WASHINGTON, D.C., April 23, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Morality In Media today announced a national boycott of Groupon because twice this year the coupon company has offered discounts on tours of 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.
Kink advertises that they have young sexy teens who are overwhelmed and outnumbered who need to learn a lesson by multiple men; women being bound, whipped, objectified and humiliated. They are immobilized, caged and humiliated as objects; of women suspended and tied in rope bondage tormented beyond all reason; and of 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. 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 page has been set up. There boycott supporters may also email all top Groupon Executives.
How on earth could any human being on the planet take amusement in the torture of another human being, especially this disturbed and barbaric manner.
“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.”
Welcome to the community Liberalism built!
I get goupon but never saw this. They have many good deals.
Amusement is intellectual. Also, humans are sexually stimulated by this. My question is always, who taught them to be amused or stimulated by this?
It's the Internet of course. But before that there were always magazines.
If you are a tourist in Italy and go to see the ruins of Pompeii, you will be taken to see an OLD porn feature that the Romans had.
There's nothing new in the world when it comes to sin. Satan has always been around to recruit for hell.
Never got anything like this porn stuff.
Most of the Groupons are for local small restaurants, shops, etc. We are able to sample their stuff without a big commitment.
Most we liked, a few we didn't. But all in all, it's a good deal.
We'll keep using it.
Next it will be homosexual weekend experiences and lesbian gals weekend out coupons.
The participants are all acting consensually. So are the spectators. Whatever floats their boat. Big, fat, hairy deal...
Every week is a new boycott. I cannot drink coke, pepsi, or starbucks. I cannot listen to any music or watch TV or a movie. Attend any athletic event, hell, the car I am driving won’t have any insurance. LOL!
I guess I will sit at home in dark and drink water. :)
welcome to tolerance, they tolerate anything but normal people I guess. ugh
How about PETA organize a boycott of Groupon because they sell coupons to restaurants that serve meant? If one does not like S&M porn fine don’t buy the coupon.
“Next it will be homosexual weekend experiences and lesbian gals weekend out coupons.”
Been done for years - weekend trips to South Beach/Key West are full of what G*d called “abominations”.
Walk in those places mentioned above, and you may well agree.
How could any human being take amusement watching an alien monster devour some guy's head, or watch Jason slash his way through yet another group of teens?
These are actresses in videos. There is no real torture happening.
Not to worry, Papa Bear, you’re secret is safe on this website.
It is nasty, depraved and sick. It is also not real. No one is being victimized. Every woman who climbs into one of those cages does so because they want the money that they get from doing it.
Every guy who watches does so knowing that it is not as presented.
It is a sick sad world. But it is also fantasy.
