A STORY OF DENIAL OF TRAFFICKING/PIMPING


If you would like to listen to this in audio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBEpTTr_Fkw

I'm inviting you to see what someone who was trying to tell America she was being "trafficked" in 1980 looked like back then compared to now.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EJz79sVg4U   Now keep in mind Linda was telling the world she was forced to make a film as well as into prostitution at the hands of her husband and men in organized crime.  

Linda Lovelace was in "Deep Throat", an XXX adult film made in the 1970's.  Please understand THERE IS A DIFFERENCE between someone who is being "pimped" vs. someone who is engaging in independent sex work vs. someone who is connected to criminally controlled sex work.  Linda was not a prostitute.  Linda was not doing porn as a form of sexual expression.  Linda was not being pimped out by some street corner pimp.

Linda was being "trafficked" in connection with the mob of the her day.  https://af11.wordpress.com/2009/06/20/fbi-files-show-wide-mob-owned-deep-throat-investigation/  Now we didn't have "trafficking" laws back in the 1970's.  There was nothing on the books then.

All law enforcement had in the tool box was a case for "obscenity".   So when people were coming to Harry Reems defense on the obscenity charge in this case - little did they know at the time law enforcement was trying to build a case against the men who were responsible for what happened to Linda - which was she was forced to be raped on film.  The reason I'm showing you this is because I would like you to decide for yourself if there is a modern form of this happening today in connection with James Deen and Kesha's case against Dr. Lucas.  Please keep in mind that we're also talking about Sony.  There is no way to cover what I know in one blog post.  This is part 1 in a series so I can show you the connections between many cases that show a pattern of behavior.


Now Linda was married to Chuck, so he was called her "husband".  When she got away from him, he started "managing" Marilyn Chambers.  Here's Marilyn giving an interview at that time -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z5crCMOiEM  Notice she's a very attractive woman who was standing up in front of the cameras of the day saying "Chuck is a wonderful man to me and he's bringing me to your attention for your enjoyment".  (I'd like you to note that J Lo is doing a song about female empowerment produced by Dr. Lucas right as Kesha is crying "rape".   Please note we have both Lady Gaga and J Lo saying "nothing wrong with the way he treats me.)

Now Linda was really the first adult star who was truly made into a type of "rock star" for us back in the 1970's as a "sexual revolution" in she not only made the film, but she would act like she really wanted sex all the time.  That was because behind the scenes, Chuck coached her to be acting like she wanted to act this way when in public.  If you'd like to read more about her story in detail the book "Ordeal" is on Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/Ordeal-Linda-Lovelace/dp/0806527749

When asked why she came forward with "such a fantastic story"  - her response was she was "trying to warn Marilyn" about not only what Chuck was really like, but also she could come to her if she wanted help to leave him.

So when she was warning Marilyn via the press she "might need help to leave and she could call her" she was also saying the people might not believe her AND they might refuse to help her because she's in the adult industry.  Which was the case then.   Notice these women were giving interviews on TV and no one seems to have a gun pointed at their heads forcing them.  They aren't handcuffed or chained.  They're giving TV interviews.  So when audiences were trying to understand what Linda is saying when she was saying she was "forced" to make the XXX film, and her fears about what Chuck might be doing to Marilyn, this is what they're seeing is Marilyn also saying "no one is being forced here".   But what no one seemed to ALSO notice was Chuck was standing behind Marilyn off camera also when she was giving interviews.  In fact, not one interview was given by Marilyn without Chuck there behind her either on or off camera.  Meaning did the interviewers really expect her to say otherwise with Chuck standing right there?

(Which by the way - it's wonderful to applaud Lady Gaga for getting up and singing about abuse and rape.  But I want to say to her is why isn't someone been arrested for that assault?  What because of money?  Career?  Yep more than one way to be a whore ladies and sell our your sisters.  Linda however stood up and pointed the finger at her rapist in public with the whole world against her.  Bravo Linda.)

Also realize Linda represented a new "archetype" for women.  Up until the adult industry, the birth control pill, the sexual revolution, women were either housewives with kids, career women who were usually not married and who the world tended to kind of look at as lesbians, or "ladies of ill repute" like Mae West, or "Peaches" played by Marlene Dietrich, who was a "hooker with a heart of gold".  Linda had been built up to be the "third archetype" of a woman who made her living in the sex industry using her sex as a commodity.

The idea of a woman who COMBINED sex and work together as a career was a whole new TYPE of woman.  In the series "Mad Men" when they talked about "are you Marilyn Monroe or Jackie Kennedy?"   Now here was Linda presenting a whole other type which prompted the group COYOTE, or Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics, about how we had the right to do with our body as we please with abortion, our sexuality, and even about how to make money.

Being she was truly the "poster child" of the porn industry at that time being at the top of her career and the most recognized porn star - audiences again are scratching their heads going "how could she be forced?"

Back then what she did was like if President Obama being the first African American president suddenly stood up in the press and said "I was being forced to accept being President".  It just rocked people's minds - and no one was buying it at the time either.   I mean look at the guy - a violent vicious pimp she's describing?


Linda's story was really conflicting with a character they had been hearing about as a "pimp" back then.   Contrast this interview with Chuck we as the public see him giving and then contrast with what the public thinks of when you say "pimp" or "trafficker"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDOdNSiFvDw 

Now contrast that with the stereotypical image one would think of back then as a "pimp".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_aDNj0dS8E  This is why people were confused about what Linda was saying.  But also people didn't understand that a street pimp and someone who is connected with organized mob activity is going to look different.  Now what's the best way to hide?  In plain sight.  

I was at home then watching this case unfold in front of my eyes.  I was born in 1960, so in 1976 I was 16 years old.  In 1980, I was 20 years old when she came out with the book "Ordeal".  In this book she was claiming the film, which was a comedy by the way, was financed by the mob first of all.

Then on top of saying it was financed by them, she was saying Chuck, who was her husband at the time of filming this, was forcing her to shoot it by pointing a gun at her from off-camera.  She told stories of him kicking her with his cowboy boots until she was black and white to get her to do the film, as well as turn tricks after filming.

He would coach her on "how to be the greatest porn star of all time is to act like you really like to screw anyone all the time - that you just can't get enough".  So he would take her into bars and then have her "take all comers" to show what a sex fiend she was.  Of course it also got him an audience of people who would then say she was a "willing victim".

Linda also talked about how her mom and dad came to the door of their apartment asking if she was okay because they could sense something was wrong.  Chuck was supposedly behind the door demanding she answer it completely nude.  Then to tell them "I'm just fine".  Otherwise, he threatened to kill both of her parents if she didn't act like she was there consensually.



