Yes, it is that time of the year again! The Fourth China International Adult Toys and Reproductive Health Exhibition returns at the Shanghai International Exhibition Center this weekend in Hongqiao from Friday to Sunday.
For the first time in the history of the fair, renowned sex expert and founder of China’s first sex museum Liu Dalin, will bring about 300 exhibits with him and give FREE talks about the history of sex and culture in ancient China. All exhibits will have explanation in Chinese and English.
Shanghaiists who have been in the city for a longer time will remember that the sex museum, which is now located in neighbouring Tongli, Jiangsu, was originally located in Shanghai. It moved from Nanjing Lu, and then to Wuding Lu and eventually closed down, when it found that it could not cover the rent. Only last year did it bring some of its exhibits back to Shanghai to open a new branch museum at the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel.
As the below links will attest to, Shanghaiist has been avid visitors of the past Sexpo’s (all in the name of research!), and we have definitely been witnesses of how it has grown from strength to strength (no pun intended) since its inaugural fair. Like most events in Shanghai, this year’s show promises to be bigger(ooohh!), better(aaahh!), though not longer (at just three days). Do not miss it for the world!
