Chinese erotic novelist jailed for 10 years for gay sex scenes
A Chinese writer has been given a 10 year sentence for writing and selling a novel which featured gay sex scenes. The writer, identified as Liu, was jailed by a court in Anhui province last month for producing and selling “obscene material”. Her novel, titled “Occupation”, featured “male homosexual behaviour… includes perverted sexual acts like violation and abuse.” But her lengthy jail term has sparked protest across Chinese social media. According to the Beijing News, Liu – better known by her online alias Tian Yi – has now filed an appeal to the court. Pornography is illegal in China. On 31 October, Liu was sentenced to jail by the People’s Court of Wuhu for making and selling “obscene material” for profit, according to local news site Wuhu news.
