IZCARA PALACIOS, Simón Pedro. Sex trafficking in Mexico from procurers’ perspective. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2021, vol.29, n.57, pp.221-251.  Epub Sep 06, 2021. ISSN 0188-7653.

This article analyzes procurers’ discourse about the problem of sex trafficking in Mexico. A qualitative methodology was used, and ninety procurers were interviewed (33 males and 57 females). This research concludes that, according to Mexican procurers, sex trafficking in Mexico is a growing phenomenon, which is nourished both by the deceptive or forced recruitment of Central American women and the enforced disappearances of Mexican women, who are exploited in places far from where they were abducted, to serve customers of high economic resources.

Keywords : prostitution; sex trafficking; procurers; customers; organized crime; Mexico.
