More accountability demanded of Pornhub and its allies

For years, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has been part of a coalition to fight against Pornhub for posting videos of underage actors and trafficked women. A critical article in the New York Times this month motivated Visa and Mastercard to stop processing payments to the porn company. Jake Roberson, a spokesman for NCOSE, contends that motivated Pornhub to take another action: removal of well over 10 million pornographic videos from their platform.

"… Although we are encouraged [by that], we are also holding strong to the fact that this is far from over and that Pornhub still has a whole lot more abuse and exploitation and criminality to account for and to face justice for," Roberson shares with One News Now.

Pornhub was the first target, but certainly not the only one, according to the NCOSE spokesman.

"This type of abuse and exploitation happens with well-known pornography production companies – and it has for decades," he emphasizes. "So, we hope that this serves not just as a turning point in accountability for Pornhub and [its parent company] MindGeek, but for the … pornography industry as a whole."

Porn companies might also find themselves in court because the underage children and trafficking victims who found videos posted on the sites could very well start filing lawsuits to recover damages. NCOSE yesterday applauded more than 40 survivors of abuse and sex trafficking for filing suit on Tuesday against Pornhub for its role in their exploitation. That lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
