From the Malaysia-Chronicle:
IVY, in her 20s, used to work in a massage parlour and part of what she earned from her customers was shared with her employer.OK
Two months ago, she decided to go solo and, posing as an executive, entered high-end entertainment joints and clubs to hand-pick her clients.
"My wages in the massage parlour was based on the number of customers I served and my earnings were shared with the owners (of the massage parlours). By working on my own, I get to set my own rates," the Vietnamese woman told Metro Ahad.
She added that she now earned RM20,000 (S$7,800) to RM30,000 a month, which she got to keep for herself.
Ivy is reportedly among a growing number of freelance sex workers, mainly from Thailand, China and Vietnam, who pose as office executives to get a more upmarket clientele and to escape detection from the authorities.
