8. What's the difference between prostitution and sex trafficking?

The key distinction between prostitution and sex trafficking is the means of how a person is prostituted - through the use of force, fraud or coercion. However, the crime of trafficking for the purpose of commercial sex of those under the age of 18 does not need to show force, fraud or coercion. Commercial sex or prostitution involving anyone under 18 is human trafficking and those who are prostituted are considered trafficking victims.
