Sex trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act. This is induced by force, fraud, or coercion/manipulation. Although, for individuals under the age of 18, force, fraud, or coercion does not need to be proven to be considered sex trafficking, although those elements are often present. Additionally, sex trafficking does not just happen to young women, it happens to all genders.
