ESPN: Prostitution and Sex Trafficking Increase during World Cup

ESPN: Prostitution and Sex Trafficking Increase during World Cup

The 2010 World Cup is underway in South Africa and so is the increase in prostitution and sex trafficking.  This information doesn’t come from UFI and other anti-prostitution groups, but from the sports news giant ESPN.   In a detailed investigative report, ESPN details how the prostitution and sex trafficking industry thrives during major sports events.   Pro-prostitution groups such as the West Coast Cooperative of Sex Industry Professionals purport to have research and studies showing the opposite.

Common sense, however, would tell you that wherever you have large groups of men gathering, especially for sporting events, the demand for prostitution would go up.  When the demand goes up, enterprising “business people” (pimps) are sure to capitalize on it and work to increase the supply.   Basic economics.   But where is that supply going to come from?  How many women and young girls do you know that are willingly go to sign up for a “career” in prostitution?   Pimps produce the “supply” through trafficking in deceived and unwilling women and young girls.  It is a multi-billion dollar industry.

But don’t believe us.  ESPN has taken the time to shed some light on the seedy underbelly of prostitution and sex trafficking at the 2010 World Cup.   Caution:  Video contains graphic scenes and content. http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=5253283
