Knowing Chinese makes you sexy, rich and happy :)

Chinabounder teaches us: Be Controversial

July 23, 2008 – 6:18 am

Who remembers Chinabounder, the sex blogger from Shanghai? He wrote about how easy it is to seduce Chinese women and bring them to the bedroom and play with them. It has been a while since the last time You could hear a story about him, now he seems to be back. An article in the British newspaper the Guardian features some news about this guy who claims he has graduated from Cambridge University. In this article the real name of Chinabounder is revealed to the public for the first time: David Marriott.

His sexstory blog called Sex and Shanghai had cause some disturbance among traditional Chinese people two years ago, when he wrote about his sexual adventures with Chinese women in the western oriented Chinese city Shanghai. For others he was just entertainment, but then his blog at some point became private and only invited people could see it. From that point most people forgot about him and his adventures and now, two years later, Chinabounder writes a new book called 50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great.

While the topic of his original blog was quite interesting and I enjoyed reading it, his writing style was lacking at that time. Hopefully he improved. So far I haven’t read his book, but I consider to have a look at it in the future.

Although criticised a lot, David Marriot aka. Chinabounder did something right. Getting a book deal is not easy today, so his initial effort paid of. First he wrote a blog people would criticise. By doing this he branded his name Chinabounder. Now people know if he writes a book it will be controversial. People still prefer controversial topics or controversial viewpoints instead of boring mainstream. 12% of all visitors of Yolearnchinese visited my only slightly controversial article A Chinese Woman will improve Your Chinese so far, some people commented as well. While I didn’t expect that when I wrote the article in the first place, I’m very happy that I did. Lesson learned. Be Controversial.

Notice to self: Write more controversial articles!

I can hardly understand why people disliked Chinabounder’s blog, which is open to the public again. He only wrote about things that happen every day all over the world. Sex blogs exist in the western world, far more explicit that Chinabounder’s blog, however no one really cares. Maybe the Chinese just don’t want to tell anyone what’s going on inside the country. In China everyone, especially women, tell You they’re traditional. Maybe traditional means shy on the outside, wild on the inside. So far I can backup this theory by my small knowledge about Chinese culture.

You don’t believe? Hook up with a Chinese woman and see for Yourself.

    I bet this Marriott guy is probably a bitter person. Sounds like some middle-aged loser who can’t make it in the UK, so he has to come to China (or maybe Thailand), fuck as many girls as he can to find a sense of manhood.

    Chinese ladies and gents, don’t even get pissed off at this guy, first because it’s not worth your time and second hes not the problem.

    Misunderstanding of western men and a lack of awareness, together with ignorance contribute to the victimization of so many girls.

    Looking at the big picture, Marriott is not a stupid man. A well-planned scheme: he rides on the ignorance of young Chinese girls and exploits the strong reactions of the Chinese community into getting what he want; his so-called 15min of fame. He is able to generate an audience only because of the strong public reactions. But truth be told, he is just an ordinary loser, although a bit more sad and bitter than most.

    As far as his book, it’s not even worth budging an eye because its a form of self promotion.

    Why is the book cover in Japanese? Because he understands anti-Japanese sentiments in China, thus by publishing it in such a context he is able to generate more anger.

    Public anger is his source for generating audience.

    Predictions: the book will most likely generate more public outcry, and such reactions will only nudge this loser closer to the spotlight.

    Do not be fooled. I say let this guy play his games because there are sickos and con artists like this all over the place. I personally find this Marriott guy pathetic.

  4. Hi Guru,

    your answer is a little late, but you are pretty much on spot. Chinabounder just wants to make some money using some stereotypes. Fair if you ask me.
