Lovebeside, did you manage to see the Sharon Stone picture? Did the link work for you? I think western men must like it because you see this type of "sexuality" more and more in the media.

You know, it is a kind of escalation. Celebrities need to do more and more outrageous things to get attention, to be "provocative." I'm really FED up that everything nowadays has to be "sexy." You can't see a movie without a fairly explicit sex scene, the same with a book; you can't see a celebrity on a special occasion (Oscars, etc) without half her body hanging out of her skimpy dress.

However, what we hear very little about is friendship and real love. Those are slow and quiet pursuits and hence aren't very exciting for mass-marketing. Little wonder that so many people are confused!

Sorry, not sure what is the “tat” in Chinese.
But when a lady is wearing Qipao, the man at her side could wear Chinese tunic suit or Tang suit.
FYI.






Welcome to China! Qipao will never be out, but you would rarely see a lady wearing Qipao in the street. Please remember, do not come with a tourist group. They would ruin your imagination.

Yeah, the link works well for me. But it is enough for me to only see this hot cover girl. I just can’t enjoy, sorry, so I quit.

You are right, so, why the media could draw our attention through this way? I think it is human nature. If we do not like this kind of sexual things, they definitely would not be marketable.

It is true! But have to say, a little sex scene in a brilliant movie could make this movie famous and well known, but in a bad movie, it would be worse.

Friendship and real love? Who cares?! There are not bottom lines any more. What we really want is once had but not possessing forever.

Lovebeside, i'm not a prude. Sex because of passion i like but sex based on artifice is boring to me. Like many women, i never cared about pornography either and have never been able to see more than a minute or two of a porn movie. All in all, women are very different from men in many regards smiling smiley

I remember seeing a French movie in a cinema. The story was set hundreds of years ago and a husband who had been away on a war for ten long years returns to his loving wife in a village. They embrace and then she leads him to the bedroom. The audience expected to see a hot love scene showing her passion and desire to make up for ten years of not having made love to him. But instead she closes the bedroom door in the audience's face. So, the audience felt the passion but wasn't treated to any body parts and the standard moves of a couple in bed. I saw the movie with a male friend and when we walked out of the cinema he said, "Wow, that really was a hot scene when she took him to the bedroom." To be able to show body parts is easy; to show passion is much more difficult.

It's a lot like the Qipao versus the western skimpy clothing. It's much more interesting to be allowed to imagine than to see the wares on display winking smiley

Maybe we should return to discussing the Qipao and traditional Chinese clothing to stay on safe grounds smiling smiley

In China,a cultural renaissance movement have been put on for years.
Some people begun to wear their ancestries' wearing and show others people.And tell people the culture we Chinese have abandoned for hundreds of years.Not just clothing,but also comity,belief,the style of lives,our history.
















Personally,I don't like Qipao as much as you,because it is not created by local Chinese.I believe a Chinese wears hanfu is more like the Chinese people.

I read your topics,about the sexual western dress.I think it should not be about China and Western countries' dressing culture.In China such kind of women will dress a half-naked cloth in Chinese style...
such as:

(not naked?turn around)

I see your points,Tangerine. I agree with you. Some sex scenes in the movie are totally unnecessary. We have right to choose the movie we feel like, which is a better thing for us.
Yeah, men and women are very different creatures! That is why they often quarrel about many things – as we have different views on the things. The best way is trying to understand each other.

Ajin, i disagree with you on qipao and hanfu. Some of the hanfu pictures gave me the impression these guys were walking on the street in their bathrobes smiling smiley Those garments may be excellent to wear at home though.

I also like that little blue/white dress, the last in your post of Aug 14 5:52 pm. That just seems a modern take on traditonal cloth. Very pretty girl, too, and natural. You seem to have a keen eye for finding good pictures, Ajin. Maybe you could do a thread with pictures of Chinese girls/women (not celebrities). You'll find that what Chinese and westerners consider beautiful is vastly different. That could be a fun topic.

Lovebeside, women are the same the whole world over. So are the men! smiling smiley

Chinese culture is really amazing and interesting. I also love the country because of its beautiful people. Their way of life, values and culture beliefs are really colorful and interesting. I was really amazed how they celebrate marriage. The wedding ceremony is really awesome. Thanks for sharing these posts & pictures, I enjoyed it.
