Young female writer Muzimei caused a lot of debate on the Chinese Web and in the media after publishing her erotic diary online. Although the original Web-log was removed after all the negative publicity, it had by then already appeared on several other websites. Her writings were published around the same time, but the book was officially banned by Chinese officials.
