Sexual extortion (sextortion) is a specific form of sexual abuse and exploitation that contains elements of gender-based violence and corruption. Precisely for these reasons, it can be said that it is a specific form of corrupt behavior in which the service provider uses his position of power (real or imagined) to obtain certain sexual services (of any form) from another person in exchange for the performed service.
