Pornhub has been sued by 40 women who say it profited from a sex-trafficking operation by a content partner. The women were all victims of Girls Do Porn, whose owners have been charged with offences by US officials. The victims allege that Pornhub and its parent company MindGeek knew of the allegations against the company, but continued a partnership anyway. It comes as Pornhub finds itself cut off from customer payments amid a scandal over illegal content.

Sex trafficking involves some form of forced or coerced sexual exploitation that is not limited to prostitution, and has become a significant and growing problem in both the United States and the larger global community. The costs to society include the degradation of human and women's rights, poor public health, disrupted communities, and diminished social development. Victims of sex trafficking acquire adverse physical and psychological health conditions and social disadvantages. Thus, sex trafficking is a critical health issue with broader social implications that requires both medical and legal attention. Healthcare professionals can work to improve the screening, identification, and assistance of victims of sex trafficking in a clinical setting and help these women and girls access legal and social services.
