Male minors may make up as much as 45% of the population of commercially sexual exploited youth. Many of these boys engage in sexual activity to meet their basic needs. Some studies argue that family services are the most essential service needed to prevent male involvement in Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) and domestic minor sex trafficking. Homelessness is the primary risk factor cited for male minors who are involved in CSEC, and male minors most frequently become homeless due to family dysfunction.
This fact sheet addresses unique issues that apply to boys and young men who are victims and survivors of CSEC and domestic minor sex trafficking.
