Unholy Nexus: Male Child Sexual Exploitation in Pilgrim Tourism Sites in India
June 15, 2008

Unholy Nexus - Male Child Sexual Exploitation in Pilgrim Tourism Sites in IndiaPublic Opinion is on the rise about child sexual exploitation by tourists in India. But, little has been done to study and protect male children from prostitution. This research conducted in 2008, investigates the extent and nature of child sexual exploitation in the pilgrim tourist sites – Tirupati (Andhra Pradesh), Puri (Orissa) and Guruvayoor (Kerala). The study identifies key actors who are involved in and/or facilitate prostitution of male children. The study documents the causes, circumstances, locations and profile of these children and the context in which such sexual exploitation continues unchecked. While the research focuses on the male child, many of the findings and recommendations are equally applicable to female children in similar context.
