How acute is the Sextortion issue?  What must we do to counter Sextortion?

Sex + Corruption = Sextortion          

The abuse of power to obtain sexual favors – specific demands by men in power of sex in return for, for example, obtaining a job, getting a passing college grade, ensuring safe passage as a migrating refugee, obtaining vital official documents.   What all the victims have in common is that they are in situations where they have few means to secure legal, or community support and recourse – making them all the more vulnerable.
