Day 12: Porn and Sex Trafficking

It’s Day 12 of the Challenge, and today we continue to talk about the social impact of pornography.

The issue of sex trafficking is a hot topic today, but too often there is a sharp line drawn between pornography and sex trafficking. After all, many people look at pornography and don’t hire prostitutes.

But we need to understand that by supporting the porn industry with our money, our attention, and our visits to pornographic websites, we are contributing to the very industry responsible for driving the demand for sex trafficking. Furthermore, many victims of trafficking are used in pornography—because you can sell a person’s image over and over even faster than you can sell a person. Lastly, many of the tactics used by porn producers and creators are akin to sex trafficking.

As we strengthen our resolve to run from temptation, we need to remember pornography is a seedy industry that contributes to great injustice in the world. This should serve as yet another motivator to stay away from porn.
