It is actually remarkable how drastically women's social status changed in the past 60 years.
Chinese women never change their names after marriage, since the beginning of history.

[quote=noeducc11;33641068]The Chinese themselves do not trust made in china products too. Many chinese like to buy products from developed countries when they can afford them. They believe they are better than the China made products.
[quote=botticelli;33599596]
Typical westerners have this stigma: because China is not a "democratic" country, so everything happening there must not be good, and people must live miserably. If china builds subways faster, the quality must be questionable, if they have the tech to have high speed trains, they must have stolen the technologies, things like that.
Everything is made in China these days. Including apple products.

Asian guys growing background is different from white guys. In western world, white guys have sex in 15 or 16 or early 20s. However, Asian guys, are not and Asian culture won't embrace sex until marriage. They usually struggle when they are young, they need to get into hard competition for college, for job, and for everything. When they reach a matured age, they feel like they do not have a great young memory life like white guys (I am sure 90% of Asian man won't have their first sex until 20, even 22, but white guys may have sex before 18). So, when they reach 30s or later, they may want to seeking something fun, in the other word, seeking mistress to "compensate" their tough young age.

Even in America, Asian guys have the similar feeling, there almost no girls interested in Asian guys. So, they are constrained in young age, so, at the 30s or 40s, they are big customer for Sugar Baby something like that..

Most men and women for that matter in East Asian now have sex before marriage. The average age to lose virginity is like 18-19 in places like Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan.

I also wanted to point out that as far as feminism goes in China, well, you see women working construction sites, as trash collectors, and other lower-level manual labor jobs that are almost exclusively male in the West. I realized very quickly after moving here and working almost entirely with women, that the idea of a man automatically carrying the physically-heavier load by virtue of his being a man is not anywhere near as entrenched as it is in the West; women and men are generally expected to carry equal burdens.

As Mao said, "Women hold up half the sky."

The sex culture of younger generation in Mainland China have changed now, and more western than before. Chinese youths in general marry and have children earlier than people in western countries. Not all Chinese young men aim for college or good career, most just do low-skill jobs after leaving high school. Most youth don't have lots of fun mainly due to low income, typical for a developing country. When people have money, they entertain, play or easily attract opposite sex.

In Asia, most girls show interest in Asian guys, so they are not constrained in youth. The main problem is they don't have much money or social experience.

Generally, the age for both boys and girls is actually earlier, at some time during their high school years, and non-Muslim SE Asian countries also have the same pattern.

I've noticed that throughout Asia. Women doing heavy lifting and working construction and manual jobs from China to India and everywhere in between. In rural areas women also do a lot of the same tough work as men. So in that sense they're more equal, although a lot of these labourers both women and men are sort of exploited too. I think this whole women can't get her hands dirty attitude is a holdolder of the Victorian era as well. The idea of women being all housewives is actually a mostly western post 1800 sort of idea of the middle class.

Yes...there are maps that show average age of first having sex but they don't give a good idea since in a lot of African and Middle Eastern countries they marry very young (in their teens) on average.
