Trafficking for sexual exploitation can take on different forms: more visible ones, as in the case of street prostitution, but mostly clandestine ones, operating in brothels or private homes. Public venues, such as massage parlours and strip clubs can also be used for trafficking and sexual exploitation. Violence is a common tool used for controlling victims and they are sometimes raped by their traffickers, and drugged to prevent them from escaping. Even when victims know that they are being recruited for providing sexual services, they can still end up in exploitive situations and suffer deception, coercion or violence.
