About this title

Synopsis:

Excerpt from Jailbait: The Story of Juvenile Delinquency

Fortunately, exploitation of children by adult procurers is not common in this country. Most sex involvements of even criminal adults with adolescents are dictated by the passions, not by profit motives. Definitely a certain squeamishness in this respect exists among the worst as among the best of us.

Occasionally an adult does turn up who has a stronger stomach than the rest of the world. About the time of the Carol affair, for example, a heavily rouged procuress of forty-seven years was ar~ raigned for soliciting in the streets for a number of schoolgirl prostitutes. But the case is not typical. Organized vice does not go in for child labor. Even the fringe enterprises leave it alone, for it simply is not profitable: the kind of man who keeps the brothel busy wants more for his money than a skinny schoolkid. And the kind of roué who wants a skinny schoolkid generally does his own promoting - as we shall see. As adolescents approach the age of consent, of course, they become more interesting as prey for organized vice; yet here it is difficult to distinguish, ex cept in a legal sense, between woman and juvenile. More impor tant as a threat to juvenile morals, probably, is a certain type of enterprise which does not sell sex as such, but uses it as a blandish ment.
