ABOUT SEX TRAFFICKING
It’s common knowledge that sex is used to sell products and services, but did you know that sex (itself) is being sold on a daily basis…in your city? You may not see a prostitute walking down your street or a pimp going door to door offering her services, but it’s happening in plain sight whether you realize it or not.
While the image of a pimp and prostitute have been glamorized through movies such as “Pretty Woman” and “Hustle & Flow”, there is nothing beautiful about the dark underbelly of the sex industry.
Maybe you’ve heard the term sex trafficking. It’s simply a politically-correct way of saying sexual slavery.
While public slavery in the United States is over, there is still a large market for buying and selling women and children…in your city. It’s being sold through ads in the back weekly newspapers, posts on Craigslist.com and Backpage.com, at massage parlors, via escort services, at truck stops, and at a motel you drive by on a daily basis.
