Sex trafficking is an increasingly flourishing business of organized crime and the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world. In the United States alone, human trafficking is a $9.8 billion industry.
Sex trafficking is a lucrative business operating under an ensconced business model: distribution (the traffickers), supply (the victims), and demand (the buyers). When demand escalates, supply intensifies to meet this demand. In contrast, if demand decreases, the supply will decrease.
The demand of buyers for commercial sex acts creates a need for a supply, fueled by sex trafficking victims. This makes buyers the driving force behind sex trafficking. Therefore, addressing demand is the most immediate and effective way to stop sex trafficking.
