BEIJING: Nude business promotions have been banned in China, with
Beijing taking aim at naked shop models and restaurants where food is
served on the bodies of unclothed women, state media said Sunday.
The ban, issued last week by General Administration for Industry and
Commerce (GAIC), comes amid the increasing use of nudity or near
nakedness to advertise businesses, the Beijing Times and Xinhua news
In April a Japanese restaurant in the southwestern Chinese city of
Kunming came under fire for its promotional "feast on a beauty's body",
in which sushi was served to customers on a naked woman.
The restaurant was later banned from offering such meals. The GAIC was
also alarmed by the rising use of nude models in shops, particularly in
the more wealthy eastern coastal cities such as Wenzhou and
Zhaoqing, and restaurants serving breast milk. "Such activities are in
violation of common decency and humiliate the human being," Xinhua
reported the GAIC as saying.
A restaurant in central China's Hunan province* stirred controversy two
years ago when it offered what was billed as the country's first ever
"breast milk" banquet.
*Hunan province -- mmm ...
What archives store those pictures of smiling young peasant women
reaping wheat in fields under blue skies?
