Senior executive detained for making, spreading, profiting from porn videos featuring himself and over 100 women

The case is part of a campaign launched by the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications to fight against the spread of pornography.

A senior executive of a foreign enterprise in Shanghai together with six others have been detained for making, spreading and profiting from pornographic videos, police said on Thursday.

The case is part of a campaign launched by the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications to fight against the spread of pornography.

The 40-year-old man, surnamed Fan, has shot more than 100 pornographic videos featuring himself and different women he has dated since 2014, and profited more than 1 million yuan (US$156,845) by uploading these videos onto 91porn.com, a website whose servers are based in the United States, said police in Lishui, Zhejiang Province.

These women were not aware of themselves being shot as Fan put secret cameras at the places where he and the women had sex, police said.

Fan confessed to police that he made these videos out of hobby, not money, as he had a decent job and a happy family.

In 2016, Fan hired a man surnamed Zhou, who was a student of the University of California, to work as a middleman, helping him sell the videos and transfer the money into Fan’s bank account, police said.

Zhou said Fan picked him as the middleman because his IP address was based in the US, which made it easier to escape police hunt.

Zhou profited more than 100,000 yuan within about eight months, police said.

Lishui police started to investigate the website after a local cyber cafe owner reported to them that a customer was browsing a porn site earlier this year.

More than 22,000 pornography sites have been shut down this year in China while 1.75 million items were deleted in 390 cases, according to the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications.
