Guangzhou Sex Toy Market

Sex dolls are displayed in Guangzhou

Nestled up a small side street near the Guangzhou wholesale clothing market sits an unassuming tile-coated building. Housed inside are a few dozen shops peddling various types of “adult” paraphernalia; dildos, fake vaginas, and sex dolls line the walls of shops that are strikingly similar to those selling dried herbs in other parts of the city. Old women and small child roam the halls alongside a surprisingly diverse assortment of buyers.
