"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
 
         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 a recent article entitled "Want to Stop Sex-Trafficking? Look to America's Porn Addiction" by John Henry Westen. The Huffington Post had this to report on the link between pornography and sex trafficking. 

 

"Dr. Gail Dines, a professor of sociology and women's studies at Wheelock College who also chairs its American Studies department, said in comment for this piece that "we know that trafficking is increasing -- which means demand is increasing. This means that men are increasingly willing to have sex with women who are being controlled and abused by pimps and traffickers."

"There are only two conclusions here: That men are naturally willing to do this to women -- biology -- or that they are being socialized by the culture to lose all empathy for women," Dines said. "I refuse to accept that men are born rapists, porn users, or johns."

"As an academic, a sociologist, and mother, I believe it is the way men are shaped by society," said Dines. "The biggest sex educator of young men today is pornography, which is increasingly violent and dehumanizing, and it changes the way men view women."
