  33. 33. Primary Demand <ul><li>Men who purchase sex acts are all ages and come from all socioeconomic levels, all occupation categories, and ethnic/racial groups. Their behavior to buy a sex act is a choice. </li></ul>Donna Hughes. Best Practices to End Demand . 2004.
  34. 34. The Path to Exploitation <ul><li>Tertiary Demand (culture): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Media promotion of a culture of prostitution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Male privilege/flattery of men’s sexual promiscuity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other cultural attitudes, religious practices and values: e.g. value of girl children/familial duty/temple prostitution/dowry systems/virgin myths (virgin cure/sexual virility) and rape stigma </li></ul></ul>Image source: Internet.

  36. 36. Understanding Traumatic Bonding <ul><li>Captivity, which brings the victim into prolonged contact with the perpetrator, creates a special type of relationship, one of coercive control.* </li></ul><ul><li>The goal of the perpetrator is to instill in his victim not only fear of death but also gratitude for being allowed to live. * </li></ul><ul><li>Attachment between hostage and captor is the rule rather than the exception.* </li></ul><ul><li>(*Dr. Judith Herman, Trauma and Recovery, 1992.) </li></ul>
  37. 37. Understanding Survival Strategies <ul><li>“ As people find the best way to survive, some of their behaviors may raise questions if viewed out of context. For example, the woman’s and adolescent girl’s flirtatiousness, seeking out clients, and getting clients to feel pity or love for them may represent strategies aimed at enhancing their survival.” </li></ul><ul><li>(Wendy Freed, “From Duty to Despair: Brothel Prostitution in Cambodia.” Prostitution, Trafficking and Traumatic Stress . 2003. </li></ul>

  42. 42. Understanding the Impact <ul><li>“ Sexual trauma is unique from other forms of trauma. It is a violation of the most intimate and personal aspects of the self.
