Demand for child sex rising


BANGKOK: Demand for sex with children is an emerging cause of human trafficking in the Mekong region, the United Nations said as it pointed to a shift in child sex webcam centres from the Philippines to Thailand.

The problem had grown so much that demand for child webcam sex tourism is “outstripping the supply”, Deanna Davy, senior research consultant at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), said at the launch of a new trafficking report in Bangkok.
