Inside Dongguan A Chinese 'city of sex' and polygamy

Dongguan, in south China’s Guangdong Province, is known for producing popular electronics such as iPhones and iPads - and also acting as the Chinese 'capital of sex'.

Whereas you and I might believe in monogamy (and even no-gamy for those who can't seem to find partners), the term is almost alien to a south Chinese city called Dongguan.

The  city is literally busting at the seams with an incredible high ratio of women to men that it allows most men have two or three girlfriends.

ECONOMIC FACTORS

But it doesn't only mean that men can have more women. They can actually do even less.

According to Mirror.co.uk, "local factories running assembly plants prefer not to use men as they find them unreliable and instead offer work mainly to women."

This means that the man can not only have two or more girlfriends, but he can also have time for each of them. One man told local TV: "It is a lot easier here to find a girlfriend than a job."

The few men who do have jobs at the factories are in an even better position when it comes to finding a girlfriend, because most of the women end up spending long hours at work on the production lines.

CAPITAL OF SEX

The disproportionate number of women has recently led to Dongguan being branded the 'capital of sex' with many women still willingly and knowingly involving themselves in relationships with men who already have other partners.

Li Bin, a migrant factory worker from south-western Sichuan Province, speaking to the Mirror.co.uk said: "I have three girlfriends, and all of them know about each other. Many of my friends also have many girlfriends."

He added: "There are so many young and naive female workers in the city. Why not have more than one if we can? Look, everyone is here to have fun; if you don’t do it, others will."

However, this complex form of relationship does not seem to breed any rivalry as the Guangdong Women's Rights and Information Service, the women in Dongguan pretend not to know about other partners or simply ignore their existence; some of them are even colleagues in the same factory.

But they prefer the arrangement as it is better than being lonely, the women’s rights group said.

Most of the women in Dongguan will eventually return home to get married. The thought is that their lifestyle in the bustling 'capital of sex' is temporary, and simply a necessary evil.
