The Internet has created the golden age of the sex industry. It’s an 87 million dollar a day business and it is growing. The allure of pleasure is only one click away. And now it’s on your handheld device.
Thousands of new sex workers enter the trade each month. Some opt in by choice, but most don’t. Unsuspecting victims fall prey to the elaborate schemes of predators, who are charming, street smart, unscrupulous, and often violent. They know that a girl can generate upwards of $300,000 a year.
As the sheer volume mounts, so does the abundance and severity of harm. Key people, including ’good’ cops and legislators are fighting for change. In certain cities, the word ‘victim’ has replaced ‘prostitute’ and pimps face harsher sentences yet nationwide, the men – and sometimes women – who peddle girls continue on with impunity.
TRICKED is available for public screenings.
