Not A Chinese Fantasy

6 May

Sex Scandal in ChinaFor no other reason, this Sinica podcast, “Sex in China”, is important for puncturing the myth, that Chinese society is progressive or even authoritative on human sex. To paraphrase, the best characterization of sex in Chinese society one of the guests offers is, that China is not progressively-minded about sex, but can offer insights on many topics in surprising ways. Or, more pithily, it’s different, not better.

…with a discussion that stretches from Daoist sex manuals and imperial sex customs to getting jiggy during the Cultural Revolution and even matters like homosexuality in contemporary China, this is a podcast you don’t want to miss.
