Comment 9 by sanban :

Oh, but you can! Tell us the reason trafficked sex workers shouldn't be referred to as "sex slaves" and the places of sexual exploitation not be "whorehouses?"

Comment 6 by FeministWhore :Please don't call out the bad while re-inforcing the "sex slavery" frame that the religionist Rescue Industry has put on this issue. And "whorehouses"? I can't even.

I think the term "sex slaves" is a valid one, but "whorehouseses", to me implies that the women inside are whores, i.e. doing it by choice, for profit, not as the aforementioned "sex slaves", who have no choice and see none of the money that changes hands.
