Welcome to Chat Philippines, the list of Chat Hour members in Philippines.Chatters listed below are Chat Hour members who live in Philippines. Unlike many online chat rooms, chatting on Chat Hour is fun and completely free of charge.That wording seems a bit awkward, but it certainly seems to suggest that even willing cybersex is now illegal if it's done "for favor or consideration." People in the Philippines are quite reasonably worried that the language here is quite broad. It seems a bit on the harsh side: Any person found guilty of any of the punishable acts enumerated in Section 4(c)(1) of this Act shall be punished with imprisonment of prision mayor or a fine of at least Two hundred thousand pesos (Ph P200,000.00) but not exceeding One million pesos (Ph Pl,000,000.00) or both. basically cybersex is a crime in the Philippines that could net you more than six years in jail... Prision mayor appears to mean at least six years in prison. But what caught my eye, was a couple sections up from the libel part.It appears that Cybersex is now a crime in the Philippines too.
Also troubling: that section was added by one Senator, Vicente Sotto III, without any public hearing, after Sotto claimed "introducing Internet libel laws would make people more cautious online." Hello, chilling effects.In some contexts cybersex is enhanced by the use of a webcam to transmit real-time video of the partners.Channels used to initiate cybersex are not necessarily exclusively devoted to that subject, and participants in any Internet chat may suddenly receive a message with any possible variation of the text "Wanna cyber? " or a request for "C2C"/"C4C" ("cam to cam" and "cam for cam", respectively).In the section that lists out "content-related offense," number one on the list is: Cybersex. -- The willful engagement, maintenance, control, or operation, directly or indirectly, of any lascivious exhibition of sexual organs or sexual activity, with the aid of a computer system, for favor or consideration. The cybersex industry in the Philippines identified a niche willing to pay good money: pedophiles.