There's a few things you have to understand about the times back then.  First, that all XXX films were not allowed to be played in "regular" theaters anyone could go to.  They used to only be able to be seen in "adult" theaters which were usually in back alleys in bad neighborhoods.   They were also done in "super 8" which is like a home camera.  This film was done in regular film stock also.  What made it unusual and proved the mob ties was that every theater owner had been "told" to air the film, and to clear off any other movies but this one.   They were trying to make sure they made their money fast before the censors could come in and shut it down.   As it was, Harry Reems, the male actor in the film was arrested on "obscenity" charges.   This was what would normally happen if you tried to play an XXX film in a regular theater back in the 1970's.  http://www.thefileroom.org/documents/dyn/DisplayCase.cfm/id/1115

The biggest thing was the audiences kept revolting and calling her a liar for a couple of main reasons.  One being they couldn't believe that some man would beat her, rape her, and then put her on camera and film in in an XXX film doing things she didn't want to do, with everyone on the set just allowing it to happen.

Well contrast that with stories which have come out now in the Bill Cosby case where women say they were taken back to his dressing room right on the set during filming of "The Cosby Show", and then coming out clearly drugged and upset, with no one on the set reacting or saying anything like "what's wrong?" to them even.

What people didn't understand was regular films are just shot and they can get anyone to shoot a regular film.  But to get someone to film an adult movie, which could get them arrested for it back then, wasn't so easy.  The adult industry was a very tight knit "family" type of system for which I found the movie "Boogie Nights" a fantastic explanation of how the industry grew and developed over the years because of technology advances.

It showed how Burt Reynolds was basically "the man" to go to for adult films, with everyone being in a family type of relationship.  Not like today where anyone with a camera can shoot a porn and post it online.   I explain this because think how people don't like to "get involved" in a domestic dispute.  Now wrap that up in if you come forward and support Linda's story - you've just kissed your career in the industry goodbye.

Chuck being the smart man he was, had gone on to manage Marilyn Chambers almost immediately after Linda escaped.   He thus had her running around talk shows then insisting "oh no I have no problems like that with Chuck" and "I've never seen him do anything like that".  While at the same time I'm seeing her  come forward in an Narcotics Anonymous meeting a few years later in 1985.  My point being Chuck DID NOT DEFEND HIMSELF.  He let Marilyn, and others who wanted to protect their careers, DO IT.

In fact, my first NA meeting I heard her explain Chuck had drugged her, got her hooked, and then she just agreed to do whatever he wanted - so no argument for her to have with him to see the bad side Linda saw.   I can say that now that she's passed without breaking the confidence of what she shared with me back then.

As for the others on the set, are they going to admit to the press "oh yeah I just let him do it and didn't go call anyone and didn't stop him".

Linda was having audiences deny her story, the other people on the set deny her story, Marilyn deny her story, and guys who had gotten head from her in one of those bars while she "acted like she totally was into it", was denying she was being trafficked by Chuck into prostitution, porn and stripping so ALL were "denying she was coerced".  Again, put into perspective here we didn't have the word "trafficking" back then, nor any laws.  So it wasn't like the government could come in and charge the film makers with "trafficking".

I'm showing you how the mob/criminal operations, not street pimps, deny what's going on.  Now, last December APAC, or the Adult Protection Advocacy Committee, held a panel on "exiting the porn industry".  I asked if Sex Workers Anonymous could present at that panel.  Keep in mind we've been helping men and women leave the porn industry since 1987.  I have interviews up at www.leavingtheliferadio.com with women who have been in Playboy and Hustler who belong to our program.   We are not a group like Shelley Lubben.  We are not religious, and have Jewish, Buddhist, and atheist members.  So please explain to me why James Deen, their person in charge refused to have a member of our group come present on how SWA can help someone exit the porn industry?  Was he trying to hide something?

He ignored me completely when I was asking why we could not present at that panel.  So I told him "I think you are making a mistake that I need your group to present us as an option.  If anything, the fact you don't present us will be noted as a form of deliberate concealment of us from women in the porn industry.  Now why would you not want them to know about us James?"  To which he responded he wanted to "meet me for coffee to discuss it".  I did not meet with him because frankly I was getting a "bad vibe".  One that I get when I sense a predator around.

So I declined his offer.  I have the emails on file showing this if anyone wants to see the exchange.  My point being James was deliberately concealing our group from the industry as a means to exit the industry.  Why are we different than groups like Shelley Lubben?  Because we acknowledge that sometimes to leave the industry requires more than just another job.  Sometimes it means escaping really bad dudes that's why.  Dudes like the mob that Linda was having to get away from.

Let me show you something about Chuck Traynor people of the 1970's weren't seeing.   Hmm.  That's interesting - not one video on Youtube about how Chuck would market his guns using topless models.  Strange.  Well here's a reference to him anyway - https://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=8&f=22&t=210119 and another about him and his "wife Marilyn Chambers"  http://www.handgunforum.net/general-discussion/4878-nevadan-work-early-age-gun-shop-owner-had-career-his-sights.html  In fact, it appears Chuck had a third wife in porn http://www.vegasretro.com/vegas_visitor/38_bo_vv.html Criss "Bo" Bozlee.  So it would appear that maybe, just maybe, the gun rights people don't exactly want it validated that Chuck was holding a gun to Linda to make "Deep Throat" for reasons that are way bigger than her story.  Reasons like gun control.  But I digress.

I used to talk to Marilyn when she first got clean in NA.  I told her I couldn't stay clean and remain in the sex industry and warned her that she may also have a hard time herself if she tried to stay in the adult industry.  She insisted she was "done" at first.   Caused quite a battle in fact when she at first said she wanted to retire from the industry in order to stay clean during our conversations in 1985 in those NA meetings, at coffee, etc.  Finally, Marilyn insisted to me that she could do it WITHOUT being nude.  We argued.  I told her a "porn is a porn whether you're nude or not".  Because to me it's not about the nudity.  It's about the people, the culture, and about whether I'm truly doing something from my own heart or being coerced.  Whether I'm surrounded by people who truly love and care for me - or who are exploiting me.

So I sat back and watched as a few of those first films had her "introducing" other girls who would do the nude and sex scenes while she remained clothed.  In fact, the first film I remember her doing after this argument we had was her prancing around in a corset introducing other young actresses' who would then do the hardcore stuff.

Then I saw her topless.

Then I saw her nude.

Then I lost touch with her entirely.  The men around her refused to let me keep speaking to her.  I was a "bad influence" I guess in that I was warning her about not staying clean this way.

