Another thing that is very common in the production of pornography and now qualifies as a type of coercion under the TVPA, … is preying on drug-use or addiction. It’s now considered a non-violent and psychological coercion.

The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Act that was passed in 2008 added a new type of coercion that could be used in sex trafficking cases: preying on a victim’s drug use or addiction, whether pre-existing or created by the trafficker. …

Many testimonies of women used in the production of commercial pornography describe their drug and alcohol addictions and how the pornographers manipulated it.

One woman said, ‘I wanted to back out.’ She wanted to back out of doing her first pornography scene. In addition to being threatened she said, ‘I ended up taking shots of vodka to get through it. Porn producers provided alcohol and drugs for me.’

She continues: ‘As I did more-and-more scenes I abused prescription pills which were given to me, anything I wanted, by several doctors in the San Fernando Valley. The doctors knew I did porn but still gave me any prescription pills I wanted. All I had to do was tell them I needed them to get through the hardcore scenes.’

She goes on to talk about how she then became totally addicted and was given drugs. She said she often saw women actually being given injections on the set before they did some of the really hardcore, rough scenes.

And she said, eventually the women burn out from this. They become so, very, addicted. And she said: ‘When the women can no longer perform in the porn scenes because, no one wanted to hire me because my drug and alcohol problem was out of control.’ Her agent suggested that she go into [non-filmed] prostitution and to [live] stripping.

And so we see that women who get involved in the production of pornography are then moved onto [live] stripping or [non-filmed] prostitution, which can also be forms of sex trafficking.
