE: I don’t think it is possible to have a serious relationship with someone while being involved in an acting capacity in the adult media industry. I formed some close friendships with some of the girls and hung out with them from time to time, but I never tried to have a serious relationship with them. This had nothing to do with the fact they were doing porn, but more so to do with the fact that they were crazy. If I would have met a bright, educated, cute, mentally-stable girl who happened to do porn, I certainly would have dated her. I just never found one.

INTERVIEWER: Could you offer a broad description of the typical personality profiles of male and female porn actors?

DAVE: The female actresses, in my opinion, are all damaged (e.g., histories of sexual or emotional abuse). I know it sounds bad to say that, but that has been my experience after spending over a decade in the industry. I have yet to meet a non-damaged (i.e., no past history of sexual or emotional abuse or trauma) professional (e.g., attorney, doctor, professor) female who left her job to make adult videos. With men, however, there are two different types of guys. The first type is the guy with nothing to lose. He works a minimum wage job, has no assets, and jumps at the opportunity to do porn, assuming it is somehow presented to him. After all, most attractive women would never have sex with these guys, so it’s a golden opportunity for them. The other guy is the semi-retired professional who really doesn’t need to work anymore, so he typically starts his own business and shoots himself in most of the scenes in a way that doesn’t show his face. This allows him to maintain his vanilla (mainstream) friendships while still having sex with attractive women for fun. This is what gave rise to the POV [point of view] method of shooting [As explained to me — interviewer — by Dave, the man receiving a sex act holds the camera as though the lens were his eyes. His face is never shown. I learned something new!]

INTERVIEWER: What are your thoughts on the “damaged good” hypothesis when it comes to female porn actresses?

DAVE: It is very true, unfortunately; and it makes sense from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The cost of having sex for women is much higher compared to men, so it doesn’t make much sense for a woman to seek out a career where she is having low-investment sex with a variety of males, especially of low social status and resources. Think of the corresponding scenario for men. We win from an evolutionary psychology standpoint when we are able to have sex and procreate with a variety of fertile women. Hardcore porn is much more closely aligned with male sexuality.

INTERVIEWER: In one of my recent Psychology Today articles (see here), I discussed a published paper that investigated the “damaged goods” hypothesis. The conclusions of the study do not seem to support your contention.

DAVE: It’s true as my experience goes. Looking at your link, it doesn’t mention prior sexual assault or emotional abuse growing up, which is my definition of damaged goods. Also, questionnaires are limited compared to behavioral research. I interviewed this girl for my documentary and asked her on camera if she had a past history of sexual or emotional abuse, and she said “no”. However, she had revealed to me in the past that she did. When I asked her why she lied, she said “people don’t need to know that.” Many people feel the same way when answering questionnaires.

FULL INTERVIEW:http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/homo-consumericus/201307/chat-author-and-former-pornographer-dave-pounder

———-

So yes, folks, it’s true! As many people who have been in porn will tell you, (the ones who are willing to now be honest), lying about their past and their true feelings and reality was not only the norm for them in porn, but a necessary part of their “profession” to “maintain the fantasy.” (Authenticity and truth in porn is bad for “business”!)

GREAT NEWS! The government just won the legal case requiring the porn industry to prove that all workers are over 18 years old! The pornography industry brought the case against the government because they felt it was too much of a “burden” on their “free speech” rights to have to ensure that underage exploitation wasn’t occurring by documenting the age and identity of everyone that was being photographed in the nude by them, or being filmed having sex. (“Sex” that is almost always unsafe, and often full of cruelty, abuse and degradation.) Thankfully the judge in this case wisely disagreed with the pornographers and decided to hold them accountable!

Needless to say the porn industry is upset about this. @MarkKernes of Adult Video News just tweeted:

“@markkernes: 2257-The good news: No more warrantless searches without probable cause. The bad news: We still have to prove we aren’t child pornographers.”

We actually think that pornographers having to prove that they aren’t sexually exploiting children is perfectly reasonable. What about you? Do you agree?

