Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking. Sex work is consensual. Human Trafficking is NOT consensual. Sex Trafficking is covert and is NOT the same as voluntarily engaged in prostitution. We cannot defeat Sex Trafficking at its core by implementing police sting alone to arrests men paying a prostitute for sex. To attack the Core of Sex Trafficking requires a very clear cut enforcement strategy targeting investigations finding those who unwilling nonconsensual Victims and the Perpetrators.

Human Trafficking

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking. Human trafficking is when people are recruited or harbored, by threat or force, to be exploited, according to the United Nations. Mostly, it’s commercial sex or labor exploitation, and a victim does not need to be transported anywhere in order to fall under the definition. Sex Trafficking is covert and illegal, and precise information is not easy to get. The US State Department and trafficking hotlines are helping to paint a clearer picture of what’s going on.

Human trafficking wasn’t illegal until 2000, when the Trafficking Victims Protection Act was passed, which made it a federal crime.

The United States, along with Mexico and the Philippines, was ranked one of the world’s worst places for human trafficking in 2018. In the US, there is no official number of human trafficking victims, but estimates place it in the hundreds of thousands.

Since 2007, more than 49,000 cases of human trafficking in the US have been reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, which receives an average of 150 calls per day.

The most human trafficking cases have been reported in California, Texas, and Florida, according to the hotline. Las Vegas is also a hot spot due to the city’s culture and high rates of homelessness. But every state in the US has reports of human trafficking.

New York, and Queens in particular, is a documented destination for trafficking, because of its location on the eastern corridor, as well as being close to rural areas like Vermont. As Homeland Security assistant special agent Akil Baldwin told AM New York, “New York is the epicenter of everything, legitimate and illegitimate”.

It is estimated that between 18,000 and 20,000 victims are trafficked into the United States every year.

Children are more vulnerable than adults. They’re easier to control, cheaper, and less likely to demand working conditions, researchers explained. More than 300,000 young people in the US are considered “at risk” of sexual exploitation.

The Department of Health and Human Services stated that 88% of all Human Trafficking Victims have seen a Healthcare Professional while in Captivity. Human Trafficking is said to be a $150 Billion Dollar Business Globally.  Human Trafficking Enforcement is becoming the newest and latest catch all disparity to bring forth the quest for resources. Of course, I dare say that Human Trafficking enforcement will bring to bare the revenue that drug treatment has brought. There is a plethora of Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) sprouting up to combat Human Trafficking many which are seeking Federal Grants and Public Donations. There is a disproportionate number of Human Trafficker arrest and prosecutions compared to the number of Victims who are rescued under anonymity.

 

Law Enforcement Stings

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking. There is an increase in Law Enforcement Stings taking place rounding up the “Johns” who are the customers paying for sex and the “Victims” who are the prostitutes. I believe there is disconnect that is withheld, which is that many of these “Victims” are in fact voluntarily working as prostitutes and are 18 years of age or older. If they are adults that are willingly working as prostitutes, then they do not meet the true definition of Sex Trafficking Victims. The fact that they may or may not be addicted to drugs is irrelevant.

So police are changing their tactics to reduce the demand for prostitution by going after the “Johns”. In the State of Ohio the Attorney General is seeking to enact a new law combat sex trafficking:

In a bid to use shame to deter the purchase of sex, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and a group of lawmakers want to post the names and photos of convicted “johns” and pimps in an online registry.
“Never underestimate the power of shame as a human motivator,” Yost said Wednesday afternoon in joining four lawmakers to unveil soon-to-be-introduced legislation targeting human trafficking.

Willing Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking

Consensual Prostitution is Not Sex Trafficking. I applaud Law Enforcement and the Attorney Generals who want to tackle prostitution and possibly help those driven by addiction. My criticism is that Sex Trafficking is covert and is NOT the same as those participants who are at age and voluntarily engaged in prostitution. These John Stings, and Registry are going after the men a who are responding to these Online Escort Websites like Adult Search, Escort Fish, Escort Index and Skip the Games. This type of law enforcement is not deterring the demand for Sex Trafficking Victims and the Perpetrators.

If law enforcement is not going to make that distinction between voluntarily Sex Work versus Sex Trafficking, then we are not getting to the core of Real Sex Trafficking. Defining and or labelling willing Prostitutes as Sex Trafficking Victims is not addressing the core of true Sex Trafficking. Much of the Sex Trafficking Victims, are not advertised Online on these Escort Websites. They are on the Dark Web and through scum bags like Jeffrey Epstein.
