May 20 (520) is a special day in China

Post by SitangCampus » Wed May 20, 2020 9:35 am

The reason is that 520 sounds like "I love you" in mandarin Chinese, so this day is now becoming a national day of romance after the joint popularization efforts of young people and the businesses who want to make money. In order to make money, Chinese businesses like their peers around the world welcome any idea that is workable, sometimes at the cost of morality.

IKEA China branch office said recently that a local girl did some public flashes of private parts in the shop floor and the video thereof was put for view on pay at some porn sites. But some audience believe it is a stunt of the company to promote its declining business amid COVID-19.

Is there any penalty for accessing porn sites in China? And can people access them quite easily? Or do they need a proxy etc?

You ask a good question. At the beginning of the internet history, people are strictly forbidden to access any thing in relation to pornorgraphy and will be penalized by law according to the severity of the violation. They may be fined at a big sum or detained in a jail for two weeks.
But considering it is the human nature to find something exciting when they get rich and no other better things to do, some leaders choose the policy of an ostrich, that is, to bury their heads in the sand, or in the Chinese saying, to have one eye opened and the other closed at the same time, so many young people in China can collect or access to porn data in many forms, especially those made in Japan.
People can evenly openly talk online about their hard disks which contain such contraband to show they are true males, because a man will be looked down on if he is ignorant about anything about sex or women.
Now in the 5G era, internet is becoming a part of life in China, publicly porn is still banned, but more tolerance is accepted. Famous and important porn sites remain unreachable through legal channels, but lesser ones have succeeded in getting around the web firewall set by the government. VPN service, though illegal, is easily available but a relatively high cost, with which a user can get to wherever he wants in the internet.
The above said model in IKEA is said to be a paid nude model for pornhub, whose alias is Fullfive or something like that, perhaps you can search on that site to have a look yourself. At the moment, I am a law-abiding guy and won't use VPN service for this purpose.
