And Boys Too

Shawn Wheeler, founder of Starfish Ministries in Loveland Colorado offers insights into the experience of male victims of sex trafficking. While several studies say boys experience levels of exploitation comparable to girls, the services available to survivors skew heavily to women and girls. Wheeler identifies several myths about boys and sex trafficking. Not only are victims not all girls, neither are all perpetrators male. He also suggests specific actions to improve the experience of male survivors of sex exploitation – for individuals, service providers, legislatures.
