Out of the Shadows - Exploitation of Boys and Men


For too long, male sexual exploitation victims have been overlooked. The media, politicians, and society at large have all failed to adequately address the experiences of boys and men involving sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse, sexual objectification, or early childhood exposure to pornography. As a result, countless men and boys suffer in silence without receiving the appropriate services for recovery.

A historic press conference was held September 7, 2017 to call attention to this underrepresented crisis.

The Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation also presented a critical  National Symposium on September 8, 2017 in Washington, DC. The event was hosted by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Washington College, and The U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking

The complex web of sexual exploitation cannot be dismantled until every survivor has a voice.