It seems she didn't stay clean.  Her body was found recently with pain killers in her blood stream. http://www.today.com/id/30194893/ns/today-today_entertainment/t/adult-film-star-marilyn-chambers-dies/ 

I'm sure it's a complete coincidence that another actress has been found dead from pills who was charging James Deen with rape.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/porn-star-amber-rayne-accused-james-deen-dead-31-article-1.2588111

The allegations of James raping these women could have something to do with why he wouldn't want anyone within the industry to know about our organization.  Why?  Because we know all too well that it can be impossible to leave the industry sometimes when you have no other source of income, and certain people know where you live.  I didn't have some man running around behind me with a gun pointed at my head 24 hours a day back when I was in the industry - but coerced I was.  Because I knew what these men were capable of, and I knew they knew where I lived, where my mother lived, and where my grandmother lived.  I knew they knew my habits in that I walked my dog a couple of times a day.   They knew my "regulars" who knew my phone number and address so moving would have been a waste of time unless I was willing to ditch my regulars also.  They knew my friends and where they lived - so unless I wanted to walk away from all my friends they would know where I was living and my phone number.  I mean leaving was a big deal for me.

I had to move my whole family, and I had to leave every single one of my regulars, and my friends, and anyone who could know what I looked like (I changed my appearance when I left so I couldn't be recognized walking down the street), what car I drove (a woman who was blond like me who was driving my car was plowed into by an illegal alien going 100 mph who told the cops he was paid to do it when arrested at the scene), where I lived (a man showed up at the motel room I was staying at supposedly and the woman I let stay there said the man wasn't leaving so she called the cops.  He pulled a knife on the cops and refused to leave or disarm himself so they shot him dead.)

So WHY possibly would James Deen NOT want anyone from our organization presenting at APAC on how to exit the porn industry?  Because to my knowledge we're the only ones who advocate a complete breaking away from everyone and everything connected to it.  I saw Marilyn talked back into it by people offering her large sums of money and insisting she didn't even have to disrobe.  I also saw her dying with drugs in her system.

I however am still clean.  I also don't have friends around me forcing me to stand next to the man who raped me, http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/02/06/james-deen-is-back-in-porn-why-has-the-adult-film-industry-forgiven-the-accused-serial-rapist.html    Which by the way NO she was "not forced by contract to stand next to the man who raped her".  That is a lie.  When one person breaches a contractual agreement by physically harming you and breaking the law - the contract becomes null and void.  The court will not uphold she breached that contract.  So whoever is advising Stoya is LYING to her.  I know people who would have explained to her how to not be forced into doing this and how she would not be sued for breach of contract.  But then again I'm not being allowed to be near these women to tell them this am I?

I will make a caveat here.  I do know many of these type of men do have judges who are "friends" with them because they make political contributions to them the women, or victims, don't.   So I will say that in a lower court, if you have the wrong lawyer, then like Kesha, yes you may have a judge actually violate the law by telling you that you have to continue being in the presence of a man who raped you whether proven or not.

However, in that case I would say appeal to a higher court because I have seen many a case by a corrupt judge can be straightened out by the Supreme Court number one.  Number two, one needs to examine if the lawyer working for these women is not being bought off or intimidated to not give the proper defense of her case.  Which I also have seen with attorneys.  I am working on a case right now where an attorney lied to a trafficking victim and claimed her prostitution record which had been faked against her by the cops had been expunged and she no longer needed my help.

However, suspecting a rat I went and ran her records myself to find she had not had her record expunged.  Meaning the attorney lied to her.  Why?  Because she's not the one paying his bills - her traffickers are.  So I am going to add that yes a lower court judge MIGHT rule you have to work next to a man who raped you.  Which I will then say one needs to carefully then examine who this judge is, who your attorney is, and to appeal to a higher court until it's straightened out.

Nor do I have people in my life who would applaud me being raped on film.   http://www.thefrisky.com/2015-12-02/adult-film-actress-kora-peters-comes-forward-about-being-raped-on-set-by-james-deen/

Nor am I in an industry who won't stand up and defend me on general principle either.  http://fusion.net/story/258486/avn-porn-oscars-consent-panel-rape-stoya-deen/

By the way, I had asked the AVN organizers if they would allow me to distribute a booklet to women in the industry about why they did NOT want to move to Nevada to work in the porn industry there.  Which I believe James is involved in a plot to move the industry there also by the way.  I will write more on the plot to move the industry to Nevada in another blog post.  What I'm trying to show here is how the industry covers itself when there is a criminal element behind the cameras.

Which includes by the way years from now people saying "well she couldn't have been too upset about it because she stood there on stage with the guy" who won't hear her defense about being told she had to do it because of a contract.

No these people have years of knowing how to defend themselves behind them.  They know the game way better than some actress, or a singer like Kesha, or even Lady Gaga, whose only been in the game a few years, if that, and who is being kept shielded from those who have left they can't control like our members.   This by the way is the best defense I can think of for there to be a union brought into this industry that speaks on behalf of these female performers.  

Because right now I challenge you to find me one lawyer in Nevada or California willing to defend these women against their attorney who defends them.  

JLo taught us how she'd deal with it in "Enough" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0278435/

ADDICTS TAKING HOSTAGES TO A NEW LEVEL

When I was new in recovery, I used to hear that "addicts don't do relationships - we take hostages".  What I've seen today takes that concept to a new level.  Today I saw an "Intervention" with Jimbo.  Jimbo was a man on drugs. http://www.aetv.com/shows/intervention/season-9/episode-6

In this show, he refused to consider treatment.  So I watched as the people in this room threatened to put him in jail.  Now I've watched interventions for 30 years and I've seen threatening to put someone in jail if they don't go into treatment.   I'd like to remind people that we are living in America where we have the right to control our bodies, our lives, and even decide if we want medical treatment or not.

This is still our right I think to choose what treatment we want to pursue for addiction.  I would like to add that I've been clean from a $2000 cocaine habit since 1985 AND that I did this without one single day in professional treatment or even detox.   So please don't hand me that someone can't get clean with only the 12 steps behind them because not only have I gotten clean without treatment, but I know a lot of other people who have also.

But this was a whole horse of another color in that there was a uniformed police officer standing in the room when this threat was being made.  Jimbo asked the officer what the charge would be.   The officer then told him "threatening harm".  Well at that point, Jimbo agreed to treatment because he didn't have a logical choice.

Now I was trained how to not only get clean, but how to work with others.  I have trained drug counselors.  I have sponsored many people I can name off the top of my head that not only are out of prostitution today years later, but also clean from drugs.  So I know how to get someone clean.  I also know the difference between "not enabling someone any longer" and threatening to illegally deprive someone of their freedom.

Watching this show, NOW I understand why in the 1980's, 1990's, and early 2000's I have been providing continuing education for drug counselors, and interventionists BASED ON MY TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS - and now suddenly the professional treatment community is not only acting like they don't know me - but they've actively shut us in Sex Workers Anonymous teaching that you can't stay clean long term in sex work have been shut out.

