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.
Fees range from US to , or roughly PHP1,000 to PHP2,000, per session or per week, the Manila Standard reported.Virtudazo added that the victims were made to believe by their parents or guardians that their sexual acts shown online were harmless as there was no physical content.Special Agent Michael Van Aelstyn of the FBI Violent Crimes Against Children Unit said most of the online sexual exploitation in the Philippines happen in cybersex dens.We use the perspective of affective labour to argue that because ICT-led development failed for these sectors, the response is an illegal service industry that also makes use of, if not feeds off, the same technological infrastructure largely supported by foreign capital.Cybersex is not the solution to achieving a decent quality of life, but the existence and persistence of this phenomenon signifies that the State’s vision of ICT for development is not living up to its promise of socioeconomic upliftment.
We also look at how the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 complements this state policy aspiration.
