"The horror, the horror.." -- Kurtz, Apocalypse Now

He's 59 years old and he's hard at work, watching adult content all day.  On average, he watches around 329 pornographic videos a day.  During his last five years "on the beat" he's seen over 600,000 adult films.
 
I. Chinese Porn Police -- Hard on the Job
 
To some, that might sound like a dream.  But to China's Chunqi Liu, it's a career turn that has put his life through hell.
 
In the early days of the internet, Chinese officials largely cast a blind eye to porn.  But in 2002, the Asian nation assumed a rigid stance on online smut.  With the 2002 crackdown, nearly all pornographic material is illegal -- feature films, magazines, internet video, the whole shebang.  Possessing pornography can earn you up to 3 years in prison, plus fines of up to CN¥20,000 (~$3,200 USD).  
 
The fist of justice penetrated the black market particularly hard and fast in 2009-2010, with officials seizing 60,000 local websites under suspicion of peddling porn.  Over 5,000 Chinese citizens were ensnared in the crackdown; many have since been asentenced to time in the slammer.  Even America's Apple, Inc. (AAPL) came under fire for reportedly making available softcore pornographic apps.

China insists that forbidding the sale of smut is crucial for maintaining cultural "morality' and "purity".  But that leads to a natural question -- how does China know what its citizens are distributing is really porn and not just, say Chinese Baywatch?
 
The answer lies in the nation's tireless "porn identification officers," a team of crack cops which scour the bowels of the internet for signs of porn.  When they spot something suspicious, they must watch the videos -- often in their entirety -- to confirm that the material in question is truly pornographic.

However, many of China's porn cops insist that it is a truly miserable profession; one that they only perform out of deep loyalty to their government and society.
 
II. Vomiting, Unable to Eat His Rice, Former Teacher of Teenage Schoolgirls Vows to Watch More Porn for His Country
 
In Mr. Chunqi's case, the pulsing headaches started not long after he was transferred from his position as a teacher educating teenage schoolgirls to a wildly different position. Handpicked for his upstanding moral character, the Chinese government put him in a wildly different position, make him a member of the nation's porn police.
 
Reporting to work at his new position, he shared precious few details with his family.  He quickly was accused by his wife of cheating after she overheard strange moans and other noises while calling him at work.  Confronted by his wife and his mother-in-law he revealed what he had been too embarrassed to tell them originally -- he was now on the beat as a member of the porn police.
 
Mr. Chunqi was so psychologically traumatized by the family drama -- and his new job -- that he reportedly vowed to quit, until the chief of the unit came by to encourage him to stay.

Mr. Chunqi has stuck it out ever since, but it hasn't been easy. As Chinese pornographers often hide their videos, he often has to spend hours watching through innocent images and video, and even rehearsed scenes in order to get to the gold mine -- hardcore (absolutely illegal) hardcore action.
 
In such a repressed region, you might think that Mr. Chunqi would experience pleasure at seeing what his countryman cannot (well, not legally, anyhow).  But he insists that he does not.
 
In an interview he says the job is exhausting.  At times he works for 20 days without a break, he says.  And he regularly witnesses things in pornographic videos that make him literally vomit.
 
Speaking to China's ETT Today, he comments [translated]:

No one knows the bitterness of the Kam Wong [anti-porn] division.

Reportedly watching the porn often leaves such a bitter taste in his mouth that he is "almost collapsed [and] could not eat rice."

So next time you think your job is bad, just remember, it could be worse -- you could be stuck watching porn all day and be unable to hold down your rice.

I am pretty sure he is hard at work every day.
I wonder how often does he splurge for yogurt while at work.
If I worked there they would have to pay me in IV's not money.

As a former teacher of high school girls myself I will tell you that I saw them as my own family, as my own daughters. So if Mr. Chunqi went from a similar situation to being forced to view videos of girls looking like his students getting abused, the effect would be more clockwork orange type trauma than pleasure.

As a former student of high school, I can tell you that I did not see the high school girls as my sisters.

This is what I found most disturbing from this story.

Gotta love Communism. One day you're working at your (presumably) chosen profession, the next day you're pressed into service doing who-knows what and you have no say in it.

Transferred....Transferred!?

Sounds like the transfer was voluntary

Could have been just a front, to "make" them keep him there.

The whole time he's complaining, he's thinking, "Man, I LOVE this job!!" ;)

While I question many things that come out of Chinese news sources as propaganda, I have no doubt that this man has one of the worst jobs ever. At first glance, you might think, "hey that's an awesome job, he gets to watch porn all day!", but then think about it a bit: he has to watch all the porn on the internet. Including all the fetishy stuff that would make your stomach churn (unless you're into it). This man knows the true depths of the horrors of Rule 34. I pity him.

Am I the only one who keeps reading it "Pop Corn" over and over and over again?

I was reading Corn Pops, as in the cereal with the frog mascot...

I that that was Sugar Smacks that had the frog mascot? Wasn't his name Digum or something like?

Then again, it's been ages since I ate that stuff.

You are correct, Smacks have the frog mascot. And according to Wikipedia:

'Then, in mid-2009, Kellogg's introduced an alternative mascot named the "Sweet Toothasaur," consisting of the upside down bottom half of an actor's face, with a green felt cap with googly eyes and red paper horns on the actor's chin'

I ummm, yea, I have no idea what to say to that. Just wow.

I'm assuming the "(absolutely ILLEGAL)" part suggests that this guy frequently comes across videos of "Captain Picard", as well as some of the really nasty kinks like vore.

I wouldn't blame the guy for not being able to hold down his rice if that was the case. Only $DEITY knows what kind of messed up porn is in China. The nation already has a reputation for being morally bankrupt and all.
