Chinese mobe sellers bundle smut to boost sales

Lewd = lucrative

Security for virtualized datacentres

Enterprising mobile resellers in eastern China's Anhui Province are bundling free porno clips in order to boost sales of the latest multimedia handsets. Xinhua, China's official news agency, reports that one of its staffers was offered mucky clips as a purchase incentive when he asked for a demo of the video playing feature of a Motorola E398 handset in a store in the city of Bengbu. Sadly the content of the clips remains a mystery.

Local police described the tactic as news to them. They also told Xinhua that it was "difficult to discover and collect adequate evidence for prosecuting such cases". Emm, isn't that what vice squads are supposed to do? Or perhaps police are turning a blind eye for fear of curtailing a trade with huge export potential. Bengbu smutmeisters would surely go down a storm at the next San Francisco Masturbate-a-thon provided trade barriers don't extend to the business of knocking one off, of course. ®
