…of pornography. Just recently I stayed in a hotel. You turn on the TV and before you know it, there’s a seductive young woman telling you that porn is available without any capacity to be caught. Can’t remember the exact words, but it was something like saying there’s no filters, and no one will know.
I like hearing about this hotel chain ceasing to offer porn. The owner is doing it of his own free will:
We wish to reiterate that plea here, however, by holding up to the American hotel executives the highly laudable actions of Petter Stordalen, owner of Nordic Hotels, one of Scandinavia’s largest chains. Mr. Stordalen, after becoming involved in international efforts to fight the horrific practice of trafficking women and girls into sexual slavery, announced that pornography would no longer be offered to his customers. In a public statement explaining his decision, he said: “The porn industry contributes to trafficking, so I see it as a natural part of having a social responsibility to send out a clear signal that Nordic Hotels doesn’t support or condone this.”
I think people ought to get more involved in getting rid of these things. Don’t go to government and get a law passed. But do figure out a way to send the message to business owners. I’d happily seek out and preferentially choose a hotel chain that got rid of their porn channel. In fact, I may start asking this when I book. You can too.by
