No stripping allowed at funerals

Authorities in China are stopping strippers from performing at funerals.

It comes after five striptease troupe bosses were arrested in east China’s Jiangsu Province after “obscene performances” at a funeral, according to the Xinhua agency.

The arrests, in Donghai county, followed striptease acts at a farmer’s funeral, the agency said.

Two hundred people were said to have attended the event.

A source said: “Striptease used to be a common practice at funerals in Donghai’s rural areas to allure viewers.

“Local villagers believe that the more people who attend the funeral, the more the dead person is honoured.”

Residents are encouraged to report “funeral misdeeds” on a hotline, earning a reward for information.
