Are You Dating A Pimp? Learn How to Identify A Trafficker

As a survivor of sex trafficking in America, I can’t begin to tell you how often victims are misidentified. We are not in a third world country, so trafficking is going to look very different today in our modern, developed society. Misidentification and learning the signs are crucial to help victims get out of sexual exploitation. Because I was never handcuffed to a bed like the media portrays, I though I must not be being trafficked. I didnt fit into the stereotypical box all of us in our culture believes. I was unaware what a coercive tactic was when the man I thought was my boyfriend began his manipulation. Because of this misidentification, I never asked for help, law enforcement never noticed and my family friends believed the same lies I regurgitated to them. Many points of interception could have taken place but went un-noticed.

Sex trafficking occurs when people are forced or coerced into the commercial sex trade against their will.  Child sex trafficking includes any child involved in commercial sex.  Sex traffickers frequently target vulnerable people with histories of abuse and then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage, or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry.  Sex trafficking exists within the broader commercial sex trade, often at much larger rates than most people realize or understand.  Sex trafficking has been found in a wide variety of venues of the overall sex industry, including residential brothels, hostess clubs, online escort services, fake massage businesses, strip clubs, and street prostitution.        - From Polaris Project
