Sextortion is a form of online sexual abuse that involves coercion and extortion. It is a serious crime that can have devastating effects on victims, making them feel violated, humiliated and scared.
The pursuit of a sextortion-free world is an important goal to strive for. This requires awareness and education about the dangers of sextortion, as well as the implementation of laws and policies to protect victims from this type of sexual exploitation. We must also ensure that perpetrators are held accountable for their actions so that victims can find justice and healing.
