As a part of our collaboration with the “White Ribbon Against Pornography Campaign” this week to raise awareness about the adverse effects of pornography and to help end the slavery of women and children here are a few of the latest statistics on porn in society.
This post is from the blog of Ex-porn star Shelley Lubben who founded Pink Cross Foundation. The group concentrates on outreach and evangelism of those in the porn industry, especially performers, and offers support to those wishing to leave the industry. When women or men in the porn industry contact Pink Cross for help, Shelley and her team send care personalized packages filled with encouraging cards, books, Bibles, CDs, beauty supplies, gift cards, and other practical supports along with financial assistance to help them in their recovery.
Current Porn statistics are offered here as they become available.
