DUE to the high demand for sexual services, women from China have been paying an average of RM10,000 to syndicates to help them get jobs as prostitutes, reported Kosmo! Ahad.
According to sources, the fee was to pay for flight costs, food and lodging during their stay in Malaysia.
As soon as the women arrive in the country, they will be received by agents from the syndicate, who will look into all necessities including finding customers for the women.
Sources also said there were women who have settled their debt with the syndicate and returned to China first before coming back to Malaysia by themselves.
Police statistics have revealed that Chinese women were the largest group of illegal foreigners out of the total 11,832 arrested over the past year, with 5,922 being detained.
> A 16-year-old girl has admitted to an odd sexual fetish she enjoyed having sex during her period and gets turned on when the love bite on her boyfriend's neck draws blood, reported Metro Ahad.
The girl, known as Iza, also got turned on when she ate chicken which had blood oozing out of its flesh, as a result of not being cooked properly.
Iza said her fetish for blood started when she got to know a teenager who worked at a restaurant near her house.
“He liked to be intimate when I was having my period and we used to have sex when I was covered with blood,” she said, adding that the relationship ended when her mother caught them having sex at home.
Iza revealed that she had also offered sexual services through social networking sites in the past but has since repented and joined a welfare home for women and youths.
