Check out a half an hour podcast from Crossing Continents on BBC. An average girl in Romania makes $5000 per month. This is her story.
Inside Romania’s live, web-camming world – the engine of the online sex industry… Crossing Continents explores the fastest growing sector of so-called, ‘adult’ entertainment. Locally, it’s known as ‘video-chat’. And in Romania there are thousands of women logging on, and in ‘private’ one-to-one sessions undressing (and more) for the international clients who pay to watch them. It is not sex work in the traditional sense – the relationships are virtual, there is no meeting or touching. Linda Pressly meets the women employed in studios and from home, and others with experience of this burgeoning industry.
