No Sex Talk on Chinese TV this season

Guess we'll have to make our own sex talk these cold winter nights. Not that we would have understood the Chinese sex talk, anyway. But it would have been nice to know that it was there. (smile)

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has pulled the plug on a new late-night television show about sex two weeks before the first episode was scheduled to air. "The Masks," China's first nationally televised sex talk show in which everyone was to wear a mask to hide their embarrassment, was scheduled for a Jan. 1 debut on more than 50 provincial and city channels.


"[the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television] should fully realize the importance of keeping correct direction in every minute of TV or radio programs," the statement said.

The show is one of a few media products to get the red flag from Beijing this month. Last week, the administration banned a Nike ad in which NBA star LeBron James defeats a kung fu master and other traditional Chinese characters on charges of offending "national feelings." It outlawed a computer sports game that classified Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet as separate countries.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
