Pinoy cyber sex cams
This chapter examines the underside of the Philippine Information Society—the cybersex phenomenon.
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.
We also look at how the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 complements this state policy aspiration.
We argue that the cybersex phenomenon in the Philippines illustrates how institutional development strategies could inadvertently already marginalized sectors of society.
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 of, the same technological infrastructure largely supported by foreign capital.
Cybersex is a potent example of how the marginalized learn to transform conditions of exclusion and illegality into creative, practical, and thus, productive strategies of survival.
