Chinese Researcher Warns of a New Threat to Public Health - Naked Internet Chatting
From TheBostonChannel: Don't Chat Online Naked, Researcher Warns
"A Chinese researcher has warned of a new threat to public health and morality -- naked Internet chatting. Up to 20,000 Chinese log on to chatrooms each night in which users in various states of undress talk to each other with the help of Web cams, the Shanghai Daily newspaper said Tuesday."
""At first, we thought if was merely a game for a few mentally abnormal people," the paper quoted China Youth Association researcher Liu Gang as saying. "But as our research continued, we found the problem was much larger than expected."
Participants download chat software and attach video cameras to their computers. They then "talk with others while exposing themselves and performing provocative poses," the paper said.""
