What is sexual exploitation?

Sexual exploitation is the exchange of sex, sexual favours or sexual images for anything.  For example, money, food, clothing, shelter, drugs, alcohol, popularity, acknowledgement or affection. An exchange could be one person providing another person with sexual images and in return getting new clothes.

Although anyone can find themselves in a sexually exploitative situation, young people under the age of 19 are more at risk than others.
