Hung daddy type: Craigslist arrives in Shanghai

Craiglist.org, the free community classified website that started in San Francisco, has started a Shanghai site.

It didn't take long for the personals section to get going. Take for, example, the ad titled 'masculine hung daddie type visiting looking for a buddy - 39 (with pic)'. Don't even think of clicking on that link if you are remotely distressed by photographs of penises.

If you'd prefer a slightly gentler introduction to Craigslist Shanghai, go straight to the Craigslist Shanghai home page.

If you're in Beijing and looking for seedy personals, try That's Beijing's website, which has ads like this one:

Out Call Massage Agency, which is advertising this foreigner-only take home hooker service.
