Former Chinese State TV Broadcaster Sen Luo Arrested For Possessing “Extreme Porn”

Jan Meza porn star

We know porn’s a no-no in China, but did you know that in its “extreme” form it’s also illegal in Britain? One former CCTV presenter does — now that he’s facing up to three years in prison.

“Sen Luo, 40, had more than 800 videos on his laptop and hard-drives and claimed he needed them to ‘research’ a Sex and the City-style book,” according to The Sun. “But jurors found him guilty of two counts of possessing extreme pornography.”

This being The Sun, we’re treated to paragraphs such as these:

Investigating Detective Constable Kim Negus had told the Old Bailey in London that she had to view Luo’s videos with the sound turned down to cut out the screams of the women.

She said: “These videos were disgusting and distressing. I viewed around 18 of them and had to have the sound down.”

Tell me more, Constable Kim.

“They featured oriental women but it is impossible to say how they came to be used for these images.”

The Littlehampton Gazette added, not sure why, “The jury was told that some showed women strapped to machines and tortured with electrodes, pins being pushed into their breasts or hot wax poured into their body.”

Luo will be sentenced next month.

So who is he, exactly? According to SCMP:

Also known by the name Edward Law, Luo joined CCTV as a presenter on the network’s BizChina show in 2003 after a career in corporate finance. His CCTV blog was last updated in July 2003.

According to CCTV’s website, Luo was born in London and worked for several financial firms including Prudential and Standard Chartered. He was posted to Hong Kong during the Asian financial crisis.

He left China for the United Kingdom in 2008 and settled in Dover, Kent.

Should’ve stayed in China, where there’s the occasional free public porn show.

And now, your supplemental literary reference: David Foster Wallace’s “Big Red Son,” found in Consider the Lobster:

THE AMERICAN ACADEMY of Emergency Medicine confirms it: Each year, between one and two dozen adult US males are admitted to ERs after having castrated themselves. With kitchen tools, usually, sometimes wire cutters. In answer to the obvious question, surviving patients most often report that their sexual urges had become a source of intolerable conflict and anxiety. The desire for perfect release and the real-world impossibility of perfect, whenever-you-want-it release had together produced a tension they could no longer stand.

It is to the 30+ testosteronically afflicted males whose cases have been documented in the past two years that your correspondents wish to dedicate this article. And to those tormented souls considering autocastration in 1998, we wish to say: “Stop! Stay your hand! Hold off with those kitchen utensils and/or wire cutters!” Because we believe we may have found an alternative.

Unhealthy quantities of porn is that alternative.
