Here’s a powerful testimonial from a young woman who was just one of many teen victims of pornographic extortion — by a very sick man who ruined many girls’ lives.

    Chansler told detectives he targeted children because adult women were “too smart” to fall for his scheme. Investigators found thousands of videos and photos on his computers, including recordings of girls crying and pleading with him to stop and one girl holding a handwritten sign with a single word: “rape.” […]

    For victims, she said, “it’s psychologically damaging. It’s not fair. People think victims of child pornography are not touched. It’s not like rape. It’s just overlooked. … They don’t realize what we’re doing when we have to send those pictures. We’re doing it ourselves. We’re forced to. … We could not say no.”

    Reynolds said the people who look at the pictures “are dads and brothers and sons.” She wants to tell them, “This could be your sister.”

    They are creating the demand, the marketplace that is being catered to by the child pornography producers and extortionists.

    “You’re contributing to it. You can’t be a law-abiding citizen if you’re contributing to extortion,” Reynolds said. “People send out those pictures and make them public because of people who view them.”

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 powerful, heartbreaking, but inspirational story of ex porn performer “Sunset Thomas” (@SunsetThomas) — who was in the porn industry for decades, (she made over 200 films), and who also worked for years in Nevada’s legal brothels.

Now known by her real name Diane, this article shares her story, describing the horrific toll that the sex industry took on her because of how she was so used and abused by the men in her life. (Mostly personally, but sometimes professionally, as those worlds were often connected.) It also shares how incredibly difficult it was for Diane to leave the sex trade.

    “Thomas explained to a reporter how many of the men in her life poached off her decades of earnings, first in the porn industry and later in brothels that capitalized off her high profile adult industry name. She said despite the fact she spent over two decades in the profession – her name and face known throughout the world – she has little to show in the way of savings.

    “I’m finally out,” Thomas said. “I was tired of the stress and people forcing me to do things I don’t want to do. I’m tired of people trying to pressure me to keep doing it when I don’t have to do it. I want to live a normal life like everyone else.” […]

    “The conditions at the brothel where she was working were prison-like with two week, 24/7 lockdowns,” Dr. Martin said. “It was an existence for her that became more and more unbearable, mentally and physically. She wanted to leave, but the money she was making for them was an incentive for them to keep her in it.” […]

    Stanley [Diane’s mother] said it was difficult to hear her daughter say over and over again she didn’t want to live that kind of life anymore.

    “I heard her cry and say she did not want to do these things,” Stanley said. “But no one would help, until Robert (Martin). She and Robert had been friends for a long time and when she called and asked him for help he went and got her, but she was nearly dead.”

    Stanley was referring to Thomas’ poor state of health when Martin retrieved her from Las Vegas, where she had gone into hiding after being beaten and injured by someone she declined to immediately identify. After rescuing Thomas from a bad situation, Dr. Martin nursed her back to health, Thomas’ mother said.”

NOTE: For some reason the reporter inserted a random short section in the middle of the article that shares a bishop’s opinion on women leaving the sex industry. While everyone is free to practice any faith or none as they choose, Diane has written on her Twitter account that she is spiritual and not religious, so she’s not following the religious aspects of the path that this bishop advises, who is someone who is not connected to Diane.

And to be clear, women in the sex industry are *exploited* by pimps, johns, husbands and boyfriends, etc. So those who are committing the greatest transgressions (“sins”, per the bishop) are not the women in prostitution, who are usually just trying desperately to survive, but the (almost always) MALE EXPLOITERS. It is these men — not the women they’ve exploited — who should be seeking “redemption”, by coming clean and making amends, etc. The bishop does provide some other solid advice, though, about exited women finding a new set of friends for support, who aren’t in the sex industry.

In any case, we wish Diane all the best with whatever path she chooses to take from here on out that helps her to heal and prosper in her new and healthier life.

Go Diane! Well done on your new life! We support you and are grateful for you sharing your story to inform, help, and inspire others! 🙂

It’s great to see Google using their power and resources to do something so productive to combat child pornography!

    [Business Insider] — Google is going to start using a database of thousands of pornographic images and videos of children to block people from searching them.

    The BBC reports that “digital fingerprints” of known child sex abuse photographs, identified and compiled by a UK charity called the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), will be used to generate flags that prevent browsers from accessing them. […]

    “This is important because every single image or video is of a real child being sexually abused and every time someone views that image or video that child is re-victimised.”

———————

Exactly! Go Google! We hope many others follow this lead and do their *own* part to end all forms of sexual abuse, but in particular online child sexual abuse. (Aka “child pornography.”)

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!

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.

GOOD NEWS from Ireland! They’re adopting the Nordic Model for prostitution of criminalizing only the sex buyers — while decriminalizing the prostituted women. Yay team! 🙂

    “The Immigrant Council of Ireland has welcomed the move, which it said was an important first step in “wrecking the business model” that had allowed pimps and traffickers to profit from exploiting women.

    The Council has been lobbying heavily for changes in the legislation for quite some time, highlighting the high number of women who have been trafficked into the trade, as well as violence, criminal and sexual assaults, and exploitation that are commonplace.”

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/purchase-of-sex-to-be-criminalised-under-new-law-1.2014953

Let’s hope that this new legislation and the similar new legislation in Canada lead many more countries to JUST SAY NO TO PROSTITUTION!

GOOD NEWS from Japan! Possession of child pornography is FINALLY illegal! It’s about time, don’t you think? We do!

[Reuters] – TOKYO, June 18 (Reuters) – Japan’s parliament voted on Wednesday to outlaw possession of child pornography after years of international calls for a crackdown, but avoided a clampdown on sexually explicit manga comics and animation depicting young children.

Japan is the last OECD nation to criminalize possession of child pornography, although it outlawed production and distribution in 1999, and has long been considered a safe haven for those buying child pornography.

“For too long, there was a poor understanding of children’s rights. Ultimately, that’s why it’s taken so long,” Kiyohiko Toyama, a member of the New Komeito party and a proponent of the bill, told Reuters.

“By outlawing the possession of child pornography with the intent to satisfy sexual interest, we make it harder for people to trade in such material.”

The new law, however, excluded an original clause calling for a study onto the effects of such pornographic manga involving young children, after publishers and opposition lawmakers said it could lead to curbing free speech.

———-

But look how bad it had to get before they made that happen:

National data show a rise in child pornography crimes, with police uncovering 1,644 cases last year, around 10 times higher than a decade ago. Over half of the cases involved sharing or selling photos or videos over the Internet, police said.

Yikes. Better late than never, though! Hopefully this will eventually lead to pornographic child manga (child cartoon porn) also being made illegal someday. In the meantime, hopefully this new law will also save many children from being horrifically sexually abused, and having it be filmed for the sick sexual pleasure of pedophiles!

We must fight against a tendency of looking at children as sexual objects, and allowing them to be taken advantage of, sexually and commercially.

Exactly! To say the least!

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! 🙂
