Warning Signs of Sex Trafficking in Hotels

For the many who are traveling to the Super Bowl or even whenever you  travel, these are warning signs to watch for sex trafficking. Hotel and motel industry workers are being trained to watch for these warning signs, especially during this weekend for the Super Bowl where massive numbers are expected.

  1. In many countries, the pimps and the patrons (“johns”) are the ones who get busted, as opposed to the prostitutes. I think this is good policy because the prostitutes are often more of a victim.

      • The prostitutes may not be totally “innocent,” but often they are controlled and bullied by the pimps, and they may not have enough money, skills, or friends and family to get out of the situation. Undoubtedly, some may have grown up as orphans, etc.

      • That is so true. Whatever the cause of prostitutes ending up “willfully” in that situation, it is the result of a brokenness that lead them down the wrong path. God’s grace and mercy is sufficient to cover all. He knows the depths of the wounds of our spirits and souls and loves the broken. He is the Key to overcoming everything. Thanks for your support and may God bless you!
