Human Trafficking and the Porn Industry

The internet seems like a world within a world that surpasses conventional boundaries, whether in games, movies, music, etc. Despite the extensive benefits for all the users worldwide, the digital space poses threats and risks that lead to illegal, heinous, and immoral activities, such as porn addiction.

Some of you may have encountered porn addiction personally or amongst someone close to you. Pornography and sex movies are among the worst threats of the internet. For many parents, it is a nightmare to leave their kids with open access to the internet without adequate filtering routers and software

Porn addiction might begin at any age when a child starts to understand sexuality, orientation, and sexual urges. However, some of them might carry the influence of others, such as friends or other family members.

This addiction can disrupt a child’s and even an adult’s healthy lifestyle. People start to ignore their normal daily tasks, chores, duties, etc., in order to use the internet for pornography. There is a correlation between porn addiction and psychiatric conditions, and porn addicts experience higher levels of depressive symptoms. 

Moreover, porn addiction might have a deep link to human trafficking (i.e., sex trafficking).

What Porn Addicts Don’t Realize

As a general user of the internet and the common marketplaces, you must be aware that you create further demand only by watching porn regularly. That way, more pornography is available on the internet. There are ongoing researches and speculation that nearly 40 million people search for porn on the internet in the US. Moreover, studies about whether porn is addictive or not are already under process.

Credible sources from the US and other countries worldwide protrude that during human trafficking of sexually exploited and threatened women, pornography and forceful commercial sex acts took place. 

Generally, there’s a wide belief that when you indulge in pornography, you are also directly participating and promoting human trafficking and sex slavery. The idea and belief come from the organizations striving to restrict and work against sex slavery and commercial human trafficking for pornography around the world. 

What the Porn Stats Suggest

Nearly 25 million people fall victim to illegal modern slavery among which, nearly 19% face sexual exploitation. It means one child in every four modern-day slaves faces sexual exploitation. It is a great concern as commercial sex films and pornography create the demand for more sexual films that include the use of forceful means on trafficked humans.
