From HSW and NetEase:

Shaanxi bath center provided sexual services to 13-year-old boy

Summary: Shaanxi Xianyang 13-year-old boy Peng Peng and his family recently went to a bath center bearing gift certificates/vouchers to bathe. While settling the bill, Peng Peng’s mother discovered an extra 198 yuan charge and the bath center claims this expense was the fee for the sexual services that Peng Peng received, which Peng Peng had also signed off on. In response, Peng Peng admitted to receiving sexual services and said the provider had provided the service even after having asked his age.

After arriving at the bath center, Mr. Meng’s wife told him that around 9 that morning, when she, Ms. Hu, and their two children were preparing to settle the bill to leave, the cashier said they have a 198 yuan massage bill for Peng Peng that was actually for sexual services.

Holding free bathing vouchers a friend had gifted them, Xianyang residents Ms. Chen and her family as well as her friend Ms. Hu’s and her family walked into the bath center for the first time. Yesterday [July 30] morning, when the two families were preparing to settle the bill and leave the bath center, they were instead told that Ms. Chen’s 13-year-old son Peng Peng had purchased “sexual services” provided by a masseuse. The bath center requested that Ms. Chen pay for Peng Peng’s 198 yuan bill. How could a bath center provide sexual services to a 13-year-old child? After the female masseuse replied that she had indeed provided “sexual services” to Peng Peng, angry Ms. Chen immediately chose to call the police.

Yesterday (July 30th) morning, this bath center issued a 198 RMB bill to Peng Peng's family, indicating that he had purchased "sexual services"

“After I heard, I simply couldn’t believe my own ears”

Yesterday around 12:20 noon, after Peng Peng and his father Mr. Meng together with Ms. Hu had given their statements to the police, they walked out of the Xianyang City Public Security Bureau Weichang Sub-District Xinxing Road police station. Peng Peng kept looking at the ground, and when what had happened that morning was brought up, Mr. Meng and Ms. Hu still expressed disbelief.

Mr. Meng says a friend had given him several bathing vouchers to the Kangzhan North Road Yalong Bay Bath Center. On July 30th when the weather was blistering hot, him and Ms. Hu’s family planned to bring their children to go bathing at the bath center. Because of work, around 6 in the afternoon, Ms. Chen and Ms. Hu went on ahead in taking Peng Peng and Ms. Hu’s 15-year-old daughter to the bath center, with Mr. Meng and Ms. Hu’s husband Mr. Liu arriving later.

That night, after the two families had bathed, they rested in the resting hall [a place in bath centers often with comfortable reclining seats that patrons can sleep in or watch movies]. Yesterday [July 31st] morning around 8, because of work, Mr. Meng and Mr. Liu left the bath center first. “I never imagined that not long after going to work, I would get a call from my wife saying our child had been ‘sexually serviced’. After I heard, I simply couldn’t believe my own ears, and ran to the bath center after putting down the phone,” Mr. Meng said.

“The masseuse admitted to providing sexual services to the child”

After arriving at the bath center, Mr. Meng’s wife told him that around 9 in the morning, as she and Ms. Hu were preparing to leave with the children, the cashier said they had a 198 yuan massage bill, purchased by Peng Peng, that actually was for sexual services.

Ms. Hu said yesterday afternoon: “Even though that’s what the bath center people said, we still think its unbelievable. How could a 13-year-old child have this kind of expense!? After being questioned, Peng Peng admitted that there was indeed a female masseuse who provided him sexual services and that the signature on the bill was his. Under our repeated demands, the bath center’s manager found the “#51 masseuse” that had provide Peng Peng sexual services. She also admitted it in front of us and the manager in a room, that she had engaged in providing sexual services to Peng Peng. We angrily asked her why she would give this kind of service to a child but she didn’t say anything and then left the room. At this time, the bath center offered to reduce the bill by 50%, but this clearly is not a issue of money.”

