Would-be gigolos cheated in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian men are being conned by newspaper ads supposedly searching for male gigolos to service Western and Middle Eastern women, newspapers reported Sunday.

The New Straits Times said men had gone into debt with loan sharks in order to pay deposits to a recruitment agent who promised them a lucrative job as a male escort.
"He told me I could earn up to 10,000 dollars a month," said one man taken in by the scam who identified himself only as "Alan".

Alan paid the agent 1,000 ringgit (270 dollars) and shortly after was told to meet a client at a city hotel. He waited for hours until he spotted a Western women who seemed to be searching for someone.
"I thought she was my client so I approached her and introduced myself. To my surprise, instead of receiving words of welcome, I got cursed and insulted," he told the daily.
"After being humiliated in front of others, I just walked away and realised that this was not the sort of experience I was looking forward to," said Alan who reported the scam to the Malaysian Chinese Association's complaints bureau.
"I want people out there to know that there is no such thing as male escort services and to stay out of such a con."

Another victim, "Martin", said he had also waited for hours to see a nonexistent client in a hotel room, had to go into hiding after borrowing his 1,000 ringgit deposit from loan sharks who he was unable to repay.
"I worked out in a gym to make sure I looked good, and was strong for my clients. I even drank lots of essence of chicken," lamented Martin.
"I actually walked up to several foreigners and asked them if they were my clients. I was nearly slapped by two women."

Michael Chong from the Malaysian Chinese Association, a political party that is a member of the ruling National Front coalition, said he feared that many more people had been taken in.
"The advertisement was published last month and I am sure there are others who suffered a fate similar to these two men," he told the newspaper.

Yeah, it's a tough job but someone's got to do it.

Don't know about Malaysia, never been there, but otherwise it's not true, in my opinion.

There are plenty of male escort services and a large number of gigolos, professional or amateur, in the U.S. alone.

A quick check on Yahoo! shows 40,400 occurrences of "male escort Kuala Lumpur" so I think there are plenty there like in any other city in the world.

Malaysian MPs call for foreign prostitutes to be whipped

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysian lawmakers have called for foreign prostitutes to be whipped as a deterrent to others considering coming here to work in the sex industry, a report said last week.

Mohamed Aziz, from the ruling National Front coalition, told parliament that he had met a transvestite from Brunei who said he moved to Malaysia because the rules here were more lenient.

"He told me that in Brunei, prostitutes would be whipped," he said, according to the Star daily.

"If we can impose whipping for drug addicts, why can't we do the same for prostitutes," he said in a proposal that was supported by at least one other lawmaker.

Malaysia's government is considering introducing tougher laws against prostitution amid concerns over an influx of foreign sex workers who are using tourist visas to enter the country.

Deputy Internal Security Minister Johari Baharum has said that over 15,500 foreign women were arrested for prostitution from 2004 to July 2006, including more than 6,000 from China, 4,596 from Indonesia, 2,613 from Thailand and 1,316 from the Philippines.

Women from Vietnam, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, India, Myanmar, Russia, Laos and Cambodia also come to Malaysia to engage in the sex trade, he said.

Prostitution is illegal in the predominantly Muslim nation.

Malaysian state's Muslim rulers deny approving discos

KUALA LUMPUR -- A Malaysian state ruled by a hardline Muslim party has denied it will allow discos, ruling out even the sex-segregated, modest-dressing version it was reported to have approved.

The Pan-Malaysia Islamic Party (PAS) which governs northern Kelantan recently lifted a ban on rock music as part of a campaign to win broader appeal in the multi-ethnic country.

But its Local Government, Housing and Health chief Takiyuddin Hassan said that reports it would allow discos -- as long as patrons did not drink, wear revealing clothes or dance with the opposite sex -- were wide of the mark.

"The report has been taken out of context. What I said was that there would not be a problem to have dances at functions if they (dances) were to involve only men or only women," he told the state Bernama news agency.

"Likewise, husbands and wives, they can dance but there have to be certain rules," he added.

Kelantan is the only Malaysian state ruled by PAS.

Adultery on the rise in Malaysia: report

KUALA LUMPUR, July 23, 2007 (AFP) -

Extra-marital affairs are on the rise in Malaysia, as women seek to punish their cheating husbands or
find comfort after suffering abuse at the hands of their partners, a report
said Monday.

Meanwhile, the number of paternity tests is also increasing as suspicious men want to make sure they have fathered their wives' children, the New Straits Times reported.

