According to the latest figures from the Department of STI Control (DSC) Clinic show that, between 2006 and 2010, the number of STIs reported among 10- to 19-year-olds peaked at 829 in 2007. It has fallen since then, but the figure remains at close to two cases per day in 2010 (626 in total).
One teenager Jensen (not his real name) contracted gonorrhoea, a common STD when he was 15 years old. He reportedly paid to have sex with prostitutes up to three times a week in his home when his parents were away.
Besides prostitution, casual sex with strangers is also another culprit. A 22 year old NUS student Kelvin (not his real name) contracted HIV from having unprotected sex with gay men he came to know on the internet.
The easy availability of porn and sexual services on the internet may have fueled the prospering vice trade in Singapore, both legal and underground.
While prostitution is legal in Singapore in many brothels confined in red-light districts, many men still prefer to solicit the services of freelance prostitutes who market their services online either on their own or through pimps and social escort agencies.
Young girls are especially desired by men because of the misconception that it is ‘safer’ to have sex with them as they are more ‘fresh’. However, some girls in the vice trade have already ‘serviced’ many men like the underage prostitute involved in the online vice syndicate who had sex with 48 men 58 times in less than two years.
In spite of the recent police crackdown on having sex with underage prostitutes, a quick check on Singapore’s famous sex forum still shows many postings offering young babes for sex.
