ABOUT US

Q&A

1.    Can the public access records of the HIV tests or other sexual health check-ups that are conducted by Teen’s Key?
No. The testing service we offer is anonymous. All personal data are confidential and will be handled extremely carefully.

 

2.    How do we reach out to our service targets?
We establish connections with them through regular outreach sessions online and to night clubs. We will then introduce them to different workshops and services like sexual health check-ups, which allows us to establish a relationship. By gradually gaining their trust, we hope to be able to support them as they face different problems in lives.


3.    What is compensated dating? What is PTGF?
Compensated dating is translated from the Japanese term Enjo-kōsai. It describes young women going on dates with men in exchange for money or gifts, but it does not necessarily involve sexual activities. However, in Hong Kong, it slowly evolves into a type of sexual service. Part-time girlfriend (PTGF) are girls who accompany other men to movies, dinner or other activities for money. It may not involve sexual services. 

 

4.    What are the statistics for Hong Kong girls involved in compensated dating?
There has always been insufficient research on Hong Kong female sex workers. The most recent research was one that was conducted in 2000-2002. It shows that there are about 20,000 to 100,000 female sex workers in Hong Kong, with 10,000 who are age 25 or below.
