    This is one of those subjects you hear very little about, and like opiod use, it is growing, and America says "so what":

    You really should go to this site, and educate yourselves, and then contact your congress critter, and see what he/she is doing about it:

    https://www.wearethorn.org/child-sexual-exploitation-and-technology/

    "A large part of our work comes from informed research collected in the field, which helps our team, along with our many partners, remain on the cutting edge of technology. Sometimes we conduct primary research and bring new information to field, such as establishing that 63% of child sex trafficking victims (we surveyed) were advertised online, and 42% of sextortion victims met perpetrators online.

    We also recognize that we can’t tackle every research question and so we rely on outside research and statistics to better understand the scope of the problem. We keep in mind that this is a tough space to measure. Available estimates have limitations and should be used with care. Specifically, the number of at-risk children is difficult to know with any certainty as reported cases are lower than total cases."
