Transcription: 
A pimp will motivate a growth through the middle class value of deferred gratification. We all know that if we work hard it will pay off, so the harder she works at being a prostitute the sooner he can accumulate enough money in order to develop business, buy a home, they can get married and she can have his baby. The pimp is looking for girls who don't have access to the kinds of guys that would be able to fulfill that dream. As little girls we're all taught that what we want to do is grow up, get married and have a baby. These little girls want nothing different than what the rest of us want.
