This is a side of life the Burmese military junta might prefer you did not see: girls who appear to be 13 and 14 years old paraded in front of customers at a nightclub where a beauty contest thinly veils child prostitution. Tottering in stiletto heels and miniskirts, young teenage girls criss-crossed the dance-floor as part of a nightly "modelling" show at the Asia Entertainment City nightclub on a recent evening in Rangoon. Some girls stared at the floor while others tugged self-consciously on short hemlines, stretching the flimsy material a few centimetres longer as they catwalked awkwardly to the accompaniment of blasting hip-hop music. Watching these young entertainers of the "Cherry-Sexy Girls" model groups were a few male customers, and a far larger crowd of Burmese sex workers, mostly in their late teens and early 20s, who sat at low tables in the darkness of the club. Escorting several girls to a nearby table of young men, a waiter said the show was not so much modelling as marketing.

If she broke that promise, the company said, she could be fired, without compensation.
An Instagram account where beautiful Israeli soldiers show off their sexy snaps has attracted tens of thousands of followers. All Jewish Israeli citizens are required to complete national service at the age of 18 — including girls, who must serve a minimum of two years in the armed forces.

Pictures of the women, mostly in their late teens and early twenties, posing in their military uniform are juxtaposed with their bikini pictures on the Instagram page dedicated to attractive female Israeli soldiers.
