Young people in Colorado are learning a lesson—and one they are willing to share—about how to avoid becoming a victim of sex trafficking. Thanks to their exhaustive investigation, The Daily Beast has uncovered a hidden part of the web where young people are solicited for sex by sexual predators. As The Daily Beast’s reporting, joining forces with NuStream—the wholesaler of pornography—the nonprofit organization Penumbra, and Denver-based publisher Young Living, was able to investigate how teens can access hard-core adult content on porn sites that are vulnerable to people trafficking vulnerable children and young adults for sex.

The, a series of articles in part 1, and Part 2 this week, sheds a revealing light on how online, teen pornography is ripe for abuse, both in terms of violent acts against minors and in terms of sexual coercion.

Anonymity Doesn’t Equal Blamelessness

Experts say that the number of instances of advertising online for underage sex is underreported due to the ability to post online on a variety of dubious forums. Sex ads using the traditional “teen” URL, like links to pornography and advertisements for gay sex workers, are still prevalent on many adult-themed and mainstream pornography sites. Even better, websites like the YouPorn.com are packing in content specifically designed for minors, and therefore making it easier for boys and girls to trick themselves into thinking that porn would be appropriate for them.

“If you go to an adult, hardcore site, it is loaded with porn that is already geared toward you,” Matthew Kraft, the Executive Director of Penumbra tells The Daily Beast. And because most sites are meant for adult, hardcore adults, virtually all of it is already rated XXX+. “All the porn you’re looking at has a 13-18 year old rating.”

Another deterrent, says Kleiman, is that sites with one or two or even ten strikes against them, receive no special policing procedures. “This isn’t like Facebook, where you put in your profile and you can leave it alone and everybody will see it.” Because of this, he said, “it is become a playground for sexual predators, for sex traffickers.”

It’s estimated that in 2018, online sex trafficking of children under 18 was reported in over 8,000 distinct incidents in 143 countries, as tallied by UNODC (the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime). The exploitation of minors and vulnerable youth as sex workers, especially young girls, has been one of the biggest challenges in the area of sex trafficking, an issue that affects at least 30 million people in 64 countries. According to UNODC, there are more than 1.5 million people trafficked for commercial sex and child pornography.

“There are people specifically looking for underage people to drive them to sex work because of the psychological development that they see when they’re exposed to sexual imagery,” says Benedict Schneller, an internationally renowned psychologist. “They gain not just the skills to be sexually active, but the confidence to achieve orgasms.

“One of the things that young people don’t realize is that this exposure, even in a virtual world, impacts their brain so much that in some cases, they end up being more emotionally and sexually mature than children who haven’t seen pornography,” he says. Schneller has seen hundreds of young people, male and female, who have been raped or trafficked under the age of 18 and found that the survivors had experienced self-disgust from watching pornography—resulting in physical changes ranging from pimples to chronic insomnia.

The Young Life Online

Several websites like Young Living’s Young Life offer a byzantine array of advertisements for casual sex with teens, as well as full-blown sexual encounters with adults. While the sites are meant for adults, thousands of teens—a fraction of the kids seeking to become sex workers according to international sex trafficking reports—find their way to them.

The site provides “adult erotica” to users and you can “create your own sexual fantasies and share them with the world with a compelling story and captivating art.” It also offers education services and “Sex Warriors,” and the “sexual wellness channel” offers “educational programming, articles, and non-censored videos by health experts.”
