Long Story Short:
This gripping documentary follows two police men in Washington as they declare war to human trafficking. They try to bust as many pimps as possible and help the girls who were forced to “turn tricks” on the street. It also includes interviews of women who tell their story about how they got into this business.

Review:
Rape for Profit shows the downside of prostitution and why it is illegal in so many states. The stories of what some women had to go through are very heavy and might even make you cry. The documentary gives an insight on a topic that everyone should already know about – a bad childhood leads to running away, a nice guy comes along that makes them trust him, and suddenly they end up doing things they never wanted to do – but even though it doesn’t bring anything new to the table, it sticks with you and certain statements make you think. If a business lives of its customers, and people know about those horrible things street hookers have to go through, and yet they still pick them up for sex, what does that say about our society? At the same time I believe that prostitution being illegal makes it harder to track down human traffickers. If prostitution was legal in all states, and brothels were allowed in certain areas, it would be much easier to have random checks, and a certain transparency would have to be provided. After all not everyone is forced into prostitution. But that’s just my opinion. Bottom Line is as long as there are people who support this dirty business it will never die.

Rating: 6.5/10

*I don’t think we can talk about “enjoying” in this particular case but I think you know what I mean.
