Streaming of child sexual abuse: forcing a child to perform or be involved in sexual activity with themselves or with others, directly broadcast or published through the internet and watched by the people who ordered such a scene. Perpetrators or facilitators are generally family members or other persons close to the victim (neighbors, teachers) who make a deal about the time, date, and price for such disgusting displays.