Back in the 1980's, 1990's, and 2000's people working in treatment KNEW you could not get someone clean while still in the sex industry.  People in recovery KNEW the rooms of AA were full of these womens' "john" and the dad the molester who abused them as kids, and that's why they KNEW that you had to separate these women out of those rooms to get them clean.  

We also would train interventionists how to get someone to AGREE to go into treatment.   Okay the classic example we know of the family being around the addict reading a letter about their feelings?  That was to shock them out of denial about how their actions were harming the people they loved so they would then say "oh wow I have a problem and I need to do something about it" and make a CHOICE to enter treatment.  Then if not, they then walk away.  Simply walk away and withdraw all support, and all enabling.  They are then told "we'll speak to you again when ready to enter treatment" to MOTIVATE them into wanting treatment.

What I witnessed with Jimbo was his family was put in that room to railroad him into being left with no choice but to enter treatment or have a permanent criminal record for "making threats".   That's not "motivation" - but in fact a form of taking a hostage against their will.

We didn't train them that "well if they refuse you make them go against their will".  Why?  Because we knew that if you did that - then they wouldn't get clean!  The intervention training I went to and learned about was how to convince someone they wanted to go into treatment NOT threaten to deprive them of their freedom if they reach that final moment and choose another option.

But right after watching Jimbo being threatened with an arrest to force him into treatment, I then watched Christina.  http://www.aetv.com/shows/intervention/season-11/episode-1   Christina was a beautiful young lady who was then threatened into treatment with a psychiatric hold.  My mouth was just open in shock watching what was happening to her.  Everything made sense after watching these shows back to back.  Because I have been trying for the life of me to figure out why shows like Dr. Drew are trying to pretend Sex Workers Anonymous doesn't even exist.

Why sites like www.intherooms.com refuse to allow our meetings on their site - but allow NA and AA.  I'm sorry but we're just like any other 12 step program so WHY are we being discriminated against?   I'll tell you one reason I know now why - because we know when someone is peeing on our leg and trying to convince us it's raining.

What I witnessed today with Jimbo was NOT intervention.  It was NOT recovery.  What I witnessed was the hostage taking of Jimbo.  I personally believe that any treatment center who took Jimbo into recovery is guilty of kidnapping.  Which is WHY the name of that treatment center was not listed in the show in my opinion.

Instead what was listed was that Jimbo was "disruptive" after 25 days of treatment which in my opinion means he woke the fuck up and realized he had been forced into that facility against his will and he fought back for his freedom.  I do not believe he was "resisting treatment" but resisting being held captive but people who had no idea what they were doing.

Look I have grown up first being molested as a child.  I have been sexually abused by teachers and coaches as well as psychiatrists.  I have been raped three times - each time by a man I knew well.  Each time by a man who said "prove it bitch".  Each time by a predator who hid behind "respectability" whether it was a degree, a position of power, or even wealth.  So I don't care how big this show is.  I remember getting clean, and helping other addicts, and prostitutes, to get clean before this show was even on air.  I know what I'm doing and I'm not doing it for money or ratings.

We've seen over and over again with things like the Franklin Omaha scandal how predators hide behind wealth, fame and prestige.  Just as I saw how the CIA hid behind Chuck Barris and the "Dating Game" to make women disappear overseas during Iran Contra.  They also made sure if I went and told anyone what I saw that I'd be the one locked up on a psychiatric hold which is EXACTLY what happened to me when I sought help for my anxiety attacks I developed after witnessing women behind made to disappear on diplomat planes one day.  Trust me, they know exactly how to make someone sound "nuts" in order to cover up the tracks of what they're up to - and they do it well.

Which is why I've been fighting during this whole movement for people to know they can call our hotline and be believed because I've seen the same things too.  I know well how it sounded to say things like "Bill Cosby drugged and raped me on the set of the Cosby show".  Only in our case there was dollars attached is the only difference between us.  The only difference is that Cosby picked actress's rather than prostitutes - that's it.  That said, imagine if these actresses were having a hard time being believed - then imagine our our members have a hard time being believed with a history of drug addiction, mental illness and prostitution.

These men know exactly what they're doing also.   I know because the year I was learning about sex addiction from Roy K., founder of Sexaholics Anonymous, I remember being invited to a board meeting of SA.  When I walked into that meeting I remember stopping, looking around, and then breaking down into sobs.

The men asked me "what's wrong?"  To which I replied "looking around this room I see the pillars of society - what chance would I have to defend myself?"  Meaning I was looking into a room full of priests, professors, doctors, lawyers, reporters, judges, etc., in that room of Los Angeles that day.  A room I would not have been given access to be on the inside of unless Roy had invited me trying to convince me prostitution was a "lust addiction" because of HIS belief it was about sex with us and my belief it was not.  (Just like a true sex addict - trying to convince me I "enjoyed" what happened when I was in sex work.)

When I broke down crying in that room - the men came over and asked me why I was so upset.  I told them it was because I was looking at the "pillars of our society" who I knew if I tried to accuse them of my abuse, as I have, they'd totally make mincemeat out of me in court.  Just like my father who went on to become a top lawyer in Idaho for many years doing just that to protect himself from my accusations about his abuse.  Then when I'd go on TV and speak about his abuse of me as a child - he then gathered his "audience" to tell them what a "troubled young woman I was in need of professional help".  Well of course I was "in need of professional help" being raised by a man who sexually abused me as a child and then said "what's wrong?  I'm just trying to show you I loved you" when I'd run away or fight back.

That's when the men came over to me and said "why do you think we got these jobs?"  I was speechless.  Then one of them reached out and said "We took these jobs so we CAN DEFEND ourselves when our victims come to accuse us."  I was devastated.  They rigged the system and THEY KNOW IT.  They just admitted they gravitate to these jobs to then protect themselves from our accusations.

Meaning what I saw today was Jimbo being forced into treatment.  Which means these people connected to the show "Intervention", which are the same people who film "Catfish", and "8 Minutes", and "Jails", and the same people who are friends with the legal brothel owners, and friends with Sheldon Adelson, the owner of the Review Journal paper who sent Abigail Goldman, a reporter, to tell me to my face both I, and Sex Workers Anonymous, was "blacklisted" from ever appearing in his media, and also is the creator of http://www.adelsonfoundation.org/AFF/leadership.html

Yes Adelson funds drug treatment also while promoting the "prostitution agenda" spoken of in my earlier blogs.  http://www.businessinsider.com/sands-macau-prostitution-2012-6   It means that when I had these same people threatening me with a 5150 when I tried to file a complaint against two officers who falsely drug a woman out of her private home when she said she no longer wanted to work as a prostitute for this criminal operation, and then who when I was called in to help her break free of this type of threat which they could clearly carry out being she has two fake prostitution charges on her case with no booking videotape of her arrest because it never happened - they had the absolute power to cart me off for 72 hours for a psychiatric hold like they threatened me with to get me to back off talking to her to help.

