Rising trend in live-streaming sex content among youth

Colombo, June 18 (Daily Mirror) - In a startling revelation, Sri Lanka's law enforcement agencies have reported a surge in incidents regarding live-streaming sexual content involving youth, who are allegedly selling these explicit clips to international companies.

According to recent disclosures by the police, these illicit activities have seen a notable increase due to their lucrative nature.

The Police disclosed that a significant number of complaints have been filed, primarily concerning young couples aged between 20 and 30 years.

These individuals are reportedly engaging in live sex streaming sessions, which are then recorded and sold to various companies abroad for substantial profits. It is reported that some of these clips have found their way onto prominent pornography websites.

Authorities have intensified their efforts to curb this alarming trend and have already made several arrests in connection with these incidents.

In a similar incident, the Piliyandala Police have uncovered a large-scale racket involving the sale of live-streaming sex videos to a suspected Chinese company.

Acting on information received, Piliyandala Police arrested two couples residing in a rented house in the Batakettara area of Piliyandala in connection with the incident.

During questioning, it was revealed that the couples had moved into the house last March after residing in the Kollupitiya area.

Another couple was also present at the time of the police raid, and investigations have revealed their direct involvement in the racket.

Investigations further revealed that the company had allegedly paid an amount ranging from Rs. 50,000 to 100,000 per video, depending on the quality and the performance.

The suspects, aged 22, 23, 26 and 27, were remanded after being produced before the Kesbewa Magistrate’s Court.

Meanwhile, Police said that there is a rise in incidents involving women engaging in prostitution under the guise of spa services. Investigations have revealed that these women are earning significant revenue through these activities.

Police said they are conducting raids on brothels operating as spas, aiming to curb this illicit trade.

In addition, police have identified numerous websites promoting these illegal services. According to sources, the live-streaming package starts from Rs 2,500 and goes up to Rs 30,000. Further, the websites provide information to arrange physical meet-ups for sex and its package starts from Rs 10,000.

These revelations follow complaints from individuals who were defrauded by advertisements on certain websites. The complainants alleged that the posts promoted prostitution and live cam videos.

They further claimed that despite the relevant payment made via eZ Cash or online banking, the service is not delivered as promised.

As such, police warned the public not to fall prey to these scams and cautioned that legal action will be taken against those involved. However, they acknowledge the difficulties in taking action as most of these incidents are individually operated.
