Hong Kong Teens Sell Sex For Shopping Money

"Compensated dating" is a growing and frightening trend among Hong Kong's teenage girls. The term refers to the practice of requiring a man to pay a fee for a date that more often than not includes sex. Shockingly, many teenage girls engaged in "compensated dating" are not selling themselves just to get by — they're reportedly doing it for extra shopping money.

CNN tells the story of Sze, a young woman who would charge $350 for dates when she was 16.

Sze said she started compensated dating because many of her classmates at an all-girls school were doing it. She says she became jealous when she saw the designer clothes, bags and cosmetics they bought with the money they earned through compensated dating.

This story — which sounds a lot like, well, prostitution — is especially troubling because the girls are so young. But, assuming that a woman is of age and that everything is consensual, do you see anything wrong with women using dates, and potentially sex, as a means of income?

Wonderful parenting bringing these girls up. I'm not old, btw. Just turned 24. Self respect is not an old person thing, it's an intelligence thing. Pathetic little sluts...

See, that's what this chick is promoting to young ladies. Objectifying yourself for money is not hard work. You are accepting a hand out. Legs open up, here comes the hand out. Little girl: if you are having sex you don't want, you need to talk to someone. You are hurting yourself for the long run, and you don't even know it yet. You earn a lot more respect when you make a man work for it, rather than giving (or selling) it away for nothing. It's not healthy...
