Digital Sex work in the Age of Covid
18 September 2020 / 15:00 - 16:00
Digitization is transforming the global sex industry. With their low barrier of entry, live and highly interactive character, webcam sex platforms such as Chaturbate or LiveJasmin have become one of the sex industry’s most profitable and fastest-growing segments. This development has been further propelled by Corona, which forced many sex workers to look for alternative sources of income online. But what does their work entail? Which new risks and opportunities do they encounter, compared to offline sex work? Does ‘camming’ lead to a new global proletariat of sex workers? Or can it provide new forms of empowerment?
