If you want the official party statement, yes

If you believe what the party tells you, congratulations, you're now Chinese.

 

Do you think the police/government don't know what a brothel looks like?  If there are whores all throughout China I think a bit a porn can go under the radar

Pornography is indeed illegal in China, as illegal as prostitution, nudity, and many other things which we happen to see each day.  It is supposed to be a sin of capitalism, and as such, outlawed.  

But, ...............

Exactly!

Thanks for the answers. I don't get what's the point of banning pornography.  I think people always find a way if they really want it.  

But anyway, I brought my own porn when I came and no one stopped me. surprise

 

Peace

HappyExPat:

It is a political point, but reality is different. Just remember to be careful with what you brought, do not flaunt it please. They may pick on you when they look for guinea picks to set an example. Peace to you too !

Yes...they will hunt you down after tracking your IP after you have checked out a porn site.  Then they will send you to a "rehabilitation" center for 5 years to harmonize your sick mind.

Brothels, KTV girls, bribes and corruption are just fine....but the moment you get the urge to surf for porn, be careful....they will get you.

It's supposed to be which means if you get caught using it, watching it etc., you can get fined, arrested, imprisoned and probably fired. Although it's very easy to watch it on the internet and there are people still selling it on the streets through dvd. 

 

Ha ha, I said: "internet"!!

It's one of my favourite things about China - no porn.

 

*of course there is porn to be found here and there - but basically its banned.

Apparently not. Search random words on Baidu and you'll see what I mean.

I picked a random word "baptismal" and entered it to Baidu, found no porn

Of course it is.  By the way hookers are as little as 50 RMB, and you can buy a sex DVD in almost every street corner vendor. Have a good time!

Hulk:

Really? 50 RMB? Uh... where? I just want to know... for science.

Although I like the topic of pornography, it is illegal in China, drug use and whoring are illegal in China, but if the other party is willing or you are a husband and wife, of course it is not illegal,

Blondie_:

so you like porn?
it seems this is what you are saying and that this is ok as long as the parties involved in this (and drug use and prostitution) are consenting.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer not respecting the contract later on. -- icnif77
