Lust for minors growing in India, says survey

http://www.hindustantimes.com /storypage/storypage.aspx?id=8f44ac77-4428-42f3-ae17-6f446539e3f8&&Headline='Lust+for+minors+growing+in+India'

Lewis said that a recent study of trafficked women in Nepal to India had revealed that there is an increased demand for younger women. In 1980s, women between 14-16 were preferred, then the age in 1990s went down to 10-14 and now it is even less than 10 years.

Study of trafficked women in Nepal showed that 60 per cent of positive HIV cases were of girls below the age of 15. And, all of them had got the disease from their male clients going for unprotected sex because the kids are not in a position to protest.

The Child Porn Pipeline
A child victim's story of betrayal and despair

By Lou Michel
10/15/07

http://www.buffalonews.com/home/story/184849. html

A majority of the children are under 13 years old and increasingly include toddlers and infants. “We are seeing younger and younger [victims],” Lear said. “It’s every age kid you could imagine. Very brutal. That’s very common now.”

“These guys are raping infants and toddlers,” said Flint Waters, an investigator with the federal Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. “You can hear the child crying, pleading for help in the video. It is horrendous.”

Subcategory: pimps getting younger

Police say teen pimp lures girls into illegal sex in Dallas
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
By REBECCA LOPEZ / WFAA-TV

Investigators said the 13-year-old lured other girls to Club Metropolis, enticing them with the promise of money and even forcing some of them to dance and sell their bodies for sex.

Police estimate there are hundreds of teenage prostitutes on the streets of Dallas because there is a big demand. Recently, they found a 12-year-old girl dancing naked at a nightclub.

Police said the young girls aren't acting alone. They say some of the same people who are pimping out the adult prostitutes are the same ones exploiting young girls.

A horrible achievement
Atlanta's child prostitution business is booming

http://atlanta.creativeloafing .com/gyrobase/a_horrible_achievement/Content?oid=66047

Published 04.26.06
By John F. Sugg

According to the FBI, Atlanta is among 14 cities vying for child prostitution capital of America.

Even more disturbing for Espy was finding a photo of a girl no older than 5, posed for prostitution. "We still don't know who she was," Espy says.

About a dozen girls each month go through the Atlanta juvenile court system as victims of sexual exploitation. Typically, they're 10 to 14 years old, and the average age is getting younger.

"The men prefer children because they often think there's less chance of disease," says Emmett. "That's not the case."

Sometimes I can't understand how some people still dare call prostitution "sex work" when this kind of shit so commonly happens. This is so awfully sad... :cry:
"The assumption that "most women are innately heterosexual'' stands as a theoretical and political stumbling block for many women. It remains a tenable assumption, partly because lesbian existence has been written out of history or catalogued under disease;. . . partly because to acknowledge that for women heterosexuality may not be a "preference" at all but something that has had to be imposed, managed, organized, propagandized and maintained by force is an immense step to take if you consider yourself freely and "innately" heterosexual. Yet the failure to examine heterosexuality as an institution is like failing to admit that the economic system called capitalism or the caste system of racism is maintained by a variety of forces, including both physical violence and false consciousness. . ."

The age of entry is going down nationally, as Denver demonstrates with it's younger-than-averageness that won't be for long.

Prostitute Numbers Expected to Jump During DNC
J. C. OConnell, Colorado Confidential on April 16, 2008

Women in Denver typically enter prostitution at the age of 11 or 12, slightly younger than the national average, Sharp said.

Software tracks child porn traffickers online

By Wendy Koch, USA TODAY
http://www.usatoday .com/news/nation/2008-04-15-childporn-side_N.htm

Bell says child porn has become more graphic, involving ever younger children. "Five years ago, I never saw babies," he says, and now there are "baby rape rooms" and videos of newborns. He says traffickers are savvier, too, using more encryption and new ways to distribute it, including cellphones.

Surprise pimp, associates sentenced to prison
by Brent Whiting - Apr. 4, 2008
The Arizona Republic

In Hill's case, Phoenix investigators said they identified at least three girls, ages 14 to 17, they believe he used as child prostitutes .

Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said such cases "speak to a tragic trend of pimps seeking younger and younger girls to engage in acts of prostitution."

It also speaks to some elements of pop culture that glamorize prostitution, he said.

Oakland pimps prey on youth

By Kamika Dunlap and Barbara Grady, Apr 21, 2008
http://www.mercurynews .com/crime/ci_8995639

The Internet and cell phones also made it easier for pimps to prey on children. And social workers say even popular culture plays a role. The glorification of sex and pimping in music and fashion sends a message the lifestyle is OK.

Now the children are younger than ever before, and the problem is bigger than anyone imagined.

