Chinacartimes did protracted research, quite literally into the dark underbelly of the Chinese car culture. As it turns out, the Chinese have not only eclipsed America as the world’s largest car market. They also found out that the car can be used for other things than driving. The know-how developed by us eons ago on lover’s lane, and in drive-ins, has been unabashedly ripped off by the Chinese who are getting at it in their cars.

The matter is all over Chinese websites, along with maps. This page shows Qingdao’s own top spots, which Chinacartimes head honcho Ash Sutcliffe (who lives there) failed to investigate in person. Travellers to Shanghai are treated to favorite spots of vehicular nookie. No big city is without a suitable dark corner.

Even Chinese celebrities are getting in on the sex act. Don’t they have a home? China’s top director Gu Zhang Wei was caught by Southern Daily journalists with an unnamed lady in a Mercedes Viano. Chinese basketball player Sun Rui was caught slam-dunking it with a mysterious young lady in a Mercedes GL. Most likely to the tunes of “Here comes the Sun.”

I was about to make snide remarks that the Chinese have a good ways to go. In Germany, “Parkplatzsex” (parking place sex) stands for two activities: Either finding willing couples for swapping something else than tires. Or doing it in the car while horny voyeurs are rubbing their nose (and whatnot) on the windshield. Or possibly both. But I could spare my comments. Mr. Sutcliffe called the in-car entertainment “dogging”, which – as he was informed – was the British term for sex in a car. He was promptly informed by his commentariat that “dogging” is the UK variant of “Parkplatzsex.”

    Not surprising in such a crowded country. They have much less opportunity for indoor and outdoor privacy.

    So when do we see tacky Chinese minivans with cheesy murals painted on the side and airliner track lighting hidden in the shag carpeting? How do you say “10-4, good buddy” in Mandarin?

    Germans always have been a kinky bunch.

    “The know-how developed by us eons ago on lover’s lane, and in drive-ins, has been unabashedly ripped off by the Chinese…”. Just another example of automobile IP theft.

    People have been fooling around in cars since the curved-dash Olds, and maybe before. A testament to the eternal perspicacity of human procreation.

    My takeaway from this article is how expressive and functional German is compared to English. We have no equivalent to “Parkplatzsex”, how can that be?

      In America, we just call it “sex.” Possibly also “back-seat boinking.”

      What I want to know is, what kind of sex to Britons have to call car sex “dogging”? If doing it on the carpet is shagging…

      YOU ARE WRONG! It has absolutely nothing to do with procreation. I may like to have sex, does not mean I want to have babies. The fact that I enjoy sex does not mean I want to shell out money to take care of babies. Only older generations think like that. I presume you are one of the Baby Boomers that think like that, since you drive Olds.

        One might argue that the desire for sex is an evolutionary device to encourage procreation, but that’s for a different blog… Regardless, you’re right ghent: one can enjoy the spacious back seat of an Oldsmobile with the partner of your choice, without wanting (or even considering) babies.

        However, although I have owned a few used Oldsmobiles, I am not a baby boomer, I’m the generation after that. The curved dash Olds I reference I think was from 1906 or so, before both of our times…

    The Chinese have it easy! The whole “here we are at lover’s lane and the car broke down” ploy is way more plausible when you’re driving a Chinese made car.

    “Parkplatzsex” – I love German logic. Wonderful. It’s a bit like when naming a road to a new airport, why find some silly name of some vaguely important person when you can just call it “Flughafenstrasse”.
    And FYI, “Dogging” doesn’t always take place within the car. Don’t ask me how I know, I just know. OK?

    As a happy survivor of the 60s, I have oh so fond memories of many nights at the drive-in movies in Southern California.

    It would seem there is an opportunity in China for a chain of drive-in movies there.

    Or possibly both

    I believe that dogging usually involves both activities. It’s always surprised me about the number of men who get off on watching their wives/GFs in sexual abandon with other men. But then I’ve never quite understood the Howard Stern watching two girls go at it thing either. If a woman is going to be sexually adventurous, I’d rather be a participant than an observer. I want her to f my brains out, not some other zhlub’s.

    Hey, first time for me was in a 1975 Pontiac Ventura, the year was 1975 – November 1st. Like they say in American Pie – you never forget your first piece!

    That was about all that car was good for too.
