A bigger issue (but not more abhorrent), in the Phils, than the children forced into online sex shows, is the voluntary and legal-aged, for-profit, cybersex houses. There are far more cebersex houses in the Phils employing legal individuals than there are forcing children into these practices. There is a larger issue with respect to sex tourism and child sex/pornography trade, yes.
The Phils is an extremely Catholic country, with some Victorian-era cultural expectations. The cybersex trade has provided a lot of individuals (not just women) the ability to make very good money very easily in a country with an exceeding percentage of poverty.
Strip clubs are illegal throughout the country, but depending on gets paid off, determines whether or not they are overlooked.
Noynoy Aquino is doing a lot to abolish corruption and get general crimes under control, but has the Church to deal with while implementing some of these laws (for instance, the Phils is still unable to get free distribution of condoms for those who need but can't afford them into effect due to the intervention of the Church).
There is also a huge growth of non-sexual cyber crime in the Phils, especially with identity theft and sales scams. Unfortunately, credit cards and fraud protection are not wide-spread, so people are more often required to provide bank information as a means of making payments (unless a customer can convince the seller to ship via LBC and have LBC accept and handle the payment upon delivery, which I'm not sure is an available service-I haven't asked at LBC).
Many people rely on the bank receipt as payment for money transferred as proof of payment, which is unreliable and rarely offers protection to the consumer.
But, this is also not to defend the law, but to help in clarification.
