Spend A Night With A Porn Star – Chinese Tech Company Offers Bizarre New Year Bonus

A Chinese tech company has raised eyebrows in the corporate circle for offering a night with a porn star for their best employee.

As the Chinese New Year arrives today, companies have begun to announce annual bonuses and perks for their hardworking employees. While majority of them have stuck to mainstream offers like latest iPhones, foreign trips and even swanky cars, Chinese internet security firm Qihoo 360 is reportedly planning to give a night with a porn star as an annual bonus to some of its employees.

Revealed in the report named “2015 Annual Meeting of the Internet company gift list (confidential),” Qihoo 360 is offering one night with Japanese porn star “Julia” as one of its Special Grade Awards.

It is a common practice in Chinese companies not just to one-up each other in offering the most exotic of bonuses, but also to poach employees who are performing well. It is not uncommon in extremely competitive Chinese market to offer bumper bonuses and enviable benefits to keep its cream of crop from leaving. But Qihoo 360 seems to have one-upped the ante, reported Metro. The internet security firm allegedly offered its “Employee of the Month” with a night with a famous porn star.

One of the employees of Qihoo 360 posted a photo of the monthly awards for successful employees, listing a Porsche 911 and a five-day trip to Bali, Indonesia as well as the event night with Julia Kyoka, a popular Japanese porn star. The awards are intended to celebrate successful employees ahead of the Chinese New Year, set for Feb. 19.

However, following an uproar on the social media, the company seems to have withdrawn the particular perk. The company strongly maintains that the perk is nothing but the work of pranksters. The statement released dispelling the rumors.

“It appears someone manufactured a false document of what our bonuses are involving an adult entertainment actress. No such document ever existed. It’s an entirely false Internet rumor, and we can confirm it is patently false.”

Even though the news might pan out to be just a rumor or a hoax, Qihoo 360 is no stranger to splurging. Earlier this month, the company allegedly spent $17 million for purchasing the rights to the domain 360.com, the highest figure ever paid for an Internet domain.

The Chinese New Year, dubbed the “Year of the Sheep” will be celebrated today. According to astrological experts, the year may not be good from an economic perspective.
