Uplifting Tale

Maybe it's just me, but I seriously doubt that all the men who sought her services had any problem with their libido. I think it is quite possible that at least some of them used the libido thing as an excuse to qualify for the services. But of course I have no evidence to support my suspicion.

Interestingly, there is a mention that she's not a prostitute! Here is inter alia a definition of the word which I found in The Pocket OXFORD Dictionary (Revised Edition)—the most practical and user-friendly pocket dictionary available:

—n. woman who engages in sexual activities for payment.

Obviously quite debatable, but technically speaking, if construed in a particular way, maybe she is qualified to be a prostitute. But I leave it to you all to decide on your own.

What I am keen to know, especially from the Muslim readers, whether such a profession is halal? I'm asking this strictly from the religious point of view, regardless of whether she is licensed to do what she's doing. And this is all assuming that she's a Muslim, of course.

Please don't get all too excited about the above paragraph; I'm just asking a question. I'm not asking you to agree or not; merely seeking your opinions.

What do you think?

To put it humorously, I would say, she,like Digi,TM,Hotlink,Celcom,etc, can be classified as a "service provider" for men with problem with their libido.

This just is irresponsible journalism.. They don't give a full name or even an aim or goal of this story.. What is the point? It is like they are just trying to get a rise out of readers, not report actual news..

Ridiculous journalism. It is more like an advertisement for illegal sex work than anything else.

Socrates29,

It would be interesting to know if she's deriving any benefits from providing those services, other than the money.

Sarah,

Irresponsible journalism is one of those things you'll have to get used to when you come to Malaysia. We have plenty of those here.
