Post traumatic Stress Disorder and Under Age Sex Work



Abstract: This study explores the rate of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a small group of adult sex workers and looks at its relation to under age sex work. In this study people were asked about how they became involved in underage commercial sexual activity, their support systems, about the effects of any trauma they had experienced, and any traumatic disorder including suicidal ideation since starting sex work. This small study supported the literature that suggested that those with a disrupted childhood of sexual and physical abuse and teenage commercial sexual activity are likely to have higher rates of PTSD than average
