Many professional performers in pornography are sex trafficked into a hostile environment of sexual exploitation, forced labor and physical abuse.
Traffickers produce pornography of sex trafficking victims to diversify their profit and advertise victims for prostitution. Clients may also create their own pornography of victims.
Traffickers show pornography to sex trafficking victims to train them and desensitize them to the sex acts they will be forced to perform.
Porn users often seek to act out what they have viewed in pornography. Additionally, Porn users demand a constant stream of new, increasingly violent and fetishized content. In order to keep up with this demand, more women and children become prostituted and trafficked.
