Compensated dating hong kong video
Sze wanted the same for herself, so her classmates introduced her to Internet chat forums where she met male customers. Last year, a 16-year-old Hong Kong girl was killed in a gruesome murder after she went to a 24-year-old man's apartment for a compensated date.
The man, Ting Kai-Tai, killed the teenager, dismembered her body and flushed the remains down the toilet.
"When a court looks at sentencing, the greater the age difference, the more serious it (the sentence) is." Why do young girls get involved in compensated dating?
The reasons vary from an unstable home life to a desire for material goods, Chiu said.
Ting Kai-tai murdered and dismembered the girl after she agreed to meet him in exchange for cash and presents and went home with him after in exchange for a 1,500 Hong Kong dollar (193 US dollars) payment.
A survey earlier this year found that teenagers in the fashion-conscious city often got involved in compensated dating to earn money for designer clothes and brand-name products.
She has tried to talk her old friends out of compensated dating, but they are not listening, she said. Maybe they have more serious family problems or some other burdens.The girls -- even though they post their details on the Internet -- they think they can quit.Even if they encounter the guys, if he is not good-looking, she can quit and say 'I don't do it.' They think they have a lot of power to control whether they do it or not, so they think of it very differently from prostitution." Chiu, the social worker, is currently working with about 20 girls who are trying to leave the world of compensated dating.Improved family communication is one solution to preventing girls from becoming involved in compensated dating, Chiu said. After a pregnancy scare and a number of unpredictable customers, Sze said her self-esteem plummeted. "She helped me understand that making money respectably is actually not that hard in Hong Kong.I finally realized that it was wrong to make money by selling my body.
