Sex on the street

This article describes some sophisticated pimps, but what i learned quickly in charlotte is that everything is transactional on the street, and there are lots of part time, occasional, and not quite conscious they are pimping pimps out there. It's not squalid. it's the human side of people our programs are trying to project, but sex is a refuge--often a pitiful one, a disease, a trade in poverty. We have to offer viable alternatives but we also have to understand where people are coming from.
