Surprisingly, the adolescents involved and not involved in prostitution did not differ in terms of child sexual abuse: rates of child Karnes city TX sex dating abuse were similar in Fuck Kastelruth sluts two groups, as were the circumstances surrounding the abuse, including the relationships between perpetrators and victims.
Notably, the commercially sexually exploited youth had ificantly higher rates of running away from home see the discussion of this factor below ; Dominica wife swapping finding suggests that it may not be the child sexual abuse alone but its consequences that heighten the risk for commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors. In fact, Jesson and Nadon and colleagues argue that early maltreatment, family dysfunction, and running away are so closely linked that it may well be the running away that puts youth directly at risk.
Thus the literature suggests that there are multiple possible indirect pathways to commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors. A of researchers have offered explanations for why child Milton mills NH milf personals may create vulnerability to commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors.
Stoltz and colleaguesp.

In support of the above propositions regarding the indirect pathways through which child maltreatment increases the risk for commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors, ample evidence documents associations between child sexual abuse and outcomes that have been linked with these crimes.
For example, victims of child sexual abuse may begin to engage in sexual activity at earlier ages than nonvictims Fergusson et al.
