Cybersex, according to reports, has become a growing industry in many parts of the world, including in the Philippines, where there is a perception that there is a low risk of arrest of violators despite the existence of laws like Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009; and Republic Act 9208 or the Human Trafficking Act.
CYBERSEX AND THE LAW Oxford Dictionaries defines cybersex as “sexual arousal using computer technology, especially by wearing virtual reality equipment or by exchanging messages with another person via the Internet.” Philippine laws, meanwhile define cybersex as “the willful engagement, maintenance, control, or operation, directly or indirectly, of any lascivious exhibition of sexual organs or sexual activity, with the aid of a computer system, for favor or monetary consideration.” A person found guilty of engaging in cybersex faces up to six months in jail and a fine of not less than P200,000 but not to exceed P1 million, or both imprisonment and fine, upon the discretion of the court.
