“Girls…report being under increasing pressure to display themselves in their bra and knickers…whereas boys …display their bodies in a hyper-masculine way…”
there is a “popular perception that young people (particularly girls) are increasingly being pressured into appearing sexually available”
“The emergence of ‘social sites’ is having an effect on online offending patterns... Websites which incorporate personal profiles, social networking, instant messaging, games and photo sharing into the same online space … mean that information gathering on a child and grooming can take place in one online environment”. CEOP 2009
“Amongst children, mobile phone ownership increases dramatically with age, from a quarter of 5-6 year olds (26%), to half of 7-8 year olds, and three quarters of those aged 9-10 (77%). At the start of secondary school, nine in ten children have a mobile phone (92% of 11-12s), rising to almost all (96%) 15-16 year olds” (CHILDWISE Monitor 2009-10).
The sexual exploitation of children and young people under 18 involves exploitative situations, contexts and relationships where young people (or a third person or persons) receive ‘something' (e.g. food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) as a result of performing, and/or others performing on them, sexual activities….
….Child sexual exploitation can occur through use of technology without the child's immediate recognition, for example the persuasion to post sexual images on the internet/mobile phones with no immediate payment or gain. In all cases those exploiting the child/young person have power over them by virtue of their age, gender, intellect, physical strength and/or economic or other resources.
