Asian Sirens’ admin, moderator, editor, tech guy, designer…

I have to admit to never having been a fan of Stephanie Shiu in the past (or most Chinese fashion models in general for that matter), but when I came across this video, I found it to be a beautiful piece of erotic art and had to share it with you. How do you feel about ‘arty’ eroticism like this?

As it doesn’t feature any Asian girls this video is technically off-topic, but if you want to be able to continue to enjoy sites like Asian Sirens at the same speed you always have, net neutrality is very much on topic. I can barely afford to run AS as it is, so I certainly won’t be able to pay extortion money to US cable operators to maintain its present speed. So if you’re one of our vast majority of US readers, stand up for a continued free, fair and open internet!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a humorous or discussion post, so when I came across this image on the interwebs, I thought I might share it with you. Is this an accurate reflection of the normal Asian female ageing process in your experience?

Most of the time I’d post this sort of thing to our Request ID thread, but I figured there was virtually no chance of identifying the model anyway, as she is more than likely some (lovely) amateur model who has so far only shot for Mary Kuzmenkova. And most importantly, I really wanted to share the entire set with you, as I feel it is a truly outstanding example of beautiful, seductive and artistic erotic photography.

VietJetAir—who were previously fined $1000 for an unauthorised bikini show—are not only still at it, but have now stirred up controversy for leaked photos featuring Viet supermodel (and the love of French‘s life) Ngọc Trinh. (I have to admit that she’s a favourite of mine too, and seemingly several of our readers as well.) Yes, they actually had the nerve to do a promotional shoot featuring models in bikinis in the airline’s colours—how outrageous! VietJetAir denies that the photos are official (or at least not yet—they say they haven’t yet decided if they’ll use them), or that the leakage of them was a publicity stunt.

Zhang Yuqi‘s fans can’t understand why her director husband Wang Quanan would buy sex when she is so gorgeous. Can you? Personally, I don’t find this surprising at all—I can easily imagine a few possible reasons as to why he might want to do this, but I don’t want to preempt the discussion. So over to you! I’ll have my say once we’ve heard a few of our readers’ opinions.

When Asian Sirens was first re-launched as a blog back in 2005, one of my first feature articles was Yang Liping. This was because of my enormous admiration for her—not just for her beauty (especially for her age), but most importantly for her unequalled artistic talent. IMHO, when it comes to dance, there’s Yang Liping, then there’s everybody else. And it seems I’m not the only one who feels this way, as an entire new generation of Chinese dancers have followed her example. I don’t really have anything to add to the text of my original article (apart from the sad news of her recent retirement), but I do have a lot to add in terms of pictures and—most importantly—videos, which simply weren’t available back then.

I was hoping this post would be to celebrate her winning a Geekie Award, but alas it was not to be. To make up for it, I’m awarding Kim Horcher Asian siren of the day.

Obviously, on a site such as this one, we republish lots of photos, which occasionally leads to the odd Copyright claim. Luckily, most people/companies are reasonable about this, and recognise the promotional value of our site (with one very big and famous exception). Our case is relatively straightforward though, as it is basically an internet version of a newspaper/magazine (which have fair use rights), and we promote our sources directly. But what about other new media, such as YouTube?

Super cute and highly successful video blogger Michelle Phan (featured here on our old site) has always made a point of supporting and promoting the music she uses in her videos, so she assumed she’d be safe. But apparently not—she’s being sued by Ultra Records, for the outrageous sum of $150,000 per infringement! This is in spite of the fact that at least one of the artists in question (Kaskade) are hugely supportive of Michelle, and greatly appreciate the free publicity she’s given them.

I should make it clear that I personally very strongly support the right of artists to be paid for their work. However, the sort of thing Michelle is doing is clearly a huge net benefit for the artists whose work she uses, as they themselves recognise. I therefore find this lawsuit absolutely outrageous and stupid. What do you think?
