Ladies spil youthfull spil 13 are flocking to use a teenage dating webstek which permits them to be targeted with vile sexual messages from older boys.
MyLOL.com, described by worried NSPCC officials spil a “playground for paedophiles”, is one of a number of sites rapidly overtaking social networking favourites like Facebook.
Its very existence is unknown to many parents. But it is the most &bashful,popular dating webpagina for under-18s ter the UK and is visited by more than 300,000 users a month.
Shockingly, many users are adults attempting to voeling naive youngsters, a Sunday People investigation found.
The webpagina permits anyone aged 13 to 25 to register, give out voeling details and postbode provocative pictures of themselves.
But there is nothing to zekering perverts using false ages to join.
Some users openly say they are studs looking to meet under-age ladies.
And unlike sites like Facebook, the “profile” details of members are &timid,automatically visible.
Our reporter posed spil a 13-year-old doll to sign up to the webpagina using the name Polly2.
Within &timid,minutes she wasgoed bombarded with private messages from six masculines. Three of thesis were grown studs.
One user called Jamie69 claimed on his profile that he wasgoed a 14-year-old boy from South Hayling, Hants.
Disturbingly, he clearly had more ter mind than a friendly talk.
He &timid,wasted no time asking if the conversation could be moved to a Skype movie call – so they could do “naughty” things.
Our shocked reporter, still playing up hier role spil an virginal tiener, replied that she had never done &timid,anything like that before.
The encounter took an even darker turn when he suggested: “I’ll go first”.
She then asked if he knew she wasgoed 13 and, chillingly, he said he did.
A quick Google search with the details Jamie69 had provided for Skype confirmed what our dame feared – he wasgoed actually a man te his 40s from America.
Next to message wasgoed Shzkhan01, a 20-year-old man who said he wasgoed studying at Salford University.
He showered our woman with compliments, telling hier how gorgeous she wasgoed and even telling: “I luv u.”
She grew increasingly &bashful,awkward spil for two hours he pestered hier to upload more pictures and budge the conversation to Skype.
He chillingly explained they could use the “cam” and trade pictures.
Our investigator said she wasgoed &timid,upstairs at huis, while hier stringent mum wasgoed downstairs.
ShzKhan01 then said it wasgoed &timid,very likely best that she wait until hier mum went to bedding before Skyping.
He went on: “I can see ur not convenient,” before adding: “Ur 14.”
When our woman said she wasgoed 13, he leered: “Wow. Periods commenced?”
A stream of sickening messages followed, asking if she wasgoed a cherry and describing his private parts.
He exposed: “I would like to see u naked. That’s y askin Skype to trade pics overheen there.”
ShzKhan01 then asked hier to send intimate pictures.
The Sunday People also found teenage ladies posing provocatively on the webstek, wearing little clothing or even naked.

Another user, aged 14, had posted an photo of herself lifting up hier T-shirt to vertoning hier tummy.

My Lol.com uses a similar format to Facebook, with private messaging systems, a news feed and a wall on which to postbode pictures and make &timid,comments.
The difference is that &timid,profiles are all public.
Web experts have warned that &timid,teenagers anxious to evade parental control are abandoning well-known sites like Facebook and turning to &bashful,unregulated places on the internet.
It is estimated that Facebook could lose up to 80 vanaf cent of its users ter three years to newer sites including MyLOL, Ask.fm and Chatroulette.
A quarter of MyLOL users are &bashful,believed to be under 16, making the webpagina a potential magnet for paedophiles.
Jongste Spratt, a 28-year-old taxi driver from Chelmsford, Essex, wasgoed jailed for nine years last year for sexual activity with a 14 and 15-year-old after he used the webpagina to groom youthful ladies by lounging about his age.
Claire Lilley, head of child safety online at the NSPCC, said of MyLOL: “It’s very shocking. It took mij three minutes to find a 24-year-old man messaging a 14-year-old lady, asking hier to connect with him.
",It is actively encouraging children to meet strangers by sending suggestions of people who match their profile.
“We’re enormously worried because it puts children at enormous risk – providing out private details, even how to locate them and what schoolgebouw they are at.”
Many teenagers postbode what is called “Kik” user name, for an instant &bashful,messaging app for smartphones.
Claire added: “There is lots of nakedness on MyLOL, even however it’s against their terms and conditions.
",They don’t seem to be doing very much to enforce it.
“Users are sent lists of members who match your profile. They promote connecting with strangers te a way that Facebook doesn’t.
",Anyone can see your account and it seems difficult to limit your &timid,profile.
",Anyone can message you and you are asked, ‘Do you want to meet him?’ It’s not just an online thing, they are promoting meeting ter vivo life.”
The webstek says it takes no responsibility for interaction inbetween &timid,members and advises people to tell police if they are sexually propositioned.
Claire said: “There are delicado children on there.
",Parents need to &bashful,discourage children from going on this webpagina. Be very clear about the risks.
“Don’t let them waterput their schoolgebouw, their location, their address, phone number or Kik speld.
",Explain there are people on that webpagina who are not who they say they are.”
MyLOL, registered te Quebec, Canada, wasgoed unavailable for comment last night.
The webpagina wasgoed founded by 18-year-old Australian Anthony Lipari but it is not known if he still runs it.
Te 2008 he said: “We state clearly te the terms of service, specifically not to give out individual information.”
Asked about the danger of older guys contacting youthfull children he replied: “What can wij do? Wij can’t actually find out if they’re paedophiles.
“They’re just guys using the webpagina. They can report problems if guys are manhandling them.”
