Halos 80% ng mga biktima ng cybersex sa Pilipinas ay mga menor de edad, ayon sa Philippine National Police at ng Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sa US.

Ang mga Pilipinong biktima ay nahulog sa mga sekswal na mandaragit mula sa buong mundo dahil ang miyembro ng kanilang pamilya mismo ay inanyayahan sila sa cybersex trade bilang isang paraan ng pagtulong sa mga mahihirap na pamilya na kumita ng pera. Ang Kita ay mula sa US$20 hanggang $50, o halos PHP1,000 hanggang PHP2,000, bawat sesyon o bawat linggo, iniulat ng Manila Standard.

Ayon sa International Justice Mission-Philippines, 80% ng mga biktima ay mga menor de edad, kalahati nito ay 12 taong gulang o mas bata pa. Sinabi ni Chief Inspector Michael Virtudazo, pinuno ng pangkat ng Internet Crimes Against Children Unit ng PNP Women and Children Center, na mayroong 80 na naitala na kaso sa 287 biktima ng trafficking, habang 113 ang naaresto.

“Ang OSEC (online na sekswal na pagsasamantala sa mga bata) ay laganap sa Pilipinas dahil sa nagkaka-access sila sa internet. Ang mga miyembro ng pamilya ay tumatayo bilang facilitator, may matatas na Ingles at access sa sentro ng remittance, “sabi ni Virtudazo. Idinagdag pa ni Virtudazo na ang mga biktima ay pinaniniwalaan ng kanilang mga magulang o tagapag-alaga na ang kanilang mga sekswal na kilos na ipinakita sa online ay hindi makasasama dahil walang pisikal na kontak.

Ang Special Agent na si Michael Van Aelstyn ng FBI Violent Crimes Against Children Unit ay nagsabi na ang karamihan sa mga online na sekswal na pagsasamantala sa Pilipinas ay nangyayari sa cybersex dens. Inililista ng FBI ang Timog Silangang Asya, Timog Amerika at Aprika bilang mga “hot spot” ng child sex tourism batay sa data mula 2014 hanggang 2016.

Noong Abril 2016, ang FBI kasama ang pulisya ng Pilipinas ay nagsagawa ng operasyon sa Pampanga, kung saan ang mga menor de edad na may edad na 4-8 ay naligtas. Ang den sa Pampanga ay nag-aalok sa mga bata na mag-pose ng hubad at magsagawa ng online sex.

Sa nakalipas na dalawang buwan, pinaslang ng mga awtoridad ang operasyon ng cybersex sa Taguig, Butuan, Iligan at Cebu, kung saan maraming mga suspek ang naaresto at naligtas ang mga menor de edad.
