Elizabeth Smart, who was abducted in 2002 at age 14, and raped repeatedly in captivity for the next nine months, has revealed new details of what she calls her “living hell.” In a video for anti-porn group Fight the New Drug, Smart is seen describing how her captor, Brian David Mitchell, would rape her even more after he had looked at pornographic images in magazines.

“Looking at pornography wasn’t enough for him. Having sex with his wife after looking at pornography, it wasn’t enough for him. And then it led him to finally going out and kidnapping me,” she said. “He just always wanted more. I can’t say that he would not have gone out and kidnapped me had he not looked at pornography. All I know is that pornography made my living hell worse.”
