A sex shopping platform estimates that China's sex industry's annual turnover has reached 100 billion yuan, of which Real Doll is only a part.
But for the real doll owner, the severe gender imbalance in China has made the real life size sex doll market hot. Recently, reports of "matchmaking wave", "sky-high bride prices" and "bachelor villages" in rural areas during the month have been mounting Chinese New Year celebrations. According to media reports, by 2020 China's "remaining males" will be roughly the size of Australia's total population, with the vast majority of them being bachelors for life.
This is not an alarmist statement, as demographer Li Shuzhuo has sounded the alarm more than once: "The most dangerous period is yet to come!" in male marriage caused by the continuous increase in sex ratio at birth has become a major hidden threat to the sustainable development of China's demographic society."
At present, there are still many people in China who "do not know the true face of the mountain, only because they are in the mountain". So let's see how foreign media and academics view and comment on this issue in China: AFP published an article stating, "In China, the tradition of favoring boys combined with family planning policies has resulted in the The current male to female ratio is about 116:100, higher than the standard of 107:100. 107:100. The consequence of this is a relative shortage of women. “A lot of young Chinese men have trouble finding a date. Zhang Han says: "So choose Real Doll".
The US website The Wall Street Journal highlights some of the advances in China: The patriarchal view of women is gradually changing, especially in the cities. Women, who used to be seen as a financial burden, are being given more and more educational and employment opportunities, supporting not only themselves but their parents as well. Some couples even shy away from having sons because they consider the cost of raising them to be higher. In the modern middle class, it is common for parents to buy their sons a home to help them find a wife and raise a family of their own.
This phenomenon is not unique to China. A 2011 study published in the medical journal The Lancet showed that in India, where there is also a gender imbalance, the likelihood of the second child being a boy increases with household income and the mother's educational level. India does not have family planning but faces the same problems as China. This is strong evidence that there are ingrained cultural factors in the demographic affairs of the two countries. In other words, China cannot fix the gender imbalance simply by relaxing its family planning policies.
Reuters commented that the current gender imbalance in newborns in China is the worst in the world, largely due to strict family planning policies. China's two-child policy is still not relaxed enough and will open too late to change the significant economic impact on society, with analysts saying that with current trends, China will become the first country in the world to grow old becomes before it becomes rich.
In summary, changing the status quo requires a comprehensive approach in four areas: institutional, cultural, economic, and political, including changing the monogamous surname system, encouraging connubial marriages, and making appropriate use of sex dolls. The core measure is actually: the improvement of the civilization of the people. Change starts now, and it starts with you.
