Chinese Views of ‘Sex and the City’

Our Chinese friends here and in Taiwan all know this show. “…it’s pretty well-known among China’s college students and young professionals, thanks to pirated DVDs and online copies.

“…”Sex and the City” never aired in China, it did inspire a 32-episode series called “Really Really Want to be in Love” … It’s a shameless copy of the HBO show, minus the sex part. (Pirated copies of “Sex and the City” are titled “Desire City” because most people in China would be appalled by a TV show with the word “sex” in its name.)”

“‘I believe “Sex and the City” is a typical story about the mainstream white society.'”
