Police in Bogor regency, West Java have arrested two people accused of sex trafficking, whose modus operandi allegedly involves deceiving clients into believing that their sex workers are virgins.

The suspects, identified as 28-year-old Y and 29-year-old GG, were arrested while they were taking a 20-year-old sex worker to serve a client at a hotel in Sentul on Tuesday. 

Police say the alleged pimps used various social media platforms to offer supposedly virgin sex workers to clients throughout Indonesia for a lot of money, even though not all the sex workers under their employ were actually virgins.

“They gave a drug [to the sex workers] that would make a woman, who is no longer a virgin, bleed when getting intimate with a client,” Bogor Regency Police Chief M Joni told reporters today, as quoted by Merdeka.

Clients were reportedly willing to pay top money for the supposedly virgin sex workers, as the police said the alleged pimps charged them IDR20 million (US$1,423) per session. After each transaction, Y and GG would collect IDR3 million as commission and gave the rest to the girls.

Police did not say how many sex workers were involved in the prostitution ring, but they did disclose that Y and GG trafficked girls from villages around Bogor.

Y and GG were charged with human trafficking and may face up to 15 years in prison each if convicted.

As for the virginity drugs, the police say that they are having experts look into them and where they were obtained from.

A woman’s virginity is highly valued in many Indonesian cultures, especially for marriage. While the police did not disclose much information about the drug, we were able to find products that promised similar results sold openly on several Indonesian e-commerce platforms.

One of our most notable finds was a herbal spray that claims to be able to restore a woman’s damaged hymen and make them bleed when they consummate their marriage with their husband. A passage in the product’s description read, after translation: “Are you getting married soon but you’re worried that you will disappoint your groom because you’re no longer a virgin? And are you worried that on your first night, no blood will come out of your genitalia?… Then we have a spray that is proven to regenerate the hymen fast without the need for surgery.”

Unsurprisingly, there was no indication that this spray, as well as other drugs that promise to restore women’s virginity that we found online, had received any approval from Indonesia’s Food and Drugs Monitoring Agency.

At any rate, in case anyone needs a refresher on the female anatomy, an intact hymen is not necessarily a sign of virginity and not all women bleed from their vagina the first time they have sex.
