Groupon’s Exploitation of Women Continues
Groupon’s Exploitation of Women Continues
Written By Kathy Valente   |   05.02.12

Last week Morality in Media’s executive director, Dawn Hawkins, called attention to Groupon’s exploitation and degradation of women through their promotion of torture pornographer Kink, a San Fransisco-based pornographer that produces films depicting sadomasochistic torture, rape, bondage, and hardcore fetish sexual acts. Today, it appears that Groupon has doubled down on smut, supporting an event at the mansion of the world’s top sexual exploiter, Playboy.  

Clearly, they don’t yet care that more than 10,000 of their customers have complained and are boycotting them for promoting the sexual exploitation of women and girls. Groupon’s all-male management has made it clear that they have no intention to stop selling coupons for pornographers. 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Many of your friends likely use Groupon.   Are they all aware that Groupon promotes the “use them, abuse them and discard them” Playboy philosophy?  Does everyone you know realize that Groupon defends Kink who specializes in the live filming of “young sexy teens who are overwhelmed and outnumbered…” and of women “who need to learn a lesson by multiple men…and are tormented beyond all reason?” 

PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS! URGE THEM TO TAKE ACTION HERE!  Morality in Media is trying to get 50,000 people to join this boycott. 

Groupon is already hurting for money, their stocks have recently hit the lowest ever. Let them know that selling coupons that exploit women is not the way to save their company.  

TAKE ACTION:  Click HERE to sign the boycott pledge to cancel your subscription and find all contact info for their leadership here too. 

Please, let us know if you have contacts who can help or more ideas. Also, forward emails from Groupon to 

Thank you for your help! I am encouraged that more than 10,000 people are on our side. I’m sure there are many more too. We just need your help to get the word out.
