Survivor of Sex Trafficking Who Was Forced Into Porn Industry Demands U.S. Government Stop Letting Pornhub Profit Off Child Sex Crimes

A sex trafficking survivor who was forced to perform in porn videos and sexually assaulted by multiple men is demanding that Pornhub be held accountable for profiting off child sex crimes after numerous videos were posted on the site that is visited 115 million times every day.

In a post on the website of Exodus Cry, an international nonprofit organization committed to abolishing sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry, Jewell Baraka recounted how her father trafficked her into prostitution and later porn, starting when she was only 11 years old. The abuse lasted for several years until she was 17. She didn’t understand that the abuse she suffered as a child was not her fault. Baraka was 14 when she was first trafficked into porn.

“Watching Pornhub’s crimes being exposed on every phone and computer screen the last few weeks has been deeply satisfying. It feels like karmic payback for all the videos of underage, trafficked, and raped women and children that are still up on their website,” she wrote.

“More than just payback, though, this is the moment that justice begins for countless girls like me who were trafficked in porn. Finally we can say that we were trafficked in porn, finally people will understand.”

The trafficking that goes on within the porn industry has largely remained hidden, she said, celebrating that now it can no longer be denied or ignored.

“Every social issue has a moment when our culture becomes aware of it as a problem of our time. This is the moment when our culture finally sees the abuses within the porn industry as the urgent social issue it is.”

Heightened attention has been given in recent years to the dangers of pornography. Thus far, 15 states have passed resolutions labeling porn as a public health crisis and have highlighted its links to domestic violence and human trafficking.
