Outside of the Pino Suarez metro station in Mexico City's Historic Center, Karla Jacinto, a self-confessed tomboy, was waiting one day for some friends to go skateboarding when an older boy approached her and asked her to go for an ice cream. There's nothing wrong if we have an ice cream," Jacinto recalled recently in a downtown coffee shop, a scant thirty minute walk from where she met her future pimp. Growing up in poverty in Mexico City, Karla suffered both sexual and physical abuse from the age of five. The day she accepted that invitation, it seemed like she'd met someone who understood her. The young man, who Jacinto still refrains from naming, immediately invited her to go to the state of Puebla, east of the capital, but she insisted her parents wouldn't let her. They exchanged phone numbers, and eventually he convinced her to go to Puebla the following week.