Check out the details of this case and this anti-porn victory below in a press release by Stop Porn Culture:

JUDGE FINDS AGAINST PORN INDUSTRY IN FREE SPEECH COALITION V. HOLDER

The Free Speech Coalition, the lobbying arm of the porn industry, suffered a major blow today in their challenge to the constitutionality of 18 USC 2257, which requires them to keep age verification records that porn performers are 18 or above. Judge Michael Baylson, a federal judge serving on senior status for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania found in favor of the government and ruled 2257 to be constitutional under the First and Fourth Amendment.

Dr. Gail Dines, an expert witness for the Department of Justice, argued that 2257 was vital for protecting children from being sexually exploited by the porn industry. Because “Teen Porn” is one of the top porn search terms in the world (500,000 searches daily), one of the largest porn genres on the internet, and the female performers in this genre look especially youthful, Dr. Dines argued that 2257 is one of the key ways to prevent the porn industry from using minors as a way to build a consumer base for young looking female performers.

What Serial Killers and Murderers think about Pornography

20130716-162934.jpg

Check out this informative article on what serial killers think of pornography and their connections to it! Very revealing! (From the site of Pornography Harms – @Porn_Harms)

    The following is a summary of direct quotes or information about various convicted serial killers from the past.

    – Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer of Wisconsin, speaking of his routine before hunting for a victim said, “Just…using pictures of past victims…the pornography videos, the magazines…” Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17 boys and men.

    – Ted Bundy, convicted rapist and mutilation murderer of Washington, said that hard-core pornography had a “crystallizing effect” on his violent tendencies and his acting out during the 1970s.

    – Arthur Gary Bishop from Utah, executed for raping and murdering five boys in the 1980s, said pornography’s “effect on me was devastating.”

    – Andrei Chikatilo, a Russian serial killer, murdered at least 53 women and children. ”…with pictures of naked women in his prison cell, he blamed pornography as the cause of this troubles.”

    – Wisconsin resident Ed Gein, the first serial killer, aka The Butcher of Plainfield, and inspiration for movies such as Psycho, Maniac, and The Silence of the Lambs ”accumulated a library of anatomy books, porn magazines, horror and adventure novel…” in the 1950s.

    – John Wayne Gacy‘s wife filed for divorce in 1976 because “Gacy’s moods had become erratic, and [she] had found Gacy’s pornographic magazine collection which was all centered around young boys.” Gacy killed at least 33 young men and boys in Chicago, Illinois.

    – The nickname BTK (bind, torture, kill) was given to Dennis Rader, a Kansas native, who killed 10 people. “He kept meticulous records of his fantasies and crimes in what he called his ‘mother lode’ collection of pornography.”

    – David Berkowitz killed over a dozen people in New York. He joined a cult and was introduced to “drug use, sadistic pornography and violent crime.” The cult also created and distributed child pornography.

    – Richard Ramirez was exposed to explicit pictures of his cousin “raping Vietnamese women and severing the heads of Vietcong soldiers.” He in turn killed at least 13 people in California.

    – Edmund Kemper, a California serial killer and necrophile known as the Co-ed Killer, used pornography and detective magazines for erotic stimulation; he picked up women who were hitch-hiking, then killed, and raped them post-mortem.

    – Ottis Toole from Florida became obsessed with gay pornography. He “committed his first murder at the age of 14.” During his killing spree, accompanied by Henry Lee Lucas, he killed 108 people.

    – The Grim Sleeper, Lonnie Franklin Jr., “had a penchant for prostitutes and pornography.” A resident of LA, he would pick up prostitutes, take pornographic pictures of his victims, then strangle them to death. His killing spree included 11 murders.

    – In the murder case of Tia Sharp, a 12-year-old girl from the UK, the judge declared to murderer Stuart Hazell, “the records of your internet searching on your mobile phone make abundantly clear that you were looking out for pornographic pictures of pre-teen girls.”

    – In 2013, on the day Mark Bridger, a UK native, abducted April Jones, he “viewed online photographs of a young girl and a pornographic cartoon depicting…rape.”

    – The use of pornography likely will not result in the casual viewer to commit violent acts; in the cases cited above, their behaviors included pornography use. I believe pornography can have serious and lasting affects on behavior.
