The creators of the ‘Sexy Baby’ documentary on porn’s harms to teens have now premiered the ‘Hot Girls Wanted’ documentary’ — about the exploitative world of teen amateur porn:

    “The disturbing world of amateur pornography has been laid bare by a new documentary called ‘Hot Girls Wanted,’ which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday.

    The insightful look at the world of pornography shows just how easy it is for teenagers, in particular, to get caught up in a sex trade that promises big bucks and fame.

    But in a revealing peek into the billion dollar industry, documentary filmmakers exposed how professionally produced films are being made to look like home movies. …

    It showed how Craigslist ads which promised free flights to Miami bring in a constant stream of would-be porn stars.
    During the film, Riley, a 23-year-old ‘agent’ hosts half a dozen young women eager to enter the industry at his Miami home.

    He says casually: ‘Every day, another girl turns 18.’

    But the brutal world of pornography only gives girls aged 18- to 21 a career span that typically lasts just three months, due to high turnover.

    Tressa, an 18-year-old girl featured in the film, admits she was attracted to porn as a way to escape her Texas hometown.”

——————–

Ouch. That’s a sad state of affairs. 😦

And by the way, if porn is so great and “empowering,” why is the career-span of these young women only three months?? Very telling…

“Sexy Baby” was a very good documentary and we’re looking forward to seeing and sharing this new effort by these excellent filmmakers who are doing such a great job exposing the harms of pornography. Go anti-porn team! 🙂

~ Here’s an excellent article on the “Hot Girls Wanted” film and another important documentary that just debuted at Sundance about epidemic rape on college campuses:

    “We did actually start this film by going to college campuses and talking to frat boys, to get some background research, and on our sort of checklist of things we wanted to film was this amateur porn world, because all these boys are watching this porn… and it is no mistake that their behavior is aggressive, and that there are all these rapes on college campuses, because this is where it’s starting. This is what they’re watching.”

Exactly! Thanks to the filmmakers for telling it like it is and helping to educate the masses!

Pornhub’s 2014 stats are in and unsurprisingly the news is not good. “Teen” remains the top search term globally. ~~

Other “lowlights” include:

1) Pornhub got 78.9 billion views in 2014, up from 63.2 billion in 2013.

2) 45% of Pornhub’s 2014 traffic came from mobile phones, compared to 44% from desktop computers, and 11% percent from tablets.

3) The top 20 2014 porn search terms also include “babysitter” (equivalent to “teen” in most cases), and the incest-focused terms “step mom” and “step sister.”

Ouch! 😦

If you’re up to learning more disturbing facts about the porn-watching habits of hundreds of millions of people around the world, (mostly men), many of whom are apparently watching porn in public spaces around all of us on phones and tablets (and likely laptops), check out the full article below.

http://betabeat.com/2015/01/the-u-s-loves-lesbian-porn-and-other-highlights-from-pornhubs-year-in-review-stats/

——————–

For the record, the “lesbian” porn that is being increasingly searched for and watched is not actually pornography made of real lesbians. Read the below article by our volunteer, ex porn performer Vanessa Belmond to learn more.

http://www.antipornography.org/my-story-of-lesbian-porn-harms-and-why-its-fake.html

Also it is just as harmful to the performers and others.

———-

To be clear, “lesbian” pornography is almost always two straight women pretending to have “lesbian sex” for the viewing pleasure of men, in a way that matches the delusional fantasies of men. It is just as problematic and sexist as heterosexual pornography. More info on this topic is at our page on it here:

http://www.antipornography.org/lesbian_porn_harms.html

If anyone knows of any other good references on this topic, please let us know, so we can add them to this page. Thanks!

———–

One other point to consider, regarding both “lesbian” and gay male pornography…

    “Whatever the gender of the participants, all pornography is an imitation of the male-female, conqueror-victim paradigm, and almost all of it actually portrays or implies enslaved women and master.” ~~ Gloria Steinem

Exactly! For more excellent quotes about the harms of pornography by Gloria Steinem, please check out the below page at our website:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Something CAN be done to counter this global catastrophe that is fueling epidemic sex trafficking and violence against women and children, but only if enough people step up to educate others and to fight pornography, or at least support the few hard-working anti-porn organizations we have by donating and volunteering.

Combating the global harms of pornography and sexual exploitation is a HUGE job, as clearly we’re up against many MILLIONS of people who support them. So we need an equally large army of people who are willing to work just as hard to eliminate pornography and sex trade use and harms as the number of people who use, support and profit from them. So please do your part. Your efforts and support are needed!

GOOD NEWS! The porn industry lost their court appeal regarding condom use, and the L.A. County law will be upheld. 🙂

    Making adult-film performers wear condoms during porn production does not violate freedom of expression but instead protects public health and workers on set, a federal appeals court concluded Monday morning.

    The 30-page ruling largely discounted what had long been an argument by the adult-film industry: That Measure B, a voter-approved law that requires condoms be used on all porn shoots in Los Angeles County, compromises an actor’s artistic expression and ruins the fantasy aspect of pornography.

