Any visitor to the village will notice small huts scattered around the area. The huts seem like simple living quarters.
However, they are actually huts belonging to young teen girls who entertain young boys at night. Most times they experiment with sex with the boys.
Nang Chan, one of the young women in the village, explains that entertaining boys in her hut allows her to choose a boy that she likes. This tradition gives the teen girls the option to choose a future husband.
The girls’ fathers typically build these huts for their daughters.
One father explains that he built the hut for his daughter because at night boys and girls like to talk. He says the noise the kids make annoy him and his wife. He belives that building the huts allow their kids to talk without bothering their elders.
According to journalist, Fiona Macgregor, talking usually means sexual encounters between the teens. She observed teen girls having different boys come over to their hut a few times a week.
During the day, boys and girls do not interact with each other. But when night falls, boys and girls come together. As the night goes on, teen boys will visit one of the huts.
Non-governmental organizations provide condoms to these girls. However, unwanted pregnancies obviously occur.
Modern influences like smartphones and access to pornography are causing changes to their tradition.
However, the Creyung clings to this tradition and continues to build huts.
