This scene is important because it shows just how unsure Holden is of such adult scenarios, and how even when he wants to seem mature, he cannot act anything other than immature in face of it.
After a long night of partying Holden returns to his hotel, where he meets a pimp named Maurice who sets him up with a prostitute named Sunny, $5 for a "go".Maurice and Sunny come by Holden's room later that night looking for another $5, but Holden refuses since he already paid. This earns him a beating, and in vain since Maurice steals his money anyways.
