Hong Kong Sex Festival promotes group marriages and sex
Posted by temasektimes on March 8, 2012
Sex with a single partner for the entire life is too boring and is responsible for the high divorce rates in Hong Kong, according to the organizers of the Fifth Hong Kong Sex Cultural Festival which advocates “polyamory”, a practice where individuals are consensually open to loving more than one person at a time.
“We hope the festival can open up the public’s views towards alternative systems of marriage because the traditional relationship between one man and woman is getting outdated,” founder Emil Ng Man-lun said.
With the theme “Sexuality Untied: Spatial, Social and Relational,” this year’s festival seeks to further society’s understanding of the multiple views of sexuality in order to promote tolerance and harmony in the community.
Ng added that group marriages is becoming a ‘viable’ option as partners in a monogamous relationship tend to experience a less fulfilling sex life and are likely to have extra-marital affairs.
The Global Post described “polyamory” as a form of loving, “genital-sharing” agreement with a small and trustworthy group of people.
