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.

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:

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

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!

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’re hoping the results of this new study exposing pornography harms will encourage many men to stop using it! ~ (As well as encourage women to firmly say NO to porn in their relationships!)

    The study suggests most commercial porn follows a “homogenous script involving violence and female degradation.” Researchers say that, as porn has become a “primary source of sexual education,” those codes of behavior become more embedded and the more likely viewers are to use those scripts to act upon real life experiences.

    They found men who watch pornography several days a week rely on it for arousal and tend to involve it in their sex life by requesting particular pornographic acts. They also found the men who watch porn enjoyed sex less than those who didn’t watch porn.

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!

Some people doubt that REAL snuff films exist, but here’s evidence of one planned and carried out by someone who once did porn themselves.

    A porn actor who killed his Chinese lover and dismembered his body pleads not guilty to murder due to mental illness. […]

    The gruesome case shocked Canadians and quickly gained international notoriety. A video appeared online that prosecutors say shows Magnotta stabbing and having sex with the dismembered corpse.

    According to the prosecution, Magnotta planned the killing up to six months in advance and laid out those plans in an email to a London journalist who will testify during the trial.

    Magnotta then allegedly planned to make a movie of the killing.

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.

Novelist John Grisham thinks penalties for “child porn” viewers are too harsh. We disagree. What do *you* think?

    “We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child… But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn.”

    The author of legal thrillers such as The Firm and A Time to Kill who has sold more than 275m books during his 25-year career, cited the case of a “good buddy from law school” who was caught up in a Canadian child porn sting operation a decade ago as an example of excessive sentencing.

    “His drinking was out of control, and he went to a website. It was labelled ‘sixteen year old wannabee hookers or something like that’. And it said ’16-year-old girls’. So he went there. Downloaded some stuff – it was 16 year old girls who looked 30.
    “He shouldn’t ’a done it. It was stupid, but it wasn’t 10-year-old boys. He didn’t touch anything. And God, a week later there was a knock on the door: ‘FBI!’ and it was sting set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to catch people – sex offenders – and he went to prison for three years.”

READ THE REST OF THIS STORY AT THE LINK BELOW — And watch the VIDEO of Grisham explaining how watching (and almost certainly masturbating to) images of child sexual abuse, and therefore creating a DEMAND for them, isn’t really that bad at all!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/11165656/John-Grisham-men-who-watch-child-porn-are-not-all-paedophiles.html

——————–

~ After the above interview was published there was great public outrage. Then John Grisham ‘apologized’ on his website. It’s good he did this, but was he sincere, or just doing some necessary PR damage control to try to calm people’s upset and salvage his reputation and career? We can’t help but wonder…

For the record, there have been numerous peer-reviewed studies which have documented a link between viewing of child pornography and the committing of sex crimes against children in “real life” by those porn viewers.

~ Here’s a NYT article which discusses a study that estimates as many as 85% of viewers of child pornography have already, or will directly molest/rape/sexually abuse children:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/19/us/19sex.html?_r=0

~ Also, here’s a powerful impact statement by a victim/survivor of filmed child sexual abuse (“child pornography”), that John Grisham thinks it’s not so bad to view and masturbate to:

http://www.dailylife.com.au/life-and-love/real-life/i-am-a-real-victim-of-child-pornography-and-it-affects-me-every-day-and-everywhere-i-go-20131216-2zgn4.html

——————–

~ Finally, here’s an example of a man who is dealing with child pornography and his attraction to children properly — by NOT using child porn, or sexual offending, but instead by supporting anti-pornography efforts, including our organization:

    “I am a 23 year old male, and I am opposed to porn. Although I see a few benefits to SOME porn, I also see the harm.

    I must admit, I am sexually attracted to children mainly, and to young looking adults. (No, I have not comitted any sexual act with a child, as I am against it.) I study psychology and see the harm it does to children, and as a result see the harm to adults can be the same.

    I support non-harmful means for a person to have sexual release, but real porn causes too much harm. It can help a single man, or woman, but I see more harm in the world.

    The main concern is child abuse and child sex abuse, which is good, but these pornographic behaviors in many houses are hurting children and adults. I am glad to see an organization addressing these problems. So, I have started donating and plan to donate more.”
