This article highlights an increasingly pervasive threat to the safety and well-being of women in general and of survivors of an abusive partner in particular: the use of online pornography displaying the victim in sexually violent or compromising positions. In this disturbing overview, author Amber Morczek outlines the different permutations of online pornography that sexually violent men employ to harm and retaliate against women who are often but not always, ex-partners and who have, in one way or another, left the man angry and vengeful.
