“Super Bowl of Sex Trafficking.”

What lies beyond the public eye on the darker side of Super Bowl weekend.

Tomorrow is one of the biggest days every year that leads to the most egregious of all crimes that can happen within our borders.  We are talking about the Super Bowl and the many hundreds and thousands of victims of the sex trafficking activities that always surround these large capacity type events.

Local and state authorities have dozens of agencies gearing up to bust criminal networks and rescue sex trafficking victims tomorrow. Minneapolis police stated they are working with 23 law enforcement agencies on activities such as monitoring local hotel for suspicious sex trafficking activities as well as online sex purchasing sites and ads.

While exact numbers of victims are impossible to determine, Nita Belles, managing director of anti-trafficking nonprofit In Our Backyard says anti-trafficking workers look for an increase in online classified ads to determine an uptick in prostitution—which often includes women and children forced into the sex trade.  Around the Super Bowl, she says, she’s seen the number of those sort of ads increase anywhere from 30 percent to 300 percent. [2]

High-profile special events, which draw large crowds, have become lucrative opportunities for child prostitution criminal enterprises,” Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division, said in a statement in 2014. “The FBI and our partners remain committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and putting those who try to profit from this type of criminal activity behind bars.” [1]

The Super Bowl “increases the amount of prostitution and human trafficking that is going to happen, more than any event we see,” Sam Hernandez said, with Elijah Rising, a non-profit devoted to ending sex trafficking and sexual exploitation through prayer, intervention and awareness. [3]

Ahead of last year’s Super Bowl, U.S. police arrested about 750 people in nationwide sex-trafficking sting operations [1] including 723 sex buyers (or “johns”) and 29 pimps or sex traffickers.

“Traffickers know. Pimps know. They bring women in,” said Sam Hernandez, [3]  ”People want to go out after whatever brought them here to be entertained. Strip clubs start advertising around things like that, conventions, mostly sporting events, and people go out drinking,” Orput said. “If statistics don’t bear it out, the facts bear it out. The victims bear it out. And that’s all I really care about.” [4]

The pre-game parties are commonly known as “SUPERB OWL” parties to avoid trademark infringement.  Some very interesting articles are available on this subject but the symbolism is not lost on those that are fighting the atrocities of child and sex trafficking. [12] Many include free “pizza”.


Arrests of pimps running underage sex rings are reported at the National Football League’s championship game almost every year, with girls being trafficking from as far away as Hawaii to hook up with clients via the Internet, hotels and strip clubs. [5]  It was so lucrative, even after it was over. “Pimps that came in for the event stayed,” Hernandez said. [3] 

“The SuperBowl just increases the concentration of people that are willing to buy sex, it doesn’t mean that sex is a “bigger” problem than unusual,” Martin said. But it is the type of “event” that increases this type of activity that matters he believes. [4]  “The same traffickers that are committing trafficking … during the SuperBowl, they’re going to wake up in the morning on Monday and do the same thing.” [5]

Some 1.5 million people in the United States are victims of trafficking, mostly for sexual exploitation. The majority are children, according to a U.S. Senate report published last year. [1]


Hernandez said Elijah Rising tracks down women and even children trapped in the sex trade the same way people find prostitutes, by going on-line. Another non-profit that is based in Washington, D.C., Airline Ambassadors International, trains those in the airline and tourism industries how to spot sex trafficking victims.   “We really want them to be aware of some of the warning signs,” said Rosalyn Parker, with Airline Ambassadors. [3]

Lifesize Dollbox Exposes Superbowl Fans to Sex Trafficking

Shared Hope International brings sex trafficking awareness campaign to Phoenix to highlight issue during SuperBowl.  Child sex trafficking affects an estimated 100,000 American children each year.

The “Children Aren’t Playthings” doll box campaign is intended to challenge the dangerous objectification of prostituted individuals, including victims of child sex trafficking. The exhibit was created by Brunner, a creative agency in Atlanta, to offer a stark reminder that despite a trafficker’s careful “packaging” of child trafficking victims for sale, they are children. [8]
