Are there pimps who offer protection to girls in the sex industry?

No. Contrary to common perceptions, pimps often do not offer protection, and they are not benevolent managers. These images of a pimp are often romanticized and glamorized and are far from the actual reality of how pimps behave.  Instead, pimps usually take all of the money and typically establish nightly monetary quotas that women, men, and children are forced to earn in order to avoid violent repercussions. Pimps even “brand” those under their control with tattoos of their name to demonstrate ownership.
