A prostitute from Belgrade writes a popular blog using a pseudonym Sexymaja.

In summer of 2005 a sensation struck Serbian social networks – a blog Maja in a brothel appeared and quickly became the most followed content on the web. The author of this online diary used pseudonym Sexymaja and presented herself as a young prostitute from Belgrade. She kept on amusing the readers with funny descriptions of her clients thus became one of the most popular online personalities. However, she mysteriously disappeared from the web, so the rumors went on to describe her as a fake character. The blog community puts the blame on an alleged ghost writer to be behind all of it. He does not deny it but he opens the door for the real character, who was the inspiration for him from the beginning.
