The National Center on Sexual Exploitation has updated its annual “Dirty Dozen” ranking of mainstream companies or entities that it says are not doing enough to stop the spread of sexual exploitation.
This year, the “Dirty Dozen” has been expanded to include 13 companies--a “Baker’s Dozen” List. This is the first time more than 12 companies have been added to the list. The NCOSE has released a “Dirty Dozen” list each year since 2013.
“In today’s world, corporations drive our culture,” says the NCOSE’s website. “They influence how people communicate, how they dress, and what information they receive. When a company makes a positive change to stop promoting sexploitation, it has a ripple effect that influences countless lives.”
This year, the listed companies or entities are: Amazon, Google, Massage Envy, Netflix, Nevada, Seeking Arrangement, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Steam, TikTok, Twitter, Visa, Wish, and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts.
Nevada, the only state to be included on the list, was listed because it is the only state with legalized brothel prostitution. In 2018, Lyon County, which is home to four registered brothels, voted overwhelmingly to keep brothels open.
