The series’ attitude towards sex confuses me. On one hand it’s clearly not a socially conservative work, with its deconstruction of gender roles and groundbreaking (well, for its time) depiction of gay/bi characters. But when it comes to sex itself, it’s almost like something out of some abstinence-only propaganda (at least sleeping around is shown to be bad for both genders…?). I know this is a purely Western perspective, but I don’t have any other. :( WHAT ARE YOU SAYING IKUHARA?

That sex is either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

The traditional term for homosexuality in China is “the passion of the cut sleeve boys” (断袖之癖), so named from the story of Emperor Ai of Han (27 BCE - 1 BCE) and Dong Xian (23 BCE - 1 BCE). As the story goes, Emperor Ai fell in love with a minor official named Dong Xian. Dong Xian quickly gained the Emperor’s favor. One afternoon as they slept in bed, Emperor Ai woke up. Rather than wake his lover, he cut the sleeves of his robe to let his lover sleep longer. Homosexuality was regarded as a normal affair up until the late Qing dynasty when the government attempted to westernize the country.
