About

In this session, we take a closer look at transactional sexting, a phenomenon that is on the rise thanks to the development of platforms such as OnlyFans. In an online world with an increasing sexualisation and self-validation through likes, adult influencers are giving young people the idea to copy their business model. The major social media players allow this 'grey zone' to develop further and hide behind 'not in violation of the conditions'. But if your algorithms start to promote sexual exploitation on platforms that are supposed to be child friendly, something is wrong.

This webinar is designed for the Safer Internet Centres. We recommend this webinar to hotlines, helplines and educational systems.
