Your No is Her Hope – UnBound – ANTI-PORN & ANTI-SEX TRAFFICKING CAMPAIGN & PETITION!

20130930-135122.jpg

PLEASE SUPPORT! 1) A campaign that shows how pornography fuels sex trafficking, and 2) a PETITION to the U.S. government to keep children porn-free! These are VERY IMPORTANT! Please check out the details and video below, and SIGN THE PETITION! Thanks! 🙂

FROM UNBOUNDNOW.ORG:

Can a single word help bring sex trafficking to its knees? We believe it can.

Many women and children who are sexually exploited are being used for the production of pornography and suffer extreme abuse. In fact, pornography is the primary gateway for the purchase of millions of innocent humans used for commercial sex.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Whether you’ve looked at pornography or not – your no is her hope.

When you say no to pornography, you say no to sex trafficking and save the lives of innocent people. When you influence those around you to say no to pornography, you shape the culture and defend those who cannot defend themselves.

Inspired by recent actions in the U.K., UnBound is urging the U.S. government to tighten restrictions on internet pornography. Our lawyers have drafted a petition asking the federal government to put laws into place requiring internet providers to automatically block pornographic websites. If someone wants to view sites with adult content, they call their internet service provider and request the block be removed. This new law would drastically reduce the ease in which pornography is readily available.

The fact that these victims are filmed or photographed does not change the fact that it is a violent crime. Because a third party is recruiting someone for the purpose of sexual exploitation and making a profit, many adult pornography materials and all child pornography materials fit the legal definition of human trafficking.

It also feeds the demand for human trafficking. When the desire for porn increases, the demand for more or different or harder kinds or pornography increases. To produce such hard porn, trafficked men, women and children are used in its production. Men who end up in brothels often began their sexual addictions with porn.

EX “LAD’S MAG” EDITOR: Experiment that convinced me online porn is the most pernicious threat

20130929-134614.jpg

PLEASE READ this POWERFUL article by a former lads’ mag editor who’s now speaking out about the harms of porn! ~~~~~ New father Martin Daubney shares the harsh truth that he has now finally confronted, after years of denying that porn was harmful. (While he was profiting from the softcore pornographic content in his “men’s magazine.”)

Daubney is featured in the first of a series of weekly UK documentaries about the harms of porn, that is starting on Monday night at 10 pm on Channel 4 in the UK. (It will be posted on their Channel 4 On Demand website for 30 days, after it first airs.) So please watch “Porn on the Brain” it if you’re in the UK, and let us know what you think! Thanks! 🙂

[DAILY MAIL] — The moment I knew internet pornography had cast its dark shadow over the lives of millions of ordinary British teenagers will live with me for ever.

I was sitting in the smart drama hall of a specialist sports college in the North of England with a fantastic reputation.

Before me were a group of 20 boys and girls, aged 13-14. Largely white, working class children, they were well turned-out, polite, giggly and shy.

As the presenter of a Channel 4 documentary called Porn On The Brain, airing next Monday at 10pm, I’d been invited to sit in on a forward-thinking class led by sex education consultant Jonny Hunt, who is regularly asked into schools to discuss sex and relationships. To establish what these kids knew about sex – including pornography – he had asked the children to write an A-Z list of the sexual terms they knew, no matter how extreme.

Most of these children had just hit puberty and some were clearly still children: wide-eyed, nervous, with high-pitched voices.

Some of the girls were beginning their first forays into make-up. Several wore braces on their teeth.

Everybody was smartly turned out in school uniform, and the most anti-authority statement in the room was a tie worn deliberately short. A One Direction pencil case lay on a desk. These were clearly good children, from good homes. So far, so very, very ordinary.
But when Jonny pinned their lists on the board, it turned out that the children’s extensive knowledge of porn terms was not only startling, it superseded that of every adult in the room – including the sex education consultant himself.

Martin was shocked by what the teenagers said
‘Nugget, what’s that?’ asked Jonny.

‘A nugget is a girl who has no arms or legs and has sex in a porno movie,’ chortled one young, pimply boy, to an outburst of embarrassed laughter from some, and outright revulsion from others.

The adults in attendance were incredulous at the thought that not only did this kind of porn exist, but that a 14-year-old boy may have actually watched it.

But the more mundane answers were just as shocking. For example, the first word every single boy and girl in the group put on their list was ‘anal’.

