A number of top Hong Kong models spoke recently about being propositioned for sex in return for large sums of money. Requests came through agents or other avenues, sometimes directly asking ‘Will she sleep with me?’ The models said they were outraged that their coworkers were involved in such immoral activities.
One man even directly posted on model Naomi’s Facebook:
Coz I found your photo …you are so pretty >< You available for sex trade? 我想月包 ar...$1x,xxx ok ma? At least in the Xmas time...please Please consider Thanks
Which is grammatically as disturbing as the intent behind it!
Model Lulu was asked to spend 5 days in the Maldives with one man, by his secretary, for HK$500,000.
Prices seem to range from HK$1,000 for unknown models, to HK$3,000 if they’ve been on TV. Some men even paid to have sex with well known pole dancers at HK$570,000 for one night. A Taiwanese man reportedly offered one model HK$150,000 to sleep with him.
In 2011, the mainland and Hong Kong rumour mills went into overdrive when it was alleged that numerous Chinese and Hong Kong celebrities were moonlighting as (very) high class prostitutes. ‘Bing Bing’ (no family name given, but not hard to guess) was rumoured to charge 500,000 yuan per night.
