Vehicular Sex In China: Wake Up, Little Su Zhi, Wake Up

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.”

  • Probert There's something wrong with that chart. The 9 month numbers for Tesla, in the chart, are closer to Tesla's Q3 numbers. They delivered 343,830 cars in q3 and YoY it is a 40% increase. They sold 363,830 but deliveries were slowed at the end of the quarter - no cars in inventory. For the past 9 months the total sold is 929,910 . So very good performance considering a major shutdown for about a month in China (Covid, factory revamp). Not sure if the chart is also inaccurate for other makers.
  • ToolGuy "...overall length grew only fractionally, from 187.6” in 1994 to 198.7” in 1995."Something very wrong with that sentence. I believe you just overstated the length by 11 inches.
  • ToolGuy There is no level of markup on the Jeep Wrangler which would not be justified or would make it any less desirable [perfectly inelastic demand, i.e., 'I want one']. Source: My 21-year-old daughter.
  • ToolGuy Strong performance from Fiat.
  • Inside Looking Out GM is like America, it does the right thing only after trying everything else.  As General Motors goes, so goes America.
