SCHOOLBOYS are willing to go hungry so that they can spend their money on illicit sex, Harian Metro reported.
Some were even willing to share their pocket money to fulfil their basic instinct, the tabloid said in its exposé.
“My mother gives me RM4 every day for my school money and I skip my meals to save the money.
“At the end of the month, my friends and I pool our money to visit prostitutes,” said a 15-year-old boy who introduced himself as Ahmad Firdaus.
The paper learnt that the students would visit brothels in the day, when the rate is cheaper.
Ahmad, interviewed by the daily in Kuala Lumpur, said he had been going to these places for a year after being persuaded by an older friend.
Initially, the elder youth, in his 20s, took him to Lorong Haji Taib “to just mencuci mata (ogle)” at the women soliciting there.
“A man who confided that he was a pimp offered to get me a woman for RM50,” Ahmad said, adding that the experience was an eye-opener for teens craving to try something new.
Another friend of his, however, had a painful encounter when a man, who claimed he was the boyfriend of the woman the boy had booked, beat him up.
The 15-year-old boy, who said his name was Ahmad Rosli, said he has since stayed away from vice dens and regretted his immoral activities.