When questioned, they had all – every child in a class of 20 – seen sodomy acted out in porn videos. I was stunned they even knew about it – I certainly hadn’t heard of it at that age – let alone had watched it and as a result may even have wanted to try it.

One 15-year-old girl said, ‘Boys expect porn sex in real life’. And one boy – to choruses of approval – spoke of his revulsion for pubic hair, which he called a ‘gorilla’.

When Jonny pointed out that pubic hair was normal in real life, the boys scoffed, but some of the girls were angry that the boys’ template of what to expect from real girls had clearly already been set by porn.

By the end of the hour-long class – and three others that followed with other children – I was profoundly saddened by what I had witnessed. While teenage boys will always be fascinated by, and curious about, sex, what’s now considered ‘normal’ by under-18s is an entirely distorted view of intercourse and the way relationships should be conducted.

It seemed as if the children’s entire expectation of sex had been defined by what they see in online porn. The conversation was horrifying enough, yet there was worse to come.

In the playground, I interviewed a brave group of seven bright boys and girls aged 14-15 to ascertain in more detail what online porn they had witnessed.

‘Nugget, what’s that?’ asked Jonny. ‘A nugget is a girl who has no arms or legs and has sex in a porno movie,’ chortled one young, pimply boy.

One boy calmly recalled watching a scene too graphic to describe in a family newspaper, but which had involved an animal.

‘You’re watching bestiality?’ I asked. ‘That’s illegal. Where are you getting this stuff from?’

‘Facebook,’ the boy said. ‘It just pops up whether you want it or not, sometimes via advertisements. You don’t have any control over it.’

A girl added, ‘On Facebook, you just scroll down and it’s there. If any of your friends like it, it comes up on your home page.’

THE HIV CRISIS IN THE PORN INDUSTRY – by PORNLAND author Gail Dines, co-founder of Stop Porn Culture

20130928-134502.jpg

NEW! Informative Gail Dines article on the recent porn industry HIV outbreak and the issue of mandatory condoms! Check it out! Gail shares with us some interesting politics of the porn industry players and how they are turning on one of their own ( a woman who is a self-described “feminist” pornographer) who has come out in favor of condom use being mandatory to protect performers.

[Counterpunch] — The porn industry, using its sophisticated, well-resourced public relations machine, sells itself as an avant garde, progressive, counter-cultural force out to empower us all with exciting images of an edgy, fun, creative sexuality. In reality, it is a multi-billion-dollar-a-year business that functions like all global industries, especially when it feels under siege. The recent HIV outbreak among porn actors and the subsequent negative publicity about how the business treats its performers has revealed how this industry goes into attack-dog mode by discrediting, defaming, and slandering those who blow the whistle on what goes on behind the scenes.

For years, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has been fighting for mandatory condom use on porn sets. The porn industry has mounted a wholesale attack on the foundation, accusing it of fear-mongering, exaggeration, and stigmatizing porn performers. Ironically, one of the AHF’s main critics, porn producer Tristan Taormino—who accused the organization of propagating “negative stereotypes about sex workers” and using “inaccurate information to scare the public” —is now herself a target of a porn industry smear campaign for announcing on CNN that she will no longer shoot condom-free scenes.

What a difference a year makes! In a Huffington Post article in October 2013, Tristan Taormino urged people to vote against Measure B, which made condoms mandatory, because it “will not make workers safer nor will it help stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).”

Accusing the AHF of trying to destroy the porn industry, Taormino argued that she was against Measure B because she wanted to “empower performers to make decisions about how they will protect themselves.” On September 20, 2013, just 11 months later, Taormino stated on her blog that she still wants to “empower performers to make decisions about all aspects of the work they do.” This time, though, empowering them means refusing to work with those who won’t use condoms. While all of this may seem very confusing to the average person not acquainted with the inner workings of the porn industry, it actually makes perfect sense given the events of the last month or so.

Last month porn performer Cameron Bay tested positive for HIV, and since then three other performers have come forward, making a total of four who have been diagnosed with acute HIV infection. At first the porn industry expressed sympathy, but now they are circling the wagons and sharpening their knives, going after the infected performers who took part in an AHF press conference on September 19. At that conference, Cameron Bay described how, in her last shoot before testing positive for HIV, her partner’s penis was bleeding, and even though he wasn’t wearing a condom, the filming continued. She described another shoot in which one of the actors she was working with was cut. Rather than stop shooting, the director went on to film an explicit scene.

