18 Orgies Later, Chinese Swinger Gets Prison Bed [New York Times]

“Marriage is like water,” he said. “You have to drink it. Swinging is like wine. Some people feel it’s delicious the first time they try it, so they keep drinking. Some people try it and think it tastes bad, so they never drink it again. It’s completely voluntary. No one is forcing you.”

BEIJING — In public, he was a twice-divorced computer science professor dedicated to his students and to caring for an elderly mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

In private, the professor, Ma Yaohai, 53, led a life that became intolerable to Chinese authorities: for the past six years, he was a member of informal swingers clubs that practiced group sex and partner swapping. In online chat rooms, his handle was Roaring Virile Fire. He organized and engaged in at least 18 orgies, most of them in the two-bedroom apartment in Nanjing where he lived with his mother, according to prosecutors.

On Thursday, a court sentenced the randy Mr. Ma to three and a half years in prison, a severe penalty for a crime that the Chinese government calls “crowd licentiousness.” Mr. Ma, now China’s most famous swinger, remains defiant and plans to appeal, saying his sex life is his own business, not subject to the law as long as he causes no social disturbance, according to his lawyer, Yao Yong’an.

Asia Adult Expo: Despite conservative traditions, Asia’s sex industry is exploding [CNN-GO]

And the Chinese seem unleashed despite the cultural taboos – if anything here’s evidence that perhaps there’s not much difference between the ‘liberal’ West and the ‘conservative East’ – “there’s no denying that China has a massive pent-up demand for X-rated products…”

I am not sure about the unlimited growth this article purports, but surely it is a massive emerging market that will explode if tapped wisely, given the spending power the Chinese now have access to. Furthermore there’re all probably made in China anyways.

To round off, two bits of speculation. It is probably noteworthy an event such as this is held in Macau and not mainland proper, and second, getting the Chinese out of their shells and being comfortable with sex is surely going to have a dent on China’s population control policies – or perhaps that’s their intention – it is time for the Chinese to multiply (for domestic or external purposes). The last time this happened was when Mao promoted population growth after the revolution – thereby creating the world’s largest consumer market that now helps so many Chinese industries thrive. Of course it helps when you have a huge home base to tap on. Comments most welcome, please.

Asia Adult Expo: Despite conservative traditions, Asia’s sex industry is exploding

A busty girl in an air hostess costume waves an artificial vagina in my face then shakes it near her crotch. She unbuttons her shirt and slips out of her skirt, revealing a black bikini underneath. Now she returns to pumping the device to the beat of a Japanese pop song.

This was the scene at the press preview for last weekend’s Asia Adult Expo. Japanese sex toy company Tenga was hosting a product demonstration of Flip Lite, their best-selling masturbation sleeve, and the girl in front of me was Japanese porn actress Anna Hisaki. The male photographers around me looked like they couldn’t believe their luck.

Held at The Venetian Macau on August 20-22, the third Asia Adult Expo was a three-day sex fair during which sex toy manufacturers from around the globe paraded their latest curiosities. These included the world’s smallest vibrator and an inflatable President Obama sex doll. Read the rest of this entry »
