Guangzhou Sex Culture Festival Wraps Up With Striptease, SM Performances

Posted: 05/19/2014 8:00 am

Guangzhou’s annual sex culture festival ended on Sunday at the Zhongzhou Exhibition Center with everything you can expect from a sex show that includes half-naked women, arrays of sex toys, and more.

A lingerie show, body painting, SM performances, and a striptease were all featured at the three-day event from May 16 to May 18, QQ News reported. The theme of this year’s event was “harmonious society, quality life and health first” and included seminars on male AIDS prevention, sexual diseases and health.

Pornography and prostitution are banned in China, yet the country is responsible for producing more than 70 % of the world’s sex toys. And sales of sex products in China are estimated at RMB 50 billion ($8.02 billion) annually with a whopping growth rate of 63.3% each year, according to the event’s official website. The market is expected to maintain this same growth momentum for the next 15 years, it added.

Judging by the excited reactions of the mostly male audience, the market surely looks to grow with prolonged interest and better results.

Guangzhou Sex Festival is back, now featuring transsexuals

Posted: 09/4/2013 3:00 pm

This year’s Guangzhou Sex Culture Festival, which takes place from November 8-10 at the Nanfung International Exhibition Centre, will contain performances from transsexuals for the first time, Guangzhou Daily has reported on its microblog.

The annual festival has become legendary in China for its lewd performances, half-naked women, and other bizarre exhibits.

The theme of this year’s event is “Healthy Sex, Happy Families” and seminars held this year will include a talk on the psychological and hygienic implications of masturbation (Nov. 8 at 10:30 a.m., in case you’re interested in attending).

As we told you last year, the stated aims of the festival include “improving sexual morals,” and “encouraging safe sex.”

In 2009, the Chinese government moved to make sex change operations safer, which reflects a large-scale shift in attitudes towards the LGBT community.
