Pornographer Pleads Guilty to Sex Trafficking by Force, Fraud, or Coercion

The co-owner of a San Diego-based born website pleaded guilty to sex trafficking by force, fraud, or coercion and conspiracy to the same.

The US Department of Justice said Tuesday that Matthew Isaac Wolfe, the 40-year-old co-owner of GirlsDoPorn, admitted to filming explicit videos of hundreds of young women and assuring them the videos would not be shared. He posted them anyway, the New York Post reported.

Wolfe also admitted that GirlDoPorn co-owner Michael James Pratt, 39, posted identifying information for some of the women in the videos on a website called, which was dedicated to “exposing” their identities.

Even after Wolfe learned about the website, he continued to assure the women their identities were safe.

Authorities are still looking for Pratt, and there’s a $50,000 reward offered for information leading to his arrest. He is charged with sex trafficking by force, production of child pornography, and sex trafficking of a minor by force.

Both Pratt and Wolfe are from New Zealand. The conspiracy involved recruiting women to participate in the porn video shoots using force, fraud or coercion. Pratt reportedly told the woman they would be paid $3,00 to $5,000 for a one day shoot. But they allegedly locked some of the women in rooms and forces some to commit sex acts they initially declined.
