While digital technology can help adolescents promote their rights, access information and participate in society, it also comes with risks of exploitation and abuse. There is a dearth of information on how adolescents working in the adult entertainment sector (AES) use the digital technology and its impact on their well-being. This brief aims to bridge the information gap to safeguard vulnerable adolescents working in the AES from the negative impacts of technology use and help them to leverage technology for their protection.

This brief is part of a series of publications on adolescents working in adult entertainment in Nepal. Findings on the lives of adolescent girls and boys working in the sector can be found in the accompanying report; and cross-border sex work between India and Nepal is explored in this brief.
