Wlomen’s sexually explicit media and art forms in mainland China and Hong Kong, which contribute to pubic cultures of art, social media, and media activism, comprise a wide range of media that stretch beyond the more narrowly applied genre of commercially produced pornography. They are sometimes steeped in cultural heritage genres such as ancient erotic ghost stories, or they are developed around digital technologies and online databases such as the products of Japanese manga culture. At times, they embody an angry-activist dimension and posit a significant difference from globalized “male-stream” pornography. They are proposed by young women whose aesthetics and goals also differ from the matured Euro-American video genres of female-friendly, feminist, or queer-produced pornography.
