When the rest of the world is all about maxi skirts, the latest sensation in China is “pussy high miniskirt”. So what is a “pussy high mini skirt” (齐B小短裙)?

[Background, B equals to 屄 (bi), which pronouncse the same as letter b and is a Chinese slang for female genitalia]

The story starts with a model and her sugar daddy. On March 13, 2012, when China National People’s Congress was still in session, a Weibo post by a model showing off her birthday celebration with her rich NPC delegate sugar daddy went viral among Chinese netizens.

 

In the post, this model called Zhou Rui attached a photo of her and a man wearing a Hermes belt. They were holding hands and cutting a birthday cake together.

“Thank you for always being in my life. And thank you for sqeenzing our birthday celebration into your busy NPC schedule. Also thank calligraphy master Li Min for writing for us – Forever in love and always be close. And thank you all for your blessings. I’m so happy to have you guys in my life!”

 

Suspicion exploded due to the implication that this “Hermes sugar daddy” may be a NPC delegate. Corrupt officials’ mistresses have been one of the focal points of government scandals in the past year. Many even say that thanks to these mistresses who love to show off, more corrupt officials have been exposed in recent years.

But a corrupt official and his mistress won’t make it to the headline in China because it is so commonplace. The highlight came when netiznes tried to look into Zhou’s Weibo posts for clues of who this “Hermes sugar daddy” could be.  Below is the photo they found, in which Zhou subtitled “A little friend told me not to wear pussy high miniskirts anymore.”

 

So the question comes again. What exactly is a “pussy high miniskirt”? As Zhou herself explained under the photo, “The skirt is so short that it barely covers my private parts.” Within one day, “pussy high miniskirt” becomes the latest internet meme in China.

And guess what, also within one day, you can actually buy “pussy high miniskirts” on Taobao (China’s biggest ecommerce site). The pitch? “Pussy high miniskirts. Favorite of sugar daddies.”

No one really cares about the rest of the story, but for the sake of storytelling…Netizens did find a suspect of this delegate sugar daddy – Yue Peiye, Chairman of Taiye Management.

He issued a letter to the public explaining the case on March 15, two days after the incidence went viral.

“People are angry because they thought I was a NPC delegate. But I’m not and I don’t hold any government related positions. But I won’t stop the angry netizens. They need a target to fire away their complaints and I’m Ok to be that target”

He continued by making fun of himself.

“If they want to call me sugar daddy, then be it. I not only recruit daughters but also sons… If one day I do become a NPC delegate, I will make sure to solve the problem of Article 73 (China’s new secret detention law).”
