Authorities have shut down a literally underground sex-therapy ring based in a run-down house under a mountain in Guangdong province. A watchdog and police had suspected the group of brainwashing members into performing various sex acts, claiming that it would help relieve their tension. Shanghai Daily reports:
The raid took place on Tuesday after an undercover investigative story by Yangcheng Evening News, a local Guangdong news outlet, drew public attention. A reporter from the newspaper pretended to be an interested client and participated in some courses to observe the facility’s operations. The reporter also talked with some members and facility workers, including the woman under detention.
The media investigation showed the facility charged exorbitant rates for variously-themed “spiritual and body training” courses. During the classes, members, who were given strangers as partners, were invited to indulge in intimate movements such as blowing wind at and rubbing each others’ body parts as part of the exercise. The reporter found that during some “advanced courses” which were even more costly, the students were even encouraged to have intercourse inside classrooms. The idea was to implant the belief of unrestricted sex practice in members’ minds to achieve so-called liberty, peace and harmony of body and spirit, according to the report.
The facility had attracted at least 100 members for its recent programs, most of them office workers or business professionals from across the country, including from Shanghai and Macau, police said.
We’re wondering how much did they really need to “brainwash” people to not only have sex, but convince them that sex, does in fact, relieve tension.
And how did 100 people from all over China discover this secluded sex ring without the aid of that new iPhone app that provides info on these kinds of services?
