Since 1996, Brian Bates, Oklahoma's own Video Vigilante, has been spotlighting the graphic realities of street, forced and underage prostitution. All in an effort to expose the perpetrators, dispel the myths & raise public awareness. JohnTV achieves this goal by lifting the veil of anonymity that empowers the 'Johns' & the pimps by exposing them on this website. More about Bates and JohnTV here.
