"That’s it, take off your top…"
There is much propaganda out there about how perverts on the internet are corrupting our children.
Some of it is true.
Those who want to exploit children sexually will go online and pretend to be children themselves.
The conversation might begin innocently, and then by degrees stray into talking about sex. If a victim doesn’t want to talk about sex any more, it may be too late. The fake child will threaten to expose what they’ve already talked about. What if he sends her dad all the chat logs? Come on, all he wants are a couple of photos, maybe some video, and then he promises he’ll stop…
Authorities have a name for this process of slowly luring children into an unequal power relationship. They call it "grooming".
This is an online chat between a 16-year-old girl and an adult pretending to be a teenage boy:
