(Worthy News) – More than 700 survivors of sexual exploitation and advocates for victims of sexual harassment have submitted a letter to calling for a criminal investigation into major companies Pornhub and MindGeek, Headlines reports.

The letter was submitted last week and highlights the fact that acting with impunity, the pornography industry has enabled human trafficking, sex crimes abuse, violation of privacy rights, and child sexual abuse, Christian Headlines reports.

Calling for a criminal investigation into the two companies, the letter explains that sexual exploitation is encouraged through online depictions of non-consensual sexual activity. Moreover, as websites that permit such content are monetized, such exploitation could be considered human trafficking and criminal sexual violence, Christian Headlines said.

“MindGeek, which owns Pornhub and at least 160 other hardcore pornography websites, serves as a case study of corporate indifference regarding harm caused to women and children on its platform,” the letter reads. “It has received widespread international condemnation for facilitating and profiting from criminal acts including sex trafficking, filmed sexual abuse of children, and nonconsensually recorded and distributed pornography.”

Christian Headlines reports that the government and lawmakers in have already called the two companies in for questioning. “We have heard evidence that MindGeek continues to make available material featuring child sexual abuse material and non-consensual acts as one survivor testified to the Ethics Committee on February 19, 2021: ‘Thanks to Pornhub, today is day 1,292 that I have been naked on these porn sites,” the Canadian lawmakers reportedly stated.
