The Final Word On The Sufiah Yusof Saga: Eff Off.

In News on April 7, 2008 at 2:13 pm

Well, I thought I’d forget about posting another long and unnecessarily draggy story on the subject of Sufiah, but I’ll make an exception to this case. Mainly because in an interview posted up on the Star, Sufiah has finally had her say. And what did she say? Well, basically she says to leave her alone, and that she’s happy doing what she does.

Take that, you condescending Malaysian government people who want to offer “financial help”. Personally, I think she has more guts to stand up for herself than most people expected her to. She’s not some damsel in distress, nor is she someone to be pitied upon, or some helpless victim of the sex trade. She is woman. And she does whatever the fuck she wants.

This, from The Star:

Maths prodigy Sufiah Yusof, who is now working as a prostitute, claims she is living the life she wants without any regrets.

She does not think being an escort is sleazy and terrible and says her clients treat her like a princess in an interview with British tabloid News of the World.

“People think escorting is sleazy and terrible but I don’t see it like that,” she said in a no-holds-barred interview that was published with pictures of her in skimpy attire and sexy poses.

“I left that night feeling totally elated having an amazing time with £250 (RM1,600) in my purse,” said Sufiah.

She has built a base of regular clients and saw between five and 10 men each week.

“I don’t believe my education had been wasted – in fact, I usually take problem sheets with me to solve before appointments,” she said.

Sufiah claimed she could earn more than £1,000 (RM6,400) a night by having dinner and staying over with a client.

“Now, I wonder if I could go back to a normal relationship, where you watch EastEnders and have boring sex. I’ve gotten used to being treated like a princess,” she said.

She also does not want much to do with her parents. Describing the relationship as estranged, she said she was in contact with them occasionally but “couldn’t speculate what they will think of my new life.”

“I have never felt so confident about my body and I’ve had some of the best sex of my life,” she said.

I just love that final quote.

  1. that is until if she suddenly had an accident, ill
    or inevitably grow old
    & guys will run away to the next fresh, young girls
    there are younger girls
    how confident will she be then

    plus what if she has a son one day

    Selling my body is not the way to feel confident
    It’s the guys having the upper hand – he totally could dump you anytime
    It’s a mirage, ladies

  2. Well, from how the article reads, she’s fully well aware that she’s being used. In fact, she’s using them more than they are using her. It’s her life, her decision.

  3. nisa, you’re making the assumption that her happiness and fulfillment in life are similar to what yours and society in general are. It isn’t necessarily so.

    she is a smart woman. she is aware of the consequences of her choices and the risks. she is not breaking the law. why should we feel we need to interfere?
