Research Question

      Sex is one of the most important, or indeed indispensable, part of our daily lives, however, in Hong Kong, people always refuse to talk about sex. In fact, sex seldom exists in the public domain and open discussion. It is interesting to note that the sexual openness of HongKongers seems to be ambiguous. Some claimed that there are still conservative thoughts toward sex in Hong Kong because of its Chineseness and condemned sex education system, while HongKongers are in fact progressive and open-minded. Therefore, in this research project, it is hoped to find out changes in their sexual openness by analyzing their consumption in sex shops, and examine if this embarrassment is led by the panopticon-like society.
