Interview with Danwei about my book Behind the Red Door: Sex in China

This interview offers an excellent overview of my book and what I was trying to achieve (if I say so myself). Note the graphic; those talismans were the way a lot of couples used to learn about sex in olden times when there was no sex education and no Internet. They were a gift from caring parents, to be used on one’s wedding night. I talk about prostitution from China’s earliest days to now, China’s shifting attitudes toward same-sex love, the Internet’s effects on sex in China, etc. Please check the interview out! You can also check out my book, and even buy a copy, here. And if you haven’t “Liked” my page on Facebook you can do it here. Thanks.

Such shameless self-promotion, typical imperialist! Stop spreading seditious lies about the way Chinese people have sex and trying to enforce your so-called “Western Values” on peace-loving, sex-hating Chinese!

Everybody knows that goodsex in China is only had when you are married and NEVER with your spouse.

And to be honest, R-Money, that was an oustandingly bland interview.

Stop confusing FACT according to EVIDENCE -which is ungood, with FACT according to WHAT THE PARTY WANTS -which is doubleplusgood!
