Now in it’s third year of operation, the Asia Adult Expo remains as unusual for south China as the day it opened, although perhaps not quite so novel.
Despite having taken the rather liberal step of legalizing prostitution, Macau remains a decidedly conservative local. The city’s night clubs and saunas do boast a significant population of women pursuing carnal sources of income but scant evidence of such activities is visible on the street. The sex industry may be a significant social and economic factor for the city but is really only publicly acknowledged three days out of the year at the expo.
Even so, some event attendees complained that the expo lacked the blatant sleaze, titillation and, well, entertainment value they had expected. Oh well…
