Thomas Poell (with Olav Velthuis) receive funding from NWO (Digitisation), 2020-2024 This project studies the spectacular rise of webcam sex platforms, such as Chaturbate, or Myfreecams. What is the impact of platformization on competition within this industry? Which risks and opportunities does webcamming create for sex workers? Are there reasons for better regulation of these platforms?
