Here’s yet another vintage dress borrowed from Lauren of Sparrow & Urchin. Okay, I know the hairstyle is overplayed in the blogging world. I always did my hair like this when it was long though and don’t tend to photograph my hair like this for the blog because I like to be unique. My hair is getting too long to do this style any longer anyway now. Maybe one day I can have it long enough to put it all around my head though.
The US is filled with sex tourism (though many times men going on business trips outside of the country or inside its borders as well all look for sex to comfort their time on the trip). To serve such men searching out sex, Pimps aka sex traffickers look for a way to make sure they get enough girls to pleasure men in that area. As an example, when there are conventions, pimps will actually take up some fresh young girls and go to that area so they can get lots of business selling them for sex. These girls might be raped-for-profit through sex acts and forced prostitution by their pimps between 10-40 times a night!
Some Law enforcers have been trying to crack down on sex tourism, such as in Cleveland, Ohio where 4 men were arrested after nearly three years of having men buy sex from 11 year old prostitutes that they trafficked or the investigators in Florida dealing with men bringing people across borders to please the sex tourism.
Websites also attract these men. For three years I had signed petitions against craigslist for the erotic services where young girls were often sold. They have since closed that section off, but backpage is no better. It is because of backpage that a ring of sex traffickers were thankfully caught in Maine, but how many other issues aren’t even being tracked through the site causing more of a problem then ever!?
During events like Super Bowls or Olympics, these places become heavily used for sex trafficking. Girls that get picked up off the street by pimps, receive conditioning and brain washing with lots of beatings involved to believe they are only of use if they get their pimps money and they become faithful slaves to their masters. Thankfully there are more places being built as safe-homes for these victims such as in Texas.
“We have tracked more than 50 instances, in 22 states over three years, of charges filed against those trafficking or attempting to traffic minors on backpage.com. These are only the stories that made it into the news; many more instances likely exist. These cases often involve runaways ensnared by adults seeking to make money by sexually exploiting them. In some cases, minors are pictured in advertisements. In others, adults are pictured but minors are substituted at the ‘point of sale’ in a grossly illegal transaction.” –read more here
I could post link upon link of news for you but there will probably be more to post soon anyway.
