It is widely reported that predatory sex traffickers and willing customers convene in the host cities of national events like the Super Bowl to negotiate the price of their victims. Data on the link between sex trafficking and the Super Bowl, however, is limited – to the extent that the lack of data is a talking point in the national dialogue. Competently executed inquiries report estimated victim counts in the host city of up to 10,000 for the larger events. Researchers have thus far given insufficient attention to the specific influence of the Super Bowl on the sex trafficking industry.
