China Watch Blog has learnt that the 9th Guangzhou Sex Culture Festival will be held from November 12 to 14 at the Guangzhou Jinhan Exhibition Center. Tickets are 30 RMB.
This year, the main draw is expected to be the “sex in American culture” exhibition.
According to a China Daily report, a provincial official has promised to make efforts to further develop the sexual culture to help build a happy Guangdong province.
“There will not be a happy Guangdong without local residents having happy sex lives,” said Zhang Feng, deputy secretary-general of Guangdong provincial government.
Zhang said more than 20 percent of single people suffered from a feeling of sexual repression in the province.
Zhang, who is also director of Guangdong provincial commission of population and family planning, and chairman of Guangdong Sexology Association, was speaking to the local media in Guangzhou on Thursday, the eve of Singles’ Day, ahead of the opening of sex culture festival tomorrow (Nov 12).

According to statistics from the commission, on an average, Chinese people are now getting married at 30, compared to 20 in the beginning of the previous century. But people are attaining sexual maturity at an earlier age. “That indicates the Chinese have more years as sexually mature singles,” he said.
He urged greater exposure to sexual knowledge and more awareness of safe sex practices for the locals.
