A Male-on-Male Sexual Assault Caught on Camera Exposes China’s Flawed Laws

At 5 a.m. on Sunday morning, a Chinese man (named in the press as Arjun) awoke from his drunken sleep on a public bench to find his belt undone and his phone and wallet missing. After he reported the theft to police, police viewed security camera footage of where he slept and discovered that a thief had given Arjun a handjob and oral sex while he slept.

After a night out drinking in the surrounding neighborhood, Arjun fell asleep on a bench made of stainless steel tubing in front of the Liuzhou Industrial Center. It was 2 a.m. and he slept there without moving as strangers passed in the distance.

Two and a half hours later, a man walked up to Arjun’s side and looked around for witnesses. After finding the coast clear, he began to massage Arjun’s crotch. When Arjun didn’t wake, he began loosening Arjun’s belt and administered a handjob and eventually oral sex.

To be clear, non-consensual handjobs and oral sex are sexual assault. Although male-on-male rape happens in the LGBTQ community, we don’t often hear about it because society shames male rape survivors for not fighting off their assailants or enjoying their assaults.

China doesn’t have criminal statutes for male-on-male sexual assault, but it did criminalize “forcible indecency” between men just last year. Previous to the law change, sexual assault between men was prosecuted as assault. The fact that “forcible indecency” wasn’t a crime before 2015 shows the cross-cultural misconception that men cannot be sexually assaulted. China still considers rape a crime that can only happen between men and women or young children.

The assault reportedly lasted four to five minutes, during which time Arjun’s phone slipped out of his pocket. The assaulter picked up Arjun’s phone and continued molesting him. Minutes later, the thief took Arjun’s wallet and departed.

Police tracked down the thief/assaulter by noon and arrested him at a hotel 200 meters away from the crime scene. He was a 30-year-old gay man in town for business who claimed to find Arjun attractive. Inside Arjun’s wallet, he found 600 yuan in cash (nearly $90) and kept Arjun’s ID so that he could remember him. He’s currently in jail.

Videos of the incident have since gone viral on Chinese social media.
