New online campaign launched to prevent sextortion among teenaged boys

- by Allison Dunfield

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) has seen an 89 per cent increase over the past two years in online sextortion cases among teenage boys, prompting the centre to develop Canada’s an awareness and prevention campaign for boys.

The new campaign uses humour to connect with boys and deliver the serious message of “don’t get sextorted.” The new www.dontgetsextorted.ca website offers resources for teens, educators and parents to facilitate open conversations about the issue and a link to confidential online help.

It also features a video: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHYubxZlTe0.
