Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Yes, and Western Europe is about the size of the Eastern half of China.

And...?

Two foreigners caught out on TV

Postby streaminme » 21 Jun 2002, 16:44

I once saw a post on line saying one taiwanese girl got fucked up by five westerners. One of those pick up her and played fivesome in front of her quite often. It also said that before she was innocent, and now she is in that fun stuff too. So she got corrupted.

Someone I know went back home because she was raped by a local cab driver. She was pissed and grabbed a cab on her way back.

It is a stereotype saying that western culture is dominant comparing to ours, but as a prevailing adoring attitude towards westerners here, most of them do affect us in a way.

You ever saw an old gross letch with a stunning cute taiwanese girl? Maybe they are just doing some language exchange.

There's a friend speaking pidgin English with heavy accent but he still got a decent job teaching English just because he is white. Anyhow I cannot deny that Caucasians are cuter although they smell pungent. Sometimes we still get the unfair feeling why everything seems easy to them, girls, money, etc.

It takes two to get involved. Just be nice and open-minded. And wankers are still wankers no matter what language they speak.

the link is to a show about girls picking up white guys at bars.

Yeah, right: a link to a "Geraldo-like" TV show quoting a very small number of white guys who are not likely to be taken seriously by native speakers (I think there's some sarcasm going on here for at least part of the answers), plus (of course!) first-hand interviews with some ICRT DJ who does nothing more than say fairly general things about how he likes brown eyes, he likes Asian girls (now, those ICRT guys are clearly representative of Westerners in general!) The Drunken Foursome in the bar who are interviewed are limited in expressing themselves in Chinese (obviously!) and I doubt whether the Chinese editors and interviewers could tell the difference from them taking the piss out of the questions and giving a "real" response (although they'd had a few already and anyway they're four guys in a bar, what do you expect)? I mean, what's a guy in a bar going to say when asked, "Do you like Taiwanese girls?" "Well, I always evaluate women based on their overall characteristics, personality, and so on..." yeah right! I'm sure I could get four drunken Taiwanese men in a KTV somewhere to say exactly the same thing on tape about Western women without too much trouble, but I might have more difficulty if I went to interview, say, university faculty or computer programmers.

Overall, not exactly an insightful piece of social investigation. But worthwhile if only to watch the long-haired foreigner (some kind of aerobics instructor? hard to tell -- probably famous and I'm not recognizing him, but he has good Mandarin) try to explain how sex is something deeply spiritual for him.

I wonder about the effect of having a "xiaojie"like Taiwanese female interviewer do these interviews, too...?

Amateur sociology, cheap and endlessly fascinating.

Man are you out of touch with reality. Many Afircan Americans hate Amerikkka and DO NOT BLEND IN. How many mixed communities can you introduce to me in Amerikkka?

Just the one name, Jeff, like Madonna or Cher. His Mandarin IS excellent - I'm so jealous. He's pretty famous in Taiwan, and a lot of the girlies think he's hot. According to local gossip, however, he bats for the other team, so to hear him talk about the virtues of Taiwanese women is like listening to a blind man describing the sunset!

Well, if his sexual prowess is anything like the quality of his English teaching books, I don't think its much of a loss for those of us of the female persuasion. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
