Q: Prostitution in Wenzhou?

During my recent visit there, my QQ was bombarded with messages from call girls telling me to use a 9 digit number for their services.  Whether I was relaxing in my hotel room or shopping in the mall, the incoming messages continued.  I have never before seen this.  It wasn't a phone number or qq number, but some kind of unique ID number.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Is this unique to Wenzhou?  I just thought it was kind of curious.

Sanya is bad for that too.  we dont notice as much because were foreigners so the hookers generally try to stay away from us, But chinese get it bad. Maybe whatever resource they used to find you didnt let them know you were a foreigner.

Simply disable your QQ location services after cleaning the previous cache for 'Look around' if you want to avoid.

The prostitution industry has been out of business for now three months or so, since the new government needed to put on its little show and probably purge some opponents on the way.

Now its coming to an end (the crackdown stunts, not the prostitution indeed), probably girls are starting to come back from the village, but there's still a few weeks of shortfalls to be earned, expect advertising to be aggressive for a while.

After a little research, I see that Wenzhou is known for it's "ladies of the night", so the 9 digit code must apply to some local system they use to buy the services.  They are definitely automated messages, so this is a high production system.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