"It has been on the rise over the past 10 years. Ten years ago, women hardly cheated on their husbands. I only received a handful of cases then," Paul Jambunathan, psychologist at International Medical University, told the paper.

"Most do it out of anger at being cheated by their husbands ... (In) those days, women kept silent and continued receiving abuse from their partners. But today, women are more aware of their rights."

Jambunathan said that out of every five couples that he counsels on a monthly basis, an average of three women have cheated on their husbands.

A small percentage of women also engage in affairs because of dissatisfaction with their sex lives, he added.

Primulapathi Jaya, head of the government's chemistry department, said the number of fathers demanding DNA tests on their newborns was rising.

In 2006, 50 men made such requests, more than double the 20 cases reported in 2004, he said.
Malaysia's National Council of Women's Organisations vice president Faridah Khalid said the number of men who cheated still far surpassed the number of women having affairs.

"There might be a handful of women cheating on their husbands. But do not blame them. There could be a lot of push factors that led them in that direction," she said.

Malaysia to block planned gay church

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 13, 2007 (AFP) - Muslim-majority Malaysia will block a plan by the country's first and only openly gay pastor to establish a church embracing homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals, a minister said Monday.

Reverend Ouyang Wen Feng, an ethnic Chinese Malaysian ordained in the US, caused controversy after saying he wanted to set up the church by 2010.

The government would block the plan, Tourism Minister Adnan Tengku Mansor told AFP, adding the country had always sought to portray itself as a "family-oriented" holiday destination.

"We have no intention of being portrayed the same way like other cities such as Bangkok or those other cities in that league," Mansor said, apparently referring to the Thai capital's sex industry.

"We are here to be seen as a multicultural country with people who are good, excellent followers of their respective religions," Mansor added.

Homosexuality falls under a Malaysian law prohibiting sodomy, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and whipping.

Ouyang's plan to start the church had stirred anxiety, Reverend Wong Kin Kong, the secretary general of Malaysia's National Evangelical Christian Fellowship, said last week.

This was "because Christians do not want others to assume they condone such a thing," he said.
But Ouyang remained unfazed and urged a congregation of about 80 people -- including his male partner -- to "reclaim faith and celebrate our sexuality" in an underground mass Sunday.

"For some of us, especially our gay brothers and sisters, we have experienced first hand that Christianity has been used to persecute minorities," Ouyang told the mass, according to press reports.

Malaysia's Islamic court orders same-sex marriage split

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4, 2007 (AFP) - Malaysia's Islamic court has ordered a couple who have been married for five years to split up after ruling that the husband was in fact a woman, reports said Tuesday.

Lawyers for Mohd Soffian Mohamad, 40, had argued that their client was a hermaphrodite, the New Straits Times reported.

But a Sharia court judge dismissed the claims on the evidence of medical experts, who testified that Mohd Soffian was not a man, and ordered a separation from the wife, 43-year-old Zaiton Aziz.

"According to (Zaiton's) statement, she had never seen or touched her husband's private parts and had taken him to be a man all along and that she felt good and satisfied together," judge Che Saufi Che Husin said.

"This is astounding and illogical. It is abnormal to go through life as husband and wife as such," he was quoted by the newspaper as saying.

The court annulled the partnership on the grounds that it was a same-sex marriage, a practice banned in Muslim-majority Malaysia.

A lawyer for the pair, who arrived in matching yellow outfits and left together after the verdict, said they would discuss whether to appeal.

The couple were legally married in a mosque December 2002 by an imam, but the local religious department refused to register the marriage after Zaiton's family questioned Mohd Soffian's gender, Malaysia's Bernama news agency said.

Mohd Soffian must also change the name and gender on his identity card to match his birth certificate, which lists him as Mazinah Mohamad.

Malaysia's health minister resigns over sex video

Chua Soi Lek

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia's health minister resigned Wednesday after acknowledging that he and a female friend were the couple in a secretly filmed sex video, saying "some Malaysians have a holier-than-thou attitude."

A one-hour DVD recording circulated anonymously last week showed Health Minister Chua Soi Lek, a married man with three children, performing sexual acts with the woman in a hotel room.

Chua, 61, acknowledged Tuesday he was the man in the video, and described the woman as a "personal friend." He refused to elaborate.

The former physician has risen fast in the government in recent years, but the scandal turned into a high-profile embarrassment for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who brought Chua into the Cabinet in 2004.

