Terre des Hommes Netherlands raises the alarm about a largely unknown, but quickly spreading new form of child exploitation that has got tens of thousands victims involved in the Philippines alone: webcam child sex tourism. In less than two and a half months Terre des Hommes researchers were able to identify over 1,000 adults who were willing to pay children in developing countries to perform sexual acts in front of the webcam. With the help of a virtual 10 year old Philippine girl the researchers identified adults from more than 65 countries. The video footage of the child predators has been handed over to the police authorities today.

Dette er i virkeligheden en kamp mod fattigdom. Efterspørgslen vil altid være der men hvis ikke at pigerne ville være nødt til at gøre det for at få penge så de kan få mad i maven så tror jeg at problemet ville være meget mindre.

Hvad er det for en mekanisme der gør at nogle voksne tænder sexuelt på børn? Er der en stigning i pædofili eller er der kommet mere fokus på det?. Er der sket et skred i vores seksualitet generelt. F.eks. rt den almindelige "mode" for kønsbehåring blandt befolkningen er jo "barne looket", hvilket jeg personligt syntes er pænt fucked up. Modeller for tøj til kvinder i vores kultur er underudviklede småpiger. Jeg kan forstå at i Sverige rekruterer bureauerne direkte fra anoreksi-klinikker. I den allestedsværende pornografi skal modellerne gerne ligne småpiger og eller barbie dukker. Kan der være en sammenhæng?

Uanset hvad. hvad kan vi som individder stille op Earthling?

Serenity,
Yeah, poverty is definitely part of it. So is corruption of the side of law-enforcers. Still, that doesn´t explain or justify the lengths some men will go to satisfy their needs and perversions. Maybe a constructive solution would be to strip these men of their assets as part of their sentencing when they´re caught, and plough their money into authorized and trusworhy projects helping and educating these CHILDREN. This "Sweetie" project caught a lot of men (more than 20,000 separate users over the course of 10 weeks) whose details are now with Interpol. If the idea is widely adopted, many more could be caught.

Rovdyr,
There is definitely more focus on pedofilia. There is also a greater openess in addressing the problem, and a lot more knowledge available regarding same, information which wasn´t there 30 years ago.

One of the characteristics of the child predator is that they are really good at hiding their identity. Another factor is the existence of rings where the pedofiles (often in powerful positions across a broad spectrum of society) protect each other.

I think the present culture of rampant pornography and the sexualization of children has a role to play. I remember coming across an article some time ago (no link now) which spoke about married men who engaged in pornography, and "progressed" from mainstream porn to child pornography, and these men were fathers... There is an addictive element to pornography, and like every drug, the stakes for providng the "thrills" get progressively higher... Or lower...

I think we can all educate ourselves, and we can educate our children. When appropriate, I try and help children to have a wholesome sense of their dignity regarding their bodies and their sexuality. I also educate them about saying "no" to inappropriate behaviour, and reporting it immediately to an adult if they experience any form of invasive behaviour or abuse.

We can all protest about the sexualization of children, unrestricted pornography, etc. by speaking out, using the media, campaigning, etc. We can report cases of abuse if we learn about them. We can fund and support organizations directly engaged in fighting this exploitation and abuse. The important thing is to speak up and do something, rather than nothing.

It is also important to help pedophiles before they abuse children. I am sure that it must be quite horrible to be one and I think, it is important to understand that it is a mental disorder. There is also a need for more research into the matter. As I understand it a lot pedophiles have themselves been abused as children and as Sererinty wrote, we must fight poverty and inequality all around the world.

I completely agree. Still as things stand, it would take a very brave person to admit that he had sexual feelings towards children. There is a lot of hysteria around the word, pedophelia. Such people are often social outcasts.

I remember reading material some time ago about the necessity of allowing people sexually attracted to children to have a safe place to talk about their thoughts and feelings, recognizing that there is a distinction to be made between thoughts, feelings and actions. Having a safe place to off-load thoughts and feelings can stop people from acting out. It could also help them find constructive and healthy ways to deal with their thoughts and feelings, eg. recognizing and avoiding triggers, channeling their sexual energy in healthy ways, etc. I see a parallel with people who talk about their alcoholic thirst, suicidal feelings, etc.

That said, I think the nature of pedophelia should not be under-estimated.

Pedophiles are PREDATORS and masters of disguise. It´s one of the reasons they are so hard to recognize. And pedophelia cannot be cured, as yet. It seems there are some treatments (including chemical castration), but their success rate is low.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedophilia

Note too, that there are moves in some countries to have pedophelia legalized. In Holland, a political party was established a few years ago with the same aim... These activists talk about sexual mentoring, and about "loving" and consentual relationships. They ignore the imbalance of power, the lack of liberty with regard to consent and the emotional immaturity within child-adult sexual relationships, to say nothing of the huge scope for exploitation and abuse. As I remember, dominance and power can also lie at the heart of pedophelia, perhaps more so than sexual appetite.

I also understand that sex offenders have often been abused as children, although I´m not sure of the percentages. I know of such cases. A such, it´s a vicious circle... It´s very easy to ignore this aspect and simply demonize pedophiles and their sometimes terrible crimes. For me, this underlines the need to see the pedophile in his/her full context, and to help victims (children, teenagers, adults) of sexual abuse to find their voices, thereby breaking the circle, and removing the possibility of victims becoming offenders and creating more victims.

And surely, there needs to be a lot more research into the matter, as well as vigilence. I would also agree that fighting poverty and inequality is part of the battle with regard to the abuse and exploitation of children.

Nogle af dem er, men der er vist også en del mennesker, som har haft en helt normal barndom, som af en eller anden grund bare tænder på små børn. Og der er også en del, som ikke er rigtigt pædofile, men som tænder på mennesker i stort set alle aldre.

Pedophiles are PREDATORS
Hvad med de fædre som tænder på børn, men aldrig har misbrugt nogen, og aldrig kunne finde på at gøre det? De fortjener vel ikke at blive kaldt "predators" ???

True. If you read the wiki-link, you will see how they differentiate and include several definitions. And yes, there is a distinction to be made between thoughts, feelings and actions. Re-read my comment ;)

Predators are the ones who "read" and pick their victims, lie in wait, groom them, build up trust and/or fear.. and then pounce. The name speaks for itself.

Hvor almindeligt er det? Jeg bryder mig ikke om formuleringen men realiteten er jo at du kan godt fodre en løve med kål, men det bliver den ikke vegetar af.

Svært at vide da de fleste nok ikke fortæller det til nogen, men de eksisterer, og de fortjener ikke at blive sat i bås med dem, som forgriber sig på børn.

Just to re-focus, have any of you guys actually watched the video (8.mins) and signed the petition?

It highlights the fact that children are being forced to participate in chat rooms on the internet where they have to sit for (10-12) hours listening to obsence talk from men who unstrip and play with themselves. They children sometimes have to strip and play with their genitals for these (mostly) men - the great majority of whom come from the States and the UK. It is sexual abuse of the lowest order, even if thousands of kilometres separate the victims and the offenders, and causes untold damage to these children. It is a growing phenomen on the internet as it is uncontrolled and easy to hide. The organisation posting the video are working for restrictions on the internet and the bringing to justice of the guilty.

Please look and the video, sign the petition and share the link, if you haven´t already done so. Thanks!
