Increase of ethnic Chinese in America entering the pornography film industry

Summary: American media recently reported that in the past, it was rare for Chinese-Americans to enter the adult film industry, but now there are more and more. The past few years, there have even been cases of male and female actors [of Chinese origin] who have been murdered.

According to the American “World Journal” [Chinese newspaper in America] report, in the past, it was rare for Chinese-Americans to enter the adult film industry, but now there are more and more. The past few years, there have even been cases of male and female actors [of Chinese origin] who have been murdered.

Up until the last century, it was rare to see Chinese in the adult film industry. However, with the influx of new immigrants, some people will inevitably enter this line of work, taking off their clothes before the camera, and become an A-pian star. This newspaper previously reported that a mainland girl studying at a certain well-known Southern California university has filmed over 200 “short films” for porn producers, completely nude and extremely provocative. She did not think there was anything inappropriate at the time, openly discussing it with her schoolmates online. The reaction of her Chinese schoolmate was polarized, with some thinking there was no big, even praising her courage and frankness, while others looking down and disassociating with her.

2009 September, Singaporean-Chinese adult film actress Felicia Lee was murdered at her white boyfriend’s home in Monrovia, the two only having known each other for less than half a year. Suffocated to death, Felicia Lee’s body was covered in bruises.

According to Felicia Lee’s own website, she was born 1977 October 22 and grew up in Singapore, was 5 feet 6 inches tall, with 34C, 24, 34 measurements. She had previously traveled to Perth, Australia, and studied for two years in a catholic school before emigrating with her family to Los Angeles. While attending college, she worked as a part-time model, appearing multiple times on Playboy television shows, Playboy magazine, import car shows, and other adult cable television programs.

If non-nude nightclubs are included, then there are even more Southern California ethnic Chinese involved in this industry. That Los Angeles as a major immigrant city is like this is no surprise, but even San Diego where it is considered to have much less ethnic Chinese has had a Taiwanese-run “South China Seas” night club, a legally run business.

NetEase! With regards to film industry news, please include the source/seeds [for torrents]!

网易安徽合肥网友:

If America has this much, what about the island nation [Japan]?

网易广西柳州网友:

If you do not love yourself neither will others love you. Deserved to die, trash!

网易火星网友:

Losing face for Chinese people even abroad. Pei!

网易广东广州网友:

I am a female, I have seen many of her English films, and they’re pretty good. One was her first time on camera, one was wearing all pink, one was where she did it with a “monster” (doll/prop), and I watched them with enjoyment.  Just like men fantasize, women also fantasize about being with men…much less hardcore…support!!! Some bitches look like saints on the surface but are actually very lewd…I often watch [porn] by myself in the dorm.

网易广东深圳网友:

Disgrace/shame of our country.

网易河南网友:

I think this in society where corruption can be found everywhere, forcibly demolishing people’s homes to develop wealth off the land is the true national disgrace! With such a large country [population], producing some people who make A-pian is nothing to be surprised about. Don’t have your attention diverted.

网易河北石家庄网友:

We will become the world’s most lewd country. If a country whose culture was quite strict abandons its traditions, abandons its culture, then the speed of that country’s fall will be the most amazing!!!

网易广东广州网友:

I’ve seen Zhang Li’s [films] before, but didn’t watch all of it, [she] was doing it with a black person,
I personally think Evelyn Lin is pretty good, a fellow Hunanese person.

网易火星网友:

No big deal if you make [adult films], but please first learn some Japanese, and speak Japanese as much as possible when filming. Even more avoid hanging some Chinese lanterns or wearing qipao to show that you are Chinese. This kind of stuff really does not bring glory to the country.

网易北京海淀网友:

5 kuai, what kind of person do you think I am?
50 kuai? I am not that kind of person!
500 kuai? Tonight, I am your’s!
5000 kuai? Tonight, don’t treat me as a person!
50,000 kuai? Tonight, it doesn’t matter how many people!
500,000 kuai? Tonight, it doesn’t matter if you are are people!

网易河北石家庄网友:

Ugh, I bet downloads of Zhang Li’s films will surge. Before this, I didn’t even know about this person…

网易广东惠州网友:

After ethnic Chinese abroad have lived in foreign countries for several generations, they adopt Western upbringing and values. They are only of Chinese descent, and their culture and values have been influenced by the western culture and values of their country of residence, their thinking westernized, so they doing this is not strange. What we need to be clear about is that they are no longer Chinese, but foreigners, so them engaging in the sex industry is their business as foreigners. Don’t always apply the label of shame yourself, because then you would be getting upset over someone else’s matters when they are not upset themselves!

网易甘肃兰州网友:

It is still about poverty. There is this saying: “Women (Chinese) cannot be without money, and men cannot have money.”

网易江苏南京网友:

They can’t make these within the country, there’s no market, so the experts/professionals have gone abroad, with the vision and courage, ding, hurry and come back, I support domestic products.

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
