City Jade Men

Definition - What does City Jade Men mean?

City jade men are young Chinese professionals who are the equivalent of what is known as the metrosexual in the West. These men value material possessions and their appearance, and will often spend a large amount of money on the latest fashions and skincare products to look their best. The male protagonists of erotic literature set in China are often city jade men.

The Chinese word for city jade men is Du Shi Yu Nan.

Kinkly explains City Jade Men

China has a rich history of erotic literature dating back at least to the 16th century. Notable texts like The Lord of Perfect Satisfaction, The Carnal Prayer Mat, and Jin Ping Mei helped pave the way for the erotic literature of today.

The city jade men in modern Chinese erotic literature are comparable to a character like Christian Grey of Fifty Shades of Grey fame. Like Grey, these city jade men are attractive, wealthy, and powerful; a thrilling combination for many women.

The popularity of city jade men in erotic literature reflects the real life adoration in China for these individuals.

  • We do not have to spend money and go hungry and struggle and study to become sensual; we always were. We need not believe we must somehow earn good erotic care; we always deserved it.
