Actual Children and Actual Pervs

Online Dangers
-Todays Rather Disturbing Drama-

The following post is not for children it contains themes not suitable for a younger audience*
*pretty good rating description right?

Ok So its no big shock that there are pervs online (assuming you have good parents) but me in my innocence have decided to share the rather disturbing events of earlier today.

I was video chatting on Tinychat with a few other simmers, some of my friends from the forums. Anywho there were one or two simemrs who werent on camera but that was ok, in total there was about 7 of us. Then a guest came in, and another, naturally we instanly accused them of being weirdos unless they told us their simming name, but then more guest kept comming in, some turned on their cams, just random strangers, In total their were 30 people in the chat and 12 or so on camera only 7 of 30 were simmers approx. So heaps of ranodm strangers came on, they seemed normal enough, but one as soon as their cam was on we didnt see a face, rather we saw a man who was masturbating, one of the other strangers started swearing at him, I called out for Chris Hansen and stopped broadcasting my camera, there were some as young as 12 in that chat, where all the strangers came from I cant say, but it was highly repulsive, the worst thing is its burned into my brain, make me unsee it!

I cant tell anyone irl about it (how does one even begin that conversation)

Many others no doubt experienced it but it was my first time so It was a big reminder to watch out online. Another reminder that behind that Avatar it could be anyone. I know you already know but a reminder wont hurt.

Oh and a giggle to finish off this rather serious post:

Keep Safe. Happy Simming. =)


  1. i am an adult, and i sometimes encounter this kinda thing online too, and its just sick. its not any easier to look at when your 30 than when your 13.
    the world is a sick place. you really need to be VERY very careful out there, all of you.
    especialy in chatrooms, and places like that. thats where most of them are.
    naivete has no place in the 'world wide web'. youve gotta be street smart out here, or you will get eaten alive. i learned that hard way, believe me.
    you did good. telling others is the right step. im not sure if authorities can actualy DO anything about it, but if it ever happens again you COULD try calling the cops.
    after all, exposing yourself publicly IS a crime. ESPECIALLY to a minor.

  2. Well I did all I really could at the time, I reported the camera and left. There are just so many sick people out there, it truely inflames my anger, trolls annoy me, but then these kind of people just stir up anger like no other.

  3. i agree completely. theres far too many sickos out there. something needs to be done to stop them, but what? the internet is hard to control.
    i really fear for my own children. i dont let my daughter surf the net at all

  4. That is sick. I don't use online chats but isn't there a way you can make it private so weirdos can't join? I'm sorry you had to experience that.
