What a whopper of a front page report in today’s NST! Malaysian men have a lot to be proud of! Not only do they top the world list in having sex most frequently, they also like doing it with prostitutes!
The reasons proferred for the sexual preferences of Malaysian men is that the Malaysian women are too “career-obsessed” and do not communicate well sexually! Prostitutes treat them “like kings, thus restoring their pride and ego”.
The underlying reason for marital infidelity and men “visiting prostitutes to live out their sexual fantasies” is a basic one viz the lack of a “solid religious education”. What this really means is that morality is at its ebb among Malaysian men, and visiting prostitutes shows this sorry state of emotional and spiritual depravation! What this shows is an utter disregard for the family values of responsibility, steadfastness and fidelity!
Yes – blame it on the women rather than look within yourselves!
What a revelation!
While acknowledging that prostitution is an age-old activity that fulfils the abundant and varied sexual desires of men with women who are willing to sell themselves, it’s still a shocker to learn that it is rampant in modern Malaysia, in 1 Malaysia!
It is commonsensical to relate the practice of prostitution with the availibility of prostitutes. The corrollary to this argument is that if prostitutes are not so readily availible and cheap, the practice would not be so widespread!
It is also commonsensical to link the inflow and influx of foreign prostitutes of all colours, shapes and sizes with the country’s immigration rules and regulations. With the national tourism drive it has become so easy and so cheap for foreigners to appear at our doorstep with attractive business and leisure and pleasure packages. We invite foreign workers and students freely into our land of plenty. This of course includes the female sex workers who provide their services to the multitude of “bachelor” foreign workers and students that are flooding the country.
It’s no wonder that the sex trade is so lucrative!
But the real wonder is that the Malaysian men are so spiritually weak that they are ready to succumb to these sexual temptations! The real wonder is that they are blaming it on their wives and partners!

The Procuress by Dirck van Baburen (1622)
Prostitution is the act or practice of engaging in sex acts for hire.
While prostitution is legal or tolerated in some cultures, it is illegal or socially discouraged in others. Motivations for suppression can vary significantly, from basic moral repugnance to concerns about the effects on society and on those who practice it, as well as whether it is an exploitative practice. In most cultures the prostitutes (the persons who sell sexual servicies) are socially stigmatized; their customers less so.
The word “prostitution” can also be used metaphorically to mean debasement or working towards an unworthy cause.
‘To prostitute’ is derived from a composition of two Latin words: (preposition) pro and (verb) statuere. A literal translation therefore would be: ‘to expose’, ‘to place up front’.
A variety of terms are used for those who engage in prostitution, some of which distinguish between different kinds, or imply a value judgment about them. Common alternatives for prostitute include escort and whore, although not all professional escorts are prostitutes.
The English word whore derives from the Old English word hōra, from the Indo-European root kā meaning “desire”.
Use of the word whore is widely considered pejorative, especially in its modern slang form of ho’. In Germany most prostitutes’ organizations deliberately use the word Hure (whore) since they feel that prostitute is a bureaucratic term. Those seeking to remove the social stigma associated with prostitution often promote terminology such as sex worker, commercial sex worker (CSW), “tantric engineer” (coined by author Robert Anton Wilson), or sex trade worker. A hooker or streetwalker solicits customers in public places; a call girl makes appointments by phone.
Correctly or not, prostitute without specifying a gender is commonly assumed to be female; compound terms such as male prostitute or male escort are therefore used to identify males. Those offering services to female customers are commonly known as gigolos; those offering services to male customers are hustlers or rent boys.
Economic and social stratification
The customers of prostitutes are known as johns or tricks in North America and punters in the British Isles. These slang terms are used among both prostitutes and law enforcement for persons who solicit prostitutes . The term john may have originated from the customer practice of giving their name as “John”, a common name in English-speaking countries, in an effort to maintain anonymity. In some places, men who drive around red-light districts for the purpose of soliciting prostitutes are also known as kerb crawlers.
