Shanghaiist Hairy Crab and Sex Museum Tour: We’ve already provided five irrefutable reasons why you should sign up for Shanghaiist’s Hairy Crab and Sex Museum Tour on Nov. 3-4, but we’ll condense it down to two. Sweet-meat, roe-oozing, 100% bonafide hairy crabs right at the source, Yangcheng Lake, and an inside look at the sex lives of the ancients – jade dildos, bondage, the whole nine “inches” – before the sex museum’s lease is up. Itinerary and sign up sheet here!
