Asia Adult Expo

_DSC4201

It’s Asia Adult Expo time where China’s sex toy manufacturers showcase their products to stores and buyers from across the globe. The wholesale prices are ridiculously cheap, a stark reminder of the margins involved in much of retail today.

In recent years a lot of creativity, thought, science and manufacturing wizardry has gone into improving and enhancing how we can bring ourselves and our partners pleasure. Although I’m not sure that many of us will be wanting to fiddle with a phone app in the middle of an orgasm… And a first person perspective 3D VR film loses it’s impact when as is legally required in Japan genitals are pixelated out.

At any other product expo, visitors to the show would be touching, examining the products to check for quality, design… Yet still society’s taboo on pleasuring ourselves and others exerts it’s influence with most visitors discretely looking from outside a booth rather than stepping in as they would with other product expos.

If you don’t fancy a visit to sex store but want to improve your sex life most of the manufacturers have websites where you can buy direct through Alibaba.

7:15pm, 29 February – Theatre – C Sharp C Blunt at Asia Society Hong Kong Center
C Sharp C Blunt is based on the concept of the loop. An electronic musician, live on stage creates and layers loops from live sound. The loop in its nature reflects the training of the singer through endless repetition and also the process of cultural and social programming. This cultural programming also defines the specific way girls and women are supposed to behave.
The play looks at traditional gender roles as engrained by culture versus the woman as the globalised consumer living in a new market that caters to her wants and needs. We look at the performer as a site of battle between purity and consumption, between servitude and ego, between being-looked-at-ness and self-determination.

7pm, 1 March – Buddhist Day – Shantum Seth at Ovolo Southside Hotel

Tickets for all events are available at www.indiabythebay.com
