CHINA'S TOP 10 SEX-RELATED NEWS STORIES

Danwei is back from the holidays, but lagging way behind the China Daily in covering sexy stories in the Chinese media. There's this:

"SEX-CHANGE WOMAN GETS MARRIED
The first Chinese woman to have a sex change operation tied the knot Tuesday and received a marriage certificate from the government, the Xi'an Evening Posts reported.

The 29-year-old, identified only as A-gang, was married to Xiaoli in a ceremony in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province on Tuesday."

The whole story is here. A sidebar on the page leads to this:

"CHINA'S TOP 10 SEX-RELATED NEWS STORIES IN 2003 UNVEILED
Scholars on sexology and sociology from the Renmin University of China and other institutions today unveiled the "top 10 sex-related news pieces in 2003" selected out by public votes."

You can find the whole thing here.

In an unrelated development, thanks to Kathie Li, most of the daily headlines from the last two weeks downtime are archived under the date of publication of the headlines.
