Sex Trading and Trafficking in Minnesota: A Focus on Sex Buyers

Sex Trading and Trafficking in Minnesota: A Focus on Sex Buyers was held on January 25, 2018 as part of the Sexual Exploitation Working Group’s Lunch & Learn series.

Sex trafficking is part of a broader marketplace for commercial sex and functions along the economic principles of supply and demand. This presentation presented by Lauren Martin PhD, will share findings from two recent studies conducted in Minnesota on sex trading and trafficking that seek to better understand these market forces and how they impact people. Research shows that these market forces are in many cases built on exploitation, poverty, violence and brutality. The presentation will focus on sex buyers, which are the least well-understood aspect of the marketplace.
