BACKGROUND
  • Increasing accessibility and use of Internet

    • reporting regular internet use in Internet Cafes.
  • In depth interviews and focus groups
  • Here we focus on sexual activity that takes place inside an Internet Cafe (Cabina Privada de Internet)‏
findings
FINDINGS
  • The Internet Cafe infrastructure is set up to facilitate certain kinds of sexual activity
  • Male teenagers do engage in sexual activity with peers in Internet Cafes
  • Risky sexual practices are diverse, from non- protected oral sex to non- protected anal sex
  • These kind of practices are seen as part of a process for sexual learning and developing their masculinity
  • Sex partners are essentially casual
  • Most of the times, there is no condom use
conclusions
CONCLUSIONS
  • Internet is a powerful technology tool to expand entertainment practices, including Cybersex
  • Internet use also allows users to seek, find and practice new ways of sexual interaction
  • Sexual Health Programs should use the Internet to inform young people
  • It is important to work with internet cafes owners
  • More studies should be conducted to further understand such practices and promote public policies regarding Internet use for sexual purposes among teenagers and young people that respect their sexual rights and autonomy.
