Red Light Revolution (RLR) is the story of an ordinary man defying all the odds to make it big in China’s newest, most unorthodox industry…with a humorous look at Chinese tradition colliding with modern sexual values.

Sam has kindly volunteered to kick us off:

For RLR, I spent two weeks, about 18 hours a day, locked in a sex shop with 20 cast and crew. As sex toys can’t be advertised in China the producers enlisted the help of a national retailer who was after a bit of unconventional product placement. We loaded up an entire truck with wobbly willies, double pronged vibrators, jiggling vaginas, even a mermaid blow-up doll that must have been from the X-rated version of “Splash.” Soon people were finding other creative ways of using the toys.  Our lead actor entertained the factory workers next door by doing skits with a dildo stuck to his head.

After the shoot wrapped, we gave out free sex toys to the cast and crew, but we still had heaps of toys left over.  So we enlisted the help of Chinese artists to turn the toys into original works of art, which we auctioned off to support the film festival drive.


Voila, the “Vibrating Jello.” It shakes and blinks, but unfortunately it short-circuited in the jelly.  Not very encouraging—a vibrator that doesn’t work under wet conditions? Yikes.

This work is called Flora Labia, complete with vibrating stamen.


The “Rocket”: Made from 99 silver painted dildos,

So that’s my sex shop story. I’ll be doing a Q&A after the screening with more sex shop anecdotes, and we’ll be bringing our blow up doll, Candy, from China (if she can get past customs). Just post your sex shop story below and MoSex’ll choose the most “memorable” winner. Hope to catch you at the screening. For more info, visit the Friars Club website.

Thank you, Sam!
