Donny's Ramblings

Constance: Porn and Human Trafficking

31 Comments

When I speak at “Porn and Pancakes” events all across the country, this is one of the videos we play.

Constance is a story about a girl in the Philippines victimized by Human Trafficking. It was created by Mr. J Medeiros and directed by Sam Sanchez of Stick Productions. It was produced by Ramses Jiminez of Legacy Street Productions.

It has inspired an international human rights movement called the “Constance Campaign.” Mr. J spearheaded the movement, and has partnered with Non-Profit’s like IamComing.org, XXXChurch.com, and HumanTrafficking.org.

In May 2007, Constance was featured on CBS Evening News in an expose’ on Internet pornography.

While the video doesn’t show anything, I’d still recommend parents not allow children under age 13 watch it. It may rile you a little. That’s what it’s intended to do…

Feel free to post this as a bulletin on your myspace if you see fit. To do so just copy and paste the code, which you can get by clicking this link and then copying the code over there on the right of the video where it says “embed”.

AFTER READING THIS ARTICLE AND WATCHING THE VIDEO PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT:

This website tells the story of Constance, the inspiration for the video. It begins like this:

I am Constance and this is my story…

I was a typical 13-year old girl in my small and poor village. My life was filled with helping my mother and siblings, doing chores, and spending free time with my friends. Lucky to be in school, my time was also spent doing homework for the simple education I was getting.

DISCLAIMER: Don’t get the wrong idea here. I personally don’t know anyone in the adult industry that did stuff like this. If you’d like to know what the majority of those in the porn world are like please click here and read the article I wrote for XXXChurch.

  1. I have that video permanently linked in the banner of my blog. It is a sobering reminder that porn is not a victimless sin.

    I have been really wrestling with the reality that I am helping exploit someone’s daughter, sister, wife when I watch porn. When I purchase porn I am paying so that young women can have her soul violated.

    It is the deadness in the eyes of the stripper I find most chilling. Their soul dead by the constant groping of lust filled men. Their essences defiled by men not wanting to love their hearts and soul, but to exploit them.

    When the Apostle Paul wrote that the wages of sin is death I can’t help but think it is the death of the soul for porn star, stripper, and consumer.

    • The problem is inherent in your statement: “… somene’s wife, sister, daughter…” Women are worth caring for on their own, not just in relation to some man that they are related to. Imagine that? A woman, worth being sad over, regardless of the fact that she’s a man’s this or that. So many people make this mistake when speaking. In fact, Porn Addict, there’s a video titled “Somebody’s Daughter” out there if you’d like to watch it.

  3. Years ago I had a vision. I saw this clearly. I saw a little girl about age 5, sitting leaning against a wall. She was wearing a dress, and her eyes looked as though all the life had gone out of her. And there was blood. She had been raped.
    Sorry to share that, but this video and reading that story brought it back to me. I don’t know why I had that vision, but DONNY I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE SPEAKING OUT AGAINST PORN and I think you will help a lot of people and save some little girls like that! Thank you for what you are doing to make people aware. Porn is NOT harmless fun and it can lead to hideous things.

  5. I’m curious. How is this intended to bring people closer to God?

  7. Randy in my case it drives me to pray harder.

  9. Well good for you Nancy Ostrich! That’ll make your world a safer, better place, won’t it? And it’ll probably stop those predatory lurkers who stalk the trusting, and stop the society that created those networks.

  11. Randy,

    You asked:
    “I’m curious. How is this intended to bring people closer to God?”

    In response I ask:
    I’m curious, who said anything about trying to bring people closer to God? Who said that was the goal of the video?

    Does watching TV or going to sports events or 25 million other things we could list here bring you “closer to God”?

    This video was made to bring attention to something that many people choose to overlook or pretend doesn’t exist. The church is just as guilty of ignoring this problem as any other, particularly those in it who want to JUST focus on issues that bring people “closer to God”.

  13. I’m an historian. I know who created those networks, and when people buy the products created by that society we indirectly perpetuate the very crime this video and website attempts to expose, and have I got a horror story for you. So let’s not bring people closer to God. And my apologies to Nancy, I must have woke up on the wrong side of my deleted blog today.

  15. I’m really sorry I shared that vision; even though it was something I saw clearly it was obviously wrong to share it. Donny could you PLEASE delete it? Thanks.

  17. Note to Randy- thanks for the apology. You did hurt my feelings a bit. I’m a wife, a Mom and a Grandma and have a job where I work with children. I don’t just stick my head down in the sand and pray. But I do believe that praying can make some difference.
    I come on this blog to encourage Donny because I am so thrilled by the change in his life. He is trying to do something good. I am proud of him. I have known him for a long time, I see that the change in him is real.

  19. Nancy,

    I like the guy too, but for different reasons. He’s been through a lot this past year, and I’m betting he’s learned a thing or two. I’m just picking at him to see what he’s learned so that I can learn also. I know he’s tough and can take my crap, but I’ll remember to be more civil to others in the future.

  21. I told Donny he could leave my comment about the vision. It was clear and vivid and it was years before there was even internet, and before I even knew much about the stuff that goes on.
    I’m so angry. I keep thinking of Constance and girls like her and wondering WHAT CAN I DO, except try to help people be aware.
    I also believe there IS power in intercessory prayer.

  27. I was watching God TV online and they were showing “The Call,” a huge gathering of Christians in Las Vegas. They were praying against human trafficking, slavery, child abuse, pornography, prostitution, etc. A former prostitute and child abuse survivor spoke. A man speaking about the selling and abuse of little girls and boys broke down crying. It was very powerful and heartbreaking. It is hard to comprehend that there is such a huge market for this stuff. You wonder how many people you run into every day who would pay to have sex with a little child. It is beyond horrible. He said some of the little ones can’t even control their bladders because they are raped so much. WHY DOES THIS CRAP GO ON? What a world we live in. I don’t know what to do to help; except try to raise more awareness of this hideous problem.

  29. I appreciate you for sharing your honesty. It truly is disturbing how many women get sucked into the business through manipulation, drug abuse, etc.
    what is disturbing is the fact that we look at these disturbing sex crimes right in front of us and don’t feel any remorse.
    If it was your wife or daughter being gang banged on drug, you would feel the hatred and anger and you would probably want to smash these guys.
    But when guys look at stunning hot porn star being gang banged, it’s whole different story.
    so we need to ask ourselves, Why do we think it’s okey for Porn stars to be abused over and over and die of suicide and drug overdose, but we would feel probably sick if someone handicapped is being abused..
    there are double standards when we judge what is criminal and whats not.
