The only Orthodox church in Taiwan is Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, in Xindian. Its priest is Fr. Jonah, a heiromonk of Mt. Athos. I believe they have a group in Taizhong (with a reader, but no priest, unless Fr. Jonah visits) but not Tainan. Anyway, check with them:

“If a bodhisattva resides as a householder and there appears a woman who is clearly unbound to anyone, habituated to sexual indulgence, attracted to the bodhisattva and seeking sexual activities, the bodhisattva having seen this thinks, 'Do not make her mind upset, producing much misfortune. If she pursues her desire, she will obtain freedom. As expedient means [upaya] I will take her in and have her plant the roots for virtue, also having her abandon unwholesome karma. I will engage in impure activities [abrahma-carya] with a compassionate mind.' Even practising such defiled activities like this, there is nothing that is violated [precepts], and much merit will be produced." -- from the Yogācārabhūmi Śāstra

Here's another Orthodox Church in Taipei that opened recently. They have services in Chinese, Russian, and English.

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.
