Sex trafficking is a form of human trafficking that involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of individuals for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Sex trafficking can affect individuals of all ages, genders, and backgrounds, and it can occur in many different settings, including brothels, massage parlors, and online platforms. Sex trafficking often involves the use of force, coercion, or deception to control and exploit victims. It is a serious crime and a violation of human rights. Sex trafficking can have severe consequences for the victims, including physical and psychological harm, as well as social stigma and isolation.
