“Porn hurts nobody.” “They do it because they like to do it.”

What the average porn consumer might not know is that the industry is filled with sexual violence, coercion, and exploitation.

Consider that while active porn performers rarely, if ever, speak out due to fear of being blacklisted in the industry or being discriminated against, many of those same performers end up speaking out on their real experiences once they leave the industry.
