Many people question why some sex trafficking victims stay with their traffickers. As a survivor, I know this simple question requires a rather complex explanation.

This was an extremely difficult article to read but such histories must be told if we are going to be able to stop this horrific trafficking.

Its a bit hard to fathom why grown men would want to have sex with a child. There is no precedent in nature- even an animal will not copulate with an immature female.

Phyllis...it's about POWER--not nearly as much as SEX.

Animals WILL make "mounting" moves on other animals of the same AND opposite sex....to show dominance. In the case of pedophile priests...they wanted the power of having helpless children in their "stable."

It's sick.

It is about both power AND sex. The two go hand in hand.

How can you look at yourself in the mirror when you do this to other people, especially the innocent, children.
These people must be removed from society.

i read it is the orfaniges in india selling them to the traficas now that the legal adoption system has stoped taking them, but it was the legal one before that!
we cant fix the world and live in it we need to remove the parts we cant tolotate and see what we have left to use to build a new world!

Why in the world should victims ever have to explain why they stayed with an abuser? Shouldn't it be the question, why do some people find it acceptable to exploit another human being, and get that person to defend why he/she continues to do so, rather than double a victim's suffering because they don't run away quickly enough in some people's estimation? Insane. Thanks for the story.
