McKeganey, N. (1994). Why do men buy sex and what are their assessments of the HIV-related risks when they do?. AIDS Care, 6(3), 289-301. The Sex Buyer "The worthlessness of women as human beings is entirely clear when it is understood that pornography is a form of mass entertainment . . . . Pornography is the prostitution of the women in it, and it is a metaphysical definition of all women as whores by nature; so it is also the terror of being born to be used, traded, and sold. The substance of this terror—its details, its ambiance—is the pleasure, is the entertainment, for the men who watch. It is hard to imagine how much they hate us. " (Dworkin, 1993, p. 181) Pornography as Prostitution PORNOGRAPHY Sexual fantasy is “rehearsal for relationships” … If you image others as mere instruments of your gratification, you are literally “rehearsing” exploitative patterns of behavior towards others. The more you picture yourself either using others, or being used, the more such encounters will feel familiar and “normal.”

Pornography equals prostitution. The Truth about Sex Trafficking The success of the commercial sex industry and sex trafficking industries hinges on a consumer—the male sex buyer.

“Guys urinating and defecating on women; women with animals; men torturing and raping women… I’ve seen it all, and so have a lot of my friends. We started off right away with hardcore. It’s right there always in your face when you go to a lot of these movie download sites on the Internet.”

—Jason, Age 14, Toronto, Canada Conditioning the Future Generation Rohrer, F. (2008). “The Men Who Sleep with Prostitutes.” BBC News Magazine. Having visited prostitutes for 18 months, Pete says he was attracted while surfing on the Internet. “I’ve been leading up to it; using pornography and looking at various websites. Rather than being a fantasy it was someone you could have sex with. Illustration Prostitution for Mass Consumption “But hard-core pornography is real sex by definition, and the two sexual acts involved—the on-camera copulation, and the masturbation it enables—are interdependent: neither would happen without the other.

The whole point of a centerfold is her unattainability, but with hard-core porn, it’s precisely the reverse: the star isn’t just attainable, she’s already being attained, and the user gets to be in on the action.” Douthat, Ross. "Is Pornography Adultery? - Magazine - The Atlantic." The Atlantic. Oct. 2008. Web. 29 Nov. 2011. Farley, M. (2007). “Renting an Organ for Ten Minutes: What Tricks Tell Us about Prostitution, Pornography, and Trafficking Interviews with 854 women in prostitution in 9 countries . . . made it clear that pornography is integral to prostitution. In 9 countries, almost half (49%) told us that pornography was made of them while they were in prostitution. Forty-seven percent of our respondents were upset by tricks’ attempts to make them do what the tricks had previously seen in pornography. The average age of entry into prostitution in the U.S. is 13.* Thus it is likely that many prostituting adult females were once child victims.
