Misleid | Plotseling van je van hem
Caught in the web of a pimp
As soon as you are caught in the web of a pimp, you cannot see a way out. You think you are on your own and you are afraid.
Of course, not every pimp works the same way. But there are many similarities. They pamper you, make you feel good and then start to threaten you. They scare you so that they have power over you.
The media show a certain lack of understanding for the victims. “You cannot just be put away in the red light district!” is something I have often heard. If only they knew what fear and embarrassment could do to someone. I have to live with those scars.
