Shanghai student finds a novel and controversial way to fund travel
19 year old Chinese backpacker Ju Peng has come up with a novel way to fund her travels.
Instead of saving up, fundraising, or simply bugging her parents for cash, she has offered sex to any man willing to put her up in each city.
In the advertisement on Weibo, she says she is looking for “temporary boyfriends”. The only criteria is that they must be “good looking, under 30, taller than 1.75 metres and, of course, rich.”
The men will be expected to pay for Ju’s transport to their respective cities, and to cover all her expenses while she’s there.
The Shanghai student claims to have already explored all of eastern China in this manner, and that it is “sort of like hitchhiking – nothing to be ashamed of.”
She says the men who take her up on the offer will “have a whole night with me, my undivided attention, and a chance to show themselves off in the company of a truly beautiful girl.”
Form an orderly queue, chaps.
