Is sex slavery a myth?
Sex slavery, also called “white slavery,” is quite real. In some parts of the world, raptio and bride kidnapping is even an enculturated practice.
In many cultures ranging from East Asia, Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and Mesoamerica, there are common cultural practices of bride kidnapping. The processes vary, but often have subsisted as traditions for securing mates through exploiting cultural views. In many instances, a man of low social status due to poverty, criminality, or disease will attempt to kidnap, rape, and impregnate a woman in order to violate social stigmas of premarital sex. This stigma typically limits the eligibility of marriage for the victim, procuring her as a wife and potential personal sex slave due to the patriarchal nature of the society.
Yet, there is also larger scale commercial sex slavery. This form of sex slavery often encompasses the abduction and human trafficking of women and sometimes children, placing the victims into situations of forced prostitution and personal sex slaves. Typically the source countries of the human trafficking is from economically impoverished regions and areas of unrest often due to corruption, war, or natural disaster to other more affluent countries, usually those with lax prostitution laws and enforcement. Sometimes this practice merely takes place within a corrupt government system which conspires to cover up the practice, yet mostly an international underground is involved in the movement of sex slaves to all parts of the globe. Underground human trafficking varies in the magnitude of the system. In some cases, organizations are integrated to manage all aspects of the the system, such as in the former Soviet Bloc countries, Hong Kong, Japan, and Colombia. These tend to be tied to larger criminal organizations such as the Yakuza and drug cartels as they firmly possess the resources and infrastructure for the movement of controlled substances. Yet in many other cases, smaller groups work in tandem such that one handles recruiting victims, one transporting, and so on. In some cases, this underground system networks with corrupt governments. In any case, there is rarely any prosecution of human trafficking.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the most common sources of victims of the white slavery trade originate in countries including: Thailand, China, Nigeria, Albania, Bulgaria, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine. Thailand, Japan, Israel, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Turkey and the US serve as some of the top destinations for human trafficking. Nonetheless, once appropriated by an affording patriarch, the woman (or child) is then placed in a role of domestic servitude and provides sexual services.
The only potential myth about sex slavery is the legend from antiquity The Rape of the Sabine Women.
