55 year old Ma Yaochun (马尧春) is going to be associated with “the crime of group licentiousness” (“聚众淫乱罪”) becoming a footnote of the history.

Because of the alleged criminal licentiousness, the former associate professor of an unnamed university in Nanjing is being prosecuted at Qinhuai District Prosecutorial office. The trial will begin on April 7, Ma faces up to five years in prison, if convicted he will become the first person receiving a sentence for “the crime of group licentiousness” in the past 20 years.

Since last September he was under surveillance, Ma’s life only consisted of two things, smoking and browsing the web. He sat on the sofa, hunched his back, and stared at his computer screen. His notebook computer placed on a wooden chair, a black cup filled with cigarette butts placed on its left, looked like an incense burner. The room was filled with smoke. During the 5 hour interview, he finished smoking a pack of “Lushan”.

Looked haggard and anxious, he has already been associated with words like “group licentiousness” and “swinger”.

Ma Yaochun said, he is not the one of kind monster, and “swinger” is also a life style that should not have been guilty.

However, many people do not understand this kind of sex life. “Swingers” in any case cannot be accepted.

“Not forceful, nor organizing”

In the Two Conferences, NPC and CPPCC, on March 3, scholar Li Yinhe proposed to abolish the crime of criminal licentiousness. She pointed out that the crime of group licentiousness is seriously out of date. “In the past twenty years, this law actually was not implemented; we almost don’t have one sentencing case.” (Read more about this at China Geeks) However, just one week later, on March 10, Ma Yaochun received the indictment, the charge was group licentiousness.

Indictment said “From the summer of 2007 to August 2009, Ma Yaochun organized or participated in group licentiousness activities 18 times, his action constitutes a violation of the PRC Criminal Law, number three hundred and first article, and will be prosecuted with the crime of group licentiousness.”

Although many times participated in the swinger’s parties, Ma Yaochun’s for this first time heard of this crime when he was arrested by the police on August 21, 2009. Now, he is understands what he is facing. “Criminal Law” number three hundred and first article states, gathering a group engage in licentious activities, the organizer and the frequent participators are subject up to five years of imprisonment, criminal detention or under surveillance.

Ma Xiaochun said, he would not plead guilty. He said there was indeed group licentiousness, but he was not seeking stimulation, this is just their way of life. There is not forcing, nor organizing.

Ma, in front of the reporter was calm in regard to the reactions of calling him abnormal on the internet.

“I don’t care; it does not matter not even a bit. I don’t think the word abnormal has a meaning of cursing or insulting. You have your way, and I have my way. I feel my life is indeed abnormal, and not the same as ordinary people’s. But you can’t call it a crime just because you dislike it.”

Some experts and scholars believe, Ma Xiaochun is not abnormal, nor should he be convicted.

March 23, Li Yinhe published “Who will protect Professor Wang’s sexual rights” (before this Ma Yaochun’s alias was Wang Honggao) blog post, said that “the rights for citizens in the privacy of their own places engaging sexual activities should be protected by the constitution.”

Li Yinhe said “It does not hurt anyone. Swinging sexual activities loved only by a few people in the society.”

Beijing Forestry University Institute for Sex and Gender Fang Gang showed support to Ma.

March 16, Fang Gang published blog post “to call attention to ‘Professor Wang’ the case of ‘group licentiousness’”, said “personal sexual behavior is part of human rights, a developed society should not intervene people’s personal choice of their sex lives.”

Fang Gang said “group licentiousness is a word used in exiting criminal law, it has a bad reputation.”

Ma Yaochun’s Swinging path

To many (Chinese) people, the word “swinger” appeared over night with “Abnormal Ma Yaochun”. Actually it is not true. On Ma’s life, many things already surfaced in the swingers’ world.

Ma Yaochun was introduced to this lifestyle as early as 2002 when he officially ended his second marriage. His second wife was a nightmare in his mind. Ma told the long and detailed story of meeting people in the swingers circle after that, which I am not going to translate. Let’s skip to the incidents of 22 people’s “group licentiousness”.

Ma Yaochun does not think swinging will destroy a family. He often admires the couple he met on his first swinging experience. He thinks that their relationship is very good.

“2006 valentine’s day they came to Nanjing, the guy asked me if I can find some people. He said he wanted to give his wife a Valentine’s Day gift.” Ma Yaochun thought he wanted him to buy some things, “He didn’t mean that, he said to find some men, ‘powerful’ men.”

