China expose on sex workers sparks backlash

1 post in this topic

BEIJING -- A salacious investigative report on state-run Chinese television, detailing widespread prostitution in the southern city of Dongguan, boomeranged on broadcaster CCTV on Monday as a vocal contingent of citizens rallied to the defense of the city’s sex workers and others wondered what political motives might lie behind the expose.

In the extensive segment aired Sunday night, CCTV reporters using hidden cameras visited several upscale hotels, including a Sheraton, and karaoke clubs in Dongguan.

Staff escorted the journalists to hotel rooms and ballrooms, where young women in revealing clothing would parade in for their choosing. Supervisors would explain the “tips” required for each woman; in some cases, the prostitutes wore small badges indicating their prices. The fees began at about $100.
