The site, GirlsDoPorn, was sued by nearly two dozen women who claimed they were deceived and coerced into making sex videos without knowing the footage would be posted on the internet, the Union-Tribune reported. San Diego Superior Court Judge Kevin Enright, who presided over a four-month-long trial, ruled in favor of all 22 plaintiffs and against a total of 13 defendants, the newspaper said. Enright found that the individuals and various affiliated businesses had operated as a single business entity and therefore all were liable. The judge also ordered the GirlsDoPorn website owners to prominently post in recruitment ads that videos would go on the internet. Women who sign up to make the videos must get copies of the legal agreement ahead of time and give permission before their names or personal information are used. At trial, defense attorneys argued that the women were over 18, understood what they were doing, accepted payment and in some cases returned to San Diego again and again to make more videos. Some of the women testified that although they accepted performing sex on camera to earn money, including paying for college, the subsequent publicity ruined their lives and careers. Read Next.

Defendants used fraud and coercion to get women to appear in porn, judge rules.
It took Judge Kevin Enright pages to enumerate the many ways owner Michael Pratt and two co-conspirators mistreated the women. The group behind GirlsDoPorn recruited women by advertising clothed modeling gigs on Craigslist and elsewhere. When a woman responded to an ad, they were told that the job was actually shooting porn. And these women were then assured that their videos would never appear on the Internet. All of this turned out to be lies.

Is it wrong to make those types of sacrifices. In the end, God is a just God. Yes, thank you for your support Autumn. This blog is very healthy because it has helped me to feel less resentful about all the time I have to spend alone doing homework and being at functions. What you described, just being in each other's presence, sounds perfect. This can also be the basis for forming important friendships, and learning proper skills for social interaction. But the reason I don't know him well enough is because we don't spend enough time together, or I feel like he's not really "letting me in" to get close to him.
