Paul & Lisa - Help prevent sexual exploitation


Sexual exploitation of children (SEC) is a broad term referring to the illegal use of minors (under 18 years of age) for sexual purposes. It is "an extension of child sexual abuse that goes beyond the dynamics of an offender, a victim, and an act." (Lanning, K. Child Sex Rings: A Behavioral Analysis. Washington DC: National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, 1989).

SEC is a $5 billion international industry that affects both men and women. The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) estimates that at least one million children are sexually exploited each year. SEC takes on many forms:

• Child sexual abuse is the sexual use of minors, either through direct sexual contact or by exposing children to inappropriate sexual materials or activities.


• Child pornography involves the coercion of children into sexual activity for the purpose of producing, distributing or possessing print, visual, or electronic media that portrays the minors in sexual activity.

• Child prostitution is sex with minors in exchange for money. Children may be forced by their pimp to prostitute on the streets or through escort services. Under the pimp's domineering watch, or even under the control of another prostitute in the pimp's stable, they may solicit business in dance clubs, hotels, bars, restaurants, and casinos, to name but a few likely locales. Male prostitution is extremely common; Most boy prostitutes provide sexual services to other males.

• Child sex rings are the organized use of large numbers of children in the pornography and prostitution industries. Children caught up in sex rings are frequently trafficked across state lines and internationally for these purposes.
