Filipina on cam cyber sex
This chapter critically examines the underside of the Philippine Information Society—the cybersex phenomenon.
We argue that the cybersex phenomenon illustrates how institutional development strategies propelled by ICT could inadvertently exclude already marginalized sectors of society.
Although the cybersex portion of the law is focused on putting a stop to the sex trafficking and forced prostitution that is part and parcel of the adult webcam industry, the language used is so broad it could also apply to consenting individuals.
It puts to question the goal of inclusive development in Philippine ICT policymaking and legislation, hinting at the risks and repercussions of creating an information society under the neoliberal market economy.
Addressing this challenge, we propose, begins with a reconsideration of cybersex as a form of ICT-facilitated affective labour and learning from the multifaceted narratives that constitute informal uses of ICTs.
The absence of studies in the cybersex phenomenon is glaring, much less in the backdrop of ICTD, and this chapter’s work in the Philippine context makes a modest contribution in filling this research gap.
Attempts to grapple with the role of technology in this so-called online version of prostitution have been undertaken through bills filed in the Philippine legislature. Aquino III administration enacted the omnibus Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, which casts cybersex as a cybercrime.
