ACTION: Call on Congress to Investigate Pornhub!

This is what we’ve been working towards. The tipping point in our war. Pornhub will soon fall. We need your help right now though. The next week will make a big difference!

Pornhub profits off of the abuse of hundreds, likely thousands, of victims of child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, rape, and non-consensually produced pornography uploaded to their website.  

Survivor Rose Kalemba broke the silence by speaking to the BBC in a groundbreaking expose earlier this year and now more survivors have come forward in this investigation in the New York Times by Nicholas Kristof. One told him, “Pornhub became my trafficker,” and said, “I’m still getting sold, even though I’m five years out of that life.”

The Times reports, “Yet there’s another side of  [Pornhub]: Its site is infested with rape videos. It monetizes child rapes, revenge pornography, spy cam videos of women showering, racist and misogynist content, and footage of women being asphyxiated in plastic bags. A search for ‘girls under18’ (no space) or ‘14yo’ leads in each case to more than 100,000 videos. Most aren’t of children being assaulted, but too many are.”

Dani Pinter, our Senior Legal Counsel, who is featured in the Times piece, commented to me today that many of the victims she has interviewed are suicidal as a result of Pornhub’s criminal exploitation and monetization of their rape.

Justice for survivors requires that this impunity ends now.

Contact your Members of Congress NOW! This will take you 1 minute. Look what we accomplish when we get just a few of us speaking up. YOUR VOICE MATTERS!

Please join the National Center on Sexual Exploitation in urging Congress to:  

  1. Investigate Pornhub and #ShutItDown 
  2. Rescind CDA 230 Immunity 
  3. Pass the EARN IT Act (S. 3398 / H.R. 8454) 

Email Congress

Please take a minute to do the following as well:

  • Share the New York Times article wherever possible. If posting on Twitter, thank the author @NickKristof!
  • Comment directly on the NYT article to show public support of the movement. Pro-exploitation trolls are already trying to take over the narrative.
  • If you, or someone you know, has been exploited online via Pornhub, Twitter, Reddit, etc., please contact us. We may be able to help you seek legal action.
  • Consider a donation to grow this movement.

Your donation to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation today will go towards assisting survivors of Pornhub’s abuses file lawsuits to hold them accountable.
