Question and Answer

Is giving paid online/cyber sex show a crime?

Yes. According to your brief narration, you are engaged in the crime of cybersex, a violation of Section 4(C)(1) of Republic Act (RA) 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
Law states that:
“Section 4. Cybercrime Offenses.—The following acts constitute the offense of cybercrime punishable under this Act:
x x x
c) Content-related Offenses:
x x x
(1) Cybersex.—The willful engagement, maintenance, control or operation, directly or indirectly, of any lascivious exhibition of sexual organs or sexual activity, with the aid of a computer system, for favor or consideration.”
Based on words of the law, you obviously knowingly and willingly engaged in the lewd exhibition of your sexual parts using a webcam in return for the pecuniary benefit given to you by the viewers then that is equivalent to a crime under RA 10175.
It is essential to distinguish between consensual cybersex vis-à-vis cyber prostitution as the latter involves the component of favor or consideration in exchange for the lascivious exhibition of a sexual organ or activity.
