A major pornography website is now offering its own version of "sex education" for children – providing anti-porn and human trafficking groups another reason why action is needed against the website.
The website Pornhub has been accused of posting videos of trafficked women and underage girls. Lisa Thompson, director of the Research Institute at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, tells One News Now it's ranked 10th in the world for traffic to its website – and now it's offering its own brand of sex education targeting children.
"The so-called' sex education' material is highly explicit, very graphic," she begins, "but on top of that, at the end of these … materials are links to pure pornography that go straight to Porn Hub's site. So truly, this is just serving as a gateway so that Pornhub can rope in and trap more users."
The porn industry years ago indicated that if it can capture the mind of an 11-year-old child, they can have him or her as a customer for a lifetime.
The National Center has posted a warning for parents to be aware that the free sex-ed course is easily accessible to any child using the Internet or a smartphone. Thompson also points out that the website TraffickingHubpetition.com offers a petition to kick Pornhub off the Internet.
"… People can sign that [petition] to call on our elected officials to hold Pornhub accountable for the illegal content that's on its site," she urges. "Right now, it has over two-million people who've signed on to this petition."
The NCOSE spokeswoman adds that people can write letters to their elected officials in Washington, politely challenging them to take action to finally pull the plug on Pornhub.
