I can name a bunch of high traffic websites that feature “murders” or similarly vile content right on their front page.
Case in point, L.L. – full name withheld – is a reputable outlet of free speech that’s been featured on and directly cited by CNN. It’s available to, as you said, “anyone,” anywhere in the world, and thrives due its lack of censorship. One of the “featured” new videos today on L.L. is the 6+ minute brutal murder of a middle-aged woman. Less than 24-hours later, it’s already surpassed 55,000 views and 400 comments.
Now you have the right to crusade for censorship on the internet, just realize that countless hordes have been there, done that, and ended up at square one because no LAWS back them. No matter how many letters you write or phone calls you make, don’t expect any results tilted in your direction.
P.S. A simple Google search yielded a whole litter of sites whose sole purpose is selling simulated rape videos. Would you like me to PM you the domains so you can contact each and every one?

The site contains real rapes, which was labelled as "Real Rape".
Furthermore, on the internet, there are websites now where you can upload murders, and then these can be watched by anyone.
And no one does anything about it. No law enforcement, nothing, the sites are just left to grow bigger and bigger, uglier and uglier, and more and more violent.

I have worked as a volunteer aiding abused women, and not once have I ever come across an instance where a victim of rape hasn't been scarred or traumatized. To even suggest that rape victims turn to fantasy rape as a form of self-therapy is despicable in all shapes and forms. Perhaps a deluded, twisted mind might contemplate such a sick scenario, but I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that these situations are unlikely to exist in the real world.
Rape victims have a hard enough time coming to terms with such a life changing event. You are going to be hard pressed to find one willing to relive, or re-enact, one of the most nightmarish events of their lives.
The fact that this line of reasoning even exists in any form or fashion is downright appalling.

Bondage Porn, or Rape Porn, is popular but fake.
The actors who play the rape victims are payed good money to do what they do. The girls know EXACTLY what they are doing, and have done it many times before. It's really good money, too hard for some girls to resist. The violence is part of the whole act. They sign contracts to get treated like that. It is technically violent rape, but the girls have been payed and agreed to it.
If it was the least bit real, it would be taken down. I assure you.
I agree it is disgusting, but there are all kinds of disgusting people out there, not just the sickos who watch it, but the girls who do it for a living.

It is commonly known that the majority of women in the West will be a victim of either a violent rape or a date-rape at some point in their lives. The psychological impact of rape can be devastating. Many victims of rape find it useful to participate in fantasy rape. It allows them to have control of a situation in a role-playing perspective, re-enacting their trauma in a safe environment. Each time they re-enact the trauma while having control of the scene helps undo the damage that had been wrongfully done to them by someone else. Some women actually find a kind of liberation and release in surrendering control and responsibility during sex. The female psyche is a strange and peculiar thing that is difficult for men to understand. It defies logic and reason because although the females may have logic and reason, their psyche doesn't necessarily abide by them in a manner which men can easily comprehend.