They have all the people to frame me - right down to the "interventionist" who I have wondered why he's refused to speak to me when I tried to speak to him about WHY he was continuing to use the ABSOLUTELY WRONG method to intervene on a prostitute (doubt me - watch "Intervention" and you'll see that every time they try this threat method of intervention on a prostitute that she runs off and refuses treatment EXCEPT when they falsely used a 5150 on a woman I also saw on this show.

Meaning when they used the wrong method on her and then instead of admitting it was wrong - they then escalated to a false 5150 charge against her to force her into treatment).  Look how easy it is to have someone drug off http://www.treatmentadvocacycenter.org/storage/documents/Initiating_Court-Ordered_Treatment.pdf

Take a real good look at Jeff, the interventionist.

Now take a look at Christina.



Now let me just ask you to consider something.  Let's say Jeff was not well-known as an interventionist on this show.   Let's say he's just some guy who is there saying he's an interventionist.  He is then pushing on Christina, and her mother, to tell her to "get into a car and come with us now" into some mystery treatment program she has not had the time to take a tour of, meet the staff, do some background research, speak to a few of their graduates, and really thoroughly check out this place before she just walks out the door with this group of people she's never met to go somewhere she's never met.  Now this is okay because there's a camera there and they people SAY they're "filming a show on intervention"?

What if they were trying to take this woman into a program like the one run by Chris Bathum where the woman died?  I've seen photos of the crowd he hangs with in the room.  I know one of them for a fact "13th stepped" a newcomer who was in less than 30  days clean and was in treatment when he had more than 10 years clean.  I know one of the other men is one who insisted on pushing the first "newcomer" I brought into an NA meeting with me back in 1987.  She had one week off Sunset Blvd.  He kept pushing her into a relationship over my strong objections, and when we got into it he accused me of "being a jealous lesbian who had no life of her own" to convince her not to listen to me and the rest of the room to back him up.  They did and a week later they found her dead of an overdose in a Sunset Strip motel.  There's a reason why we're told "no relationships for the first year guys.

Now if people like Dr. Drew, who is a part of this whole circle of recovery that runs together in conjunction with "TV recovery", can run to shows like Dr. Oz to try and defend themselves from legal accusations of negligence when being investigated for negligence - no wonder the last thing they want around them is someone who will stand up and say "this is wrong" and that these people ARE exploiting the sick for profit.  Because what I am witnessing on this show is NOT recovery.  But all the more reason why it is REASONABLE for someone like Christina to want to check out a program thoroughly before making a decision to turn her physical safety and well-being over to these people she just met a few minutes before!

After I made a list of each "Intervention" show with a prostitute, and saw that each one had failed horribly with their usual methods, I then tried last year in fact to speak to Jeff VanVonderen, the so called "interventionist", (along with each other one on the show also), about why the show was using these wrong methods of intervention on prostitutes.

Now after witnessing Jeff threaten Jimbo with a real cop to force him into treatment on a trumped up fake criminal charge AND THEN watching him in another episode trying to convince a mother of a lovely, sexy, beautiful young woman who would be a top seller at the Bunny Ranch, that the "best thing dear" for this woman is to force her on a 5150 charge into treatment - these guys have clearly been ignoring things like ethics and constitutional rights for such a long time they're not even caring to hide it any longer for the camera.

I'm even more concerned about people at home viewing this type of thing and thinking "this is the way to do it" because they "saw it on Intervention".  But it's not the way to do this with US.  The only thing JEFF is that when I first started Sex Workers Anonymous I was hearing stories of women being raped in their bedrooms at night in these treatment centers.  Treatment centers that sometimes were also being shared with men who were rapists, certified sex offenders who were in treatment for a rape committed while on drugs, where there were back rooms, kitchens, broom closets, sheds, and other areas where these men would lure these women who incoherent, and thus vulnerable to predators, because they were in early recovery.

Yes our first meeting of Prostitutes Anonymous (when we were called that) was held at Tarzana Treatment Center.  At this meeting, a man nicknamed on the streets as "Michael" would come.  He worked as a female prostitute by cross-dressing when he'd go to "work".  He was in this center for treatment.  While we had him at the meeting, I was trying to find Michael work and housing.  Only the next thing I knew Michael wasn't there.  I asked around to find that Michael had started sleeping with one of the counselors on staff there who moved Michael in with him as a lover.  Michael didn't get clean nor out of sex work.  In fact, the counselor was so worried I'd file charges against him our meeting was asked to leave Tarzana Treatment, and he cut Michael off from our meetings and from speaking to me in fear of prosecution.  I wasn't caring about prosecuting anyone but about helping Michael.  He had checked into the center off Santa Monica Boulevard - the lowest of the low bottoms you can hit.  But in their fear of legal prosecution - they cut him off from the group.  

I ran into Michael again in an NA meeting in Las Vegas in 1996.  He was still using and still prostituting even though he had just gotten married and had a baby.  Thus why he wanted to get clean again now years later when I met him again.  Trust was impossible - I mean how could Michael trust anyone again when he had turned to a treatment center for help and was abused and exploited in return instead?  How is he supposed to trust anyone who says they "want to help him" I ask you?

WHICH IS WHY I made a SEPARATE list of treatment centers where I knew a prostitute could be safe entering into treatment because I had met all of the clients, and staff, and made sure that steps were taken for her, or HIM, not to be in a situation where some therapist who might also be in SA have a key to her room at night, or a client couldn't push her into a back room after dinner when no one was looking.  By the way, that's not a list that Polaris is going to have, nor are they going to have years of survivors telling stories about what happened to them in this center or with that therapist to draw upon in knowing where might be a good, or bad, placement for one of us.

What I found was sometimes when a lovely sexy young woman who has worked as a prostitute was refusing treatment, wasn't because she was refusing treatment, but because she was sensing the men putting her into this treatment were sexual predators.  Which is why when Jeff was saying Laura's mother should be forcing Laura into treatment against her will by the threat of a 5150 hold - what's not being spoken here was that Laura might be resisting going because she's sensing what these predators might be about to do to her.  I don't know if that's what she was feeling because we don't know who the staff was where they wanted to take her.   Which instead of threatening her with a 5150 charge, and Jeff trying to get the mom to sign her daughter's rights away like he did, why wasn't that done?  Why wasn't she invited to come tour the place, meet the staff, talk to some other clients, and then ask her again if she wanted to go?  I mean why from "no" to 5150?

