Sexual exploitation is sexual abuse through the exchange of sex or sexual acts for drugs, food, shelter, protection, other basics of life, and/or money. Sexual exploitation also includes involving children and youth in creating pornography and sexually explicit websites.
This can happen to children, youth and adults, males and females. Very often, the person who is doing the exploitation is known to the person being exploited. It can be a family member, friend, neighbor, or even a boyfriend or husband.
If you think that you’ve been abused in any way, including being sexually exploited or sexually abused, there is help. An advocate at Sojourner Family Peace Center can help you understand what has happened and what options are available to you.