Chua said he was resigning immediately as health minister, a member of Parliament and vice president of the Malaysian Chinese Association, the No. 2 party in Abdullah's ruling coalition.

On Tuesday, he had said he would not quit his Cabinet post despite concerns that the scandal would provide political ammunition for opposition groups, which often raise allegations of government immorality and misconduct.

Chua told reporters Wednesday that he had discovered that people "could not accept" his public apology for his actions.

"Some Malaysians have a holier-than-thou attitude," he said.

The about-turn appeared aimed at helping the government curtail any political fallout ahead of general elections widely expected by mid-2008.

"As a minister, he has committed an act that cannot be accepted by society, instead of being a leader who maintains his integrity," said Mahfuz Omar, an official in the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party.

Chua had apologized to his family and supporters Tuesday. He said he did not make the film, suggesting it was made by his political rivals. In a statement Tuesday, Chua's wife said she stood by her husband.

As health minister, Chua has been praised for cutting bureaucratic delays in the medical service and working to combat AIDS, smoking and poor eating habits.

Family and wealth, not sex, the mark of a macho man

KUALA LUMPUR: If you did not receive any special gift or candlelight dinner for Valentine"s Day, don't fret.

That"s because Malaysian men rate sex and romance lowly when it comes to masculinity. To them, manhood means having a good job, taking care of the family and ensuring enough money.

Image
Prof Sarinah: "A part of the male personality is not to show emotions"

The men of China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, on the other hand, think sex is more important.

According to a masculinity study on Asian men, urban Malaysian men rate sex and romance lowly — only 0.9% chose an active sex life while a mere 0.7% picked success with women as important indicators of their masculinity.

On the upside, Malaysian men are good providers with family as their priority.

Family and money — next to good jobs — are their top concerns and the main defining facets of their manhood — 24% of them rate having a good job as the most important thing in being a "man".

The Masculinity in Asian Men research was conducted on 10, 934 men aged 20 to 75 years old in five Asian countries: China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia.

Sponsored by Bayer HealthCare, the study involved 3,000 Malaysian men and was completed in 2006 but the findings are yet to be published.

In other Asian countries, though, most men picked active sex life (89%), success with women (87.9%) and physical attractiveness (85%) as key indicators of masculinity.

Chartered psychologist with the Health Research Development Unit at the Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya, Prof Dr Sarinah Low Abdullah, said this attitude is conditioned by society.

"Masculinity is very much influenced by socio-demographic parameters. For most men, their sense of self, sexual desire and behaviour are related to their sense of power, respect and success," said Prof Sarinah, one of three Malaysian academics in the Europe-Asian team of researchers.

She added that the masculinity of Asian men was still an unexplored area in sexual heath studies.

"There have been many research looking into the masculinity and sexual health of European and American men but no proper one has been carried out on Asian men yet," she said.

The research was divided into three parts: men's attitude towards life events, sexual behaviour and their attitude towards erectile dysfunction.

The findings, nevertheless, reinforced the male stereotypes in the individual participating countries, specifically in their concept of masculinity: the Taiwanese and Japanese quoted being a man of honour as the most important quality, the Chinese defined it as having control over one's life while for South Koreans, it was having an active sex life.

A common characteristic among all Asian men, however, was their inability to express themselves, especially when it comes to sexual health, she said,

"A part of the male personality is not to show emotions. They cannot cry or show that they have problems. They won't even talk about their sex problems unless they are in excruciating pain. Often, they need women to push them to open up."

Said Prof Sarinah, the research revealed that importance of career and financial status seem to decrease with age for men, while physical attractiveness, sexual performance and success with women will increase as they get older.

However, she noted, no research has been carried out on how the older men channel their increased sexuality.

Islamic party proposes matchmaking service

By Thomas Bell, South East Asia Correspondent
27 February 2008

Malaysia's Islamic opposition has proposed matchmaking services for unmarried women in a bid to woo voters ahead of next week's elections.

Previous elections have been marked by vote rigging and strict controls on opposition activity

The Malaysian Islamic party has caused controversy in the past for suggesting that ugly women should be given priority by the public services to compensate for their limited marriage prospects.

"We are providing benefits like matchmaking and reduced dowry for women," said Nasharuddin Mat Isa, the party's deputy president. "It's about reassuring voters ... that we are the best choice for the people."

The governing coalition is unpopular because of rising inflation and a series of corruption scandals. There is also anger over racial discrimination among the country's large ethnic minorities.

