MALAYSIA - Male escorts up north are said to be making more money than most white-collar workers by charging up to RM600 for a four-hour session.
Notices to recruit male escorts can be seen in several northern states.
In a probe, a Nanyang Siang Pau reporter posed as an interested candidate for the job and called a number given.
A man named Eddie answered and told him that a male escort earns two to four times more than a white-collar employee, and can get between RM400 and RM600 for two to four hours' "work".
He said that male escorts only needed to make sure the clients were "happy and satisfied" by chit-chatting with them or providing services such as a massage.
When asked to meet to discuss further details about the job, Eddie declined and said that everything could be arranged over the phone.
He also told the reporter that he would take half of the fees charged as commission.
