China reprimands online companies for spread of sex video

A Chinese woman poses for photo outside the Uniqlo flagship store where a steamy video purportedly taken inside one of its fitting room showing a couple apparently having sex in Beijing, Thursday, July 16, 2015. While online searches for the Japanese clothing brand soared after the viral spread of the video, it has also drawn the concern of the police and China's highest web regulator who are investigating whether it was a vulgar marketing gimmick.

Online searches for the Japanese clothing brand soared this week after the viral spread of the video apparently showing a young couple having sex in the Chinese capital's flagship store.
