No porn hotels
"There is nothing in the social environment right now that is more clearly a supporter of sexual and domestic violence against women and girls than pornography."-Chuck Derry

by Kathy Magnuson

You may not have pornography in mind when you think of your family's summer vacation or your girlfriends' weekend getaway. Think again.

Filthy Young Innocents-Their innocence couldn't grasp our desires so we schooled them in the disciplines of bang, suck and screw.

The description comes from a list of in-room adult pay-per-view pornography films available at Minnesota hotels and resorts. If you stay at one of these lodgings, whether you use the pay-per-view or not, you are supporting a business that benefits from the sexual exploitation and violent degradation of women and children and sometimes men. Research shows a high correlation between using pornography and acts of violence against women.

This pornography is beyond women or children with no clothes on:

Young Naughty and Willing-Nothing could prepare them for action this down right hardcore, not even their pretty young faces and willing attitudes.

"We are talking about mainstream pornography that sexually objectifies and exploits subjects while eroticizing domination, degradation and violence," according to Chuck Derry of the Gender Violence Institute. Contemporary pornography is not your grandpa's version. It is about "sexualizing violence and making violence sexy-the degradation and humiliation of women, and increasingly girls, [is becoming] a normal expectation of sexual relationships," Derry said. The tying of men's pleasure to women's pain "is being normalized in our culture."

Research shows distinct correlations between the production and consumption of pornography and sexual and domestic violence. The February 2012 Status of Women and Girls in Minnesota report by the University of Minnesota Humphrey School's Center on Women and Public Policy with the Women's Foundation of Minnesota finds that:

• 12 percent of Minnesota girls experience sexual assault by their senior year in high school.

• Nearly one in four of Minnesota's female college students have been sexually assaulted.

• 33 percent of Minnesota women have experienced a rape crime by midlife.


• Domestic violence is the second leading cause of homelessness among Minnesota women.

Stuffin the Sorority-These disobedient sorority sluts get punished the right way, with a hard, fast and furious pounding.

Several hotel chains have, in recent years, opted out of programming contracts that include pornography offered to customers' hotel rooms. An increasing number of hotel/motel chains and sole entities are being declared "clean" or "porn-free."

You have power in your pocketbook. When you make a reservation ask: "Do you offer pay-per-view adult entertainment?" If they do, you can make a statement by choosing not to stay or eat at that business and letting them know that you object to their policy. "Thank you for the information. Because of that I will make my reservation elsewhere."

Don't have your fun, family vacation include supporting:

Next Door Panties-We compiled the sexiest neighborhood sluts and pulled down their soft panties for some hot home alone action.
