New rules and regulations render almost all media, TV and film, pornographic and unfit for public viewing. This new ruling from the State General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT) bans scenes containing a range of activities including one-night stands, extramarital affairs, excessive physical contact, sexual abuse, partner-swapping, flirtation, rape, incest, necrophilia, prostitution, sexual perversion and masturbation. A pretty thorough list to say the least. 

So pretty much 90 percent of films made throughout the history of cinema contain at least one of these lewd activities and these new sanctions will probably severely impact the amount of foreign content allowed on streaming sites across China. Though many of these regulations were in service to China's strict stance against pornographic content, these new additions have the possibility of censoring anything that wasn't created with these strict new stance for a purified cultural environment in mind. Once again, thanks to all that is holy for VPN services.
