Chinese sex workers are claiming to be Korean, Japanese or simply Asian in their online advertisements as clients give them a wide berth amid coronavirus fears.
One Chinese sex worker, who spoke to the Herald on the condition of anonymity, said she had edited her nationality from Chinese to Asian in two sex directory advertisements online.
“Business is way down and it’s never been this bad before,” said the Chinese sex worker, who advertises on newzealandgirls.co.nz
She is a New Zealand resident and has not been back to China for the last eight years, but says clients saw her as “no different to someone who has just arrived from Wuhan”.
“I don’t mention that I am Chinese any more and I offer a big discount, but clients are avoiding us like we are the virus,” she said.

She said: ‘We asked each other what we preferred during sex and so I did mention that I liked rough sex and also choking.
‘He did say that he liked rough sex as well but I don’t remember if he said anything about choking.’
