We examined arrests for juvenile prostitution in the nation's 37 largest cities during a 10-year period.And keep in mind that while a 17-year-old drug addict busted for turning tricks in Baltimore is not, shall we stay, on the straight on narrow. She is not a child sex slave.
Law enforcement records show that there were only 8,263 arrests across America for child prostitution during the most recent decade.
Compare 827 annually with the 100,000 to 300,000 per year touted in the propaganda.
The nation's 37 largest cities do not give you every single underage arrest for hooking. Juveniles can go astray in rural Kansas.
But common sense prevails in the police data. As you move away from such major urban areas as Los Angeles, underage prostitution plunges.

"Real Men Get Their Facts Straight"
From the Village Voice, debunking everybody from Ashton Kutcher to CNN and the New York Times who repeat the absurd claim that there are "between 100,000 and 300,000 child sex slaves in the United States today!"
