Female vlogger jailed for ‘eel-icit’ sex act
KUALA LUMPUR — A vlogger who shocked Chinese social media with a broadcast of her sexual act with a live eel in 2017 has been jailed one year and nine months for the obscenity.
Known by her nickname Qiqi, she was also fined 50,000 yuan by the Zhuji People’s Court in Zhejiang, reported China Press and Oriental Daily.
During an interview two years ago, Qiqi, 28, said she was keen on making a fast buck by hosting her own live shows online.
She decided to go “extreme” by offering pornographic content. She pocketed 91,000 yuan in just two months.
In March 2017, Qiqi set up a “VIP channel” after getting a request from a man that she should perform with an eel.
The two-minute broadcast was eventually widely shared on social media.
Riding on her overnight fame, Qiqi went on to use an illegal Chinese streaming platform called “Tiger” and continued broadcasting pornographic content, including her love-making with her boyfriend.
Local police arrested her in May that year.
