Groupon gets boycotted for “torture porn” deal
Morality in Media is calling for a nation-wide boycott of daily deal site Groupon.com for what it claims are tours of a “torture porn” facility.
“Employees lead 90-minute tours for guests aged 18 & older through five floors of historic armory & elaborate adult-film sets,” reads the Groupon listing for the SF Armory tour. “A menagerie of ornate and functional fetish film sets detailed by the San Francisco Examiner includes a plush lounge and dungeon environments, complete with props forged in an on-site metal shop. Depending on their timing, groups may also glimpse a live filming in progress, though the staff requests that patrons refrain from ogling the working boom mikes.”
This is the second time Groupon has promoted the San Francisco-based deal, with the first selling over 1,000 tickets in January. Dawn Hawkins from Morality in Media and Porn Harms explains why her organization is calling for a boycott in the video below:
