Intended to replace the term child prostitution, which implied a level of consent, CSE is a form of child sexual abuse in which children are offered something—money, drugs, alcohol, food, a place to stay, or even just affection—in exchange for sexual activity.
According to the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee in 2013, the first contact might be made by other children, who hand the target over to an older man.

The abuse can involve being gang raped by dozens of men during one event.
