Simon, a lot of them have been trafficked into it as well. I was watching Underage, Undercover on Discovery+ and it was a huge eye-opener. Girls being targeted between the ages of 12-15, perverts getting CSAM from them, to sell to other perverts.
Yeah, from what I've read recently I think there's an incredibly high probability (i.e. effectively a certainty) that anyone visiting prostitutes is raping someone, possibly a victim of child abuse. Whatever they tell themselves about it being consensual is just lies, because they don't know and don't bother to know.
Also interesting is how the prevalence of prostitution (when its legalized or decriminalized) results in huge upticks in rapes and violence against all women. There are lots of myths about the whole thing, the reality is not at all like how some portray it.
This is a SICK trade that only a true misogynist would be involved in.
