Pornhub announces changes after report alleging videos of child sex abuse and rape

Montreal, Canada – Pornography website Pornhub on Tuesday outlined measures against illegal content on its platform after the New York Times reported finding videos depicting child sex abuse and rape on the site.

The paper asserted that among the 6.8 million new videos posted on the site each year, a majority “probably involve consenting adults, but many depict child abuse and non-consensual violence.”

Pornhub, the Times said, also lets users download videos directly from its site, which allows anyone to repost clips repeatedly and without limit.

“Today, we are taking major steps to further protect our community,” said a statement on Pornhub.

“Going forward, we will only allow properly identified users to upload content. We have banned downloads,” it added.