Pimps can earn more for younger, healthier and prettier girls. Girls age 11 and 12 can earn as much as $500 a day for their pimps, police say.

sam, have you ever used this argument before:
if a girl enters prostitution at the age of 13, we don't call it a choice.
however, if she survives until age 18 and is still prostituting, we call it a choice.
if the average prostitute enters at age 13, doesn't that mean the average prostitute is a former illegal child prostitute who "aged into" consent?
maybe you can make that sound more eloquent.
I guess some slavery feels like freedom.

Not only do I frequently mention the 13-year-old fact, I just happened to have done so last week at Portland Indymedia.

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2008/0 ... ml?discuss

The average age of entry into US prostitution is 13-years-old. In Portland it is 13, and the New York City nonprofit GEMS reports that the average age of entry into prostitution in NYC has fallen to 12-years-old.

Unless it is Happy Sex Worker's contention that "many" 13-year-olds willingly choose to become prostitutes, then it stands that most prostitutes began as children serially raped until eventually they turned 18 and their countless rapes were forgotten once capitalism's cold cock declared them "workers of sex".

At the forum, about 60 outreach workers, defense attorneys, prosecutors and police officers listened, often nodding in agreement as Boyer unveiled her findings. Eileen Corcoran, who does outreach on Pacific Highway, said she sees ever more girls who are ever younger.

Children who are sold for sex (the majority are female) typically range in age from 11 to 17, with some as young as 9 years old. Once they have been lured or forced into prostituting themselves, these children are subjected to a full range of injuries, diseases, pregnancies, mental issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression and drug addiction, not to mention criminal and delinquency charges if they are caught. For those who are �rescued� out of the system, the stigma of having once been part of the sex trade is hard to overcome.

'Dating cafes' fostering child prostitution
Hiroaki Mori, Eiichiro Matsumoto and Yasushi Kaneko / Yomiuri Shimbun
October 7, 2008

Cases of child prostitution involving dating-service cafes have been increasing sharply
, prompting some local governments to take measures such as banning people under 18 from entering such establishments.

According to the NPA's data, the first cases of child prostitution and sexual abuse involving the dating-service cafes surfaced in 2007, with 26 such incidents reported.

This year, there had been 22 such cases as of the end of August, including incidents involving two middle school students. This reflects a trend in which the ages of female customers is dropping.

Zimbabwe: Poverty, Hunger Force Girls Into Prostitution
Nelson Chenga
Financial Gazette distributed by AllAfrica Global Media (allAfrica.com)
6 December 2008

As the night grew darker at Nyamapanda business centre a jukebox could be heard at one of the night spots loudly playing one of Yvonne Chaka Chaka's 1980s hit songs "Take my love it's free."

But unfortunately the main reason for attending the show was purely entertainment in an area starved of other forms of amusements outside the consumption of alcohol and prostitution, a trade that has taken root in the remote settlement and increasingly attracting younger members as poverty and hunger take their toll.

Increased traffic of Zimbabweans travelling to the border town to buy food across in Mozambique has also attracted scores of villagers among them the young girls whose youthfulness is an instant attraction to male prostitutes.

"Female prostitutes here are getting younger. Some of them must be in Grade Seven," said one reveller downing a can of beer as he waited for the show to begin.

Economic Slump Drives More Teenage Girls into Prostitution
http://www.koreatimes .co.kr/www/news/nation/2009/01/117_38655.html
By Bae Ji-sook
Korea Times Staff Reporter

The prolonged economic slump is driving more teenagers out on the streets to sell sex, the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs said Thursday.

The ministry's Central Inspection Bureau enforced a crackdown on the online teenage sex trade between July and December last year and found the number of teenagers caught nearly doubled to 69 from 36 six months ago.

Brothels in Ecuador Skirt Law Banning Minors
http://www.womensenews .org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/4002

Jacklyn said she is 22 years old, but doesn't look it. When pressed for her age, she admitted to entering the business at 15, but said a growing number in Esmeraldas are starting out as young as 12. That is three years younger than the national average age of minors who entered the sex industry in 2006.

The age of consent is 14 in Ecuador and teenagers can start working age 15.

In December, a young woman entered Las Canitas--a brothel run by Quinonez's sister-- wearing a blonde wig. Quinonez told Women's eNews that she suspected the girl was a minor but the young woman insisted she was 19. Maruja, Quinonez's sister, hired her. She ended up in the emergency room, with her vagina ripped apart by her 22nd client.

Former US Teenage Prostitutes Escape Brutal Street Life
http://www.voanews. com/english/2009-06-18-voa70.cfm

"I prostituted since I was 10-years-old," said Monica. "The first time I ran away from home, it was with this guy. He was 17 and I told him that I was 15. And I decided I wanted to leave because I lost my virginity the day before that, so I thought, OK, let me just run the streets. And having sex was fun, so I just thought it would be fun, but it was not."
I guess some slavery feels like freedom.
