THE PURPOSE OF STOPTRAFFICKINGDEMAND.COM
The booming demand for trafficked women and children in recent years is due in part to the proliferation of pornography. The purpose of this site is to bring together research and personal accounts to help the public understand one of the major factors creating and driving the demand for trafficked women and children.
Government officials, leaders, celebrities and the general public are calling for increased efforts to stop sex trafficking. However, it must be recognized that unless something is done to curb the demand, we will never solve the problem of this exploitation. Instead, the problem will continue to overwhelm our society.
The different types of sexual exploitation are seamlessly intertwined. Pornography, sexually oriented businesses, strip clubs, prostitution and sex trafficking are all incontestably linked. It is time we stop ignoring the continuum of exploitation in order to start solving the problem
