Each year thousands of women mostly from poor regions of the world are promised work as dancers, domestics and nannies in Western Europe (and North America). Every year they end up as sex slaves and are raped multiple times daily. Some are beaten and even killed by their pimps, and increasingly the traffickers are hunting their prey nearer home. It is a big problem in the United States, and it is on the increase in the UK and mainland Europe. That is why parents should be aware, and their children should be too, it can happen anywhere.
British Girls Trafficked
I have just finished the second reading of two true stories of British girls, Sophie Hayes and Sarah Forsyth, both trafficked into forced sex slavery. Their stories are unique to them, but sadly there are thousands of untold stories of women and girls trapped in this ugly trade. To call these two women lucky seems strange considering what they went through, but at least they are alive, free and are rebuilding their lives. Many do not make it.
“It’s easy to dismiss girls who work on the streets as deadbeats or drug addicts without ever thinking about why they’re working as prostitutes. And the truth is that many of them have been trafficked and they work long, exhausting, miserable, soul-destroying hours for men who are cruel and violent. They’re constantly afraid, not just because of what might be done to them if they don’t do what they’re told, but also because of the very real threats that are made against their families and the people they love. What kind of person does that to another human being?” – Sophie Hayes, from her true story: Trafficked. Sophie now works with the charity Stop the Traffik, and works to combat human trafficking through the Sophie Hayes Foundation.
Are You a Rapist?
Women trafficked-for-sex experience recurrent rape day in day out. They are controlled by physical violence and psychological intimidation; often the pimps threaten to kill family members.
Do you use prostitutes? Are you sure that the women you pay for sex with are willing participants? Even if you ask they may be too scared to answer truthfully.
Not all sex workers are trafficked of course, but can you tell the difference? It is said “a standing cock has no conscience”, well, that has got to change. Did you know that, in the UK, you can be charged with rape if you have sex with a trafficked person? Maybe it’s the same in other countries too. I hope so, because this abuse has got to stop.
If only every child, parent and user of sexual services could watch this video shot in Amsterdam’s red light district. Kids and their parents need to know the dangers and the Johns need to think before they act. Click the image or this link to watch the video.
