This article exposes how easy it is for pornographic videos posted without the subject of the video’s consent and/or pornographic videos depicting pedophilia and sexual assault are able to be shared on PornHub and other pornography websites. The subjects of the videos almost always experience shame and trauma when pornographic videos are posted of them without their consent. The article proposes three way to make PornHub a safe place: 1) Allow only verified users to post videos. 2) Prohibit downloads. 3) Increase moderation.
