Using the Internet to advertise cyber sex
24, February, 2007 Leave a comment
In my last posting, I talked about how porn sites were infiltrating the Internet and their popping up has led to a teacher in the States getting into serious trouble.
Today, in the New Paper, an article talked about how pimps have jumped onto the cyber highway and launched their own Internet sites to advertise sex. Everything is done electronically. The potential customer gets details like hotel name, room number, etc via sms, and simply have to show up at the arranged place and time.
While this takes call girls off the street, it takes them onto the cyberways and straight into homes, and this is definitely a cause for concern. New media is indeed a double-edged sword.
