When Jovay from the Philippines was ten years old, one of her aunts recruited her for webcam sex. She was brought to a neighbour who forced her to webcam sex. The little girl had to perform dreadful acts in front of the camera. Jovay could be freed thanks to her grandmother, who took care of Jovay and her brothers and sisters after the loss of their parents. Jovay is a textbook example of a vulnerable girl that was recruited for webcam sex.
Child sexual abuse is increasing in Asia. Through the internet and on site, in which case child sex tourists are the perpetrators. Both kinds of abuse are integrally connected. Online sex tourists can easily establish contact with children and gain their trust (‘grooming’) before visiting them at their destination. And vice versa: after their holidays, tourists can continue to abuse children online via live streaming and develop and view child pornography.
