The glamorization of prostitution and traffickers hinders the social rejection of traffickers with devastating consequences regarding the vulnerability of young girls to sex traffickers (Ralph, 2009; Boyle, 2010). On the contrary, critically questioning the socially dominant discourse that glamorizes prostitution and traffickers contributes to preventing sexual exploitation (Merodio, Duque, Peña, 2020).
