MANILA, Philippines—Two cybersex workers and their alleged manager were arrested Wednesday in Caloocan City and police said they could be charged for violating the new anti-cybercrime law.

Mark Joseph Borja, 24, Railene Querto, 29, were found naked and performing sexual acts in front of a webcam for a foreign client when police swooped down on a house along Libis Espina Street in Caloocan City around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, case investigator Police Officer 2 Archie Isidro said.

Jinky Isla, 26, owner of the house, was also arrested on suspicion of running the “small-time” internet sex business, Isidro said.

Authorities caught Borja and Querto while their sexual tryst was being broadcast live via a webcam porn site, he said.

“They were naked and were using sex toys when we entered,” Isidro said.

The cybersex den was operating daily from 11 p.m.  until 4 a.m., he said, adding that it appeared to be a “small-time business” since only one computer unit was found during the raid.

The three were being held  at the Caloocan police office and would undergo inquest proceedings for possible violation of the newly-passed Republic Act 10175 or the anti-cybercrime law.

    small time lang lagi kaya ng mga pulis sa atin kasi alam nila di makakapalag at walang malakas na backer pero pag big fish na wala na takot na silang galawin.

    I can’t understand what’s wrong with cybersex. Lol Ano ba ang napipinsala sa Bansa ? The foreigner came here because of beautiful babes in the Philippines. And it help in More Fun In the Philippines. In tourismo

    I wonder if the police even had a warrant. Seems like a lot of police resources have been wasted just to arrest a couple having intercourse in front of a pc – which the reporter called a “cybersex den.” Might as well call Congress a brothel, much more believable.

    why is it a crime?
    and sex on phone is not?

    Our country is overprotective of its citizens. I think this is already going too far on a personal level. If those sex workers were recruited as slaves, then probably it would be considered a crime. But if those people willingly wanted to be sex workers, leave them be.

      Actually yung pagiging overprotective ang nagiging source ng corruption eh, tulad na lang halimbawa yung mga immigration officers sa NAIA, kunyari daw pinoprotektahan ang ating mga prospective OFW’s kaya naghihigpit sila pero ang tutoo puting envelop lang na may lamang 20 or 25K pesos ayos na, kahit saang lupalop ka pa ng mundo magpunta pwede.
