Exploitation can take many forms but at its basic level, it’s when someone uses another person to their advantage in order to profit from their actions. The most common form is sexual exploitation. A sex trade worker who is only given money for food, clothes or shelter is not in an equal relationship. It is a parasitic relationship where one person is gaining over the wellbeing of another.
