Beijing: A cult, which advocated sexual liberation, was smashed by the police in China's Xiamen city.

The cult leader lived with some of his women followers and had group sex activities with them.

Sex cult leader Chen Keyong even persuaded some women to bring teenage girls to his training courses, Shanghai Daily Monday quoted Xiamen police as saying.

Police acted on a tip-off that 54-year-old lived with some of his women followers and held group sex with them.

The women followers had given up their careers and even family life to follow Chen's 'green land health community'.

The followers paid Chen for training courses. A two-day training course cost 2,500 yuan ($368) while a session of 21 days was priced at 18,000 yuan.

The training sessions were to advocate free sex or group sex plus other meditation and wild dancing, police said.

Chen claimed that he was a disciple of well-known Indian cult leader Osho or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
