A major hotel chain has announced that they will be phasing out on-demand pornographic films from their available in-room entertainment. Hyatt Hotel Corp. released a statement on Wednesday noting that “in-room programming choices are just one part of the guest experience Hyatt is constantly evaluating.” “As part of that process, Hyatt has made the decision to stop offering adult entertainment video on-demand at any Hyatt hotel,” the statement continued. The anti-pornography group the National Center on Sexual Exploitation applauded the corporation’s decision to remove the graphic content from their rooms.

Haley Halverson, communication director for NCOSE, told The Christian Post that the organization had recently contacted Hyatt about the dangers of pornographic usage. “Pornography use is tied to increased sexual violence and increased child abuse, along with lifelong addictions that have a detrimental neurological effect,” said Halverson. “After hearing NCOSE‘s concerns, Hyatt let us know that they were rethinking their policy regarding on-demand pornography, and then shortly they informed us that they have now opted to remove these videos from their guest rooms globally.”  MORE
