Knowledge is POWER!  

Before we can be a part of the solution to end human trafficking, we need to make sure we are not a part of the problem! If you are purchasing or watching pornography, you are fueling the sex trafficking industry!
  • Pornography drives the demand for sex trafficking
  • Trafficking victims are exploited in the production of pornography
  • Pornography production is a form of trafficking
  • Pornography is used as a training tool with sex trafficked victims


 Our Culture

When we question the injustice of trafficking, first we need to look at the condition of our culture. What kind of culture is producing so many men who are eager to buy women and children for sex, contributing to a $32 billion annual human trafficking industry? The same culture that produces and perpetuates a $100 billion per year pornography industry.


In recent interviews with men who purchased a woman or child for sex in prostitution, Benjamin Nolot, of the The Exodus Cry Movement, found there wasn’t one who didn’t have a history of viewing pornography.

  • In a study that compared men who buy sex with who don’t buy sex researchers found that sex buyers viewed and imitated pornography more often than the non-sex buyers.
  • Eighty percent of prostitution survivors at the WHISPER Oral History Project reported that their customers showed them pornography to illustrate the kinds of sexual activities in which they wanted to engage.
  • Fifty-two percent of the women stated that pornography played a significant role in teaching them what was expected of them as prostitutes.



Become Educated and Learn More

Become educated about the connections between pornography and sex trafficking. Then help others become aware as you begin to talk about it. If we hope to eradicate trafficking, we must address the demand side or we will simply continue rescuing victims and shaming men.

 “In my mind, pornography is a lot more harmful than even prostitution, because you take a picture or video of someone, they are forever exploited at the age and time that they are, so you can take a girl off the streets, and the exploitation stops, but their photos and videos are out there forever.” ~Trafficking survivor, Jessica Richardson
