If you have ever written or read a doctoral Dissertation you quickly realize how this book was conceived. Too much editorial commenting concerning the the battle between the sexes in modern China gets boring. With prostitution as the main independent variable in the study, it is surmised by the author as the vehicle to marriage and upward social mobility. Filial obligation also presented as a reason for prostituting oneself in the karaoke bars. What I do find fascinating is the courage of the author to engage in the bars with the customers and the hostesses.
