Practicing BDSM often leads to SEVERE ABUSE: A mentally disabled teen girl was imprisoned, trafficked and tortured — for SIX YEARS — by a couple who pimped her out for profit to other sadists for their sick sexual pleasure.

First she was groomed with pornography, as is often the case with sexual abuse victims:

    “She described how the Bagleys initially showed her images and videos of people practicing bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism — or BDSM — and told her it was fun. She signed a contract on her 18th birthday that Bagley said made her his sex slave for life.”

    Then she was imprisoned and tortured — sometimes for just for personal gratification, and sometimes being pimped out or turned into live pornography so others could take sexual pleasure in her suffering:

    “The girl allegedly suffered water-boarding, electric shock, piercing and mutilation, according to the Kansas City Star.

    Four other men have been charged for allegedly paying Bagley to have sex with his ‘slave’ and to watch webcam sessions of her being tortured.”

Clearly sadomasochism, pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking are all very closely related, and if one is against any one of them, one needs to take a stand against ALL of them.

Here’s a great article which responds well to the all-too-common criticism of anti-porn people being “anti-sex” — by describing the profoundly disturbing but all too real connections of pornography to child sex abuse and sex trafficking.

    ‘In Cambodia, Cacho met a woman who runs a brothel who explained how she ‘reprograms’ girls by ‘normalising sexual exploitation through systematic exposure to pornography. They have to be convinced that they were the ones who chose to do this, and they must be constantly reminded that their lives are worth nothing.’

    Some UN member states estimate between 60-90% of women in the sex trade are trafficked. Thai estimates show 40% of the sex trade is child sex abuse and around 90% of trafficked girls are underage. Indigenous women are also highly overrepresented in areas of the trade. Global inequality has long encouraged sexual exploitation, but only recently has it been broadcast in pornography. How many of these women feature on porn movies watched across the world? Research suggests users do not care.

    Criticism of such issues may be framed as “anti sex”, or against those working in the trade. On the contrary, the western choice rhetoric may legitimise exploitation of the economically vulnerable. Arguments for choice, agency or “feminist porn” create new opportunities to expand sales, rather than ethics. Users draw upon piecemeal evidence to argue the sex industry can actually reduce sexist attitudes and violence. This goes directly against a 2010 meta-analysis, most recent experimental evidence and Nordic state legislation review showing the opposite.

Yay! Prostitution is now illegal in Canada! Plus there’s a new focus on DEMAND — through prosecuting pimps and johns — and on helping women exit the sex trade and transition to better lives. See basic details below, and the full press release covering all points at the link.

“The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act is a “made-in-Canada” model, which directly targets the demand for this dangerous activity. The Act would introduce tough action to crack down on pimps and johns. For the first time, the purchase of sexual services would be criminalized, with tough penalties for those who exploit others through prostitution. The proposed legislation would also protect and safeguard our communities-in particular women, children, and those who are at risk of being drawn into prostitution-from the dangers associated with prostitution, including violence, drug-related crime, and organized crime.

“This model involves a significant overhaul of the Criminal Code’s treatment of prostitution and related activities. It would:

— Criminalize those who fuel the demand for prostitution, i.e. purchasers of sexual services;

— Continue to criminalize those who financially benefit from the exploitation of others through prostitution, such as pimps, and those who procure others for the purpose of prostitution;

— Prohibit advertising for the sale of others’ sexual services in print or online;

— Immunize those who sell their own sexual services from criminal liability for any part they play in the purchasing, material benefit, procuring or advertising offences;
Protect our communities by criminalizing communicating for the purpose of selling sexual services in public places where a child could reasonably be expected to be present;

and

— Increase existing penalties relating to child prostitution.
“These measures will be supported by $20 million in new funding, including to support grassroots organizations dealing with the most vulnerable. Assistance will be provided to those who want to leave this dangerous and harmful activity; therefore, there will be an emphasis on funding programs that can help individuals exit prostitution.”

http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/statement-minister-justice-regarding-legislation-response-supreme-court-canada-ruling-1917491.htm

———-

NOTE: We acknowledge that this is not the same or as ideal as the full Nordic Model that abolitionists were hoping and working for, but it is still a HUGE improvement from previous laws, and an even greater leap from what pro-sex industry people were going for. So we consider this to be a significant success and an enormous step in the right direction. Go Canada! 🙂

Here’s a great video of a policemen sharing how the Nordic Model for prostitution reduces sex trafficking!

NOTE: He lives and works in Sweden where it originated, and it’s his job to arrest sex buyers, so he is an expert!

VIDEO TITLE: Simon Häggström from Swedish police at EWL seminar on prostitution, 1 Oct 2013

VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6O4xzzTqSU

INFO: The Nordic or Swedish Model reduces the DEMAND for prostitution by criminalizing the male buyers of sex, while decriminalizing the women in prostitution and helping them as needed, with exit and transition services, etc. And it WORKS to really reduce both prostitution and human trafficking.

