It is unfortunately very likely that the 2012 London Olympics could become a magnet for human traffickers bringing in prostitutes and illegal sex trade workers according to the British Government.
I think in this day and age, it’s a sad reality of any major sports event. Anytime a huge sports event consists of the gathering of males from out of town filling up the hotels in the city, you can count on a lot of them looking for good sports in and out of the bedroom. The sex traffickers/ slave owners are ultimately business men. They go where the demand is. If there is no demand for cheap sex, there is no sex trafficking.
Demand for sex drives men to prostitutes. Demand for low-cost sex drives men to slaves.
Please read article below regarding the 2012 Olympics and how that affects sex trafficking in that area. Like I said, I really think this is a trend with all major sporting events around the world. In the same logic, I don’t see why there couldn’t be a larger anti-trafficking task force put in place in the host cities before and during these events. In my opinion, governments should bring in special anti-trafficking investigators and law enforcement teams to sniff out all major strip joints, escort services, massage parlors known brothels and ANY hint of especially under aged girls being forced into prostitution. Or even better: conduct surprised raids of these shady establishments all throughout the duration of the event. Now, if we can only make sure that those same law enforcement officers don’t fall for the bribes of the organized criminals… Wouldn’t that be lovely?
