Unfortunately, this week we don’t have any sexy photos or stories of illicit, and perhaps illegal, sexual activity on the mainland. But we do have something almost better than sex: violence!
That’s right. We’re in the midst of several different wars, some hot, some cold, online and offline. Baidu is facing off against Qihoo360 in the online search wars, 360buy is battling everyone except Amazon in ecommerce, and Chinese people are feverish with nationalism and anti-Japanese sentiment over some rocks in the Pacific Ocean.

After the amazing amount of referral traffic from Google to China Punks 20: Japanese Porn is its Own Culture, it has been decided by the CP Media board of directors that every subsequent episode, or just the title, of China Punks (patents pending) shall include references to porn, sex, and/or Japanese porn stars.
We shan’t go out of our way to offend our audience; we work with what we’re given. This week that includes a group sex scandal as it may or may not have involved some top level local officials, but definitely ended with two innocent, sexually curious teachers getting fired because group sex is illegal in China…. This in the same country where (underage) girls are kidnapped, forced to have group sex, and then have their moms sent to labor camps (Listen to China Punks 21: Time waits for no man for more on that).
We didn’t talk about it on the show, but make sure to check out Charlie’s trailer for his documentary, Living With Dead Hearts
