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.
What is the criminal offence of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour in the sex industry?
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 and so many sex workers suffer psychological, physical, financial, emotional and sexual abuse at the hands of controlling sex film producers on a regular basis.
Harassment and the Criminal Offence of Controlling and Coercive Behaviour is very underused by police and the CPS, particularly in the sex worker and porn industry, which only gives controlling sex film producers more oxygen. The police underuse it and often don't give support to sex workers anyway and the sex worker may have been threatened with violence if they even think about seeking help or an escape.
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, exploiting their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behaviour. Imprisonment is 5 years and all policies are gender neutral and all victims of this type of harassment should receive the same access to protection and legal redress.
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 extreme fetish films or gang bangs and violent style sex films so that they are more lucrative to the controlling sex film producers and many sex actors are of course afraid and reluctant to perform in them. The controlling sex film producers are reknown, according to our clients, to abuse and threaten their sex video performers and subjecting them to violence, to keep them under their control to ensure that they get the sex film that they want from them.
