Police In China Arrest 15 In Connection With Breastfeeding Prostitution Ring

Police in Beijing have arrested 15 people for their involvement with a prostitution ring "which used websites to connect young mothers with men who paid to be breastfed by them," according to The South China Morning Post.

Details released by The Ministry of Public Security reportedly identified two gangs that had been operating a number of websites offering breastfeeding services.

Members of the Beijing police began investigating after it was reported by The Beijing News that pregnant mothers had been offering to breastfeed interested parties for a fee.

At the time of arrest, more than 200 people had paid for the services offered. The women and their clients allegedly used instant messaging services to exchange pictures and discuss pricing.

When investigated by The Beijing News, it was reportedly discovered that a number of the women breastfed their babies less or not at all, in order to focus on paying clients.
