Having done research on the harms of pornography for years, I am accustomed to reading and hearing some pretty depraved and depressing stuff. But nothing quite prepared me for this video testimony.

Be warned: The audio testimony on this video shares very graphic stories of sexual violence. Listener discretion is advised.

This video comes from the fine folks over at PornHarms.com. “Naideen” is not the woman’s real name, but you can pray that God will help her to heal from the brutal violence she suffered.

This testimony offers a startling picture of what happens behind the scenes on many pornography sets. Granted, it is an extreme example, but extreme only in certain respects. Testimonies from those who are or were in the mainstream porn industry reveal similar stories of drug abuse, disease, rape, violence, and manipulation.

Listening to this testimony I was reminded of the song “Constance” by Christian hip hop artist Mr. J. Medeiros. He paints a vivid picture of the supply and demand chain that connects the violent underworld of pornography to the seemingly harmless activity of clicking on seductive images from the privacy of your home.

Do we really understand the consequences of our actions when we sit down at our computers?

      I don’t understand why she wasn’t strong enough to get out immediately. Every woman I know wouldn’t stand for that and would call the Police etc. It makes me think she claiming “victim” now when she went along with it for so long. I guess it would make more sense if she was an avid drug user who clinged to her husband for her next fix, but seeing how she had a full time job, she couldn’t be too much of a tweaker. At any event, it’s a sad story.

        @CE User – It is startling when you think about the victimized not fighting back. It is fairly common with domestic abuse victims to stay with their abuser, even in cases of sexual abuse. Of course, as she continues to tell her story, it will be interesting to hear more details.

      Like she stated, “He did not seem as bad as other guys.” She apparently had a history of abuse at the hands of men. Women who endure such things from an early age often have the same type of mentality that she demonstrated. Also, it is all too common for a woman to leave an abusive relationship and get caught up with someone who is the same or worse than the one before.
