[Highlighted elements of sex trafficking in the porn industry connect with the examples Lubben gives in this specific gifset, other elements do occur in the porn industry as well].
"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:
A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or
B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)
… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -

Italian Tourists Luring Poor Kenyan Children Into Prostitution
| Posted by Tracy
Kenya’s coastal town of Malindi may look like a tropical paradise, but it is host to a hidden child sex trade. Children as young as 12 years old say they are being lured into prostitution and pornography by tourists willing to pay handsomely for sex in secret locations.
Charlotte Attwood of BBC Africa went to Malindi to investigate and reported the following.
Just beneath a wall on one of the busy tourist beaches in Malindi, children loiter in the hope of attracting a customer. I met two girls and a boy – all under the age of 18 – and all who admit to selling their bodies to foreigners for sex.
In a good month, they can get a client every day, one of the girls said.
Most of the tourists in Malindi come from Italy, and their clients are mostly Italian men between the age of 50 and 80, she said.
With a dull look in her eye, 16-year-old Maria explained how she goes about her daily business.
“I ask my friends who work as beach boys to find me a male tourist. When I get a client, we strike a deal, say for $60 (£35, US$58),” she says.
While I was sitting with the children, I saw an elderly man approach the two girls with money in his hands. Once he spotted me, he signaled to the girls that he would be back later.
The authorities in Malindi have been trying to tackle the problem, and hotels now bar young local girls from visiting tourist rooms.
But Naomi Kazungu, the local government child protection officer, said that this has created another problem, as the trade has been driven underground.
The children are no longer going to hotels, but to private villas, Kazungu said.
Peter is one of the beach boys in Malindi who admits to facilitating this business.
He took me 300 metres (1,000ft) up the beach, around a rocky escarpment to a cave. It is a favorite spot for sex tourists, he told me, especially those who go for children.
A cave where young Kenyan boys and girls are sexually exploited.
The trade is illegal in Kenya and this is a perfect hideout.
As the tide comes in, the caves become cut off from the rest of the beach. There is a lot of dead seaweed on the floor that is used as a mattress, Peter says.
The tourists prefer girls aged 15 to 17, he adds.
Some of these men, Peter says, like to involve dogs and pay the girls up to $500 to film this.

A mini documentary on sex trafficking of Native women, with particular focus on Minnesota (Native women & girls are frequently sold on the shipping boats that travel around the Lakes, and have been for decades).
"People don’t see Native American women as humans. They see them as punching bags. Or something novel, like a new toy—it’s fun at first, but afterwards you throw it away." —Sarah El Fakahany, Sexual Assault Advocate at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center
This is very sad, I didn’t know that the Native American women and girls were part of sex trade and prostitution.
it is a very big problem, much bigger than many people realize or want to admit, even among Native communities. if you go to a truck stop anywhere near tribal communities late at night, you will see young Native girls who have been trafficked. Minnesota, Arizona, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Oregon, & Washington are particularly bad. here’s some more resources on sex trafficking of Native women:
- Shattered Hearts: the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of American Indian Women and Girls
- Young Native Girls are Being Sacrificed to the Canadian Sex Trade
- stats from the Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition
- 'Start Waking Up:' Report warns of Inuit child selling, cites anecdotal evidence of abuse, trafficking
- Native Schoolgirls Should Not Be for Sale on the Street
- Native Women Easy Prey for Traffickers
- Data Shows Link Between Oil Workers and Violence Against Native Women

There’s also the fact that Robert Pickton was able to murder poor Aboriginal women for over a decade without people giving a fuck.
Let me repeat.
It’s not that they didn’t know. The police were aware of every missing woman, the families filed claims and the founder and foremost expert in geographic profiling, Kim Rossmo, told the Vancouver PD point blank that they had a serial killer hunting the women of the Downtown East Side.
They fired Rossmo, appointed a handful of part-time underpaid staff who were expected to maintain their regular day jobs to “research” the issue, and claimed they had it under control.
Robert Pickton was arrested after he tried to murder a prostitute named Stitch, and she stabbed him in the stomach. They both ended up in the same hospital. She was barely dressed, badly wounded, with a handcuff on her wrist. He was injured and covered in her blood.
The key to the handcuff around her wrist was found in his pocket.
The prosecution dropped the case because the word of a drug-addicted prostitute wasn’t going to hold up against a white millionaire’s.
Years later, when Pickton was arrested a second time for the murder of 26 Vancouver sex workers, the mud from the boots confiscated the night of his attack on Stitch was analyzed.
It carried the DNA of SIX of the missing women.
The boots had been kept in the evidence locker of the Vancouver Police Department.
So yeah. It’s easy to buy, sell, rape and murder First Nations women. It always has been.