Especially if again where they wanted her to go  was a place like this.  http://www.laweekly.com/news/a-drug-rehab-mogul-built-an-empire-that-s-now-being-probed-by-the-fbi-da-and-state-of-california-6390686 

I'm sorry but I know the sound of the voice of a man who says "come here my dear" said the spider to the fly who is trying to tell the mother of Christina to use the threat of 5150 to force her into removing her freedom and becoming classified as an "addict" AND A "nut job".  Because do you know what happens to beautiful young women like her who have a history of being not only admitted for treatment for drug addiction on TV, but also for being labeled a "nut job" who had to be committed on a 5150 hold?

Do you know what happens?  It means that any man in her past or future Christina then accuses of raping her has now just rendered her testimony completely moot.  I am a paralegal now for 30 years, and I've helped abused women, raped women, pimped women, fight in court for things like custody of their kids, and to accuse their molesters and rapists in court for their abuse and I have watched as their medical records, and things like tapes from shows like "Intervention" were used against them to rob them of their children years down the road, and to have their rapists and molesters defend themselves against her charges.

I mean how beautiful for a rapist now knowing he can go and speak to her family and talk them into going on "Intervention" with the offer of free treatment, and pulling on those heart strings of "you know this is the best thing for her" without anyone there like myself saying "you need to consider the long term effects of this.  Are you saying this kind of thing never happens?  Because I got a list of phone numbers of women who will tell you otherwise.

I don't understand the disregard for concerns on how this might look on her permanent record when in my day celebrities used to pay big cash money to get treatment WITHOUT there being a legal record, or a public one for that matter, because they knew that record, or tape, would render their testimony in court later on worthless.  Am I saying this is what happened to Christina?  No - I'm saying that it could and still might.  Jeff is also old enough to remember when celebrities, business people, doctors, etc., would do everything to hide a mental health hospitalization for what it would do to their reputation.   So no I don't understand why he's asking the mother to make this 5150 petition so lightly.

We don't know what she's going to remember when she's been clean some time about her childhood.  We don't know if she's going to have kids down the road.  That's when this show might come back to haunt her - maybe years from now.  But put that aside, I know this form of "intervention" where the addict is not willing to get clean and thus being forced into treatment won't work.  If I know it won't work, the tape shows us it didn't work, then WHY I'm wondering would Jeff do this in this manner?

ANYONE in treatment knows forcing an addict into treatment won't work because they don't want it.  THIS is a testament IT'S NOT WORKING  http://intervention-directory.com/post-intervention-deaths/  I too saw these men who would say I wasn't getting clean because I "wasn't willing" when the truth was they weren't offering me the way to get clean!  I proved that by when I actually found someone who knew what they were doing - I GOT CLEAN!  So it's not always the "addict not wanting it" as to when they aren't getting clean.  Sometimes it's because the provider has no idea what they're doing.

 Jimbo didn't want it and he didn't stay clean.  His interventionist did not talk to him to make him want to get clean.  No.  His interventionist was like "oh you don't want to go?  Okay we're going to make you go".

Result?  Jimbo left treatment for whatever reason and the caption at the end said he didn't stay clean.  Just as at the end of Christina's show it says she left treatment at 97 days and also didn't stay clean.  It says she went to stay with her mother.  Well maybe she went to stay with her mother and she doesn't trust the treatment community because they tried to lock her up against her will on a 5150 hold and put on her permanent record such a hold which will render any testimony against a sexual predator pointless in the future.

They'll pull out this tape, subpena her medical records, and case over.  Something that I don't understand why these men in this show aren't considering.  Oh that's right - that's because they're refusing to speak to me who would then tell them of our members' experiences with this type of thing and why they should be handling differently.  Oh duh.  Personally I think the Chief of Police and the ACLU should review the tape of Jimbo.

If Jimbo had committed a crime he needed to be arrested.  If he did not commit a crime - then this officer went over the ethical bounds of his uniform by threatening to arrest someone in order to force them into treatment.  Treatment which by the way would be billing the state for said treatment, or his insurance.

Which means that the state, or his insurance, would be paying for drug treatment that won't work because it won't work when the addict is forced like this to go into treatment - and it in fact did not work.   I personally am EXTREMELY uncomfortable with the idea that some man I don't know can come in with a uniformed cop and threaten me into taking treatment I don't want to take AND MAKE SOMEONE PAY FOR THAT on top of it.  Someone profited off this whether his treatment was free or not.

Which is why I think whoever paid for Jimbo's treatment should take a real good look at this show.  Just as I'd like the state licensing board to find out what treatment center would accept Jimbo into treatment, and charge for it, knowing he was being forced to be there under the threat of arrest.  I'm sorry but the Hippocratic Oath says "first do no harm" and falsely putting on someone's criminal record an arrest for threatening someone IS "doing harm".   Which means now I understand why these same interventionists refused my attempts to try and speak to them last year about my concerns about the way women who were in prostitution were being treated on the show.  They don't care!

Now I understand why Relativity Media is training their own camera men - because someone trained as a camera man by a reputable film school would never allow a camera man to stand by and watch this, or to create a tape which could be used in the future to blackmail someone.

What do I mean by that?  What if, and I mean what if, Christina was raped while being forced to be in a psychiatric hospital on the 5150 hold, or in treatment?  What if she died?  What if she died in a treatment program she was forced to be in.  http://www.examiner.com/review/a-e-s-intervention-christina  One of the reasons I was taught doing interventions meant having the adult CHOOSE treatment was from a liability point of view.  You force someone into a program and they die in there - then you could be held liable.  But if they freely "choose" the same treatment, and died, then no then you're not legally liable most likely.

Think it doesn't happen?  http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/5-celebrity-rehab-deaths-dr-drew-sits-down-dr-oz or http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/dr-drews-celebrity-rehab-death-422453  No offense guys but if you came at me and asked me to check into these hospitals I WOULD REFUSE and that would be a very sane act considering what's going on in these places!   If I had walked in to check them out, and found women were being put into housing dependent upon one person, and a job dependent upon one person, and a social networking dependent upon one person, and if all of those were put together into one place so that moving or quitting would rob that person of everything about their life - this is way too "enmeshed" and too prone to abuse such as with cults - and I would have insisted these things be separated.  That way if it were me, I could lose my job and not also lose my house, friends, therapists, etc.  No - someone trained would have seen this was not the right place for a young woman coming out of prostitution to be.

 http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=5635284   I did not see Christina, nor Christina's mother being invited on a tour of the prospective treatment center.  I didn't see them meeting the staff and the other clients.  I didn't see them being given time to look into the history or track record of the program they're being asked to surrender Laura into their care physically with her life.  I don't see them being shown what steps are being taken to care for her safety to make sure she's not raped by some man wandering into the program at night because the doors aren't locked as does happen in these places.  I don't see her being given a chance to look into the licensing of the counselors she's going to be seeing to make sure they're qualified and aren't in some type of criminal investigation like the one that was going on against Chris Bathum and Dr. Drew's facility at the time.

