Famous influencers receive daily offers of money in exchange for sex, some of them told the Victoria Derbyshire program, by BBC. According to one, social networks have become “a catalog” for men to select their next “achievement”.

“It is luxury prostitution - it's scary to think that, if they send me messages, probably they did so with thousands of other girls on Instagram”, says Tyne-Lexy Clarson.

She said she had only 19 when it received the first such proposal: a stranger offered 20 grand (R$ 110 one thousand) for her to dine with him.

The content of the offers only worsened after she took part in the second season of the reality show Love Island. By email, an agency offered her 50 grand (R$ 274 one thousand) for five nights in Dubai - the proposal contained a confidentiality agreement ensuring that the details of the demands made on it during the trip remain secret.

Tyne-Lexy account that refused, but fears that influential less successful may feel pressured to “keep up appearances” and become vulnerable to this type of transaction.

“It's a lot of money for some people, amounts that can change someone's life.”

'Important Transaction’
Rosie Williams, who participated in the third season of Love Island, He says he received an offer of 100 grand (R$ 548 one thousand) per annum, as well as clothing and luxury handbags, to be companion of a man in Dubai.

the program, she showed one of the recent posts, a man claiming to be in Dubai. Not text, he claimed that contact could surprise her, but I had a “important transaction” I would like to share with Rosie - a language, she said, widely used in this type of communication.

The influential says he never was tempted by offers type, even with the large amount of money.

para Red, this is a side not provided Fame. “You hear alerts about critical, about the fact that your life will change dramatically, but no one ever tells you that you can be bought for a man.”

According to her, nobody talks about this subject in the world of influencers. “Or are you in a position that does not need it, then does not discuss the issue, or you accepted one of these offers and ashamed to say.”

"Degraded and abused’
Production of the Victoria Derbyshire program saw several messages received by influential. The approaches vary, men suggesting sex directly to intermediaries representing a rich client.

Evidence submitted by an anonymous source, who identified himself as a reality TV star, show that it received an offer from 10 grand (R$ 55 one thousand) by sex, during a holiday trip.

“Isabel” He says it was contacted on Instagram by a man ten years older than her years, after appearing on a talent show on British TV.

“First, he offered me luxury brand bags. He had a fetish for being financially dominant, so I was excited to spend hundreds of pounds on products for me”, Explain. “I was also struggling to keep my followers engaged. I think that's why I accepted the offer.”

“He was very nice when I was there. At dinner, We started drinking and he asked about my finances - I told you had a debt 5 grand (R$ 27 one thousand). He said: 'Trance with me and I'll give you twice that. "”

“Isabel” He says he accepted the offer. “I was very disappointed with myself, I felt degraded, raped.”

she insists, however, this is not a form of prostitution. “It is targeted against a specific goal, that progresses with time… While in the case of prostitution you combine an amount to a stranger.”

Exploration
The feminist group Object (word that, in English, It can mean either “object” as “oppose something”), that combating the sexual objectification of women, He says he understands why influencing accept offers “highly tempting”.

Heather Brunskell-Evans, member of the Object, says “women who are involved with it will not want to talk about prostitution. The reality is that they are selling their bodies for money”.

“These men are offering them everything they need to succeed as influencers, but, after all, this is exploitation. And these women will have to do things for money with which they do not want to be associated, the longer embarrassed.”

The celebrity agent Rob Cooper states that the offers are not restricted to women. He cites the case of a man who got money from proposals in exchange for regular sex.

“I would say influencers known or reality TV stars receive messages so daily.”

According to him, social networks should require the identity of the people who create accounts on their platforms - such as passport or identity number.

A spokesman for Facebook said “sexual solicitation is not tolerated by Instagram, and those who violate our rules will be banned repeatedly. We want Instagram is a safe space for people to express themselves. We invested heavily in tools and technologies to prevent harassment on the platform”.
