PLEASE read Sex Trafficking of Americans: The Girls Next Door from Vanity Fair. It is an older article from May 2011, but nevertheless it is an amazing read!
While it is a bit long, 8 pages, it is a very well written, comprehensive and deep analysis of prostitution in America. It centers around Alicia and Gwen, two prostitutes, who were forced to sell their bodies for money (none of which they saw). It recounts their days in prostitution, their “escape” and facing their pimps in court.
