Meaningful Differences: Comparison of Adult Women Who First Traded Sex as a Juvenile Versus as an Adult
Hearst, Mary O
Violence against women 2010 Nov; 16(11): 1252-69
The authors analyzed experiences, characteristics, and risks of adult women who trade sex in Minneapolis, MN (n = 117), and found significant differences between women who first traded sex as a juvenile compared with those who first traded sex as an adult. Adult starters were 3.44 times more likely to use drugs prior to their first sex trade. They were also more likely to have children. Juvenile starters were more likely to trade sex prior to their first instance of drug use and they had worse outcomes in most other domains that were measured. The study findings showed that they can be useful in shaping prevention of prostitution and methods to be used for its intervention.
