University students turn to prostituting to make extra money
By John Isaac
University students and professionals seeking to live luxurious lives have since began turning to "mobile prostitution" to make extra money.
According to Bukit Aman Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division (D7) principal assistant director SAC Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa, this type of sex work was not confined to one place.
"Sex workers using online platforms to get customers are raking in as much as RM6,000 a month.
"These sex workers were women in their 20s to 30s who hold professional jobs or were university students.
"Many of these women wanted more money for a luxurious lifestyle," he said.
According to reports in The Star, Rohaimi said pimps would advertise the women through social media and they would vet the customers first before allowing them to meet up.
“This vetting process is important to ensure the identities of the women are not leaked, because most of the women are only involved in prostitution on a part-time basis,” he said.
He said the “mobile prostitutes” also did not use cheap hotels to meet clients.
This made it difficult for enforcement officers to trace their activities.
