Sex Trafficking and the links to Porn in America

Sex Trafficking and the links to Porn in America

posted on: September 6, 2018

When I first began to study and write Pushing Back the Darkness novel I wanted to fight the injustice of modern day slavery and bring awareness to this issue. I soon found this was bigger than me. I continue to bring awareness and help wherever I can.

Washington, D.C., has more porn viewership per capita than any state in the nation, followed by Illinois, Georgia and Nevada.

Justice demands that every person in the United States recognize a certain truth: when you watch porn, you contribute to the very problem that needs to be solved. I read on a blog recently something I wanted to share here with you. Sex trafficking and pornography are two fruits of the same tree, both rooted in the exploitation of human beingsProtect Young Minds

  1. Porn consumption increases the demand for not only trafficked women and children but as well as young boys and men. Don’t think this just affects females. This is a nightmare that hurts males as well.
  2. Trafficking victims are used in the production of porn. You can research youtube videos of people who have testimonies of them coming out of the industry and saying it was their choice to be there and they could leave anytime, however, it almost every video you will see sadness in their eyes, anger in their voice and you will always hear excuses come out of their mouth about ‘why’ they did what they did. You will hear honest answers from them saying they were required to do more than they anticipated and ‘worked/used’ worse than they imagined. There is no respect in that industry. They were used and thrown away.

“It is everyone’s responsibility to do their part to reduce the demand for commercial sex.”

Education is the only way to change cultures and public policy in regards to human trafficking.  Other organizations to read about include a great group of men called :

Men against the Trafficking of Others

As always, a diverse group of Abolitionists I love is the :

SWLAAbolitionists Group

SWLA Abolitionists is made up of people in southwest Louisiana dedicated to fighting human trafficking through awareness, prevention, rescue and restoration. Our goal is to spread awareness on a local level through communities and relevant institutions. We aim to battle the notion that modern slavery only takes place in third world countries. We hope to give our local community a better understanding of the issue and how close it could be to them. Our passionate team also works to connect (and recruit) local abolitionists and serve as social advocates for victims and their families.

 

There are interviews from great authors and others fighting human trafficking across the globe in my blog that you can find as well.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out anytime! I am currently looking for funding to edit the sequel to Pushing Back the Darkness, and create a curriculum for emotional healing and restoration for survivors of sexual abuse. Please say a pray for me. Thanks!

  1. I recently watched Caged no more on PureFlix hard to watch God stirred my heart to the core!,, He came to seek and to save …those that are lists! We should too!

  2. My mother trafficked me to my uncle and his group of pedophiles from age 6 to 14. Though I have few memories of specific details, I do remember his large collection of porn that he was quite proud of.
