The fall of #Backpage has altered the marketplace of online sex trafficking. This happened days before the recent #FOSTA #SESTA legislation was signed into federal law. It has been a great victory for all who work every day to #endtrafficking.
However, the demand for anonymous, impersonal, object-driven sex remains, and so the fight continues. The Village A-Team discovered a site that provides a glimpse of the human side of the women that have survived this life. The narrative and the videos reveal how these women really think and feel about their exploitation, and the tragic impact it has on them.
These videos are targeted at the men that have bought or are considering buying women for sex. It is an important message that breaks down the myth that women freely choose this life that is so prevalent in America today.
Caution: These videos are for mature viewers only.

Polaris analyzed more than 32,000 cases of human trafficking documented between December 2007 and December 2016 through its operation of the National Human Trafficking Hotline and BeFree Textline—the largest data set on human trafficking in the United States ever compiled and publicly analyzed. Polaris’s research team analyzed the data and developed a classification system that identifies 25 types of human trafficking in the United States. Each has its own business model, trafficker profiles, recruitment strategies, victim profiles, and methods of control that facilitate human trafficking.
