Nineteen year-old student and avid backpacker Ju Peng set off a firestorm in her native China after posting an ad on-line suggesting that she'll have sex with benefactors who cover her travel expenses across the country. 

According to the ad, the young woman is looking for "temporary boyfriends" who must be "good looking, under 30, taller than 1.75 meters and, of course, rich."

Further, she demands from these men that "they will fund my transport to their city and all my expenses while I am there and they need to be generous."

The payoff, she says will be that "the 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, who claims to be from the city of Shanghai, has posted several pictures of her travels across the Middle Kingdom, but admits that she has been restricted only to the east of the country. Wanting to broaden her horizons to the rest of China, she now seems to have set her eyes on the Chinese west, but cannot fund such distances herself. 

While Peng equates the exchange as something similar to hitch-hiking, other netizens of China, which under current president Xi Jingping, is taking a stern moralistic stance against its more freewheeling citizenry, are taking a very strong reactionary position, calling Peng nothing less than a prostitute.

One Sina Weibo user witheringly commented: "If she was taking cash we'd all know what to call her. This is a disgusting way to carry on."

Allusions are being drawn that parallel the case of Guo Meimei, one of China's most famous web celebrities until revelations of her being little more than an Internet-savvy call girl and illegal gambling maven led to her sensational downfall earlier this year. 

It is not known if any have taken Peng up on her offer, or if authorities have moved to stop her.
