Trafficked Teen Girls Describe Life In ‘The Game’

Last month, the FBI announced the results of Operation Cross Country V, a 40-city investigation that led to the rescue of 69 children who were being victimized through prostitution. More than 800 people, including 99 pimps, were arrested. According to the FBI, more than 100,000 children are sold for sex in the U.S. each year. In a two-part series, Youth Radio takes a look at the problem of child prostitution in the U.S. Today, two young women who recently escaped what’s called “the game” share their stories.

“I’d wake up at 5; I’d be outside by 5:30,” says Brittney, 19. “I would just wait and see what happened, whether it’d be in the streets or whether I’d be on the Internet. And then I won’t be able to come back inside until like 2 o’clock in the morning, so I’d get only, like, three hours of rest.” Brittney, a former sex worker, agreed to share her story under the condition that her real name not be used. She’s a native of Oakland, Calif., and only recently out of what’s called “the game.” Less than a year ago, Brittney was being forced to work as a prostitute on the Internet and on the streets of Oakland.
