  • About the Talk

    As Chinese women become more self-conscious, they are more likely to accept the narratives of sexuality and sexy bodies, talking their physical experience and feelings in sex which were often ignored or shrouded in silence because of the cultural and social norms, and, more importantly, their self-understanding and self-control. The narratives represent women’s exploration and expectation of their bodies, which help shape their bodies in turn.

    Sexuality, Body and Sociology of Story-telling written by Huang Yingying, Director of the Institute for Research on Sexuality and Gender, Renmin University of China, tells several stories about sexuality and bodies of different groups, and analyzes the unique “body” issues in China from multiple perspectives. A bald woman, or a breastless woman because of cancer, for example, is seen as pathological and imperfect, or even as a nonfemale monster.

    What do different female groups think about the characters and dressings of different genders? How do they feel about sexy bodies? What’s the difference in visions and thoughts on body and sexuality between western and eastern culture? In this talk, Huang Yingying and Zhu Xueqin, an expert in sex and gender studies, will share their thoughts on sexuality and body from the perspectives of sociology.
