The UN children’s agency said in a 2016 report poor families in the Philippines were pushing their children into performing live sex online for paedophiles around the globe, calling it a form of “child slavery”.New research conducted by Anti-Slavery Australia has for the first time brought together data, statistics and expert commentary to paint an alarming picture of online child exploitation.
In 2015, a South Australian man was found to be the head administrator of a global network with an estimated 45,000 members.
A year later, a young Victorian man was described as one of the biggest child pornography and “hurtcore” distributors in the world, with his websites attracting 3 million hits in three years.
In some contexts cybersex is enhanced by the use of a webcam to transmit real-time video of the partners.
Channels used to initiate cybersex are not necessarily exclusively devoted to that subject, and participants in any Internet chat may suddenly receive a message with any possible variation of the text "Wanna cyber? " or a request for "C2C"/"C4C" ("cam to cam" and "cam for cam", respectively).
These counts are updated daily once they become available.
