According to (Polaris project,2014) “Sex trafficking occurs when people are forced or coerced into the commercial sex trade against their will. . Child sex trafficking includes any child involved in commercial sex”. The sex traffickers usually target people who have vulnerable backgrounds like poor, orphans, abused people and children. They trap their victims by false promises, threats, lies, force or control. Sex trafficking happens in brothels, hostess clubs, online escorts services, strip clubs and in street prostitution. Since the money involved in this trade is high the victim indulges in it for benefits. The human sex trafficking need to be fought from the root and this is not an easy task. Many women from third world countries are pushed in to sex trade daily from which they cannot escape. Human trafficking is a challenge for government authorities nowadays and it not an easy task to stop it as the activity has assimilated in to the society in a complex way
Human trafficking is a result of weakness and helplessness rather than a voluntary activity. Human sex trafficking is an evil that has many reasons .One of it is poverty and can be seen that many victims of human sex trafficking are poor people. People living in extreme poverty are given hopes of well paid jobs and are trapped in to this commercial trade. The person making the promises is a trafficker which the victim is not aware of. They are transported to a foreign country and then sexually exploited. Another reason for ending in this trade is due t o debt which they are unable to pay off. For the need of money they get trapped in false promises and opportunities.
