Everything is illegal in China, but the laws are not enforced. So, KTV work is as "legal" as hotel gyms with attached "spa", full-service massage parlours, certain barber shops, and escort services that are advertised online or via social media (eg. WeChat).

You want additional services? Just ask and ye shall receive.

Don't believe for one minute that you won't be asked to perform extra-fee services.  Not for one RMB 10,000 minute.  Don't believe it.  Maybe not even asked -- simply coerced.

If it's "Only drinking-dancing-playing stupid games, no additional services" as you say, then no...that's not illegal.  And depending on where you are, even some "additional services" might be quasi-legal.  For example, the courts in Zhejiang province ruled that hand-jobbed happy endings were ok.  No penetration, no prostitution, no problem! NpNpNp!

Why would dancing and playing silly games be illegal?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
