WARNING WARNING READ THIS ARTICLE BEFORE YOU WHIP IT OUT ON WEBCAM AT THE REQUEST OF A PORN STAR
Imagine: it's Friday night, you've worked hard all week, and you want to spend some of your hard-earned cash on a web sesh with your favorite adult film actress. You make a connection, she appears on screen, and you're off to the races.
If the microphone on the porn star's webcam just so happens to be "broken," and she has to communicate with you via typing, and one of her requests is that you bring yourself to completion and discharge your DNA on your bare chest, just know there's an excellent chance you're chatting with a teenage male who resides in Morocco.
¡Aye Dios Mio!
Maybe you're into that sort of thing. Read on regardless.
So, imagine, you're sitting slumped down in your desk chair, reaching for the paper towel, when you receive a private message from the porn star.

SEXTORTION PREVENTION TIPS
Wear a bucket over your head with an eye-slit cut into it so you can reliably claim it's a video of an X-Men villain and not you if the video does leak
Use a stolen credit card
Moan in the voice of Mickey Mouse (again, you want to be able to say it's not you and have it be completely believable)
Demand the porn star hold up a copy of that day's newspaper. If she doesn't have one, demand the "hand jive" from Grease
Unfriend your parents on Facebook before you auto-eroticize on camera so they can't send the video to the people who'll be most disappointed
Do it in the library so the Feds will take an interest in the case if need be
Give a girl your PIN or bank routing info until you get a sense of how hot she is
Trust a girl with a name like Cookie_37ui99Xdui or Sysadminerror_Jessica until you get a sense of how hot she is
Accept Snapchat sext requests from girls you don't know until you get a sense of how hot she is
Send money to a girl you don't remember sleeping with yet claims she needs an abortion until you get a sense of how hot she is
