Shaming sanctions in China
Here's an interesting news story on a recent parade of prostitutes and some of their customers through the streets of Shenzhen staged by the local police. What's interesting about it, among other things, is the controversy it has stirred up.

Here's a longer article from the China Digital Times with many web links to Chinese press commentary.
