The cybersex industry is a booming one in the Philippines. It employs underage girls called the ‘cybersex chat girls’ and exploits them to the hilt. The girls are lured into the trade and have to sit in front of webcams to satisfy the desires of the men who want them to chat on phone, go nude on demand and perform various antics with their bodies.
The girls in the Philippines are familiar with the English language and that is an advantage for them. A section of the people does not see anything wrong because they feel that the girls are engaged in the outsourcing industry and are proud that they are earning at such an early age.
These cybersex cells or dens operate in Olongapo from populated localities and even the neighbors are never aware of what goes on behind the closed doors. Moreover, the computer servers are from outside Philippines and at times proxy servers – hence extremely difficult to trace.
