A GROUP of male sex workers have been scouring for clients in Penang using various social networks, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
The men placed advertisements on the Internet, stating they were looking for “friends”.
Some of the men even posted their contact numbers and sexy poses of themselves with price tags attached in photographs, the daily reported.
The male sex workers were from China, India, Thailand, Monaco, Australia and New Zealand, it said, adding that they would stay in hotels as guests to avoid being caught in a raid.
They reportedly charged between RM150 and RM250 per session while those from Western countries charged an extra RM100.
However, an investigative reporter found out that these sex workers were willing to mark down the price when he claimed he couldn't afford their rates.
Customers were also told to pay for transport fees if the prostitutes were to provide their “services” outside the hotels where they are based.