In fact, I would like to invite the Attorney General's office to view these tapes of Jimbo and Christina, along with a member of RAIIN, who has members on their board who have been raped, members of the National Association of Child Abuse, who have members who have been molested, a member of the National Council on Sexual Addiction, who know well about doctors and police officers who rape women in their custody and control, and I'd like to see a task force set up to review how many women who have been on this show have found themselves up at the Bunny Ranch.

The Bunny Ranch is not putting their licensing information up on public record.  The women aren't being allowed to speak to the press WITHOUT Dennis sitting right there.  The brothel is kept under lock and key.  I'm blocked from speaking to anyone working there.  Polaris has not required the brothel to have the hotline number up at the ranch for these women to call for help.  The Trafficking Hotline is not given to them at the licensing board either.  Something for which we asked the Nevada Attorney General to do back in 2013 and then the press, and her, acted like we weren't even there, let alone we asked for this type of protection to be given to these women.

Where oh by the way one's past record for prostitution won't stop you from being licensed to work up there thanks to the Cupcake Girls now.  Meaning everything is in place here as shown by these tapes to do what they did to Christina, who for all we know could be in a car right now on her way up to work at the legal brothels of Nevada.

If they protest they can't be made to work up there because of a past record for prostitution, or even being on probation, then someone from SWOP can stand up for them like they just did in Seattle, and claim they were a "victim of trafficking" and their record expunged, they get a license to work at the brothel - and then I ask you how are they ever going to get out?  How are they going to get out when they might even make it to a truck stop and the driver is told to call the police - who then tells them they "have to get back to the ranch darling or we're going to arrest you for being out after curfew"?

Where they showed us how great of care they take of their customers like Lamar - so I know they'd take just perfect care of Christina wouldn't they?  Those women up there required to live up there to work for weeks at a time, have no outside advocate, no union rep., nothing.

The people on this show have gone beyond all ethical lines as shown by these two shows.   These shows are showing me people who are being forced into treatment where the treatment centers are getting paid with absolutely no ethical concern for the fact this isn't how an addict will ever get clean number one.  Number two - no concern for the legal rights of these people being forced into treatment.  Number three - no concern for the permanent record of the people on this show for things like criminal arrests nor for psychiatric holds which literally can ruin their future.  Number four - no consideration they might like to research the treatment center, or the staff, to see who they're being asked to put their life into the hands of before making that decision.

I want Christina's mother to know I stand behind her when she refused to listen to Jeff about forcing her into a hospital where I"m sorry but people can be abused, raped, used as prostitutes, brainwashed, even die, and I'm not seeing either of them being given a chance to carefully investigate and check out this treatment center, and the staff, to make sure they'd be safe there, before having someone then try and force them into going on a split second without any such consideration.

I am witnessing the hostage taking of addicts on this show and I think there needs to be an investigation done.  One where Dr. Drew doesn't run to Dr. Oz to blame the addict for his failure to know what he's doing.  Want proof lawyers?  How about the fact I tried repeatedly to reach out to him when Heidi Fleiss was going into his treatment program strongly advising him that if he did not talk to me about how to handle her treatment SHE WOULDN'T GET CLEAN.

How about she in fact did what I knew she'd do, what we historically do as evidenced by past episodes of "Intervention", is that she stormed out of there when she was feeling trapped and bullied by men - which is what I saw happening to her - not treatment.  Being put into a room with the door shut with Tom Sizemore in early recovery, who was also in early recovery, and was a man she had once lived with, with a camera on her no less - I mean if that wasn't being cornered and bullied I don't know what is.  I don't blame her for storming out of there.  But not only did she storm out of there - but she had a horrible accident I blame Dr. Drew for.  Why?  Well she wasn't clean and he left her drive from LA to Nevada for one.  Her getting behind the wheel of a car is when HE should have threatened with a 5150 to stop her from driving.  She could have been killed.

Now how do I hold him responsible?  I bombarded Dr. Drew's office with phone calls, emails, and faxes saying I needed to speak to him about how the methods used on addicts would not work on Heidi, or Mary Carey, or any other sex worker he's worked with in the past BEFORE they started filming with Heidi or Mary and explained I needed to talk to him about HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT.

For him to refuse to speak to me and then mishandle their treatment - I'm sorry makes him negligent.  As negligent as if someone were to check into treatment with another disorder they refused to educate themselves on.  https://www.change.org/p/a-e-intervention-episode-linda-petition-to-remove-add-disclaimer-to-intervention-episode-linda-on-a-e  Yes he's refused to educate himself, or his staff, in the special needs of someone who is coming out of the sex industry like Heidi Fleiss, or Mary Carey, and then when he failed he blamed them?  No wrong wrong wrong.  Especially when if they then in the future are being told to be checked back into this same system and when they balk at all for one minute they're then being threatened with being forced into it by the threat of arrest and/or psychiatric holds?

Oh and this?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eLOW4lYPQk  The rationale of someone who knows they're breaking the law and all ethical bounds.  I did it because . . . . Like the death of the woman who wasn't receiving proper treatment under Chris Bathum.  Sure she committed suicide.  But take a real good look at that suicide and you tell me if it was because she was an addict - or because she was an addict who wasn't receiving proper care being the men in charge of her treatment were too busy screwing her over - literally and figuratively.

Postscript - it appears Jimbo is "running for city council".  http://www.topix.com/forum/city/mount-holly-nc/TV7N1RSD1HRQBB412  I found the episode I saw - but for some reason one needs a "token" to watch.

HOW TO STOP SEX TRAFFICKING, RAPE, ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Take a real good look at the Bill Cosby case.  Everyone is saying that a "lot of people knew".  The limo drivers, the cast members of the show, the butler, the handlers, etc.  When those women woke up back in their homes - someone got them there.  One woman says a female "handler" told her "Bill will be right in" while she was going in and out of consciousness.

Meaning that a lot of people saw what was going on and just remained quiet.  Why?  Everyone wanted to keep their job.

I saw Johnny Knoxville doing a "dirty grandpa" film where he hired people to come "bury grandma in the back yard" for $340.  He said "three people agreed to do it - no questions asked".  Wow.  Three people showed up to his house, buried a woman's body in the backyard, took their money and left.  It's on film!

Linda Lovelace says when she was forced to film "Deep Throat" with her pimp pointing a gun at her off camera - that everyone on the set knew.  It was a mob financed film and everyone was also scared not only they're never work again if they blew the whistle but also they might get harmed.  But if someone had spoken up - who knows what might have changed history.

In watching the "Two Corey's" I remember watching a coffee shop meeting where the one Corey who is now deceased said that the "secret is killing him" of who abused him sexually as a child.  It didn't take a genius to see he was talking about Michael Jackson.  I then watched the other Corey basically tell him "if you want to ever work again in Hollywood - you keep your mouth shut like I am".  I wonder now that Corey killed himself because of keeping secrets if the other Corey ever thinks about that day at the coffee shop.  I do.

