    Ep. 15 - Nonconsensual Videos of Me are Still on Pornhub 13 Years Later | Benjamin Nolot & Katelynn

    This week on the Exodus Cry Podcast, we sit down with Katelynn, a brave survivor of image-based sexual abuse who shares her story in hopes of changing laws and helping others who have had their trauma immortalized on porn sites.

    In 2008, Katelynn agreed to make a video with her boyfriend for him before he moved. Two years later, that video was posted repeatedly to sites like Pornhub. For 13 years, Katelynn has been pursuing justice for herself and other survivors like her. In this episode, she and Benjamin discuss the aftermath of exploitation, dealing with trauma and mental health, and what can be done to make real change for survivors.

    Ep. 13 - I Did Teen Porn, Now I Help Others Escape Porn | Brittni De La Mora & Benjamin Nolot

    Ep. 13 - I Did Teen Porn, Now I Help Others Escape Porn | Brittni De La Mora & Benjamin Nolot

    This week on the Exodus Cry podcast, Benjamin Nolot sits down with Brittni De La Mora, a former teen porn performer who now runs a nonprofit called Love Always Ministries, which helps people get free from porn, both as consumers and performers.



    Brittni discusses how her own abuse and neglect as a child played a huge role in her decision to enter porn at 18 years old. After a few years, she found herself addicted to drugs and involved with a pimp. Brittni desperately wanted to escape but was unable to see a way out after a life in the industry. Despite all of this, she explains how she was able to walk away after finding a relationship with Jesus.

    Brittni was frequently cast into barely legal roles as a teen in the industry. She and Benjamin discuss how these genres negatively affect children on a day-to-day basis as so many young kids and teens are turning to porn for sex education.

Deep dive, excellent information

I’ve been a worker in the movement to abolish trafficking and sexual exploitation for 7 years. This podcast has a huge depth of valuable information directly from people who’s lives have been affected by it, or from workers on the frontline (including the knowledge shared by Benji and Laila) that most people would not have access to. I highly recommend this podcast to any abolitionist, newer or older. I work to equip churches to serve in anti-trafficking ministry and I’ll be sharing some of these podcasts as part of our basic training. Some other reviewers have mentioned that Benji speaks too much or almost puts words in the interviewees mouth. For me, Benji and Laila are having a conversation with the interviewee, and their input often recaps or highlights important points that they don’t want the audience to lose sight of. I get the sense that each interviewee has a friendship with Benji and Laila and trusts them. I think that if the interviewee felt uneasy about anything, they would say something. Overall, I think this is a groundbreaking podcast for the movement. Thank you for the efforts to create it!

Amazing, thank you!!

I have learned so much from listening to this podcast about the commercial sex industry and the fight of abolition. As someone new to abolition, this podcast has been so informative and has really helped me gain a better understanding of the many layers to this issue. I am so encouraged by the dialogue, guest speakers, stories of the history of Exodus Cry, the work of the Lord through this organization and so much more. I cannot thank you enough for this podcast! Keep the episodes coming!!!!

Benjamin talks too much

Please tone down your input when you’re interviewing people Ben. Keeping your thoughts and talking to a minimum is important in terms of respect for the women you have on your show. I’m currently listening to your interview with Meghan Murphy and you’ve been talking for an absurd amount of time now. It’s totally off-putting.

Otherwise thank you for the work you’re doing to combat pornography and prostitution.
