Groupon website offers torture porn discounts

Groupon offers discounts and coupons for merchandise and discounts. According to Morality in Media, this includes discounts on tours of the torture porn studio, Kink.

Morality In Media has announced a national boycott of Groupon.com. According to a press release, this is because twice this year the coupon company has offered discounts on tours of the torture porn studio, Kink.  "Selling coupons supporting the degradation of women is as low as a publicly-traded company can go," said MIM executive director, Dawn Hawkins. "Groupon frames the tour as a historic one, comparing the opportunity to visiting the Smithsonian Institute because the building that houses Kink has an 'historic history in San Francisco,'" she said.

Kink advertises that they have "young sexy teens who are overwhelmed and outnumbered...who need to learn a lesson by multiple men," according to Morality in Media, as well as women being "bound, whipped, objectified and humiliated. They are immobilized, caged and humiliated as objects."  Kink also advertises women "suspended and tied in rope bondage...tormented beyond all reason," as well as women "naked, tied up, bound, punished, exposed in public...who are taken to public bars for public humiliation..."

Kink, which sells porn videos and offers live online torture porn performances, also notes on its site that, "Girls are also pulled in and out of cages, their tongues clamped, their bodies pinned, and their arms and legs strapped." They also claim to employ "contraptions used in countries such as China for torture" as well as machines, water, metal, wood, electrodes, hooks, needles, and urination, all for the sexual persecution of women and "young teenage girls."

This week, Morality in Media asked its supporters to write Groupon urging that the company stop supporting Kink.

According to the group,Groupon responded by defending Kink, saying, "We thoroughly vet the businesses we feature...Fortunately, this business has proven to be a responsible member of their community."

"Groupon should be thinking of their wider commercial audience, most of which, unlike Groupon, would not support torture and humiliation of women and girls for the sexual enjoyment of disturbed men," said Hawkins. "But since Groupon not only seems to support Kink, but is happy to profit from the torture of women, we have called for a national boycott," she added.

A special "Boycott Groupon Project" . There boycott supporters may also email all top Groupon Executives.

Morality in Media says that it focuses on opposing pornography and indecency through public education and the application of the law.
