In numerous reports, the “paid escort of male models” was accused of destroying the family, corrupting the social atmosphere, and at the same time causing emotional and economic disputes of “three wrong views”.

The judgment of the Xiangtan County People’s Court shows that Zhou, who was born in 1972, is a businesswoman. In early April 2021, when Zhou was consuming the “No. 3 Entertainment” KTV in downtown Changsha, he knew Hu, a paid escort practitioner of the KTV. After several consumptions, they developed good feelings for each other, and they started living together in late April. And Xiangtan County native Hu was born in 1995, Zhou is more than 20 years older than Hu. It can be said that Zhou and Hu spend a lot of money: for example, on April 18, 2021, when Zhou went to the mall, it cost 6,297 yuan to buy clothes for Hu at Dijaya, 3,600 yuan to buy Versace belts, and 12,450 yuan to buy shoes at LV. To sum up, the one-time consumption amounted to 22,347 yuan. It is normal for Hu to spend 10,000 to 20,000 yuan by booking a room at “No. 3 Entertainment” KTV. On June 15, 2021, “No. 3 Entertainment” KTV was investigated and dealt with by the public security organs for being involved in pornography, and was later closed.
In January 2022, Zhou sued Hu, claiming that she accidentally found out that Hu was married and that she was in a relationship with Hu for the purpose of marriage, but Hu used this to defraud her own property and conceal her marriage. Facts lead to misunderstandings.
Hu argued that Zhou fabricated the plot of his relationship with him for the purpose of marriage. The two parties knew each other from “No. 3 Entertainment” to accompany KTV for a fee. He was the male model of the KTV. Consumption on KTV of “No.3 Entertainment”. Hu said that Zhou maintained a relationship between men and women because he was young, handsome and understanding, not for the purpose of marriage. Zhou also contacted his wife Chen many times, and repeatedly revealed that he knew that Chen was his wife.
The Xiangtan County People’s Court held that the two met at a pornographic site. During the trial, Hu was outspoken about the purpose of interacting with Zhou, saying, “We have always treated Zhou as a client, and asked Zhou to give him money. Do your own performance”, and Zhou is only looking for stimulation, relieve loneliness, and get what they need from each other. Although this kind of deformed relationship originated from places of pleasure and illegal sex trade has been able to exist, it is more of a show of affection than true feelings for each other. Hu used his body and dignity as the price to win Zhou’s favor, and Zhou used money To make up for the huge age difference similar to mother and child, in exchange for Hu’s attention and short-term companionship, they are actually in a state of “nurturing and being supported” in popular terms. Relationships should be evaluated negatively.
On April 24, 2022, the Xiangtan County Court made a first-instance judgment: within 10 days after the judgment came into effect, Hu returned Zhou’s unjust enrichment of 70,000 yuan and rejected Zhou’s other claims.
If male model escorts are involved in sex trafficking, organizers should be convicted of organizing prostitution
Why are paid escorts so rampant? Is it difficult to investigate and deal with a large number of erotic edge ball situations?
In this regard, Wang Fu, a famous criminal defense lawyer, said that the prostitutes in the crime of organizing prostitution and assisting in the crime of assisting in organizing prostitution stipulated in Article 358 of the Criminal Law of our country include not only women but also men. Persons in prostitution under Articles 66 and 67 also include men. Prostitution is a sexual act with an unfixed object in exchange for a price or an agreement to accept a price in exchange for material rewards (money, gifts, etc.). If organized prostitution occurs in the paid escort, the organizer and those assisting the organizer can be investigated for criminal responsibility in accordance with the Criminal Law, and the prostitutes are punished in accordance with the Public Security Administration Punishment Law; if the paid escort does not have prostitution, the Investigate and punish in accordance with the “Regulations on the Administration of Entertainment Places”.
He Xiaodian, the former vice president of the Hunan Provincial Criminal Law Research Association and a well-known lawyer, believes that paid escort, understood from a broad and broad perspective, includes all activities such as voluntary provision of paid companionship, care, service, and service to others, including legal professional services, including escorts for illegal and even criminals. Paid escort in a narrow sense is used in a pejorative sense in certain occasions, including escort behaviors accompanied by prostitution, drug addiction, gambling, illegal cohabitation and other illegal and criminal acts provided for a specific or unspecified person for a fee. Among them, sexual services, including sexual relations or sexually-related behaviors that are voluntarily and paid to an unspecified person based on human emotions, are actually prostitution. The organizer and assisting the organizer constitute the crime of organizing prostitution and assisting the organization of prostitution.
In addition, Wang Fu said, “According to Article 24 of the Regulations on the Administration of Entertainment Places, entertainment places are not allowed to recruit minors. Some online posts reported that there were places that recruited high school students and even minors to participate. The above content Although there is no confirmation from the public security organs, if there is a solicitation of middle school students and minors to participate in paid escort services, it may not only violate the “Labor Law” and the “Regulations”, but also violate the morality and ethics of the middle school students and minors. It will cause adverse effects and is not conducive to their healthy growth; if the escort is under the age of 14, the escort may also be suspected of child molestation.”

Wang Fu said that when paid escorts exist in entertainment venues, the escorts, whether male or female, often get along with the escorts in an ambiguous situation.

There may also be high-priced selling of fake wine or high consumption by deceiving, enticing, and forcing consumers.

If the fake wine is poisonous and harmful and it is sold knowingly that the fake wine is mixed with toxic and harmful non-food raw materials, it may be suspected of the crime of selling poisonous and harmful food. If consumers are forced to consume by means of violence, coercion, etc., and the circumstances are serious, they may be suspected of the crime of forced transaction.
