Editors - January 9th, 2006: The world of easy access of the
internet shows its dark side as teenagers are starting to use broadband connections
and easy-to-use web cams to inadvertently and sometimes even unknowingly show
their image to a public of over 1.500 people, while they take showers, perform
masturbation or even have sex in front of the cameras.
Young internet porn stars are becoming popular, as kids make easy money while
their parents are nearby their closed doors. Using simple technologies such
as web cams, chat rooms and online payment systems, they are falling into the
trap of making money with barely any effort, despite the effort in masturbating
anonymously in front of the computer. There are already web sites offering access
to 140.000 images of adolescents showing themselves while masturbating and stripping
unaware of what happens with their image. For the kids, it's a dangerous world
that may lead even to prostitution or unwanted sexual practices in exchange
for money proposals.
