A person who has a relatively large number of compulsive sexual encounters might be at much greater risk of contracting an STD or putting him or herself in dangerous situations.
What if human trafficking and pornography are more linked than we think? The Role of Sex Trafficking in Pornography Many people justify their consumption of pornography as a victimless i ndulgence.
After all, the thinking goes, the women are consenting adults, this is how they are choosing to make some money? Sex trafficking is not just providing unwilling prostitutes around the world. Predators seek out vulnerable boys, girls, and women and lure them, or outright kidnap them, and remove them from their friends and family and force them into performing sex acts.
These predators use everything from drugs, physical and sexual abuse, lies, psychological manipulation, and actual imprisonment to get their victims to do what they want. Often victims are illegally taken across international borders.
This fear of law enforcement prevents them from getting help even when they have the chance to escape. While organized crime and terrorist organizations play major roles in sex trafficking, local criminals such as pimps and madams also play a role.
Sex traffickers are not particular about the source of their income. Not all victims of sex trafficking are solely used in prostitution or as sex-slaves to paying customers.
Pornography allows these predators to make money several times from one film. Sex traffickers are not particular about the age of their victims and often use children in these films. While sex trafficking is often thought to be a big problem in the third-world countries, it is the money from the industrialized countries that allows sex trafficking to flourish.
Contrary to popular belief, the United States is a major perpetrator of sex trafficking crimes. Most of the pornographic films are sold to sites that make money from advertising revenue.
When you are watching pornography you have no way of knowing the source of the film. Based on the numbers of these films that are being produced with the cooperation of sex traffickers, any viewer of pornography has probably unwittingly funneled money into sex trafficking.
Thus, not only supporting the sex trafficking crime, but creating higher demand for these crimes to be committed so further pornography can be consumed.
The more money sex traffickers make, the more they will expand. The more victims they will seek. The more young girls and boys they will kidnap, entrap, in prison and violate.What is the influence of pornography on rape?
