What is Listen to my Story
Child Sexual Exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse. It happens when an individual or group (offender) takes advantage by manipulating a child or young person (victim) under the age of 18 into sexual activity. This can be for two reasons:
(1) In exchange for something the young person needs or wants
(2) To gain money or increased status of the offender.
You can still be sexually exploited even if you have given consent and it does not always involve physical contact; it can also occur through the use of technology through social media and Apps.
