It never happened. Instead, she ended up destitute and desperate when her husband abandoned her and her infant son a year later.
Now 35, she makes a living doing sex work, which at least provides her with financial independence. Speaking to FMT, researchers Janarthani Arumugam and G Selvi, under the auspices of Asia Pacific Network of Service Workers, said this was a textbook scenario for many sex workers in urban areas in the country, especially for unskilled and poorly educated women left poor by circumstances.
Feeling humiliated by the way her own family was treating her, she decided that she needed to depend on herself to provide for her .
Janarthani said Ros was positive about the future because now, she was educating her seven-year-old child and could care for her elderly mother. During the height of the Covid pandemic, Ros also reported being able to give back to society, giving donations wherever possible. The researchers said many sex workers, on top of their existing financial stress, were also severely affected by the movement control order MCO which made it difficult for them to meet clients, who were mostly migrant workers.
They are now mostly dependent on the government aid given to them from the economic stimulus packages.
For the aging sex workers, poverty is a harsh reality as their income falls as demand for their services goes down and younger girls take over their clientele. Their income has dwindled severely.

Thus, they avoid going for these sexual health screenings in government hospitals. Selvi also reported observing new trends among sex workers in Malaysia, where drug addiction was on the rise due to clients pressuring the girls to take drugs.
Women who were staying in the brothels were severely harassed by the police. The researchers added Sex place in malaysia women claimed police would even threaten them with violence if they do not admit that they are doing sex work, making it very difficult for them to negotiate with police. Most women were not aware of their rights during raids and would not even ask officers for their identification cards. Almost all sex work related activities are illegal under Section of the Penal Code, which makes soliciting for prostitution in any place and knowingly living on the earnings of prostitution illegal.
Under this law, it is an offence for a person who knows or has reason to believe that they have HIV to do any act which they know or have reason to believe is likely to lead to the spread of HIV.
