The laws of Hong Kong currently allow classified ads for prostitution and websites that allow clients to make appointments with prostitutes.

CNN reported that students, often teenagers, sell sex so they can buy consumer goods such as cell phones and clothes. Hong Kong social worker Chiu Tak-Choi said that most girls who engage in compensated dating don't view themselves as prostitutes.

Night club workers: The term nightclub in Hong Kong is being driven from general use for being used as a euphemism for hostess clubs.

Hostesses receive a basic retainer and commission for having customers buy expensive drinks, customers pay the club for the privilege of taking the girls out by buying out the girls "time", whatever comes after being a matter of negotiation between the customer and hostess.

A similar format can be found at some karaoke lounges with private rooms.

However, most of the commercial sex worker industry consists of women working in small, usually one room apartments, usually referred to as "one-woman brothels", the equivalent of the "walk-up brothel" in the United Kingdom.

They advertise for clients through the Internet and local classifieds.

So, one can choose to opt either of these two modes of communication.

However, it is always important for a person that he maintains absolute safety and precaution in such matters.

In more down-market accommodation the concierge may ask customers if they require company.
