Last year, Luke Hillman began meeting with a group of sex buyers. They were guys he met online.
“Looking at them in a bar, you would have no idea,” Hillman said. ”They’re just normal guys.”
The men worked for some of the region’s most prominent employers: Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon. One was a radiologist. Another was a dentist.
During their meetups in local bars, the men would discuss their “hobby” — hiring Korean prostitutes.
“I remember sitting there the first time, and I was just like … looking around, praying that nobody would see me sitting with these guys and would hear what they were saying,” Hillman said.