In the press conference, Cameron’s partner, also a porn performer and one of the four who tested positive, blasted the industry for continuing to shoot scenes without condoms just one week after a performer tested positive. Hitting the nail on the head, he told the reporters that “Ultimately, it’s a business, and their main concern is money and not their performers.” Indeed. Rather than closing down all production and investing in the healthcare of their performers (AHF is paying for all the healthcare needs of the four performers because none of them has health insurance), the industry is busy pouring money into a PR crisis-management campaign.

NEW FILM ADDRESSING PORN HARMS – “Don Jon” (Opening TODAY) – The Real Don Jons: How Online Porn has Affected a Generation | EW.com

20130927-144319.jpg

NEW! Don Jon (@DonJonMovie) is opening today, a comedy on how pornography objectifies women and misleads users! Although the movie may use comedy to examine this important issue, apparently it still really makes some very serious points — especially about how porn harms relationships — so we hope you’ll all go see it and let us know what you think! (Unless you’re a recovering porn addict or someone especially sensitive to pornographic imagery, as the film is R-rated and does show the harsh truth of what a lot of porn is actually really like.) Thanks! 🙂 ~ Check out the details below!

[Entertainment Weekly] — In the R-rated comedy Don Jon, opening Sept. 27, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a twentysomething New Jersey gym rat and self-styled ladies’ man whose ability to maintain normal relationships with women is hampered by his obsession with online porn. While his girlfriend, played by Scarlett Johansson, swoons for the fantasies on display in Hollywood romantic comedies, Jon (Gordon-Levitt) wonders how the flesh-and-blood women he meets can ever measure up to the virtual vixens on his computer screen. If this sounds like pretty racy subject matter for a mainstream movie—well, it is. But Gordon-Levitt, who wrote and directed Don Jon, says he was interested in exploring how the media shapes our perceptions and expectations. “Pornography is a huge, huge part of our media culture,” he tells EW in this week’s cover story. “The message Don Jon is trying to bring to light—and make fun of—is reducing people, especially women, to nothing but sex objects.”

Unless you happened to take a strict vow of celibacy around 1991, you know that the Internet is, to a large extent, one massive porn delivery system. By one recent measure, 30 percent of all data transferred across the web is some form of pornography, and porn sites attract more unique visitors each month than Amazon, Twitter, and Netflix combined. What no one is quite sure about, though, is what effect this is having on us—and, in particular, on the generation of people reared in the Internet age. What kind of influence has growing up in an era of instantly accessible online porn had on men—and, for that matter, women—who are now in their 20s? Just how many real-life Don Jons out there are wrestling with the impacts of their porn use?

Gen-Xers and older Millennials can hazily recall those pre-Internet days when porn was still a titillating taboo, secreted away in the backs of magazine racks and curtained-off areas of video stores. “When I was a kid, the only way to see a naked woman was in Playboy or on HBO after midnight, or you’d watch Weekend at Bernie’s 2 and freeze-frame the shot when they pulled the bikini off,” says one 29-year-old who works in the film business. “Now while I’m driving I could pull up a hardcore pornographic video of three guys having sex with one girl and watch it immediately. That level of access is unbelievable.”

And, for most men, that instant gratification and the promise of never-ending novelty is nearly impossible to resist, especially if it’s all they’ve ever known. “For men, porn is kind of like video games — it’s an escape,” says “Jake,” a 25-year-old man from upstate New York. “There’s a scene in the trailer for Don Jon where Scarlett Johansson catches [Gordon-Levitt’s character] watching porn and I think, ‘You’ve got Scarlett Johansson in your bed, and you’re looking at porn?’ But guys do that. Porn is a way to retreat into a world where you are in control. It creates the impression that you are more in control of your sexuality than you actually are. So when you’re faced with a real woman, with real sex, with a real relationship, it can be very jarring.”

For those twentysomethings whose sex education was shaped primarily by Internet porn, it can come as a rude shock to find that the images of sexuality imprinted on their young minds are often at odds with what actual sex is like. “When I first started having sex, I tried to have sex like the guys in porn, because that was all I knew,” Jake admits. “I had a girl stop me and say, ‘You’re hurting me. I don’t like this. We’re going to stop.’ That was crushing. I thought I had to dominate her. I thought that’s what sex was.”

