“Services” Available At Certain “Saunas” In China Translated

Below are images of service menus or lists at various massage parlors and saunas in China where most of the services available are written as wildly esoteric Chinese idioms that reveal little about the true salacious nature of the “service” itself. Most Chinese netizens are completely baffled by the terms on the menus, while others attempt to decode and interpret what the possible meanings could be.

    I’m not sure what this “sofa”business is about, but based on what I’ve seen on other articles, I feel compelled to take a seat.

    • Chef Rocco

      The “sofa” business is nothing unless you take service such as “jaded hand guiding dragon” or “breast rubbing dragon’s body” while lying on it, lol..

      • Raggamuffin

        It’s true, in comparison the sofa is kinda lonely… and so many people have been here before me that it seems a bit dirty too… I could really use a “Hand-wash dragon” right about now.

  • hi

    first oh yeah

    • Pvt. Joker

      Nice try, better luck next time.

  • Pvt. Joker

    “Hand-wash dragon gate” – does that mean next time I have to tip my proctologist?

  • Curren$y

    How much for good old vaginal penetration?

  • manusan

    688 yuan …. for an simple Handjob by a grandma.

    fucking inflation.

  • Fusion of dragon and phoenix



    *7. Desert storm (blowjob with pop rocks in mouth)*

    I must try this

    • staylost

      This should’ve been the title of the article. The person who made this comment in China deserves a red star.

    • chengdont

      No doubt your BF will deeply appreciate it!

      • sunnyG

        nice one~
        yeah, playa, try it and let your mom know how it went

  • Ronon

    11. Ice and fire; nine steps to heaven (blowjob alternating with hot water and ice in the mouth)
    What kind of massage parlor is this if they don’t even know how to use the proper technique for this? If a guy requests this and he would be given that, he’d probably be quite annoyed.

    P.S. Why do I get redirected to the “this comment seems a little bit spammy” page when I try to post my comment? It gets quite annoying after a few tries…

  • Er… wow. The world is crumbling around our ears and we’re talking about handjobs?

    Well, we could all use a little light “relief” I suppose.

  • fool

    well we all know thats its full of protitution these massage parlours…except for some of course…but the 95% is prostitution..so why say there is no prostitution here eh?? you think we dont have eyes and ears???

    • Chef Rocco

      fool, These parlors don’t care whether you have eyes and ears, they just want to take good care of your “dragon”, do you have a “dragon”?

  • Tommy

    I went to a bar in the Czech Republic once. The menu listed several things other than food.

  • Jess

    This list has me more confused than a translated-to-English menu at a Beijing restaurant…

    • pengyou

      You are foreigner people you are guest.
      Your Chinese coworkers/business partners will order for you.

  • bando

    the metaphors hurt by eyes

  • andy888

    I will go and road test the menu now

  • McCurry

    Man I wish my company send me on more business trips now. No wonder my coworkers are all so jolly when coming back from trips

  • Irvin

    lol This is new to me, I didn’t know menu exist. Usually you have to ask the pimp about the services available or ask the girls directly.

    Places with good services and girls usually do cost around 400 to 600rmb but all the girls are models/air hostess quality. I’ve heard about these saunas but I only know about the straight up whore house advertised as “hotels” that are opened by kids of government officials.

    Anyway, what always surprised me is how these places are so readily available yet people still behaved like sex starved teenagers yet to have their cherry pop.

  • Curt

    Interesting that “10 fingers strumming the instrument” is obvious to English speakers but not to the Chinese netizen.

  • Carlos

    Who knows what these means, it could be anything, couldn’t they come up with something more obvious like,

    Panda descending on Dragon’s back. 300yuan
    Great Wall of China needs paint job. 400 yuan
    Ming Warrior with family of four. 350 yuan
    Man with only one chopstick. 250 yuan.
    Tiger loses glasses and cannot read. 500 yuan
    Scorpion takes summer vacation. 300 yuan.
    Go to Go and Collect 200 yuan.

    I think these would be a much more understandable list.

    • golden shower

      Haha, oh snap, love those new names Carlos, laughed my ass off.

      The flowing water, golden mountain service sounds vaguely familiar, anyone into water sports?

  • So interesting, one of those cases where even the best translation still leaves one completely bewildered :).

    A few are somewhat transparent, but I would LOVE to know what ‘Roaming the North Pole’ refers to…

  • hilin1212

    i like chines girl

  • CJ

    Toast to the emperor is cumming on her face.
    Topple the Mountains and Overturn the Seas is she sits on you, and then you turn her over and enter from behind.
    Tuck between breasts is placing your dick in her cleavage while she gently rubs her tits together up and down.
    Ten finger strumming the instrument is a ten fingered hand job.
    Flying Dragon on Earth could be entering her from above, mouth, vagina, or anus.
    Seeking the moon under the sea could be anal sex.

    Not 100% sure on these, but I believe fairly good guesses.
