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! 🙂

Hello 2015! 🙂

We’d like to thank all good people who did everything they could in 2014 to help humanity — especially those who fought against the devastating harms of pornography, prostitution, sex trafficking and sexual slavery. We hope that more people will step up and do their part for this important cause this year.

The future of millions of lives of those who are being brutally exploited, abused and enslaved depends on what each and every person does or doesn’t do to help, and we are ALL equally responsible for helping as much as we can. It’s not up to “the government”, a few overworked volunteers, a handful of underfunded organizations, or “somebody else” to do the work to make things better. It’s up to ALL OF US. So we hope everyone will take heed of this and act accordingly.

In case you missed it, here is our year-ending newsletter, with lots of inspiring successes that our organization accomplished in 2014 in changing people’s lives and humanity for the better!

http://www.antipornography.org/newsletters/newsletter/7392154/94280.htm

Want to start the New Year off right by doing something for a good cause? Then please donate to help us do more in 2015 to help others!

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

If you’d like to really step up to make a difference in 2015, mature, responsible and hard-working volunteers from North America with good English language skills are always needed!

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

Best wishes for a great 2014 to all good supporters, humanitarians, volunteers, donors, and hard-working activists everywhere! 🙂

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.”)

We find that sharing the stories of ex porn performers is one of the most powerful ways to create meaningful change, which is why we focus on a great deal on this.

———————-

MEANINGFUL RESULTS FROM OUR ORGANIZATION’S WORK IN 2014:

“I just want to thank you for changing my life and the wrong perspective I had about porn.” – SF

“Jessica’s story was how I’ve managed to get off porn, and I’m so grateful.” – NT

“Wow… This is really shocking…. I honestly always looked at porn as normal, and that it was normal for every one to watch it. But what is actually behind the lines is really depressing and sick….” – ICE Trey

“This video with Jessica brought me some answers and makes me even more motivated to never watch any porn again (and it’s not easy as I started when I was 14 and I’m already 24.)” – David Barrau

“I usually watch porn and like it, but this video…. made me cry, and made me more human than I used to be. Because porn is something so aggressive… but women are not pieces of meat to eat, they are humans. (Women — I mean ALL OF THEM, including the pornstars).” – Tomás Jesús

“Jessica: Your voice is the cure for the cruel and destructive pornography that polluted my soul. Thank you so much for setting me free from it. :-)” – NLJ

“This was actually very enlightening. I like this video and agree. You guys have inspired me to stop watching the filth known as porn.” – Mark Sullivan

“The impact that your story is having on me, Jessica — and probably many visitors to AntiPornography.org — might seem a small thing, but because of it we learn to see women once again in all their true natural beauty as full humans, and not as slaves anymore.” – NLJ

“Well, I have to admit that I have watched porn for a long time and always told myself that “these people like what they do,” etc. However, that’s over. Videos like this educated me and now I know what is really going on in this “industry”. The abuse and the disrespect for human beings which is implicated in the process of making porn is horrific, and for anybody who has some empathy or ethics there can be only one answer: considering porn as a threat not only for women but for all people involved. So I decided that I will never watch porn again and I will tell all my friends what is happening there.” – Kl2002010

“Jessica: I’ve been addicted to porn since I was an 8th grader. To this day I’ve watched porn on a daily basis. So, for over a decade I’ve been mentally locked by the facade of porn. After I watched you address the students at ASU, I immediately deleted every trace of porn that I had. Listening to you speak nearly brought me to tears, and I’m not the guy to cry over anything. But seeing you change made me realize that I too can change. I’m glad I was able to see someone who was in the business get out, and have a voice. That is incredibly powerful!” – JW

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for validating my feelings about porn. My husband used to be into it and it almost ruined our marriage. I’m so sick of people thinking wives over-react to something that is “normal” for men. Porn is not erotica.Thanks again for educating people about this.” – Janet G.

“I would like you to know that I’ve been making a lot of progress enriching peoples lives with your organization’s message. And like I said before, Jessica Mendes’ story inspired me to undertake this task and it’s proving to be successful… Many people feel a change of heart and believe they’ve made errors in their ways. Her story as well as many others have had profound effects on them. Will keep you posted on more things happening. Peace be with you. Jessica’s message here in South Africa has touched many, and I will continue to do my part.” – Micalyn Moodley

“Well thanks for sharing this video. I’m not going to watch porn any more. I was going to, but after watching this video I changed my mind.” – jovany valencia

“This makes that 3rd month that I have gone without viewing pornography online, or through other means for more than a few accidental clicks. Thanks for the information on the website. Anti-pornography information has been very helpful to me!” – Mealane8

“Jessica Mendes’ videos have truly opened up my mind my eyes, and I’ve now not watched a single porn video in over 8 months, and am planning to stop permanently. Apart from that I’m trying my best to spread around to my porn addict friends about this website. BRAVO TO JESSICA MENDES, as she made an addict like me feel sick about the dark side of porn. Jessica is doing great efforts. I support her and AntiPornography.org all the way.” – 20 year old male

“Your website provided me with such helpful information and completely changed my perspective…. I just wanted to thank you for changing my perspective at a young age and spreading the word, which I find to be INCREDIBLY important.” – Kenton

“Thank you for all of the helpful information. I work with sexually abusive youth and your website has been a great resource.” – Tam

“BRAVO. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR EFFORTS. EVERY ASPECT COVERED. (At AntiPornography.org’s website.) I have faith that as people open and purify their hearts they will see that in hurting others we are ultimately hurting ourselves and all. Great love to all of you working on this. I am confident you are SAVING LIVES.” – 27 year old female

“This was seriously such a fantastic opportunity for my class at ASU and we were SO grateful to have Jessica with us that day. It was amazing to hear her story, experiences, and wisdom. I think my class really learned a lot that day and hopefully they will look at the world differently now. I look forward to continuing my involvement with AntiPornography.org through volunteer work and inspiring others to do the same. This is an important cause and I am so glad to be involved with such a great organization!” – Emma-Li Thompson

—————

Well there you have it! Pretty inspiring stuff, isn’t it? 🙂 We’d like to accomplish a lot more great work like this to prevent and combat the harms of pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking in 2015, (remember: they are all connected!), but like all nonprofits we depend on the kind support and generosity of others to help us with this.

So we hope all of you who care will step up and make a much-needed donation to help us make the world a better and more porn-free world for everyone. Please remember that this is a TEAM EFFORT, and that we are ALL responsible for doing what we can to end the harms of all forms of sexual exploitation.

Many thanks to all who care enough to TAKE ACTION and give what you can. We really appreciate your support! 🙂

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!
