Since the start of 2023 The Children’s Society have been specifically exploring the trend of sexually coerced extortion online. This type of exploitation is where children are groomed for self-generated indecent images and once the image is received then the perpetrator makes threats as to who they will share that image with if either money or further images are not sent. The mental health impact on victims of this type of exploitation are severe. This session will explore this trend in the Newcastle context, as well as exploring other online trends and risks and noting how gendered assumptions and stereotypes may play into who is identified as a victim of this type of exploitation.
