A dangerous ignorance about how to do “it” safely is putting the nation’s youth at risk.
Tang Wei in “Lust, Caution”
The audition for the main actress for this was pretty competitve, with 10,000 supposed actresses, including many A-listers, fighting to be the lead female role in the next film by acclaimed director Ang Lee.
I’d imagine she never expected her role was to be like this.
It was so controversial, it even threatened to ruin her career. She was the main model of a line of Ponds’ commercials, with a contract of 6 million yuan ($843,000), and her commercials ended up being BANNED in China because of this (and she was supposedly banned completely in the movie and film industry altogether)
Why was she willing to go the extra mile then though? Was it due to the pressure, that she had taken a role 10,000 actresses were fighting over, that she couldn’t refuse doing it? Or working with the very well-reknowned director Ang Lee, she just couldn’t say no?
Or was it because of her partner, Tony Leung?
This guy is apparently a well-known actor, an A-lister in their country that has several Hollywood titles in his belt as well.
BUT the most interesting part is that this is NOT his first unsimulated sex role in mainstream cinema. He allegedly also did it with Jane March in The Lover”.
What’s up with this guy? Makes one wonder if he is running PUA game on his co-stars.
China, Let’s Talk About Sex
Some praised it for its “honest, unfiltered” approach to sex education, while others were mortified.
Until then, China’s youth will continue to pay heavy price – soaring HIV rates, unwanted pregnancies, and sexual abuse – for youthful indiscretions that can easily be made safe.
