A man in Shanghai has been sentenced to five months in administrative detention for organizing an orgy for himself and seven other men in Xuhui district, the local court said Tuesday.
The eight men were aged from 20 to 40 and were engaging in homosexual group sex before being discovered by police naked in a hotel room, Xuhui District People's Court said yesterday according to Shanghai Daily.
The group organizer, surnamed Wu, is a married man with a doctorate who had a child with his wife, the documents said. He began by posting information via QQ, an online chatting tool, to seek a gathering of gays in September. After vetting the men via video chats, Wu invited them to the hotel.
On September 7, Wu booked a hotel room in Xuhui District and told the others. Wu played gay porn videos on his laptop whilst he waited. When the others arrived, they had a bath and had sex until the arrival of police, who had received a report about the meeting.
The only other information given was that most of the men were well-educated. The court said that two had doctorates and four had master's degrees or were graduate students. Some were married. Two came to Shanghai specifically for the orgy.
Wu was sentenced to five months of administrative detention, which is less serious than jail time, for organizing and engaging in the group sex. The others did not get detention but were given administrative penalties that were not disclosed for engaging in group sex.
In Nanjing in 2010 a gay orgy sparked an investigation into ‘homosexual licentiousness’ in which nearly a dozen were questioned.
