I think it's also because in those situations it's easier to be passive and give the predator whatever it is they want from you. Since most times they could get violent if you don't do as they say. But then after a long time the victim could be dependent on them.
@PBandJ_Nerd In the legitimate pathological cases, it's just a type of trauma coping mechanism.Much in the same vein as denial or self-blame that victims of abuse commonly experience.The mind of the victim protects itself by normalizing the traumatic experiences or even interprets them as something desirable.
Wait, wait, wait...Are you saying the kids get off to being abused? Like you rescue them from brothels and they go, "no, no, take me back! Those guys loved me!"
@Bananaman177 You misunderstand. Brothel conditioning exploits the human mind's innate release of the neurological pleasuring pharmacology of Dopamine, Serotonin (the bonding hormone) and Oxytocin... ALL of which are addictive and have no natural neutralizer except time. To put it in a sensation you'd understand, think of the profound lingering emotional neurological withdrawal 'crash' you feel in a serious romantic break-up. Intuitively you WANT that 'fix' and will do most anything to get back to those hormones. THAT, is the impetus for 'rebound' hook-ups. For the kids, the longer they're conditioned, the greater their addiction transferring to sexual release with brothel customers. It becomes a 'lifestyle'. Rescued prostitutes refer to it as 'leaving the life'~
