It sounds like something out of a movie, but Chinese star Ziyi Zhang is now the real-life subject of a prostitution scandal in Hong Kong. Ziyi is under official investigation following charges that she accepted cash from high-ranking officials to hide the dragon in her crouching tiger, with prominent Chinese businessman Xu Ming allegedly acting as her pimp.
A night with Ziyi don't come cheap, either- according to the report, one client, Chinese Minister of Commerce Bo Xilai, allegedly paid 10 million Chinese yuan (over $1.5 million US) for just one encounter with the mega-star, a privilege for which he ponied up (pun intended) at least 10 times between 2004 and 2007, according to the same source.
Overall, Ziyi is accused of raking in around 700 million yuan ($109,895,362.08 at today's price in US dollars) over the past ten years. That's over a hundred million dollars earned the very old-fashioned way. And you thought doing commercials in Asia was lucrative!
The 3D titty flick 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy was a huge box-office hit across Asia...so big that a sequel is already in the works.
And like any savvy producer would, franchise mastermind Stephen Shiu Jr. is making the sequel bigger than its predecessor. How big? He's inventing a whole new dimension for it. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves for the softcore skinsation of a lifetime... 4D Sex and Zen: Slayer of a Thousand from the Mysterious East.
What's 4D? We have no idea. But rest assured, whatever it is, it's going to involve a whole lot of jiggling.
If Chinese sexploitation is anything like Chinese takeout, the Sex and Zen 3D: Extreme Ecstasy trailer, while briefly satisfying, just left you hungry for more. Well, you're in luck!
Hong Kong director Cash Chin, who helmed such Category 3 (that's Cantonese for "NC-17") classics as The Fruit is Swelling, Sex & Chopsticks and Sex & Zen 2, is already following in 3D Sex and Zen's wildly profitable footsteps with the 3D titty flick The 33D Invader. It's basically The Terminator, only instead of Ah-nold we get the adorable Wu Qing-Qing (seen at left), a nude time traveler who comes from the future on a mission to collect sperm. Natasha Henstridge would be so proud.

With the franchise reboot 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy about to make hooter history by blowing 3D loads all over Asia's theater screens, we here at Skin Central thought we'd take a moment to offer a one-handed salute to one of the most skintillating seductresses of the Asian persuasion: Chinese eye candy Qi Shu.
In Hong Kong, where the Taiwanese Qi Shu got her start, "X" rated films, known locally as "Category III", play alongside family fare in mall megaplexes. In the 1990s, almost half of the films made in Hong Kong had this rating. Category III films are not ghettoized into different movie theaters, video stores or even awards shows from "mainstream" fare; in 1994 actor Anthony Wong won the Hong Kong equivalent of the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in the Category III horror shocker The Untold Story.
Category III films come in two basic flavors: gratuitous violence and gratuitous sex. Some, like Horrible High Heels(1996), combine the two. The light, comedic Sex and Zen series is firmly in the "sex" column. Based on a 17th century dirty novel called The Carnal Prayer Mat, the Sex and Zen films feature lavish set design and elaborate period costumes that evoke the horny old days of ancient China. The costumes quickly come off, however, for acrobatic sex scenes that will put the crouching tiger in your hidden dragon.
Sex and Zen 2 chronicles the adventures of a man with one overwhelming obsession: to be the best lover in the world. A noble quest, to be sure. But he has one mammoth-mammed obstacle to overcome first: Qi Shu, in her very first nude role, as a demonic creature made hot, hot flesh who schtups everything she sees in order to drain its life force. In other words, she's a vampire who fucks instead of sucks.
Over the course of the film, Qi kills an entire family with her bone-sucking sexual powers, before the daughter of the clan gets her revenge in the breast way possible: by bumping clams with the creature. For if Qi orgasms first during her predatory pooning, she loses her powers. Poor girl.
Qi Shu has covered up somewhat since making the transition to Hollywood films like The Transporter, but in her day, she was hotter than a five-pepper Schezuan curry and nuder than a plucked chicken in a Chinese grocer's window. Before appearing in Category III films, she posed nude for the Chinese editions of both Playboy and Penthouse. She was only 19 when she made Sex and Zen 2, and the nubile delights of her B-cup boobies and neat little bush are enough to give any man yellow fever. Just don't freak out when you see her monstrous demon dildo during the climactic scissor sister showdown.

Sexciting things are abreast on the skinternational front, with filmmakers in Hong Kong preparing for the splashy theatrical release of 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, a big-budget titty flick being touted as the world's first 3D IMAX porn.
The film is based on the 1991 "Category III" (that's Chinese for "X") erotic film Sex and Zen, an adult comedy set in China's mythical past that combines the high-flying acrobatics of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with the uninhibited humping of late-night Skinemax.
Writer and producer Steven Shiu said that the film is an experience that will blow your mind as well as your load: he says the "very graphic sex scenes" will "leave audiences feeling like they are sitting right there at the edge of the bed."
The film stars Japanese "AV" (adult video) stars Saori Hara and Yukiko Suho and Chinese softcore sexpot Vonnie Lui as the horniest courtesans in ancient China baring all three B's on a series of elaborately outfitted sets. Shiu promises group sex, oral sex, sadomasochism, and religious sexstasy.
The party poopers at mainland China's censorship board don't look kindly upon excessive displays of skin, so 3d Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy will most likely be heavily cut for its release on the mainland. But NPR reports that five travel groups from mainland China have booked horny holidays in Hong Kong specifically to see the movie, and advance ticket sales of the film show up to 100,000 people may make the trek.
No word yet on whether 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy will be released in the US, but if the film is a success in Asia- it it looks like it will be- hopefully it will skinspire Western filmmakers to do the same. 3D remake of Deep Throat, anybody?... read more
