Some girls are sold only to be khui-ed. They are not sold to a brothel owner who, after an initial high price, will keep on employing the girl as a 'regular' prostitute. This can happen in individual cases, when parents agree with someone to let their daughter spend a week in exchange for some money or when girls decide by themselves to be khui-ed, as the money offered is often way above their imagination. A Vietnamese girl in Ratanakiri recounted how, when she was working in a coffee shop, she was asked to be khui-ed:

"There was a customer who came to ask me whether I was a virgin. When I told him that I was still a virgin, he asked me to sleep with him. He would give me $600. I thought that $600 was a lot of money. It's over one domlung´Ç¬! So I agreed with him."

However, those girls who are sold to be khui-ed only often do end up as a regular' commercial sex worker in a brothel or dancing hall. For those who are deceived and completely left without any money, there is no other way to get some money to go back home. For others once khui-ed already, prostitution is an attractive option for earning easy money.

Although some girls are (made) aware of their worth as a virgin and therefore agree to be khui-ed, many are deceived and do not get anything for losing their virginity. There are more or less specialized middlemen or -women who recruit virgin girls in Vietnam for individual customers or brothel owners. A Kampuchea Krom girl told how she, four years ago, was brought to Phnom Penh by a woman from her village in order to be khui-ed. Every one or two months, this woman brought virgin girls from Vietnam to Cambodia and offered them to soldiers or other (rich) men who want virgin girls. The girls are forced to stay with the man for one week in a hotel. The woman receives $350, of which the girls do not even receive a small share. After having been khui-ed, the girls have often no other possibility but work as a prostitute in a regular bar or brothel, in order to save some money to go back home.

Also some brothel owners are, either directly themselves or through certain mediators, interested in recruiting young virgin girls. Some will order mediating recruiters to find virgin girls; others pay huge amounts to mediators who come to offer virgin girls. A Vietnamese girl in a massage place in Kompong Som recalled how she was deceived when she was 17 years old to be khui-ed in a brothel in Phnom Penh:

"A woman told me that if I could work in Cambodia as a cook for other people and earn one chi of gold a month. So I followed her and the man who was working with her. They ordered me not to tell my mother, because she would not allow me to go with them and then I would not get a good job in Cambodia. When we came in Phnom Penh, they brought me to a shop. I saw many prostitutes of my age. I saw that the meebon gave 7 chi to the people who brought me there and then they left. Later the meebon told me that these people brought me to his shop to sell me for seven chi to khui me. The same day I was khui-ed. I first didn't agree, but they hit me and they used electricity shocks to force me."

The foundation of Cambodia-Hanoi government is selling young girls as part of their GDP. There are sick Vietnamese and Chinese brothels owner out there in Cambodia and it's shame that they use Cambodia as a whore house.

"The Problem of Prostitution in Cambodia: Is it normal for the Khmer society?" Recently, the son of Former PM Son Sann, Son Soubert who clearly told to Radio Free Asia in Khmer that Yuon criminals stir up all troubles in Khmer society such as drug trafficking, prostitution and many other criminal acts. Yuon criminals in Cambodia are unmentionable and unbelievable hot topics; it's really hotspot for all Yuon criminals enjoying themselves with the Freedom and Peace, which UNTAC's troops brought into Cambodia since 1991 after the Paris Peace Agreement. Yuon criminals are nearly out of control/touch. What about Yuon criminals in Cambodia? It's really out of control/touch at the moment.
