Top 3 Types of Sex Trafficking

  • Domestic Pimp (“control trafficking”)
  • Asain Massage Parlor ( massage parlor which includes sexual benefits)
  • Latino Residential Brothels (home/location where several females live, often within a normal residential community. Men come to the brothel to pay for sex)

**However, Gang Pimping is climbing the ladder quickly!

There Are Two Main Categories Of Pimps


Romeo Pimp                                                                 

  • Compliments
  • Gifts
  • Declares his love
  • “Pretty Woman” life
  • modeling

Gorilla Pimp

  • Force (physically/emotionaly abusive)
  • Kidnapping
  • Usually someone they know
  • Missing Children
  • Drugs/Alcohol

The characteristics of these two types of Pimps are quite opposite, however, both are effective under certain circumstances. Both of these Pimps “groom” their prospective “victims” by using various methods. Regardless of the method, it is important to be aware of the “signs” for the sake of prevention.
