Ris Low reacts to claims that she is sexually active

Ever since news broke on earlier this week that Ris Low has been appointed as the spokesperson for condom brand, Espire, she's been accused of having a sexually active sex life, reported Lianhe Wanbao. 

However, she clarified that she's very particular when sex is involved. Since her Mr. Right is not in her life yet, naturally, she is still a virgin, the ex-beauty queen told the Chinese newspaper.

According to the same publication, her rationale for accepting the 4-figure endorsement was to spread the message of practising safe sex habits.

Ris, who was once an intern practitioner in a clinic, said she witnessed a 9-year-old child accompanied by her parents opting for the HIV test. On another occasion, a 15-year-old teenager had contracted AIDS because of his promiscuity.

Ris said: "While we can't stop teenagers from engaging in sexual activities, we can educate them the proper way to protect themselves."

Although she is inexperienced with the usage of a condom, she did her own research and tests to ensure the reliability of the product.

According to Lianhe Wanbao, she filled about 500ml of water into a condom to test its durability. She apparently also wore the condom over her hands, rubbed it vigorously, only to feel a warm sensation.

my paper reported that Ris is currently working as a part-time as a clinic assistant at an Aids clinic to hone her skills as condom ambassador. She spends three days a week counselling patients and teaching them how to use condoms correctly.

She told RazorTV in a live interview: "I want to tell them (youths) to be responsible for their own actions and to know that unwanted pregnancies can be prevented, and safe sex can be pleasurable as well."

Despite her infamy of poor English and credit card frauds, does the former Miss Singapore World think herself worthy?

Ris had this to say: "I think I'm very much qualified becos I can reach out to the youths out there.

"Being a youth myself, there's no age gap and I can relate to them easily."

When RazorTV asked about whether she thinks she is the suitable candidate for the role, Ris said: "I think this has nothing to do with my credit card fraud and ethics because, afterall, you grow up from what you've done wrong and you change. So I don't think people should penalise me for that."

She added that: "I am responsible for my own actions. I did my probation and served the terms.

"I think I am responsible and matured enough to take up this role as ambassador."

Although, she made the cover of the December issue of FHM, and is now Espire's spokesperson, Ris rejects the idea of being a "sex" symbol, reported Lianhe Wanbao.

She's a pathological liar. So how to believe her when she says she's still a virgin. This reminds me of the time that Britney Spears said the same thing.

She'll be digging her own grave if she's exposed as a liar. If she didn't, well done! Honesty is the best policy and the easiest to get ur message across. Good luck to her!

Sorry Superidiot - SISIR had long been SOLD ! Donkey Years back. Its early Chairman had knocked off to the otherside of Earth already - Long before 2012 !
There is no more SISIR to do the JOB. GOOD LUCK to you for trusting with SISIR !

The way she spoke in the recent AD, feel like how the judge chose her for a crown. Judges are really to blame too. Ah...

It there anything wrong with a 19 year old being sexually active? We have been reading news of 14 years old having multiple sex partners...Is it just because she is Ris Low? How many times must we continue to condemn a person...Is this typical of we, Singaporeans? Sad...

What happens to the "yellow ribbon" ppl a second chance.
People makes mistakes. Some are fortunate to get away with it by saying "it's an honest mistake" whilst others have to carry the burden of guilt with them. Lets give her the opportunity to make amends by helping the youths...Lets be forgiving so that those who have made mistakes in the past can find peace and hopefully able to change to be useful person to themselves, families, friends and above all the nation. Good luck, Ris.

She is a liar in many past activities.

So, do u think she is telling the truth in her new promotion products?

All her claims must be verified.
Seems that SISIR of Singapore is useless!
Singapore government spends hundreds of million to setup a laboratory to conduct, verify and certify the quality of product safety before allowing them to be used in Singapore.
Now, a young lass could do the same thing with 500ml of water!
So, what is the use of SISIR?
Who is better?

Firstly what would a Virgin know about condoms except perhaps that it taste good.

Second this is Boomz Ris Low the infamous liar, she says she is a virgin can you believe her?
Personally i dont give a damn if she is virgin or a well serviced women, she just gives Singapore a bad name. If the condom firm thinks it can sell condoms because of her well good luck to them you wont get me to buy because of this.
