The New Paper
A double life of books and sex

She is only 17 but has a bank balance of over RM80,000 ($34,450).

The secret as to how the teenager came to own so much cash came to light after she was hospitalised in Kuala Lumpur.

The first bombshell she dropped would have caused concern to any parent - her vagina was injured.


The second revelation: She sustained the injury while providing sexual services to a man from the Middle East.

Her third shocking confession was the money in her bank account. She had earned that by selling her body.

The teenager who hails from Terengganu had been offering sexual services in Kuala Lumpur since 2006, reported Harian Metro.

According to the tabloid, the girl charged between RM 2,000 and RM4,000 for her sexual services.

A source at her school told the newspaper that the revelations were shocking and only then some in the school understood why she made almost weekly trips to Kuala Lumpur.

Her double life was exposed when she didn't turn up in school for several days in March. A teacher was asked to go to her house and investigate.

Her family was shocked to hear that the teen was not in school.

She was in fact at that time hospitalised in Kuala Lumpur.

It was only when they confronted her, that they came face to face with a series of shocking details.

First, it was the staggering amount of money in her bank account.

The source at her school said the sexual services were arranged by a middleman and the teenager's clients included foreign businessmen.

How she ended up in prostitution is not known but the girl is said to be bright with an attractive personality.

It is also not known how she managed to keep her secret from her family for so long.


The daily alleged that the teenager frequently flew to Kuala Lumpur on Friday evenings. A luxury car would be at the airport to pick her up before taking her to a hotel where her client would be waiting.

She would spent the night there before returning home.

But her double life came to an end in March after she was admitted to a private hospital in Kuala Lumpur to receive treatment for her injured vagina.

Harian Metro reported that a Middle Eastern client had paid her RM4,000 for sex.

It was during their illicit encounter that she was hurt.

The source told the tabloid that only a few teachers know about her secret.

Her school has taken steps to conceal the matter so that her future will not be jeopardised.

Harian Metro alleged that her case is not new. It said that there had been similar cases, as early as five years ago, of female students in Terengganu offering sexual services.

However, the authorities could not trace the teenagers because they usually ply their trade in Kuala Lumpur.

"My favourite was "The Aftermath for Malaysia Election" - (in my opinion), this was a very well crafted world standard image, it is even suitable for a Time magazine cover!"
