Chinese Sex Fiend Forced to Wear Fake Beard for Orgies
Chinese attitudes toward sex have changed dramatically during the last 20 years, said sociologist Li Yinhe, China's most prominent sex expert.
Even a generation ago, holding hands and kissing in public were virtually unheard of. These days, studies indicate that 60 to 70 per cent of Chinese have had sex before marriage, up from 15 per cent in 1989._ _NZHerald
Most Chinese do not approve of Ma's activities, but they do not feel that Ma should be sent to prison for his private sexual behaviour.
They were members of a modern-day swingers' club in China, where people met online and then gathered in private homes or hotels for group sex parties involving dozens of men and women.Ma is planning to appeal his 3 year sentence. But even should he be released from the smaller prison where he is being held, he would only be released into the larger prison commonly known as "China."
But when officials charged Ma Yaohai, 53, with "group licentiousness" the case touched off huge public interest with titillating details and sparked a deeper debate about sexual freedom in a nation that is trying to reshape its own modern morality.
Ma said his decision to join the swingers was voluntary. "Marriage is like water. You have to drink it. Swinging is like a cup of wine. You can drink it if you like. If you don't like it, don't drink it," he said.
In arguing his activities involved consenting adults meeting in nonpublic places, Ma's defiance seemed to strike a chord in an era of relative sexual freedom, where extramarital affairs and prostitution are common - drawing support from those who believe the Chinese government should stay out of the bedroom.
Entering the court at the start of the two-day trial on April 7, he blurted out: "How can I disturb social order? What happens in my house is a private matter." _NZHerald
The ugly fake beard? There is no accounting for culture.
It seems as if today's China is custom-made for teledildonics and virtual sex.
