Fake child sex ad attracts many

There is a strong demand for children selling sex in Sweden, accoding to an investigation by Swedish Radio's P3 programme "Verkligheten" . Reporters placed a fake ad on the internet from a 14-year-old girl offering sex and received over a hundred answers in a week. 

"Hey Emma, I'd really like to meet you..."

The ad received 50 phone calls, 30 emails and many text messages. One caller was "Anders" who says that he has read the advert where a 14-year-old girl writes that she wants to earn extra money and wants to meet a man. The advert says that she will take SEK 1,000 for oral sex and full intercourse costs SEK 2,000.  
 
A reporter from the P3 programme pretended to be the girl and rang back "Anders". He said the fact that she is just 14 attracted him.
 
- You are not old enough and it's appealing.
 
- What is it that you want to do?
 
- What is it that I can get to do? Hehe
 
After the call, another reporter rang up the man.

- But a 14-year-old is just a child?

- Not necessarily, I'm not sure I agree with you there.

He does not think that 14-year-olds are children, and during the conversation, he says that he thinks child prostitution should be legal in Sweden. But he points out several times that he does not want to exploit anyone.
