Behind closed doors

chinese sex

There is a college town in suburban Nanjing, called Xianlin. Like most college towns across the nation, residents rent out apartments to students who want to get away from their dorm lives and enjoy some privacy.

A unit goes for 30-100 yuan (S$7-S$20) a day, varying according to demand.

A student may patronize such a place to focus on his or her study or to have an intimate moment with a date.

In late February, someone in Xianlin posted a notice, titled "A letter to college students who rent rooms with dates", and it went like this:

"For a flash of pleasure, you have failed the expectations of your parents and teachers, and have failed to live up to be role models.

You have passionate kisses by the roadside, in buses; you walk hand in hand into this neighborhood. Here's my advice to you:

Young students should develop correct morals, have dignity and self-love and strength. You should do what a student is supposed to do.

You should have lofty ideals and a correct mode of thinking.

Don't waste your education and a life of happiness because of immature romance.

We sincerely plead that female students resist the illusory temptations and male students don't use up your future happiness on ephemeral and shallow pleasures.

If you love each other, please respect each other!

The bottom line of morality should be upheld by both sides!

We also caution the renters that you must love these kids.

If they were your own children, would you want to see them walk into the rooms?

Don't give them a hot bed for their foolish impulses for the sake of petty profits!"

The letter was signed: Parents, uncles, aunts, brothers and sisters who want to see you grow up, make progress and be happy.

The above letter, after making its way to the Internet, has elicited an avalanche of feedback, which neatly falls into two categories: Those who support the letter agree that students nowadays must be awakened from their degenerate ways; and those who oppose him argue he is being too nosy.

Very simple poll question.

Do you support college students renting rooms to have sex?

I think it would be ok to rent a room if the two people involved really loved each other. If its just for sex, then forget it.

Everyone loves sex, but its better when its with a loved one, rather than a guy just getting off.

I think at college age, it's pretty much all sex. Can two 19 year olds really be "in love"?

Love can find you at any age, soulmates, the one true love, childhood sweethearts... All of these will be in love.

Can two 19 year olds be in love? Sure, they are young adults. Though the need for promiscuity these days is normal. Id say true love is dying out, just like romance.

Though being young and at college, isn't it normal to "Play the field"?

Voted "yes", because once in college I had the dude I was sharing a room with walk in during sex and completely ruin the mood.

I would MUCH rather that my roommate rent a room than have sex while I'm in the room ... or even if I"m not!

Elver said...

Well, the tradition is to have sex in your roommate's bed at least once with every chick you bring there... ;)

The Red Guards should hunt down these degenerates, pull out their fingernails with pliers, and force them to walk around in a cangue while wearing a sign on their neck bearing the details of their crimes against the party.

Oh, come on, Roger. Shagging on your roomie's bed is not that big of a crime!
