    In some poor Indian villages, girls are trained from birth for a life of sexual servitude in order to feed their families.Like many Indian girls, Suchitra was taught her future profession by her mother. In her village, there was only one path. Even before she’d reached puberty, Suchitra had learned different sexual positions and other ways to please a customer. At age 14, a man she had never seen before showed up one day at the family’s house near Bharatpur in northern India. At her mother’s urging, Suchitra got into his car. Six hours later they reached their destination. It...

    ( – Reports about a fatwa urging young girls to travel to Syria to provide sexual services for jihadist rebels are causing a stir in Tunisia, while also drawing attention to the Islamic concept – little-known in the West and controversial among Muslims themselves – of “temporary marriage.” Girls as young as 14 are counted as eligible for the “sexual jihad,” and around a dozen young Tunisians are believed to have taken up the call, attributed to an influential Saudi scholar, Sheikh Mohamed al-Arifi. The pan-Arabic Al-Hayat newspaper reported this week that a video circulating on social media sites in...

    Want a sexual slave? That is the question hundreds of thousands answer each year, as they purchase a child or young person from traffickers in a multibillion-dollar international business known as the global sex trade. When in many countries a young woman can be kidnapped for $500 and yield $250,000 annually from sexual servitude, it doesn't take much economic ingenuity to understand why corrupt capitalists crave some buy-in to this repulsive form of commerce. These victims of sexual slavery come from some of the most well-known sexually trafficked areas in the world, including Cambodia, Thailand, Latin America, Eastern Europe (countries...

    The Russian military is reported to be investigating claims that army conscripts were forced to work as male prostitutes in St Petersburg. The command of the interior ministry unit denied the claims made by the Soldiers' Mothers human rights group. The group says it was contacted by a parent of a conscript who had been forced to work as a male prostitute. Last year, an 18-year-old soldier was so badly beaten that he had to have his legs and genitals amputated. The BBC's James Rodgers in Moscow says the latest claims follow a series of scandals which have damaged the...

    COVER STORYGlobal ShameEach year, millions of women and girls are sold into sexual slavery worldwide. Why isn't the Bush State Department doing more to end their nightmare? Trafficking CopsPrivate activists laboring to rescue child sex slaves and abolish sex trafficking around the world have put together a remarkable coalition. But they face a similarly remarkable opponent: bureaucratic inertia and—shockingly—publicly funded organizations that want sex trafficking professionalized. "You cannot clean this up," counters the Bush administration—yet the State Department stands in the way of its abolition.By: Bob Jones With his pressed, white shirt and slicked-back hair, the young Thai man comes...
