Crimes of Omission: Reckoning with Institutional Enablers of Sexual Abuse and Exploitation:
Male Sexual Exploitation: Demystifying its Nuances and Complexities
HEMAD is an award-winning campaign to motivate men to take a public stand against the commercial sex trade and human trafficking. The campaign is spreading across the country and around the world through social media. So far, more than 65,000 men have taken the HEMAD (Human trafficking Educators working with Men and boys to stand Against the Demand) pledge.
Human sex trafficking is a growing problem here in Wisconsin. A study from the Medical College of Wisconsin found that in the City of Milwaukee alone there were 340 people believed to be victims between 2013 and 2016. The National Trafficking Hotline also reported 134 cases in Wisconsin in 2018.
Our goal this year is 75,000 men worldwide. It is important to every woman that every man take this pledge. Join the movement and help us make history.
I had an incredible opportunity to meet this brave fourteen-year-old, Dillion Binegar, when I was speaking at St. John's Jesuit High School. I was so impressed with this young man's passion and desire to help other that I want to share this website.
Here at teens against abuse we are teens trying to help other teens, we are a team of kids from ages 12-17 working on helping teens that have been abused worldwide. We also provide links to materials on the signs, symptoms, and effects of abuse, so that teens can better understand the situation they are in and the resources available to them. We work to empower teens to make informed decisions about their health, safety, and wellbeing.

Executive Producer, Louise Webber, breaks the Taboo to Release Controversial 10-part Docuseries by Shedding a Light on the Million-Dollar Porn Industry and the effects it has on society.
John-Michael Lander tells his story of competing in the sport of springboard and platform diving where and sexually abused by the adults entrusted in this training. During the age of 15, his coach started taking him along overnight trips where alcohol, sexual abuse and derogatory terms were involved. The coach emotionally isolated and manipulated John-Michael to trust only him. John- Michael felt confused, conflicted, special, shameful for feeling special, and several other feelings from the grooming process he was going through.
Simultaneously, John-Michael was manipulated by a lawyer, who promised to help him get into a higher state college, and then by a doctor, who took him and a group of boys to a ring of so-called professionals and experts that ogled, fondled and distributed the boys among themselves.
When John-Michael told his mother about these mistreatment, she slapped him and told him not to tell lies. These professionals were helping John-Michael’s family in all financial aspects and had gained her trust. She, along with many others in the community, believed their good reputations. At that point, John-Michael had nobody to confide in and protect him, because all the trusted adults he knew either thought he was lying or were involved in the abuse. John-Michael says that the predators not only groom the victims, but also the parents.
The World Premiere for the docuseries begins on July 11 2022, with a new episode from the 10-part series being released each day afterwards.

This exploratory research interviewed first-hand accounts of 40 male survivors of child sexual abuse and exploitation, and 30 field experts specializing in male child sexual abuse and human trafficking. This study uncovers and identifies the social interactions that harm and aid male survivor recovery and healing. During COVID, suicides of men went up 95%, an astounding number
This paper also examines the roles played by female CSEA perpetrators, including the characteristics of female abusers, traffickers, and buyers (exploiters and abusers)
