This is the kind of stuff you just can’t make up: officials threatening flight attendants for not letting them leave their luggage in dangerous areas (ie, in the middle of the aisle), officials punching cops, and sons of officials crashing their Ferrari due to intense threesome action.

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

Don’t mind the title; we do talk about other things besides porn this week. However, if you are my mom or someone who is offended by pornography or its discussion, you might want to fast forward through that discussion.
Otherwise, enjoy! Tell a friend to tell a friend and spread the love!

As our one listener noticed (you know who you are), we did not have a chance to produce an episode last week. Partly a scheduling error and partly a technical issue, we had to skip last week.
And (congratulations to Charlie), Mr Custer is, as of this writing, formally getting married. Thus, this episode is either very late or very early (even though it is being posted at the usual time).
Again, welcome everyone from the No Agenda Stream. You can find the show notes below.
