Chinese online website Jiedaibao, a platform where individuals, often friends and acquaintances, lend or borrow money is at the center of a massive leak of nude pictures of female borrowers. Lenders regularly require women, mostly college students, in China to provide naked pictures of themselves, including their identification in the photos, to secure loans. Jiedaibao said in a statement that using nude photos as the guarantee has been a private agreement between the lender and the borrower. In exchange for the nude pictures, the women received higher loans, from two to five times the normal amount. The understanding in these private agreements was that the lender would only release these photos and videos to the borrowers’ families if they failed to repay the loans on time. In some cases, lenders asked for videos of the women masturbating. Recently, someone leaked over 1,000 of the women online. The company has reported the leak to the police. But names, dates of birth, address and identification numbers of the women could be seen in the photos and videos. The zip file of the images circulating the Internet have various names, including file names that indicated whether the woman would be willing to repay loans with sex. The majority of the borrowers are young women born between 1993 to 1997, according to reports. So far, no exact number has been reported, but reports suggest more than 1,000 woman sent naked photos of themselves to lenders on Jiedaibao.

China is serious about porn. Like put you in jail serious. Aspiring porn star Sherry Gun, 21, was arrested, charged with spreading obscene content, and sent to prison for four years (along with three others), after her video “Foursome in Chengdu” went viral. After the video posted in March of last year, the search term “foursome in Chengdu” quickly became a top search term on various search engines in China. The video was also widely shared on Chinese social media platforms, like WeChat and QQ. Chinese media reported that Sherry was desperate for fame and fortune and wanted to attract more people to her online streaming business. Sherry worked as an online host, who live-streamed her daily life through social media websites and mobile apps to some 40,000 fans. She also produced 31 videos, and reportedly had earned 75,000 yuan ($14,000). “Foursome in Chengdu” quickly caught the attention of authorities at the Mianzhu Public Security Bureau, and they set up a team to investigate the case, easily finding Sherry. In addition to her four year prison sentence, Sherry was fined 100,000 yuan ($14,521), and her computer and mobile phone were confiscated.
According to the Chinese Criminal Law, anyone who “produces, duplicates, publishes, sells or disseminates pornographic materials” shall be sentences to fixed-term imprisonment of no more than three years. In “serious” cases, which apparently Sherry’s was, a person could be sentenced to no more than 10 years in prison.

According to a number of rough translations from Google Translate of Spanish-language reports, Maria Eugnia Suarez, also known as “China,” 24, was the victim of a hack of her photos from her personal devices, leaked to the Internet through WhatsApp. If you aren’t from Argentina, then you’d likely have little reason to know Maria, an actress and model popular in the country. Initial reports were that the pictures were Photoshop fakes. Maria has refused to confirm or deny their authenticity. But slowly, acceptance grew as people combed over the pictures, Maria’s distinct tattoos and her previous pictures to conclude they are more likely than not Maria in the buff.

According to Havoscope, the world’s oldest profession is booming worldwide. Hookers hauled in $186 billion in worldwide revenue. Their data is based on estimated market values from countries where prostitution revenue is available and used public health programs and law enforcement initiatives to develop the figure. They also ranked the countries who spend the most per capita on prostitutes. We figured some Asian nation would top the list, cause “me love you long time.” But no, it was European countries topping the hooker spending charts, with a few Asian countries mixed in. Spain spends the most on prostitutes per person, with a total expenditure of $26.5 billion. Damn, Spain. Damn! In terms of the number of workers, however, China blows other countries away with over 5 million workers, followed by India with 3 million and the United States with 1 million. China also claims more than a third of the world’s prostitution revenue at $73 billion. The large populations of those countries, of course, balance out the excessive whoring of some of their citizens, in the per capita calculations. Here were the top ten countries in the world:
1. Spain $372
2. Switzerland $291
3. South Korea $165
4. Germany $151
5. Japan $128
6. Bulgaria $122
7. Thailand $63
8. Taiwan $53
9. Ireland $45
10. Israel $42

There are many stories of accidental porn flicks slipping into school or business presentations, movies on buses and the occasional porn aired during a television program. The porn is quickly removed, someone is briefly embarrassed (depending on the flick), viewers are shocked and apologies come out quickly for the unfortunate but limited display. Some guy in China topped them all. The person in charge of the running the giant LED that sits on a building above the KFC in a public downtown square apparently had porn on his computer, and accidentally feed it live to the LED screen for 20 minutes.
Shocked shoppers and parents complained to the police and city authorities. They rushed home, and some felt compelled to lock themselves in their bathroom. The local public security bureau issued apologies for the porn and blamed human error.

You probably didn’t notice, but Wenxia Yu of China was crowned Miss World on Saturday. Miss World is a pageant popular in other countries, not so much in the U.S. Yu’s win has created a controversy, for a couple reasons. First, the pageant was held in China. Second, Yu is the second winner from China in the contest’s 61-year history, after Zhang Zilin’s win in 2007. And both Yu and Zilan won their titles when China hosted the awards. Perhaps, many speculate, there was some home-town favoritism (surprise).
But some are really offended by it. “I was not surprised at all to see that the winner of the pageant was Miss China given that it was held in a Chinese city with Chinese hosts and a huge group of screaming Chinese fans that erupted into applause every time she was mentioned,” one commenter wrote on a Huffington Post article announcing the winner. He also added the hashtags: “#Rigged #Fake #SecondPlaceOlympicsRebound”. And After Yu’s win, the Miss World Facebook page was hit with commenters accusing judges of pandering to politics. “MWO you sold miss world for the Chinese! They poured MILLIONS into the contest, so it is not very surpris[ing] that they won,” wrote one commenter among hundreds slamming Yu as a “fake” winner.
Sore losers? Maybe. Maybe it’s was rigged. It wouldn’t be the first time…it won’t be the lastChina, Miss World Pageant, Rigged, Wenxia Yu
