No more porn in Hilton hotels: The conservative sex-shaming lobby claims a major victory

The group that called for Cosmo to be covered up pressured the international hotel chain to dump pay per view porn.

From the article :

“Staying at a Hilton hotel and want to spice up your stay with some porn? You only have until July 1, 2016 to watch it through them; after that, pay-per-view porn will disappear from the worldwide chain’s television screens, a decision that’s being hailed as a major victory by conservative group National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE). You may remember them as the same group that recently launched a successful campaign to get Cosmopolitan magazine covered up in stores like Rite Aid because it, too, was tagged with the dreaded “porn” title by the group.

So what’s the problem? Can’t you just watch porn on your laptop or phone when you’re staying at a Hilton? Yes, you can, but the issue isn’t just about travelers being able to stream a skin flick while on vacation. It’s about how NCOSE’s framing of porn turns it from a form of entertainment enjoyed by millions into something that’s inherently harmful…

Whether or not you like to watch porn in hotels (or at home), you should be concerned about NCOSE’s increasingly successful attempts to lump all pornography together and their assumption that legally made pornography is de facto a drain on and danger to society. Their targets are broad and vast; who knows what media they might target next? ”
