Quote of the Day

“The pornography markets for victims of trafficking have not received the attention that prostitution has. Yet, approximately one third of the victims of prostitution at Breaking Free in St. Paul Minnesota has been used in the production of pornography.

“In some parts of the world, centers of trafficking are also centers for the production of pornography. An example is St. Petersburg, where representatives from NGOs report that they have heard of many cases of women being forced to make pornography. Many of the women in prostitution in St. Petersburg have also been used to make pornography. They say the police will take complaints about the production of pornography only if children are used.”
