Unable to convince his girlfriend to have sex with him more than once a month, Alistair Pow Jun Hao identified a friend's contact on Facebook to help make up the difference.
He befriended the girl, then 13, on the social networking site and propositioned her while the two were watching a movie together at his home last year - trying to persuade her by getting his girlfriend to pose over the phone as a male friend threatening to break off his "friendship" with Pow if the victim refused.
Pow, 19, was sentenced on Monday to 24 months' probation by a district court and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service, after pleading guilty to two counts of sexually penetrating the minor and another young girl.
