Chinese Erotic Art
China is yet another example of a great civilisation with a deeply sensual past and a rigidly conservative present. The ruling communist party has an attitude towards sexuality that any religious fundamentalist would be proud of. In “modern” China, it is illegal to reproduce anything which the authorities define as immoral or pornorgraphic.