Actor Justin Long explored some of these ideas when he co-wrote the upcoming romantic comedy A Case of You, which features a character who chooses online porn over his girlfriend. “I’m probably of a different generation,” says Long, 35. “My introduction to anything like that was when I found a stack of Playboys from the ’60s and ’70s. But it’s so rampant now. Even on a less sexual level, I think the advent of all this technology has brought up a difficulty in interpersonal communication. It’s only going to get worse with people developing problems.”

TAKE ACTION: Call on the United Nations to listen to survivors and not jeopardize efforts to prevent sex trafficking!

20130926-145626.jpg

URGENT EMAIL REQUEST FROM Equality Now: Take Action!

“Society’s understanding of human trafficking and prostitution needs to change… Women are human beings, not commodities to be bought and sold.” – Alma, Philippines, survivor and activist

Equality Now and 97 anti-trafficking organizations worldwide, many of which are survivor-led, are deeply concerned with two United Nations (UN) backed reports that were released last year. These reports tell countries that in order to support efforts to reduce HIV/AIDS and to promote the human rights of people in prostitution, all aspects of the commercial sex industry should be decriminalized, including the exploitative and often violent practices of pimping, brothel-keeping and the purchase of sex. They also recommend a narrowing of the UN definition of trafficking. This would prevent many victims of trafficking from being recognized as such, and in turn, would jeopardize their ability to access support and justice, and reduce accountability for their traffickers. Survivor-led groups were not consulted in the drafting of the reports.

These recommendations contradict anti-trafficking efforts and policies that have been widely supported, largely ignore the experiences and views of survivors of prostitution and sex trafficking and jeopardize gender equality. While protecting people in prostitution from HIV/AIDS is imperative, undermining efforts to prevent sex trafficking and promote gender equality cannot be side effects.

Please join survivors, Equality Now and the coalition of 97 anti-trafficking organizations worldwide in urging UNAIDS, UNFPA and UNDP to clarify their position on the decriminalization of pimps, brothel owners and buyers, and to involve a more diverse range of groups working on the issue of prostitution and sex trafficking in the development of future policies and programs.

Pornography addiction leads to same brain activity as alcoholism or drug abuse, study shows

20130924-132415.jpg

A new study from Cambridge University UK says that porn addiction shows up in MRI scans of pornography users. Read the details below. And if you’re in the UK, check out the documentary “Porn on the Brain” that features this study on Channel 4 on Sept. 30th!

[The Independent] — People who are addicted to pornography show similar brain activity to alcoholics or drug addicts, a study has revealed.

MRI scans of test subjects who admitted to compulsive pornography use showed that the reward centres of the brain reacted to seeing explicit material in the same way as an alcoholic’s might on seeing a drinks advert.

The research by Cambridge University assessed the brain activity of 19 addictive pornography users against a control group of people who said they were not compulsive users.

Lead scientist Dr Valerie Voon, an honorary consultant neuropsychiatrist, told the Sunday Times: “We found greater activity in an area of the brain called the ventral striatum, which is a reward centre, involved in processing reward, motivation and pleasure.

“When an alcoholic sees an ad for a drink, their brain will light up in a certain way and they will be stimulated in a certain way. We are seeing this same kind of activity in users of pornography.”

The study is yet to be published, but will feature in a Channel 4 documentary called Porn on the Brain, which airs at 10pm on Monday 30 September.

Children blackmailed by paedophiles over online sex acts (And forced to make more pornography. Sometimes they commit suicide!)

20130923-133126.jpg

Some sick online pedophiles BLACKMAIL children to get them to continue to make porn for them. So tragic! 😦

[Channel 4] — Hundreds of British children are being blackmailed into performing sex acts or harming themselves via webcam, by paedophiles who threaten to send images of the victim to their family.

Teenagers and children as young as eight have been targeted and some driven to suicide by their abusers, said the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre.

Paedophiles gain their trust by pretending to be the same age as the children they are targeting, and then lure them into carrying out sex acts online or sending sexual images.

They use the footage or images to blackmail their victims, and force them to perform more sex acts – treating them as their “slaves”, Ceop said – by threatening to pass on images shared to the victims’ family and friends.

Seven young people have committed suicide as a result of being targeted, including 17-year-old Daniel Perry from Dunfermline in Fife. He died on 15 July after being tricked into thinking he was talking to an American girl online. Another seven young people seriously self-harmed, of whom six were from the UK.

In the past two years across 12 investigations, 424 children worldwide have been blackmailed in this way, of whom 184 were from the UK, Ceop said. Experts believe thousands of British children could have been targeted by abusers intending to trap victims.
