Pornography & Trafficking

"The relationship between the massive scale demand for porn and both the domestic and global demand for prostitution/commercial sex are unquestionably connected. The commercial sex industry is a gateway to sex trafficking and to those who see profit from such exploitation. Regardless of the involvement of sex trafficked victims in a particular piece of pornography it does open the door for an increase in the demand for prostitution, which thus fuels human trafficking. Porn is also often used as “training tools” for inexperienced - most often minors, as the average entry into the commercial sex industry in the U.S. is 11-12 years old - persons forced into the life."
