Producers of sex films who manipulate and control actors, could be committing a criminal offence
The criminal offence of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour is rampant in the adult video / sex worker industry and many controlling sex film producers are guilty of it.
The criminal offence of Coercive behaviour is an act of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish or frighten their victim. Controlling behaviour is a range of acts designed to make a person subordinate and/or dependant by isolating them from sources of support. They exploit their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behaviour.
It is a serious criminal offence and imprisonment for the criminal act of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour is 5 years.
Coercive control in the sex film industry is rife. You only have to fear violence and feel alarm and distress on two occasions for this to amount to the criminal offence of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour. So many sex workers suffer psychological, physical, financial, emotional and sexual abuse at the hands of controlling sex film producers on a regular basis.
What is trending in porn videos can often depict what controlling sex film producers want from their sex actors. Many sex film actors would not agree to what they end up doing when the camera is rolling, due to the vile nature. Many porn workers are forced to do all sorts of fetish, extreme and violent style sex films. These are more lucrative to the controlling sex film producers and many sex actors are of course afraid and reluctant to perform in them.
Clients have told us that the sex film producers are renown for their violence against them, forcing them to partake in sex films that they do not want to.
Porn workers don't report sex film producers because of many reasons. The behaviours that sex film producers often portray amount to the criminal offences of harassment and Controlling and Coercive Behaviour.
The criminal offence of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour is very underused by police and the CPS, particularly in the sex worker and porn industry. This gives controlling sex film producers more oxygen.
The police underuse it and often don't give support to sex workers which cancels out reporting for the sex worker. Also, what puts sex workers off reporting is the societal stigmatisation, since it would be a waste of time, fearing disbelief and victim-blaming.
Also, due to the nature of the relationship, the sex worker may have been threatened with violence if they even think about seeking help or an escape. Many sex workers have a distorted sense of normality because of the mental powers that controlling sex film producers have over them.
