Sexy Beijing

One of my favorite channels on YouTube is Sexy Beijing. It's sort of like a documentary hosted by a Jewish American girl, Sophie, and loosely based on the style of Sex and the City. She goes around the city and sometimes out of it to find out more about the lives of people in modern day China and to occasionally find Mr. Right. Sexy Beijing is a very interesting take on contemporary Chinese life and gives its viewers a whole new, often funny, perspective of the middle kingdom.

This is one of my favorite episodes entitled "Lost In Translation". Sophie goes around Beijing asking the locals what their English nicknames are and most of them will make you snicker.
