China's Sexual Revolution

Everyone’s heard about China's Cultural Revolution and its sizzling Economic Revolution. This documentary presents a candid look at the latest revolution transforming the country: a red-hot sexual revolution. The days of Chairman Mao’s great taboos about sexuality are a thing of the past, as a great social upheaval, like everything in that country, is happening at warp speed. It's China's version of the 60s revolution - on steroids. CHINA'S SEXUAL REVOLUTION is the world's first glimpse into this permissive new China. It's a surprising portrait of the Chinese today: the new free love generation that's left their parents in shock; the booming sex industry that's creating an HIV crisis; the new generation of career women and feminists that suddenly wants it all - while millions of unmarried men feel left out. China’s sexual libido, bottled up for 50 years, is bursting loose, with dramatic effects on marriage, personal freedom and the government itself. Will the Sexual Revolution succeed where the Tiananmen one failed?
