Is Sex Tour Chinese Woman a Prostitute?

What exactly is someone actually a prostitute? That may sound a strange question, but sometimes I find the whole terminology quite strange.

Let’s go back to what prostitution actually is. It is the sale of sex for money. However, isn’t that definition a little narrow? Or how can I put it…isn’t there more than one way to have sex for money?

This whole debate is the main reason I found this story coming out of China absolutely fascinating.

A Different Kind Of Travel Plan

A girl has posted that she wants to travel round the country seeing different men in every city she visits.

Ju Peng of Shanghai posted an ad to Chinese microblogging site Weibo (which is I think their main social media site) looking for “temporary boyfriends” who must be “good looking, under 30, taller than 1.75 metres tall and, of course, rich”.

Ju said: “They will fund my transport to their city and all my expenses while I am there and they need to be generous.

“In return, they get a whole night with me, my undivided attention, and a chance to show themselves off in the company of a truly beautiful girl.”

Ju says she has already gone all over eastern China using the controversial method and she intends to see the rest of the country, but admits she does not have enough money to fund it herself.
She said: “It is sort of like hitch-hiking. It’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

Differing Opinions

There are however people who are disagreeing fervently with her opinion. Other users consider what she is doing prostitution and have voiced their disapproval.

One Weibo user Hsin Tao said: “If she was taking cash we’d all know what to call her. This is a disgusting way to carry on.”

Now she may not be advertising on a site like Escort Norway but isn’t what she is doing selling her body for cash? No she isn’t advertising rates and receiving her cash on the bed at the start of a meeting but to make her trip around the country she is using the cash of rich ‘one day boyfriends’. I am struggling to see where the difference is to be fair.

Is This Right?

Now this brings us on to the debate as to whether she is actually doing anything wrong. We support the woman’s right to make her choice about what she does with her own body on this website; shouldn’t we be supporting her freedom of choice as well?

To be fair we do. The guys who are going to be ‘paying for her travel’ know the score. If they want to spend their hard earned cash like that then why the hell shouldn’t they?

A More Honest Approach

My only issue is that I feel people need to be more honest about what they are doing. If you ask this girl if she is a prostitute, then one suspects she would say no. However, what she is doing is pretty much the same thing.

Hey, you could even venture into the realms of asking whether a girl who let’s a lad think he has a chance with her to get a few drinks in a nightclub is doing the same thing? It may be a stretch, but you must get my point.

So what do you think? Is what this girl is doing prostitution or am I taking it too far? Let us know in the comments section or in the Escort Norway forum.
