“Hello! I am a 14-year-old girl who wants to earn a little extra money and wants to meet men,” read the ad, which was published by Sveriges Radio on a sex site.
The message listed costs included 500 kronor ($77) for masturbation, 1,000 kronor for oral sex, and 2,000 kronor for sexual intercourse. It continued by stating that the girl lived in Stockholm and had a metro system travel card, and was happy to travel anywhere in the city to meet her clients.
“I don’t have so much experience in all this so you’re going to have to help me. I am a brunette, happy, slim and kind. Get back to me :)” the message concluded.
Within three minutes, the ad drew its first response. By the end of a week when the ad was pulled from the internet, 50 people had called, 30 had sent text messages, and 30 had emailed asking for sex or at least more details.
In Sweden, it is against the law to have sex with anyone under the age of 15, but this didn’t appear to be a problem for many of the men who tried to contact Emma.
One man, who SR referred to as Anders, asked Emma if she could come to meet him when she needed to urinate. He added he was “very curious to watch” her while she urinated.
When contacted by the station for an anonymous interview, Anders said he thought the law should be changed and sex with underage people in Sweden should be legalized. He added that he wouldn’t have a problem with his own children having sex underage, provided they were not in danger.