This model was just approved by the European Parliament, so hopefully it will be implemented more all over Europe — and then in other places in the world, like here in the United States!

Below is another excellent but shorter video with the same eloquent Swedish policeman, telling it like it is about how effective the Nordic Model is for combating prostitution and sex trafficking. Very informative and inspirational!

SAD NEWS: Amnesty Int’l (@Amnesty) supports decriminalization/legalization of prostitution. Tell them NO! ~~~~~~ (Petition and other links further down.)

[Daily Mail] — Laws that ban people from buying or selling sex should be scrapped because they breach their human rights, according to Amnesty International.

A policy document drawn up by the charity claims that prostitutes, pimps and men who buy sex are simply ‘exercising their autonomy’ and should be allowed to do so ‘free from government interference’.

The proposal, which also bizarrely compares prostitutes to coal miners and domestic servants, was uncovered by writer Julie Bindel.

It has now sparked a major row within the organisation, which is best known for its attempts to free political prisoners and campaigns against torture.

Last night critics said Amnesty was ‘losing the plot’ with one former member accusing the organisation of ‘betraying women’s rights’. They told the Mail: ‘We do not solve the problems for women in the developing world by encouraging them to be prostitutes. Who benefits from that? The men. Prostitution is a form of exploitation and abuse – not a choice.’

NEW ANTI-PORN DOCUMENTARY: Featuring AntiPornography.org volunteer, ex-porn performer VANESSA BELMOND

20131018-152918.jpg

There is a NEW UK DOCUMENTARY that has been made on the harms of pornography! It will air Monday October 21 on Channel 4 and will then be posted on their site for 30 days! (Free On Demand.)

“Date My Porn Star” may not sound like an anti-porn doc, but it really is! And one of the things that makes it anti-porn is that our very own volunteer, ex porn performer Vanessa Belmond, is appearing in the documentary! She shares the HARSH TRUTH about porn with three male porn fans, and really wakes them up! 🙂

[Channel 4] – Watching porn has never been easier. With hardcore sexual imagery just a click away, more and more people, of all ages, are accessing porn. For many it not only forms part of their sex life, but can become a daily or even hourly fixture.

In this documentary, part of the Campaign for Real Sex, three British porn obsessives explore the boundaries between sexual fantasy and reality as they travel to the heart of the porn industry in Los Angeles to meet their favourite adult movie stars.

Forty-year-old Jonathan, 20-year-old Kevin and 23-year-old Danny are anticipating the trip of a lifetime. As well as meeting their porn idols, however, the men get more than they bargained for as they are faced with a darker and less glamorous side of porn.

Seeing their porn idols in action on set is enticing. But when they discuss their life and the value of real and lasting relationships it comes as a surprise for the men.

When they visit a low-end porn studio and witness a casting conveyer belt of wannabe porn stars, followed by a porn orgy that’s deeply degrading for female actors, the men begin to question their views.

The final meeting with an ex-porn star, who shares her candid, harrowing story, could be the final tipping point. Exposed to the challenging realities of the industry, can the men continue to reconcile their sexual fantasies with their experiences in porn-land?

———————-

NOTE: We will be sharing a lot more about Vanessa soon, including about 15 articles that she has written, and about 15 videos that we’ve done together! 🙂 But in the meantime we just wanted to let you know that Vanessa is going to be in this documentary, and that she did a great job! We hope all of you who are in the UK will watch this program and let us know what you think! Thanks! 🙂

A young man searched for ‘granny porn’ for 4 hours, then stabbed to death his step-grandmother

20131016-181515.jpg

Here is a VERY disturbing story about a young man who spent four hours surfing for hardcore “granny” porn, then murdered his grandmother right afterwards! But porn doesn’t REALLY affect the viewers and their attitudes and behavior, right?? It’s just “harmless ‘adult’ entertainment,” right? We’ll let you be the judge…

TRIGGER WARNING! Contains horrific graphic details!

[Mirror UK] — A ‘troubled’ young man knifed his step-grandmother to death in a sexually-motivated killing after an internet surfing session for ‘granny porn’.

Jack Huxley, 20, armed himself with kitchen knives and a carving fork to stab vulnerable pensioner Janis Dundas as she slept, leaving three blades protruding from her battered body before he fled.

The 62-year-old had given her wayward stepson a bed for the night after he turned up on her doorstep, apparently homeless.

But after a late-night session on her computer searching the web for ‘sexual activity between young men and mature women’, Huxley subjected his elderly relative to a brutal attack, leaving behind up to 28 knife wounds.

Ms Dundas bloodied body was found naked on her bed with evidence that her stepson had engaged in ‘sexual activity’ with her, but not intercourse.