Later Ma did not find anyone. In the end the Valentine’s Day present was the husband, Ma Yaochun and the wife’s old lover. Ma thought this couple’s emotional intimacy has reached to amazing point.

That year, something significant happened to the swingers’ circle. In October, one policewoman Su was interviewed by a website about sex. She exposed her swinging experience and later was fired. And Su had another identity; she was the founder of one of the biggest couple’s dating (swingers) site in China.

This is swingers circle’s spring thunder, swinging has entered ordinary people’s visions.

This incident created more and more swingers websites, and at the same time Ma was more interested in swinging on QQ.

“The end of 2006, Nanjing had many swingers group” Ma recalled, these groups rejected him, “must have sex photos and videos of the couple in order to join, I could not join. I was kicked out once they viewed the video. Sometimes I lied to them, said I have a wife, she was out of town, they said your wife is not coming, then kicked me out.”

Therefore Ma created his own QQ group. Not for long this group attracted 190 netizens. Most members were from other swingers QQ group.

According to the investigation, in the 22 people alleged “criminal licentiousness”, more than 10 people were members of this group. Their first party was held in Ma’s home, in the summer of 2007.

According to the indictment, the summer of 2007, Ma Yaochun and his friends engaged “group licentious activities” total 8 times, 7 of which were in Ma’s home. Ma Yaochun was the oldest and with the highest educational background of all the suspects.

Ma Yaochun said, there were no strong pleasures in these parties, nor any stimulation. “The scene was not like what outside people think, first get naked and then go crazy.” Even if we play SM, to them it’s only part of life, just like “as calm as watching a flower bloom”.

    Pretty sad and backward he could go to prison for this. Not as bad as Saudi Arabia at least, right?

  2. b-real says:

    Man that sucks, so you can’t even participate in sex. Take everything away. What’s next singles sex parties becoming illegal. Can’t go out on dates. They have police monitor singles who date and screw on the same night? Or couples who boink out of wed lock?

  3. b-real says:

    Ok Ok I read it again, I can see where they criminalized it. They organize sex parties. Which in its self is illegal in china. They break parties up like this in the states because its a public health issues, but its not necessarily illegal when its amongst consenting adults.

  4. caligula says:

    Swapping partners was also a recreational pursuit of the ancient Romans which led to the eventual fall of the empire. The party sees a valedictory lesson: the link between decadence and the end of days.

    • Crystal says:

      Hehe… I remember reading an article which named about hundred of different reasons ever mentioned in the literature to be responsible for the fall of ancient Rome (including, for example, the lead pipes used for aqueducts).

  5. GuoBao says:

    What a load of bull. I am not into that myself but to criminalize people who are is just plain wrong. Wonder if China has a system a la the US where judges occasionally can judge against the law because it is unconstitutional. Yes,, China does in fact have a constitution and it is breached by hundreds of laws but nobody seems to want to do something about it.

    I also wonder what the boundaries of the stupid law are. Is it illegal to engage in threesomes? I know that’s not unheard of amongst the 90’s generation and I know a couple of foreigners here who supposedly have done it in China. Should they brace for a knock on the door?

    Anyway here is a chance for the CCP to change a law that takes individual freedom away from the people without risking the backlash they suspect changing other similar laws would. Go for it. Show that China indeed can step forward.

  6. georgeson says:

    First, Ma broke the law in China.

    Second, swinger is not accepted by Chinese culture and morality.

    Glad to see Ma enjoying his prison life.

  7. Eason says:

    What is “Chinese morality”? Selling your soul for money or material possessions?

    • georgeson says:

      There are a lot of writers of Chinese race but not necessarily Chinese citizenship on this website who are making it basically an anti-china website. Any different opinion from a small portion of Chinese writers is considered here as a trade of soul for money. The most usual personal mark on these minority is the ‘5-mao’ party.

      Unfortunately, you guys overestimate the English reading and writing ability of real ‘5-mao party’ guys.

  8. John says:

    Since when does China not want people to have sex? It has the highest population of horny people on the planet. What a joke. Sounds like one of these guys had sex with the wrong party official’s girlfriend. LOL. Right?

    • Jason says:

      highest population of horny people? WTF? Because there are 1.3 Billion people in China?

      • Eason says:

        Because stupid fucking farmers killing their daughters, China has a huge imbalance of more men than women. Not to mention, most of the men are worthless to the women anyway.

      • John says:

        Yes. 10 points for figuring out the math.

  9. white rice says:
