After having sex in public in a Chengdu street, a 25-year-old Spanish man and a young Chinese woman have been arrested by local police. The man will soon be deported from China, local authorities say. Videos and pictures of the incident have gone trending on Weibo, where the incident has sparked debate.

A Spanish national will be deported from China after having sex with a woman on a Chengdu street in the city’s business district. The incident occurred on the night of July 6th.

According to various Chinese news sources, the foreigner and a young Chinese woman were intoxicated when they were doing “their thing” (啪啪啪 ‘pā pā pā’, Chinese slang for ‘having sex’) on the streets of Chengdu. The young man is a 25-year-old Spaniard by the name of David.

While having sex by the side of the road, the two were attracting a large crowd with their behavior, as can be seen in videos taken by bystanders (censored video here).

The (uncensored) videos that are circulating online show how the two are lying by the side of the water, performing oral sex on each other and having intercourse as the crowd cheers them on.

 

“Some bystanders yell ‘sex! sex! sex!’ encouraging the couple in Chinese: Jiayou!”

 

As the couple are having sex, some bystanders yell ‘sex! sex! sex!’, encouraging the couple in Chinese: “Jiayou!” But there are also people who tell the lovers to go elsewhere. The couple, however, does not respond and continue their ‘pā pā pā.’

Police later arrive at the scene and arrest the Spaniard for ‘violating public security.’ In the video, the young man is heard responding to the police in broken English, just saying: “I don’t know.”

The woman is heard speaking in Mandarin, saying: “I am together with him.”

Local Chengdu police have confirmed on their official Weibo account that the man has been detained for ten days and will be deported after his release. No details have come out about the young woman and what consequences she faces for the public rendezvous, although English-language Chinese newspaper Global Times reports that the woman has also been arrested.

Pictures of the incident were released on Chinese website Cineseitalia.com (奋斗在意大利), a platform for exchange students. Some netizens on Weibo say that they have more (uncensored) videos of the incident on their phone.

The incident has caused a commotion on Chinese social media, where thousands of people discuss it. Although many people find it amusing, there are also those who express anti-foreign sentiments and also those who scold the Chinese woman for ‘degrading herself.’

 

“Foreigners just think that Chinese women are cheap and they treat them as toys, and this is the reason why!”

 

Roughly, there are two sides in the debate; those people who blame the girl for her behavior, calling her a ‘prostitute’, and those who berate the foreigner, saying he is ‘foreign scum’ taking advantage of a drunk Chinese girl.

There are also many people who denounce the entire scene, including those cheering on the couple. “They are all like wild dogs,” some say.

One person writes on Weibo: “As a person from Chengdu, I find this shameful. As a person from China, I also find this shameful. Those people cheering are all good-for-nothings! That woman has no self-respect and no self-dignity. Those foreigners just think that Chinese women are cheap and they treat them as toys, and this is the reason why! (..) It’s infuriating!”

“This is foreign trash coming to China, happens all the time,” some people say. Multiple insiders from Chengdu allege on Weibo that ‘David’ had just arrived in the city on the day the incident occurred.

“What the foreign guy does is disgraceful, and as for our drunk Chinese compatriot, this is just humiliating. The guys yelling at them to ‘spicy things up’ are nothing but lamentable!”, one commenter writes.

‘David’ is expected to be deported before the end of this month.

      Those articles still don’t show any sleazy Chinese tourists committing public sex offenses in the West.

      Perhaps you are unable to grasp the distinction.

    So many foreign men are coming to China each year with the purpose of having sex with Chinese women…white guys know they can get Chinese girls to spread her legs easily..this is white privilege, a legacy of western imperialism in China.
    White men know they can get away with it so they keep doing it. I blame Chinese women for not being able to resist western men

On Wuhan’s ‘Reopening Day’, Even Traffic Jams Are Celebrated

As the COVID-19 lockdown has ended in Wuhan, many people are happy to see the city’s traffic finally getting busy again. “I hated traffic jams before, now it makes me happy to see them.”

It was chilly and grey in Wuhan when the coronavirus epicenter city went into a full lockdown on January 23 of this year. On April 8, 76 days later, it is sunny and twenty degrees warmer outside as people leave their homes to resume work or go for a stroll.

The end of the Wuhan lockdown is a special day for many, as the city finally lifted the 11-week-long ban that shut down all travel to and from the city in a radical effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

On Wednesday, city residents returned to work as public transport started again. Roads, bridges, and tunnels were reopened, and the local airport resumed flights.

On Chinese social media, various hashtags relating to the Wuhan lockdown end have become popular topics. Using hashtags such as “Wuhan Lifts the Ban” (#武汉解封#), “Wuhan Open Again after 76 Days” (#武汉暂停76天后重启#), and “Wuhan Reopens” (#武汉重启#), the end of the coronavirus ban is a much-discussed news item, along with the spectacular midnight light show that was organized to celebrate the city’s reopening.

“Today has finally arrived! It’s been difficult for the people of Wuhan,” some commenters write.

According to China’s official statistics, that are disputed, over 3330 people have died from the new coronavirus since its outbreak; 80% of these fatal cases were reported in Wuhan. On April 6, authorities claimed that for the first time since the virus outbreak, there were zero new COVID-19 deaths.

Some state media, including People’s Daily, report that the reopening of restaurants and food shops is going smoothly in the city, as people – for the first time since January – are back to buying pan-fried dumplings and noodles from their favorite vendors.

Meanwhile, the fact that the traffic in some Wuhan areas is back to being somewhat congested is something that is widely celebrated on social media.

Some call the mild traffic congestions “great”, viewing it as a sign that the city is coming back to life again after practically turning into a ghost town for all these weeks.

“I hated traffic jams before, now it makes me happy to see them,” one Weibo commenter writes.

“I won’t complain about congested traffic again, because it’s a sign the streets are flourishing,” another Weibo user posted.

While netizens and media outlets are celebrating the end of the lockdown, several Chinese media accounts also remind people on social media that although the ban has been lifted, people still need to be vigilant and refrain from gathering in groups and standing close to each other.

Online Anger over “Special Treatment” for Quarantined Foreigners in China

Are foreigners in quarantine being treated better than Chinese nationals? This Nanjing Daily article has triggered controversy.

On March 27, an article titled “For the Good Health of 684 Foreigners” (“为了684个“老外”的安康”) sparked controversy online over the alleged special treatment of foreign nationals during their mandatory 14-day quarantine period.

According to the article published by Nanjing Daily, Nanjing’s Xianlin Subdistrict set up a special WeChat group for foreign nationals and their families returning to the city after the Spring Festival holiday, which coincided with the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

In special WeChat groups, subdistrict officers, doctors, translators, and property managers provide assistance and daily services to these China-based foreigners. Examples of such “daily services” include delivering fresh bread or contacting pet boarding facilities.

“One young man loved online shopping on Taobao, and once we delivered twenty packages for him within one day,” one member of the service group told Nanjing Daily.

Although foreign residents in China and foreigners with previously issued visas are currently no longer allowed to enter China, they needed to undergo a two-week quarantine period upon entry until the travel ban of a few days ago.

Jiangsu Province, of which Nanjing is the capital, tightened quarantine rules on March 23, making every traveler from abroad subject to a centralized quarantine (e.g. in a hotel) for fourteen days.

The special services for returning foreigners reported by Nanjing Daily triggered controversy on Chinese social media this week. Many netizens criticized it as a “supra-nationals treatment” (超国民待遇).

Under one Weibo post by media outlet The Cover (@封面新闻), which received over one million views, many people are criticizing local officers’ favorable treatment of foreigners. One commenter writes: “Will they provide the same comprehensive services to their compatriots?”

Another person writes: “Why don’t they also adhere to the slogan of ‘Serve the People’ (..) when dealing with Chinese citizens?”

In discussing the supposed inequality between the treatment of foreigners and Chinese nationals in quarantine, many netizens raise a recent example of a quarantined Chinese student who asked the civil police staff for mineral water. In a video that circulated online in mid-March, the girl quarrels with the police for not being offered mineral water. The student, demanding mineral water over the available boiled tap water, was ridiculed for suggesting that having mineral spring water is a “human right.”

Ironically, the Nanjing Daily article explicitly mentions how the Xianlin Subdistrict deals with foreigners drinking purified water: “[This] Laowai [foreigner] wants to drink bottled purified water, [so] we bought four barrels for him (..) and carried them from the community gate to his apartment.”

The contrast in treatment of quarantined foreigners versus Chinese nationals prompted some Weibo users to reflect on their previous remarks on the female student: “I apologize for previously mocking the Chinese student at the quarantine center in Pudong, Shanghai, for demanding to drink mineral water,” one commenter writes.

In response to the online controversy, the office of the Xianlin Subdistrict clarified that Chinese nationals would receive “corresponding services” during their quarantine period. Some netizens question what these alleged “corresponding services” exactly entail.

In another media report, the official reply was that “the Subdistrict treats Chinese and foreign citizens the same.”

Over recent years, there have been many online controversies on the issue of privilege in China. Earlier this year, there was public outrage over two women driving a Benz SUV into the Palace Museum, where cars are usually not allowed.

The issue of the perceived privileges of foreigners in China has particularly triggered anger among netizens. The “preferential treatment” of overseas students and the “dorm disparities” between Chinese and foreign students in China, for example, previously became major topics of online discussion.

A popular WeChat article that comments on the Nanjing controversy of this week also lists examples of special treatment for foreigners, including cases where foreigners were not fined when breaking rules in China or being “treated better” in other ways. By now, the article has received over 100,000 views.
