What is sex trafficking?
It’s also known as forced prostitution. The federal definition of trafficking, from the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, is when a person has exchanged a sex act for a good, service, or money, and there was an instance of force, fraud, or coercion as the initial motivation. Though the common conception of trafficking involves physical coercion, deceit and emotional manipulation are common ways in which girls are forced into prostitution.
