Upskirt Voyeurs Sharing Videos and Pictures Online

admin - Monday, 1 March 2010 12:20

Upskirt voyeurs prowl MRT stations, share videos online – Equipped with small video cameras, they prowl shopping malls and lurk around MRT stations in Singapore. Their target is young women in short skirts.
When they spot the women, usually alone, they follow closely behind until they find the perfect moment to shoot upskirt snaps of the women.
The voyeurs’ audacity does not stop there. They add lasting insult to the offense by posting the videos online, boasting to all about their success in catching their victims off guard.
50 such “upskirt” videos and images were discovered on a blog site and five of these were uploaded this year and the rest in 2009.

The blog featured videos mostly said to be taken in Singapore, although several Asian adult videos were also available. The term “upskirt” is used to describe videos or pictures taken of women with cameras pointed directly up their skirts.
It is an offence in Singapore to take upskirt images or videos, but the “upskirt” videos and images appear to have been taken at places in Singapore. The women look local and the labels of the videos and images also boasted Singapore locations. Viewers were urged to “enjoy the all SG (Singapore) flavored videos”.
A typical label would read: “Upskirt at Toa Payoh escalator”, or “Young Nurse upskirt taken at Jurong East MRT Station”.

There were also videos taken at gift shops, pharmacies and supermarkets. It appears that more than one person could have been involved in filming the videos. The website had this paragraph: “Credits will be given to those who have shared the videos and indicated that they want to be credited.”

MRT Stations in Singapore Great For Upskirt Snaps

MRT Stations Great For Singaporean Upskirt Snaps


A typical video showed how the culprit first spots a victim, who might be walking or shopping. The culprit then tails the woman closely. The video would end when the culprit succeeds in capturing an image of the victim’s panty. Each video lasted from 30 seconds to more than a minute. Most of the women looked to be in their late teens or 20s.

While most victims were alone, some culprits were brazen enough to target those who were with boyfriends or husbands. Most of the women captured were wearing short skirts.
Though the “upskirt” videos were removed from the website, many links to other videos remain. There is also an advertisement selling a CD of the images and videos taken from the blog.
For $12.90, buyers are promised all their “favorite old and updated lustful videos and never-published videos”. They are also told that the CD is available only in Singapore.

Many netizens and women were disgusted.
Student Koh Jia Tian, 22, said she would be “so angry” that she would “slap anyone who takes an upskirt video” of her.
“Such acts are perverted, and an invasion of my privacy. To prevent myself from becoming a victim, I will hold down my skirt at all times from now onwards and try not to stand at the sides of escalators and staircases,” she said.
Masters student Cheryl Ong, 24, said: “I would be very angry with a person who tries to take an upskirt video of me. Such a person needs to be sent for counseling.”
Ms Ong added that she would immediately report the culprit to the police, so that “the authorities can help him with his terrible tendencies”.

Psychologist Vanessa von Auer, who is the clinic director at VA Psychology Centre, told The New Paper that upskirting is a form of voyeurism, which is defined as a repetitive behavior pattern that consists of watching unsuspecting people in a sexual manner to achieve sexual excitement.
“Such behaviour is an invasion of privacy and can be considered a deviant form of sexuality,” Ms von Auer noted.
She said one of her patients, a 17-year old girl, was the victim of an upskirt video. “She told me she thought she had made it easy for the culprit to upskirt her because she was wearing a short skirt,” she added.
But “wearing a skirt does not extend an invitation to a peeping Tom, nor does it excuse such deviant behaviors,” Ms von Auer pointed out.

The website is a disturbing indication that such voyeurism is now being shared and encouraged online. Criminal lawyer Amerjeet Singh said he has handled upskirting cases in which people were caught with the footage in their phones or cameras.
“Now, I see more cases where the content is found in computers, because it’s so easy for one to download and post the content onto websites such as blogs these days,” he added.
FILMING an “upskirt” video or taking an “upskirt” image can be seen as insulting the modesty of a woman or intruding upon her privacy.

The culprit can be jailed for up to one year or fined, or both in Singapore. The number of such offenses has remained more or less unchanged over the last three years. It fell slightly from 365 in 2007 to 354 last year.

These cases include upskirt picture-taking, filming, and flashing.

A police spokesman said: “The police would like to remind the public to be alert to their surroundings and be wary of strangers who approach you at crowded areas.”

    It is awful to take such photos or make video.And it doesn’t matter if victims were alone or were with boyfriends or husbands. Most of the women captured were wearing short skirts. It is dagerous to wear short skirt, isn’t it?

    Only if the person is fat, wearing dirty panties, or heavens above – if they are wearing no panties at all. If the person was wearing a bikini, no one would pay much attention, and yet more is on show than an upskirt. When all is said and done, a bikini bottom is a panty only the name is different. I think anyone wearing a short skirt should imagine they are wearing a bikini and stop making a fuss over anyone who wants to take upskirt pictures and instead be flattered that someone is interested in their pantied ass..