———-

Yay team! 🙂 Read more details in the article below:

http://www.dailynews.com/social-affairs/20141215/porn-condom-law-doesnt-violate-freedom-of-artistic-expression-judges-say

Here is more info and background on this issue:

http://thinkprogress.org/health/2014/12/16/3604306/condoms-porn-ninth-circuit/

Another important development along these lines is the latest report from the California Department of Public Health:

Occupational HIV Transmission in the Adult Entertainment Film Industry

    What should be done in light of this investigation?

    • Correct and consistent use of condoms is known to reduce the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Adult entertainment film actors should use condoms, and film producers should require on-set condom use by actors. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) has determined that employers are required to furnish and ensure the use of condoms in the production of adult films at no cost to the actors.

Yay!

GOOD NEWS! The UK porn business is declining due to regulation like age-verification. Hopefully the U.S. will follow! ~~~

    “The industry is imploding,” the director of a pay-per-view adult television channel says. “If there was less free porn around, my business would be stronger.” Jerry Barnett, an industry lobbyist, and founder of Sex and Censorship, thinks the UK business “has shrunk by over 90%” in the past seven years. […]

    “The tubes gave the typical surfer all the free content he would like. That has cannibalised the monetisation of all adult content. I blame it on hubris. We thought it was always going to be good, that no one would mess with our business model. We believed that people would still pay for something they could get for free.” He believes there has been an 80% drop in the number of UK businesses. “Regulation has killed it a bit too. The age-verification is killing us,” he says.

This excellent article also exposes how many young women REGRET the porn they make, and how callous pornographers are about the women begging to get the porn they were in removed:

    “Every two or three weeks we get a call from one of our performers, mainly in the Czech Republic, asking us to remove something. They say ‘My boyfriend will split up with me’ or ‘He has taken my baby away’. Some of them are really, really distressed. It is a horrible part … it is an upsetting part [of the job]. There is nothing we can do. The girls wanted to shoot, we pay them a lot of money … ” he says, flatly.

    “We tell them it is going on the internet. We don’t pretend it is for our own consumption. But once a video is on the internet, there is nothing we can do. We have to say to the girls: ‘I’m sorry’. They say: ‘I’ll pay you.’ But there is nothing we can do.”

His response of course is a lie. They COULD accept a fee to remove the content. They’re clearly just too greedy to do so.

Anyway, feel free to bring up this fact to any porn watchers you know — that no matter how enthusiastic a woman in porn looks, (because she is ACTING and being PAID), that it’s entirely likely that she regrets that porn being shot, and would do anything to get it removed. And that anyone watching it is just contributing to the misery and regret of these women.

The porn industry still won’t protect the health and safety of performers, so ex performers and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation have protested recently in Los Angeles and Oakland and held a press conference in L.A.

Their goals are to get Cal/OSHA to clarify their standards regarding condom use in porn, and to get condoms in porn legislation for California added to the 2016 Presidential election ballot. Protesters include our good friend Cameron:

    “…The bureaucratic process means that more performers will be at risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases on film sites, said Cameron Adams, who went by the name Cameron Bay when she was a performer. Adams said she contracted HIV last year while shooting at San Francisco-based Kink Studios.

    “I’m fighting for the rights and health of performers out there so they don’t end up like me, and this is the only way we’re going to get to them,” said Adams. She met with Cal/OSHA officials during the protest to hand them a letter asking they release their standards immediately.”

Porn and professional fighting are both full of violence, so when they mix, “real life” violence is sadly common — as in the case of Jenna Jameson and her ex — MMA fighter Tito Ortiz. Over the past month, a similar saga has played out with MMA fighter “War Machine” (Jonathan Koppenhaver) and his now ex girlfriend, porn performer Christy Mack. Christy describes what happened when “War Machine” went to her house a couple of weeks ago, when she had a male friend visiting with her:

WARNING!! Very graphic and disturbing!!

After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of a broken rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/12/porn-star-christy-mack-speaks-out_n_5672346.html

——————–

Sadly this is not the first incident of violence between the two:

    “Mack has previously tweeted about her boyfriend’s violent tendency.

    Fox Sports reports that last November she wrote that Koppenhaver ‘threatened to kill’ her.

    She deleted the tweets not long after and Koppenhaver tweeted that she had been joking.

    Later, she tweeted that she had endured ‘several slapping, choking unconscious, smothering, kicking and throwings’ at his hands.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2721635/MMA-fighter-wanted-police-brutal-beating-porn-star-girlfriend-person.html

———-

Then “War Machine” went on the lam, and was finally apprehended by the police:

http://www.newsday.com/sports/mixed-martial-arts/war-machine-jon-koppenhaver-arrested-in-christy-mack-beating-1.9073714

———-

The latest update as of August 24, is that Koppenhaver is in still in jail in California, and that he’s awaiting extradition to Nevada. If convicted, he may serve up to 25 years. More details have also emerged about how Koppenhaver was apprehended. It seems he was turned in by a women who was staying in the same hotel as him, because she heard a fight from his room and witnessed yet another bloodied woman coming from there! (Yet Koppenhaver claims to be a “good guy,” who just likes to do “alpha male sh*t.”)

Check out the story and the video at the link below. The woman who turned in Koppenhaver is dying of cancer and is donating her $20,000 in reward money to a domestic abuse shelter for women.
