Ju Peng, 19, posted an ad on Weibo saying those who forked out for her backpacking expenses to different cities and were ‘generous’ would get to spend the whole night with her. 

The Shanghai student says she’s looking for “temporary boyfriends”.

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

No old, ugly and short blokes allowed, either, with the suitors needing to be “good looking, under 30, taller than 1.75 metres and, of course, rich. 

“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.”

Peng’s ad says she’s been well looked after throughout eastern China and is keen to see the rest of the country the same way. 

Clearly, criticism has come from many quarters about the similarities to Peng’s travel funding technique and prostitution. 

However, Peng defends her decision: “It is sort of like hitch-hiking. It’s nothing to be ashamed of’.”
