Good god: a vile new porn series called "Border Patrol Sex" features a fictionalized version of the rape and exploitation that many Mexican and Central American women experience while crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Up to 80 percent of migrant women and girls are raped during their border crossing, by the traffickers smuggling them across, other migrants, or corrupt U.S. Border Patrol officials.

That evidently sounds pretty arousing to the porn conglomerate MindGeek, formerly Manwin, who are behind the series. As the Daily Dot was first to report, the series was launched by MindGeek earlier this year, a major European company that also owns YouPorn, RedTube and many other major porn sites. It's produced by Mofos, a porn studio that focuses on "real amateur girls." Here's a nausea-inducing description on the "Border Patrol Sex" homepage:

Watch these guys hunting the illegal female immigrants and giving them a lesson on why the law should be obeyed. Cruising in their SUV, agents catch these college girls in the field and fuck them really hard. Getting fucked by border patrol agent is one thing, but these girls don't know that this doesn't really mean they get to pass the border afterwards.

A standard disclaimer at the bottom of the page promises that "characters and situations appearing in this work are fictitious," but it plays to a disgusting degree off very real events. A Fusion investigation found that up to 80 percent of migrant women and girls are raped during their crossing. That's higher than an estimate of 60 percent in a 2010 report by Amnesty International; the Amnesty report also found, as they put it, "the prevalence of rape is such that people smugglers may require women to have a contraceptive injection prior to the journey as a precaution."

Civil rights and human rights groups accused U.S. Border Patrol agents earlier this year of abusing migrant children in their custody, subjecting them to rape, beatings, depriving them of food and other forms of torture. In March of this year, Texas Border Patrol agent Esteban Manzares kidnapped a Honduran mother and her two children he found crossing near the Rio Grande. He raped all three and slashed the mother's wrists, then shot himself as the FBI and SWAT team officials arrived to arrest him. (The victims all survived and were hospitalized in Texas; it's not clear if they were deported after they were treated.)

There's a clear difference between "Border Patrol Sex" and other forms of edgy fantasy porn: rape scenarios, for example, or underage- or incest-themed content, all of which, for legal reasons as well as basic human decency, tend to make it very clear that they are fictionalized and don't rely on any specific real-world events. The Border Patrol series feels more like Holocaust or "Stalag" pornography, the exploitation comics that cropped up in Israel after the Holocaust and which sexualized concentration camps and other types of Nazi exploitation. (Or, for a more modern example, "Taliban"-themed rape porn.) Conceptually, too, the "Border Patrol" series takes a lot from Max Hardcore's style of extreme gonzo pornography that focused on inflicting pain and humiliation on the actresses in a style that's intentionally meant to blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

It's also more disgusting and inhumane than any of the above, in a way that truly makes us worry about the human race. If you have thoughts on the Border Patrol Series that you'd like to share with its parent company, you can email compliance@manwin.com. You can also tweet at Mofos here.
