WHAT IS A PG?

  

A PureGirl is one who is pure, whole, virtuous and modest.

 

We focus on the whole person--the physical, mental and spiritual aspect of each girl's life.

 

 

Being a PG is about making choices—choices that are right, choices that will shape teens’ lives and the individuals they become.  It’s about knowing who you are and believing in yourself.

Teen Sex Trafficking & Exploitation

 

The National Human Trafficking Hotline is:

(888) 373-7888

 

In this new world of hi-tech information (Facebook, texting, skyping, Instagram, on-line dating, etc.), our adolescent girls and young women will become well informed of the dangers in which these avenues can be used to exploit minors.

 

Teen sex trafficking and exploitation is no longer a Thailand, Phillipine, Mexico problem.  It's found its way in our neighborhoods and is one of the most shocking crimes occurring in Georgia, and chances are you don't even know it exists.  Often a family member or a friend of the family has already abused the minor.

 

Men no longer travel to Rio to have sex with a teen.  They are now traveling right here in our own backyard.

 

Teen girls are the “new crack” as a victim of sex trafficking. Several gangs are in on it. They call themselves guerrilla pimps. They're literally snatching girls off the street, breaking them down and forcing them into prostitution, having them turn 10-20 tricks a day. The younger the better. Pimping girls is easier, cheaper and less likely to get the predator shot or landed in jail for any serious time. And unlike a kilo, one girl can be sold over and over and over again. There's a ready supply and an endless demand.

 

There's also the Casanova/Romeo pimp. He gains the teen girl's trust and breaks down her support system and self-esteem. He treats her to meals, buys her clothes and makes her think that he loves her. Later she's coerced into submission through gang rape, confinement, beatings, torture, cutting, tattooing, burning, branding, being deprived of basic needs, and threats of murder.

 

Pimpin' is high tech now because of the Internet. That's where they make the real money. They don't have to have girls walking the streets. They arrange everything over the Internet. They set up a motel room and just run the Johns in and out at one hundred, two hundred dollars a pop, earning $150,000 per year for her pimp.

 

STATISTICS ON TEEN SEX TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION IN GEORGIA

 

  • A study done a few years ago by the Schapiro Group that 42 percent of calls for sexual services are coming from the suburbs outside Atlanta.”

 

  • The most common age of entry into the commercial sex industry is 12-14 years of age. 

 

  • Each month, 300-500 girls are commercially sexually exploited throughout Georgia and the numbers are steadily and rapidly growing.

 

  • On average, 100 juvenile girls are exploited each night in Georgia and the number is steadily and rapidly growing.

 

  • 7,200 men pay for sex with adolescent females in Georgia each month and the number is steadily and rapidly growing.

The rules of sexuality have changed. Todays teenagers have a different set of values about sex, easier access to contraceptives and abortion and less fears about sexually transmitted disease such as herpes and HIV/AIDS. While sex can be very easy to come by today, without the proper education it can also literally kill and send you to prison.
