Behind the Red Door: Sex in China - CoverBehind the Red Door: Sex in China is the only book written for mainstream audiences that tells the story of sex in China from ancient times to the present.

Richard Burger, who has blogged about China for more than ten years and worked for the Chinese newspaper The Global Times, employs a journalistic approach to this complex subject, taking the reader on an engaging journey from the days when China’s rulers relied on shockingly vivid Daoist sex manuals to the present, where China is torn between sexual orthodoxy and Western-style openness.
