Common misconceptions[ edit ] There are a number of misconceptions about sex trafficking. Sex trafficking and human trafficking are not to be confused with human smuggling.

However, trafficking for non-sexual exploitation may be even more prevalent than trafficking for sexual exploitation, though accurate estimates of trafficking rates are extremely difficult to obtain.
