Post Archives: So You Took Your Mom To A Porn Convention?

I think you have to chalk up the experience that Marvin Xin Ku had with his mom at a porn convention to the fact that he grew up in Germany (because I feel like they have the market cornered on Golden Shower videos and if that says anything it says something) paired with his parent’s conservative Chinese upbringing, which led to them never talking about sex – ultimately leading to him taking his mom to a porn convention in Berlin, to talk about sex.

Might as well just go all out.

I should note here that while I grew up in Germany, my parents were raised in a very conservative Chinese culture—sex and sexual desire were taboo for them. And it seems to me that not much has changed over the years; when I visited Shanghai earlier this year, I noticed couples in the street avoiding any kind of public displays of affection. I spotted the occasional linked arm, but strictly no kissing or hand-holding. That trip made me wonder where that prudishness comes from and how it’s kept its hold on my parents. And the best way to find out, I figured, was to start an honest conversation about sex with my mother in a place where there would be no way to escape it.

While it may not be the way I would get the conversation started, seeing Marvin’s mom holding a really large dildo (in close proximity to naked porn boobs), helping to lead a slave around (and making sure that the slave was okay – because she’s still a mom), and going through the stacks of porn at the convention –  it did put a smile on my face and apparently got the conversation started.

I say bless that woman’s soul and the things she did for her son.
