'We wanted to try out sex and ended up pregnant'

MALACCA - Sixteen-year-old teenage mum Salina (not her real name) who had sex with her neighbour wasn't even aware that she was pregnant after an intimate session at a secondary jungle in Kuala Pilah, Negri Sembilan, last year.

Salina said she and the boy had planned to go to a fast-food restaurant but ended up in the jungle "to try out sex".

"I never knew that one could get pregnant on her first time, but I was wrong. Now, I am expecting a baby," she said yesterday.

Salina said she regretted her action.

"I admit that I was partly to be blamed," she said.

"My urge to try out sex made me coerce my friend into taking us somewhere secluded to do it."

She said it was also the reason why she stopped her family from lodging a police report against the boy.

"He has promised to marry me once I reach the right age," she said, adding that her family too wanted her to keep the child.

Another teenager said she got pregnant "accidentally" after watching a pornographic video with a classmate.

"We ended up copying the act," she said.

The 17-year-old said she and her friend had gone to stall for a drink when the boy showed her the video clip.

"Soon after, we left to a find a suitable place to do it," she said.

"We did it in an unusual place under a staircase of a flat."

She quit school when she learned that she was pregnant. "I am now waiting for my friend to marry me once we are capable of managing a family."
