BEIJING: Twenty-two swingers have gone on trial in China, charged with ''group licentiousness'' in a case that has highlighted the transformation in the country's sexual attitudes.
The defendants, who include a university professor, company bosses and shop assistants, face up to five years' jail if convicted. They met online and were caught in a police trawl for cases, initiated when a policewoman discussed her enjoyment of orgies on a radio show. The case has stirred a debate over sexual freedom, with some arguing the law should be scrapped, particularly given that prostitution and extramarital affairs are now common in China.
The maths professor said to have organised events, Ma Xiaohai, 53, said he and the other participants did not know the law existed, Chinese media reported. The last conviction on the charge was 20 years ago. Swapping partners is like a bowl of sweet wine,'' Mr Ma reportedly said. Prosecutors said he set up an online wife-swapping chatroom that grew to include more than members. He has said he became involved because he was lonely and depressed after his second marriage broke down.
Fourteen men and eight women are standing trial in Nanjing over 22 encounters.
Police said Mr Ma organised 18 of the spouse-swapping events, 14 of them at his home. But he said he stopped three months before the police detained him, due to the ''abnormal'' behaviour of some participants and after several young women turned him down.
