A young woman whose life was traumatized by a video of her being posted to Pornhub while she was still in middle school has said that the trauma of child pornography is unending and that stricter rules are needed.

On Monday, Serena Fleites told a parliamentary committee that she fell into a spiral of depression, self-harm, and drug use after relenting to her boyfriend’s demands that she has sent him a naked video of herself in Grade 7 that ended up on the website Pornhub, a material that has proven impossible to scrub from the internet.

Fleites, who is now 19-years-old says that a lot of people in the grades above her, and most guys would try to harass her and blackmail her, if she didn’t do stuff with them or if she didn’t send them more videos, threatening hr that they would send it to her family that includes her mom, sisters, grandma, brother, and others, she added.

The California resident said that Pornhub took more than a week to respond to her initial request to take down the video, and weeks more to actually remove it, which was overall a traumatic process that played out repeatedly.

She blamed Pornhub in particular saying that it had already been downloaded by people all across the world basically and that it would always be uploaded again. No matter how many times t it was taken down, it would be right up again.

She added that they’re really selfish and that they need to really look at themselves in the mirror because they are prioritizing money and content over actual human being’s lives.

Fleite’s lawyer Michael Bowe has said that she is one of the many women who have had exploitive material of them as underage children being posted to the Montreal-based streaming giant, or who were being sexually assaulted or being trafficked with accompanying pornographic videos, which Pornhub’s parent company MidGeek has completely denied.

The testimonies come in as MPs of The House of Commons ethics committee weigh concerns around privacy and streaming platforms such as Pornhub.

According to a committee motion in December, The MPs have also called on MindGeek CEO FerasAntoon and chief operating officer David Tassillo to come before the committee and answer whether or not they plan to make the reparations for the company’s failure to prohibit rape videos and other illegal content from its site. On Monday, the committee said that they are set to appear on Friday.

However, Pornhub has said that it has removed all videos being uploaded by non-verified users after the adult website faced accusations that it has hosted illegal content.

The move came in after Visa and MasterCard had launched investigations and had decided in December to stop allowing their cards to be used on Pornhub.

The ethics committee has now planned to submit a report with the findings and recommendations to the Parliament in the coming months.
