Prostitution is illegal in China and police sometimes used means such as parading prostitutes in public as a deterrent.

Earlier this month, local media in the city of Dongguan in southern China's Guangdong province published pictures of two suspected prostitutes and two patrons who had been detained by police.

The handcuffed girls were shown walking barefoot, handcuffed and tethered by a rope around their waists.