The Islamic party, which in the past has banned nightclubs and alcohol, and advocated that criminals be punished by amputation or stoning, is trying to soften its image to appeal to non-Muslims.

Together with the two other main opposition parties, they have agreed not to field rival candidates in the hope of cutting the government's majority below two thirds for the first time since 1969.

Previous elections have been marked by vote rigging and strict controls on opposition activity.

Malaysian charged under new trafficking law
13 May 2008

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A Malaysian man who allegedly lured two Thai women into the country to become sex workers became the first person charged under a tough new law against human trafficking, a lawyer said Tuesday.

Ee Chin Kai pleaded innocent in a court in southern Malaysia on Monday to two charges of bringing in the 27-year-old women and exploiting them to work as prostitutes, said Ee's lawyer, Noordin Hussin.

If convicted, Ee faces up to 15 years in prison and a fine for each charge under the Anti-Human Trafficking Act that came into effect last year.

"This one could be a test" of the new law, Noordin said.

The court scheduled a hearing for Sept. 17 and released Ee on bail.

Ee was arrested in March while the women were allegedly staying with him, Noordin said.

Human rights groups have long lobbied for Malaysia to punish human traffickers, many of whom previously escaped prosecution because there was no specific law to use against them.

The U.S. State Department, in its annual Trafficking in Persons Report released last June, downgraded Malaysia from a watch list to a blacklist "for its failure to show satisfactory progress in combating trafficking in persons."

Malaysian officials have said the new law could resolve such complaints by encouraging police, immigration departments and other authorities to pursue, prosecute and convict alleged human traffickers.

Aegile Fernandez, a representative of Malaysian labor rights group Tenaganita, said the charge against Ee was a "plus point for Malaysia" and voiced hopes that there would be successful prosecutions in the near future.

Fernandez estimated that tens of thousands of people are trafficked into Malaysia each year. Most come from other Southeast Asian countries and end up in forced labor in the sex industry or in plantations, factories or other menial work.

According to police statistics, nearly 400 foreign women were rescued "from vice" between 2004 and 2006, but activists say there are many more victims because the sex industry is so lucrative.

14 held in raid on suspected gay joint

PENANG: Police detained 14 men at a fitness and sauna centre believed to be a front for a gay activities in Jalan Fettes here.

In the 6pm raid on Saturday, police from the state anti-vice department also seized 1,800 condoms from the premises.

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Azam Abd Hamid said six naked men were caught in three toilets while the others were found patronising the joint.

"We also found used condoms littered all over the place," he said.

ACP Azam said the suspects, aged between 20 and 30, had been remanded to assist in investigations into immoral activities at the centre.

He said police raided the premises after keeping it under watch.

"This is the third time the centre has been raided since last November."

He said police would make a recommendation to the local authorities to close down the centre.

On Nov 5 last year, police raided the centre and discovered it was used to host a sex party. They rounded up 34 men, aged between 22 and 55. Among those arrested was a Briton.

ACP Azam said the raid was part of an on-going operation codenamed Ops Rose aimed at curbing immoral activities and "cleaning" up places, like Leith Street, Penang Road and the Esplanade, frequented by transvestites.

Malaysian women urged to carry condoms

Sun June 1, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia's deputy health minister urged every woman in the country to carry a condom to protect against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, a news report said Sunday.

"This is not to debase them but to protect them. Women are the first ones to get exploited by their (HIV-positive) partners," Abdul Latiff Ahmad was quoted as saying by the Sunday Star newspaper.

"But this is just a suggestion, it's up to them."

Abdul Latiff made the remarks to coincide with the International Aids Memorial Day, which was celebrated openly Saturday for the first time in the Muslim-majority country in a bid to reduce stigma for victims. In the past, the event was held behind closed doors.

Last year, 745 Malaysian women were identified as HIV-positive and 193 women were diagnosed with AIDS, he said in the report.

Officials have said nearly 81,000 Malaysians have been infected with HIV. Less than 10 percent of them are women, but the number is steadily rising.

Abdul Latiff and other health ministry officials could not be reached Sunday for comment.

Malaysian AIDS Council President Adeeba Kamarulzaman was quoted as saying besides sex workers many women who contract HIV are housewives, infected unknowingly by their husbands.

"It's not that people don't know that condoms can protect them. But there are some men who do not care to take the precaution, even though they know they have HIV," she said.
