Indeed, webcams are at the forefront of a concept called compliant victimization: young people are seduced by online predators and convinced that exposing themselves online is OK and normal, said Rosalind Prober, president of the non-governmental organization Beyond Borders. "Young people often argue with you that what they're doing is what they want to do and the person on the Internet is really their boyfriend, they weren't sexually exploited and they wanted to raise their shirts and show their breasts over the Internet," Prober said. "It takes a lot of debriefing and deprogramming to get those children to view themselves as victims, which they truly are, a compliant victim."
