The Beijing Online News and Information Panel has accused 12 dating websites in Beijing of being a cover for prostitution and has ordered them to clean up their act: "The outrageous pimping content in some websites is very shocking." The 12 sites are loaded with similar information, including "service items, pricing and contact information." One of the websites, ostensibly a lonely-hearts dating service, contained a posting supposedly from a young woman describing herself as a "professional pleasure giver." The online panel, which has representatives from government, academia and the public, has ordered a complete purge of such information from the sites by June 1.
