Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Boys and Men

July 25, 2022 | 10:00am


The national dialogue of commercial sexual exploitation has largely focused on the exploitation of girls while the exploitation of boys has been overlooked. This training will discuss male sexual abuse and stigmas of masculinity as well as the challenges of identifying male abuse victims. The trainer will then discuss pathways of entry into sexual exploitation and commercial sex industry for males.
