The blog China Divide just made a case for legalizing pornography in China: Pornography should be legal in China. Before I comment about the details I just want to add my signature. Junjie supports that case. Signed! Healthy sex life in China 加油!
Help doctor, my sex life is not harmonious!
Since chairman Mao took over mainland China sex became more and more anti-harmonious. Mao prohibited men having several wifes. Yet he himself had several at the same time, but that’s probably because he was holy or whatever and he had special powers. However the ill-fated propaganda continued and continues today. The black suits of all ranks know how to have a swinging party in sleazy KTVs, yet they speak with their twisted tongue in interviews and public announcements, upholding the harmonious society. Why should anyone care?
I’ve been to China a few times and it can be really painful to talk to some people. I was in Kunming at this English corner some day and talked to this mid 20s guy. He just broke up with his girlfriend. Something was wrong with him. So I asked him if the sex was not satisfying. He said he had been with her like 10 years, but they didn’t have sex. Well, they didn’t even kiss (except on their cheeks). She told him she is not yet ready. Then some day he found out some other guy is banging her regularly. He asked her to stop it, but finally split up with her. The story was really heartbreaking.
From all I heard and experienced I have this theory, that many girls in China who do go out once in a while (read: they know something about life, yet know what the family expects) in fact have one official boyfriend. She will keep him at distance and not start anything with him, yet she will do things necessary so he stays. This guy is just for public display to show she is a traditional girl. At the same time she has fun secretly with all the other guys.
If your brain gets brainwashed with CCTV every day, then there is no wonder this crap happens. Watch some random Chinese soap opera. It’s not romantic. It’s totally over the top. If those guys watched some porn in their youth instead they would actually know what is life about. You can’t blame them.
This being said I agree with China Divide. Educate the masses. Let them watch porn! Would make a real harmonious society with a healthy sex life in China.
