Coercion to Join the Sex Trade

Some of the ways girls get into sex trade are:

  • Friends or family influence
  • Boredom (they see this as something exciting and new)
  • To afford a drug habit
  • “Boyfriend” tricks them into believing they will do it for the boyfriend if they love them
  • Gang initiation

Children with low self-esteem; children from broken families who remain with an apathetic caregiver to include some foster families, and children with no direction and high school dropouts to name a few can be the most vulnerable to being recruited and trapped into the sex trade.