Because I was taught I'm as "sick as my secrets".  I will speak my mind no matter who I piss off, no matter if I get fired, nor matter if i get evicted.  Now trust me - it's resulted in a lot of jobs and a lot of moving!  In 1988, when I did all those talk shows against Joe Conforte's wanting to bring the brothels into California - every single time I appeared on TV I was fired and evicted.  People didn't understand sex trafficking back then.  They only looked as me like a "whore" or an "junkie".  I would literally come home after an airing to find an eviction notice on my door and a call to say I was fired.

Did I shut up?  If w had - the Trafficking Act of 2000 I don't think would have passed.  I got a job at a temp service and I found a weekly apartment that could care less about what I did years ago.  I'm still clean and alive and our program, and movement, is growing.

There's POWER in the truth.  Almost every child abuse victim tells me "someone knew".  But no one said anything.  Michael Jackson gave a lot of money to children's charities and the minute he was accused - they all popped up to defend him.  When the founder of American Apparel started sexually harassing his employees - everyone kept thinking about their jobs, and his work to help illegal immigrants.  When Snoop Dogg got an RV and started his "pimp revival" tour in 2003  -people wanted to get paid.  When I went to MTV about what was going on and started to ask them for help - they shifted their trafficking work to Europe, and canned the "True Life" show they were getting ready to film with us because it would have meant filming Snoop.

Do you want to stop abuse, rape, sex trafficking, etc?  The people who are the witnesses have got to stop worrying about their jobs, their paychecks, etc.  It goes deeper too.  I got a call from an old high-school girlfriend a few months ago.  Her husband's drinking got so bad he was retired early and now they're losing the house.  As I tried to figure out why he was drinking so bad - I found out what's in Nevada's water supply.  He worked for them.  I asked if he did anything to "blow the whistle" and he said simply "no".

What about what jobs we take?  Please explain the logic to me Jada Pinkett-Smith of promoting "Don't Sell Bodies" and then promoting Magic Mike XXL?  Please explain the logic of taking that movie while trying to warn people of the dangers of sex trafficking.  SEX TRAFFICKING THAT EXISTS IN STRIP CLUBS.  What you think it doesn't exist in male only clubs?  Is that your logic?  Tell that to the "lady boy" strip clubs all over Thailand.

What was one of the Bible's biggest commandments?  Those shalt not lie.  Thou shalt not bear false witness.  The truth shall set you free.  I do like Gloria Steinhem's addendum however - "but first it will piss you off".

SENATOR MANCHIN'S OBJECTION TO BUCKWILD

I just saw Joe Manchin's objection about MTV's "BuckWild" where he asks MTV is they want to put money ahead of the welfare of our children when he asks them why they're airing that show. The answer Mr. Manchin is yes. Yes they put money ahead of the welfare of our children. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/2chambers/wp/2012/12/07/joe-manchin-objects-to-mtvs-buckwild-reality-show/

In 2003, I was discussing with the producers of MTV doing a series of public service announcements about the only hotline in the country where anyone, male, female, or transgender, who simply wants help to leave the sex industry, whether they are trafficked or not, can call to find help to either escape and/or leave the streets where the hotline is answered by another survivor. The hotline also refers adults into the 12 step program of Sex Workers Anonymous, and those under 18 years old to Children of the Night.

We were also negotiating a deal to have a film crew come out and do a documentary on our work under their series "True Life". This was before Snoop Dogg had made his confession in the Rolling Stone interview that he was "putting together an organization" where he was transporting prostitutes on his tour bus from city to city to "sell pussy". Women without checking their ID for their age, were put into a closed room with men who were rich, famous, and stoned - many of who were NFL football players so they were also 300 pounds and then asked if they would allow Snoop to act out his "fantasy" of selling them to these players. I can't imagine a 110 pound lone female is going to say "no" thinking something might not happen to her safety if she did. They were stoned anyway - so how would they tell if she felt uncomfortable and afraid to say "no" so I venture to say this is a form of rape.

Once he "turned them out" - other real, dangerous, street pimps then scooped them up into actual trafficking. I got a call from a politician in Nevada on the "down lo" to go and rescue a young woman who was pregnant and chained to a toilet because they didn't want the publicity that would result from sending in the police to rescue her - and then file charges that would lead directly to Snoop. Meaning that our police are paid to protect us - but they called our group to go in and rescue this poor girl because they were afraid of being sued for defamation or wrongful arrest.

Because this tour was moving onto the next city - I reached out to MTV's producers to help me contact this tour's organizers to see what they could do about shutting this down since the police clearly didn't want to get involved in a Bill Cosby scandal times 10. Their response was to fire the producer who was working on our PSA's to help save lives, and then redirect the trafficking program they'd just launched to instead of opening in the USA originally as planned - to open instead in Sweden to address European sex trafficking.

He has bragged about this pimping - and has never apologized to the many victims we rescued from that tour. In fact, he's now gone on to start the Youth Snoop Football League spreading across Los Angeles, with cheerleaders, while he invests in a marijuana delivery service and I have yet to see his carrying a medical marijuana card while being around our young girls and boys in a role model and authoritative position.

I have organized www.boycottsnoop.com until something is done to address the fact that prior to the Youth Snoop Football League high school security was able to tell pimps who did not attend those schools to get off the grounds. Now all they have to do to enter these school grounds is simply say "I'm here for the game". Snoop is actively hanging out with Rick "Freeway" Ross, who was connected to drug trafficking during iran Contra - which also trafficked our American young women. Despite him promoting his book now discussing his drug trafficking - he will not address the sex trafficking that went on during those years at all on interviews I'm also blocked from being involved with to discuss the sex trafficking part of Iran Contra.  

But then I heard Rick's song and dance about "going straight" and caring about our youth before. If he did - he'd be calling upon Snoop to take measures to protect these kids in connection with his football league with respect to sex trafficking that has become such a major problem in Los Angeles recently - the Board of Supervisors just approved a $7 million dollar budget to do something about this epidemic. One that starts with Snoop Dogg making an apology - and doing something to address trafficking that may be happening in our schools with a police force letting fear of a lawsuit stop them from protecting our citizens - young or old.

So yes Senator Manchin - MTV cares more about money than the well-being of our children. So if you want to do something about this besides just complain - I ask you to put together a committee of some kind to investigate pandering charges against Snoop Dogg, and MTV for "promoting prostitution" which is a felony in this country, does not require the receipt of money, nor does the consent of the victim negate the crime. I further add that maybe we should boycott MTV to put a hurt where that dollar is until they do something to address sex trafficking right here at home in the USA.
