The countries that Professor Mattar identified have all experienced a surge in tourism due to the availability of cheap airfares and hotel rooms. Emerging from the oppression of the Khmer Rouge and Pol PotCambodia's yearly foreign visitors have grown since fromto more than a million.
The main attraction for these visitors is the temples of Angkor Wat. However, as the result of the rapidly developing tourist economies, many in these countries also have discovered that money can be made from tourists willing to pay for sex.
Pierre Legros, the director of AFESIP Acting for Women in Distressing Situationsa refuge and rehabilitation center for rescued sex workers in Cambodia, asserts that approximately 6, child sex offences are committed daily in Asia. Activists working toward better prosecution of sex tourism estimate that Cambodia, alone, employs 20, child prostitutes, some as young as ten years old. Rescued sex workers estimate that as many as half of these workers are sold into the business, some by their families.
Local activists believe that one of the impediments to deterring sex tourism is tolerance of the trade based on the local attitude that children are a commodity to pull a family from poverty. Therefore, buying children for sex is acceptable. Education programs intended to change this view are seen by some locals as anti-family, since the child prostitute is often alleviating a family's poverty.
