Joy Friedman, a social worker at the non-profit Breaking Free, said that since children are exposed to pornography at a relatively younger age today, they don't realise that their decision to enter the porn industry could traumatise them for a lifetime.
"This is permanent, she can't erase this. Now, it goes into your family, it goes into your friends, it goes into your career," Friedman said. "In the future, this is what you're known for and this is who you're labeled as. That affects you." Friedman believes that most porn actors might not have had a smooth sailing in early childhood.

Joy Friedman, Training and Outreach Director

For the past 14 years, Joy has proved to be an invaluable resource and has worked for Breaking Free as a case manager, outreach specialist, program manager, and coordinator for the Offenders Prostitution Program (John School). Joy has extensive experience in providing services to women who have been victimized in systems of prostitution. She is a sought-after public speaker and has provided numerous trainings and presentations on prostitution and sex trafficking as violence against women and girls. She also serves as one of Breaking Free's primary liaisons with the St. Paul Police Human Trafficking Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

One of those role models was Joy Friedman, who came to Breaking Free as a client in 2001 and is now the organization's director of training and outreach.
"Getting out, it's very hard. Just like domestic violence," said Friedman, 51, who was trafficked to Minot, N.D., among many other cities, in her teens and 20s. "You'll go back and forth with different things," she said. Friedman and others do outreach to women in the life, but sometimes it takes a long time to reach them. "Some of the girls are so addicted to the lifestyle, the hustle, the abuse, all of that, that they don't know what to expect on this side," Friedman said.
