Pickton sex drive is what initiated this story. Secondly, he did not have sexual encounter with one woman, but with many of them. This indicates the increase of sex drive and proves that Pickton actions were based on the drive theory since the theory states that drive tends to increase over a period of time. Another way of examining this case using drive theory is the drive Pickton had to kill them. Since most of the women’s were prostitutes and drug addicts and because of such personality, their status is tarnished among the society and this may have been Pickton attempt to eliminate them.

The gangs promise the girl for the best job offer one can obtain, but force the teenagers and women into sex if they want to be alive. China is fully aware of this ongoing issue and has taken initiative to crack down and stop illegal human trafficking.