Liverpool Crown Court today heard loner Huxley had never had a girlfriend, had a history of self-harm and been bullied regularly during his childhood.

His barrister Charles Miskin QC said: “He was like a wild animal who doesn’t care about anything.”

Checks of Ms Dundas’ computer revealed Huxley, who sat in the dock holding his head in his hands, had scoured the internet for hardcore pornography over a four-hour period leading up to the ferocious attack at her home in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

Among the catalogue of injuries were a nine-inch wound to her neck, severing the larynx, and ‘horrific’ defensive wounds to her hands which left one of her fingers ‘hanging off’, prosecutor Stuart Lawson-Rogers said.

Ms Dundas heavily bloodstained tights had been removed completely while beneath her body was a pair of Huxley’s Calvin Klein boxer shorts.

Today, Huxley pleaded guilty to murder on the first day of his scheduled trial, but Judge Clement Goldstone suspended sentence until tomorrow.

A neighbour told police how she watched a young man drive away from the scene, on April 5, in Mrs Dundas Peugoet car, momentarily crashing into a wall.

“MEET THE GIRLS WHO ARE BORN TO BE PROSTITUTES” (Toronto Star) — Average recruitment age has dropped to 9-12 years old

20131015-155626.jpg

PLEASE READ AND SHARE this heartbreaking article on sex trafficking of girls in India.

[Toronto Star] — Like many Indian girls, Suchitra was taught her future profession by her mother. In her village, there was only one path. Even before she’d reached puberty, Suchitra had learned different sexual positions and other ways to please a customer.

At age 14, a man she had never seen before showed up one day at the family’s house near Bharatpur in northern India. At her mother’s urging, Suchitra got into his car. Six hours later they reached their destination. It was a brothel in New Delhi’s red-light district. She had been sent into sexual servitude.

“I always knew that this would be my life,” says Suchitra, sitting in her wardrobe-sized room and wearing a low-cut green top and jeans, her hair pulled back in a tight bun. “I can never forget what I’ve done but it is the only way for my family to earn a living.”

Suchitra, now 20, is from one of hundreds of villages in India where centuries-old tradition dictates that most girls enter into a life of prostitution. Rising wealth hasn’t reduced the trafficking of girls for sex in the world’s second-most populous nation: the number of child prostitutes is growing and the average recruitment age has dropped to between 9 and 12 years old, according to the Delhi-based National Human Rights Commission.

“We are witnessing an unprecedented growth in prostitution,” says K.K. Mukherjee, a sociologist who has studied sex workers for more than three decades and has written government reports on the subject. “It is being driven by rising levels of income but also by a change in sexual attitudes and the increasing migration of women to cities.”

Districts such as Bharatpur, where half of the women are illiterate, are breeding grounds for the country’s $4-billion sex trafficking industry. India has 3 million sex workers, of whom 1.2 million are below the age of 18, according to a government estimate. The South Asian nation traffics more women for sex than any other country.

The growth of underage prostitution in a country where the gross domestic product has risen on average about 8 per cent annually in the past decade is testimony to the treatment of women and the power of caste in the world’s biggest democracy. India, which carries out almost 40 per cent of the world’s female sterilizations, where a woman is raped on average every 21 minutes and where a third of all women are illiterate, is failing to change views that undercut the status of women.

Whole families from some castes at the bottom rungs of India’s social hierarchy rely on income from their daughters’ sex work, with fathers and brothers often acting as pimps. The girls often have their virginity auctioned to the highest bidder once they reach puberty.

Suchitra, who is of the Bedia caste, shows how the caste-based system determines access to occupations and social status. Rooted in religion, the millennia-old structure marginalizes certain groups, imprisoning women in a cycle of isolation and abuse. Many female members of the Bedia community, which numbers about 20,000, say they are treated like outcasts. They can’t marry if they have worked as a prostitute, are refused service in shops, are called “whores” and are greeted with disinterest by police when one of them is raped.

“Caste remains a defining feature for most Indians,” says Satish Misra, a political analyst at the Observer Research Foundation, a policy group based in New Delhi. “These attitudes bring an enormous cost in terms of a lack of social mobility and lost economic opportunities.”

CASTE-BASED PREJUDICE

A single bare bulb exudes dim light in Suchitra’s room, just enough to see the black water stains on the peeling, faded pastel-green walls. Used condoms lie on the floor. The stench of urine, sweat and cheap perfume hangs in the air. Rats gnaw at piles of garbage in the corridors outside.

Suchitra, who would only give her first name for fear of arrest by the police, says she has sex with as many as a dozen men a day for as little as 100 rupees ($1.65) a time. A concrete slab that takes up most of her room serves as a bed, where she sleeps and does her work. Customers have threatened her with knives, guns and beer bottles, she says.
