Masks: late night sex show for Chinese TV

Well, not that kind of sex show. The China Daily reports, via "agencies":

A Beijing-based company will broadcast a nationwide late night TV program about sex next year, a rarity in a country where sex had been a strict taboo until recently.

The program, titled Masks, will be broadcast in more than 50 cities, including Beijing, between 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., a forum on sex and AIDS was told Sunday.

The program will be launched by the Beijing Shixi Media Co., which claims the program is first of its kind in China.

The program would have different people talking about sex, said Liu Xicheng, board chairman of Beijing Shixi.

Liu said the hosts of the program would also wear masks, without explaining why. Liu said he hoped the program would help people with sexual problems and promote safe sex.
