Blogger warned over post

A SHANGHAI blogger has been warned by police not to spread rumors online after she posted a photo of a price list of mistresses from local colleges.

The list was posted on the netizen's blog in June and later aroused much public concern after it was quoted on major Chinese websites such as and

On the list, girls willing to be mistresses from different colleges are tagged with prices ranging from 20,000 (US$2,900) to 500,000 yuan per year, depending on the quality of the colleges. Girls from prestigious universities such as Fudan and Jiaotong topped the list, while those from smaller colleges cost less.

There was also the agent's contact on the chart, who can introduce the mistresses to wealthy customers.

The original post has been ruled as in violation of local regulations on the Internet and of "rumor spreading and violating public order," reported recently.

The netizen, surnamed Guan, was warned by the police and is said to regret making the post.

The original post has been blocked, as has Guan's blog.

"Many things online are exaggerated and lack credibility," said Zhang Shengquan, an official at Shanghai Theatre Academy, a college on the list. "Some individual cases (of women willing to be mistresses) don't represent everyone."

"The prices according to university are a joke," said the agent who made the list yesterday, calling himself "Student Ding." "I made up that ranking to attract public attention and promote my business."

But Ding said he did work as an agent and the business was real. "But I usually negotiate with the client directly," he added.

"I have girls, but do you think you have enough money to afford them?" the man joked yesterday after Shanghai Daily inquired about the list.

He said he only delivers the list in person, and in secret, to drivers of expensive cars on the streets and had no idea about the pictures and the online post.

The agent added that he has not been in town recently and the business had been suspended for months.

"Maybe I will come back after the Expo," he said.