After Mr. Meng learned the whole story, he immediately rejected the bath center’s attempts to mediate the matter with a discount and instead chose to call the police. Peng Peng’s household registration document shows that he was born in 1999.

Peng Peng:

She took of her clothes after asking my age

Standing in front of the police station, although the Peng Peng before our eyes is nearly 1.8m tall, his childish appearance makes it clear that he is still a child. Yesterday, while Peng Peng related his experience of being “sexually serviced”, he felt extremely ashamed and also very regretful for not having been able to control himself at the time.

HSW [China Business newspaper]: When and with whom did you go to the Yalong Bay Bath Center?

Peng Peng: It was July 30th, before 6pm, my mother took me. Auntie Hu had arrived with her daughter first. After 8pm, my dad and auntie Hu’s husband also arrived.

HSW: How did it (being sexually serviced) happen?

Peng Peng: After arriving at the bath center, my mom and them were bathing in the women’s bath and I was alone in the men’s bath. Around 6:15pm, after I had finished bathing, I changed into a bathrobe and was about to go rest in the lounge. Just as I reached the door, a male service staff came over and asked if I wanted a massage. I thought this service was included in our bathing vouchers, so I said “yeah” and nodded my head. Then, the male service staff member took me to a room on the 4th floor. The room had a large bed, television, etc. I sat in there for a while and a female service staff member brought a bill in for me to sign. After I signed it, I felt something wasn’t right and wanted to go back down to the 3rd floor lounge but discovered that the 4th floor metal door to the 3rd floor couldn’t be pushed open.

HSW: So you then returned to the room? Then what happened?

Peng Peng: I could only go back to the room. After 2-3 minutes, a girl entered my room, and after saying a few things, she took off all of her clothes and lay on the bed. I couldn’t stop myself, took off my clothes as well. She put on a condom for me and had sexual relations with me. About 15 minutes later, I went downstairs to go back to the lounge.

HSW: When you guys were talking, did the girl ask ask your age?

Peng Peng: Before she had taken off her clothes, she asked my age and I said I was 13 years old. She heard, didn’t really say anything, and then began taking off her clothes.

HSW: When you saw your father after going to the lounge, did you tell him about this?

Peng Peng: I was afraid so I didn’t tell him what happened. It wasn’t until the next morning when settling the bill and after they had discovered the extra 198 yuan that I told them about this. After my mom found out, she was especially angry and had the manager bring out the the girl who had provided the sexual services and she admitted to having sexual relations with me. My mom and auntie Hu yelled at her while she said nothing.

HSW: Right now what do you think of what happened to you?

Peng Peng: I feel my self-control is really poor. It should have happened, and I’m really ashamed. I feel really embarrassed.

Yesterday (July 31st) afternoon, Yalong Bay Bath Center was still open and operating as usual.

Awesome, when I was 13, all I could do was peep at women bathing.

A 13-year-old boy’s virginity lost like that, what a pity!

Fuck, if this provider had just asked for a red envelope [to be paid in cash directly and privately], then everyone would’ve been happy, and she may have even earned a repeat customer!

Let’s not forget that he’s a male minor under 14-years-old. Our laws stipulate that the crime of rape can only be be applied against males, that women cannot be charged with rape. This should be changed. That way, the female service provider can be punished for rape…

jygsspgs [网易广东省广州市网友]:

Did he really say he was “13 years old” and not “18 years old”?

This child, how come you didn’t control yourself? 13 years old, 1.8m tall, I bet the prostitute simply didn’t believe he was really 13 years old, haha.

Fuck! When I was 13 years old, I was still playing with mud!

0poi8 [网易上海市网友]:

Everyone has overlooked that nothing has happened to the bath center, [which probably means] they have a lot of connections.

炎黄华夏 [网易北京市网友]:

“About 15 minutes later, I went downstairs to go back to the lounge.” 13 years old, his first time, and he can already last 15 minutes?

Minors not served. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
