Although men are integral to sexual exploitation of all kinds, little empirical research exists about them in the context of sex trafficking. Research and treatment of sex trafficking have been based primarily on the experiences of women and girls as trafficked victims. The networks of traffickers, the characteristics of men who consume sex, and the experiences of boys and men, including LGBTQ youth as victims are not well understood. This panel addresses these issues. The panel begins with an examination of the characteristics, attitudes and behaviors of men who buy sex. The next presentation explores the dynamics of men that become human traffickers. The focus then shifts to boys and men as survivors. The special vulnerability of LGBTQ youth is discussed. Finally, the lived experience of one survivor is presented, with suggestions for best practices in working with male survivors. Finally, the Discussant will outline the links between sexual exploitation and masculinity ideology, setting the stage for a more general discussion.
