You probably don’t think it’s weird for people to share videos that show people engaging in sexual acts, but in the case of a lot of these fake incest sites, that’s exactly what they’re doing.
It’s a tactic that some sites have used to try to attract users who may be attracted to people engaging with sex acts, and others have tried to use it as a way to get users to share content that they don’t necessarily think is real.
But what does it actually do to people?
What do they get out of sharing videos of people engaging and masturbating?
What can we learn from them?
And how can we use them to prevent fake incest from becoming a real problem?
