Prostitution and the Child Sex Trade
Continuing the book’s treatment of vice tourism by U.S. travelers to Mexico, this chapter addresses the seduction of illicit flesh that brought generations of U.S. youth across the border to lose their virginity in bordertown brothels. Prostitution flourished in the border towns after U.S. towns closed their red-light districts in the early 1900s, luring youth and servicemen south of the border in the ensuing decades. Today, the scourge of child prostitution draws U.S. sex tourists into Mexico, and vice also crosses the border in the other direction by means of an active sex trafficking network that delivers undocumented Mexican youth victims to U.S. johns.
