Kitchener adult chat rooms - Teen world sex chat
Rory, 15 (but who looks 11), poses for his picture in his school blazer, white shirt and stripey tie.’ ‘T** pics’, he announces across the bottom of his profile. We only exchange messages for a few minutes when out of the blue he volunteers that he had been pleasuring himself.
A few minutes later, I get my first direct request on the chat feature from Jonathan, 14. Xxxx’Josh is equally direct but without the kisses. Emoticons — this generation’s hieroglyphics — are another way for young teens to signal to each other upfront what they want sexually.
In exactly the same way as with the adult version, they can then ‘swipe right’ if they like the look of someone, or left if they don’t.
If two people like each other, they are matched and can talk directly on a chat feature on the site, which can be linked to their Snapchat — the now-you-see-and-now-you-don’t phone app — where images and messages are shared, before automatically deleting themselves.
As the mother of a 14-year-old girl, taking her first steps into that terrifying no-man’s-land between adulthood and childhood, I spent two months monitoring the activities of youngsters on this site. Night after night, as I scrolled past thousands of fresh young faces — many still plump with baby fat and downy top lips — I found an unedifying meat market where children are reduced to little more than sexual objects, there to be scrutinised and objectified on demand. Is this what relationships will be like for children my daughter’s age?
Getting onto the site was shockingly easy — another terrifying discovery.
To sign up to the 13 to 17 section, all I had to do was make up an age — in this case that of my 14-year-old daughter Lily, who agreed to let me post a picture of her on the site in order to help me understand the pressures her generation are facing.
