Yu-Han Chao

Sex and Taipei City

Sex in Taipei City is not what one expects: it is repressed, traded for cash, vengeful, sometimes awkward and almost always secretive. A young Taiwanese man goes on his first real date with a British man he meets online, a uniformed schoolgirl sells her body for cash in an odd form of revenge, a grandfather becomes obsessed with Japanese porn, and a pregnant mistress offers her lover's wife five million NT in exchange for her to divorce her husband.

    “Never mind what silly children say. Whatever she said, it’s nonsense.”

    The bride dabbed her eye with a tissue and sat upright in the chair. “On the contrary,” she said, “children hear everything. They tell the truth.”

    She knew it was shallow and probably a sin to be vain at church, like the little girl with red shoes who danced herself to death.
