Another Major Hotelier Dumps Porn – Thank You HYATT!

Hyatt Hotels logoThe National Center on Sexual Exploitation will be announcing a new hotel chain to target in coming months because it offers hard-core pornography in rooms.

NCOSE, previously known as Morality in Media, has had an ongoing campaign to convince hotel chains to drop in-room, on-demand porn. Spokesperson Lisa Thompson tells OneNewsNow that the latest to change its ways is Hyatt Hotels, which has been removed from the Center’s “Dirty Dozen” list for 2015.

“We sent a letter to Hyatt and they’ve been very quick to respond,” she shares. “And so they’re joining a growing number of hotel chains that are taking similar actions … chains like Marriott, Omni, Drury, Ritz-Carlton, Nordic Choice that have all adopted similar policies.”

This summer, Hilton Hotels & Resorts changed its policy as well, deciding to drop on-demand porn videos from all of its properties worldwide – drawing applause from NCOSE and other pro-family groups. Hilton had been on the Dirty Dozen list.

Thompson says the chains that aren’t responding should note that hard-core porn may be a violation of obscenity laws. But the NCOSE spokeswoman explains the hoteliers need to understand there’s more to be concerned about than just possible legal liability.

“Pornography itself is innately harmful,” she begins. “You’re making it available to an environment where you have families coming, people with children, you have maybe guests who have no interest in seeing this stuff or even really actively try to not see it – but yet they turn on their television and, bam, it’s right there. There’s no way to escape it.”

Holdouts remain among hotel chains, Thompson notes, and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation is mulling over which one to add to its Dirty Dozen list and provide a type of publicity the chain perhaps might not desire.
