Sex ads: Where the money is,” is a 24-page report that researches commercial-sex ads on 12 websites in the United States. The research was conducted at the request of a private non-profit foundation that fights trafficking in children and women as one of its key initiatives.

The AIM Group projected that nine of the sites will generate almost $33 million this year in ads for “body rubs,” “escort services” and similar thinly disguised prostitution services.
