James regularly bought women to get him off. He drove the track downtown on McMicken St. and picked up a girl every week or so. He didn’t feel guilt over his lifestyle; after all, he was providing these women with the money they needed for food and shelter.
After being arrested for soliciting the services of a prostitute, James was sentenced to attend a John School program. Hearing stories first-hand of what life is like for a woman being trafficked by men like him, the stories of abuse, violence, and rape, James began to see the world he participated in and stopped paying for sex.
Thank you for coming to see Traffick at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. We welcome you to continue the discussion on sex slavery in our community by sharing your experience in the comments.
