Q: Why are there so many damn sex shops in China?

And why are they so openly in sight? Back home it's at least a little more discreet...here they're everywhere in the big streets...

I thought Chinese cared a lot about face...wouldn't you therefore want those sex shops a little hidden?

The new chinese society is more urban, more western and open minded. Besides they are very horny by nature. To keep the sanity of the country within crime limit because of the huge population coupled with expats, the govt has acted well on massage parlours, sex shops et al. By being discreet its still gonna happen...so why not be open. When you have things open you accept it as a way of life or lifestyle but when you are curbed....then the problem starts. I believe its good for all!

Ya they are definitely more visible in China than back home in Texas!

Hell, it is easier to buy a gun in Texas than it is to buy a sex toy!

But it is strange in a society that is so seemingly reserved about sex that sex shops are so common. I guess doing the old dirty is gettn' mighty popular.

Totally agree!
And in fact, who will buy stuff there? Why can the shops still exist?

I think the whole "stop breeding" initiative by the government has alot to do with it. 

Makes condoms visible, people will use them.

I don't know either. last time I saw  three 4-10 year old girls playing with the "samples" . I guess they are the shop keeper's daughters

seems easy way to make fast money even with the competition around i guess....... known as prostitution, call-girls. you see shops around, if you can clearly observe the houses so some monkey-business is also going on

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
