"The online advertisements have become a new channel for spreading pornography," the statement said.

According to the statement, some illegal drugs, such as ecstasy and crystal meth, are also advertised as sex medicines, but are extremely harmful and can lead to higher rates of crime and juvenile delinquency, the China Daily reports.

The campaign, carried out by six government departments including the State Council's information Office, Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Health, aims to discourage the dissemination of such obscene information.

Websites found to have such content would face closure, the statement said.
