What On Earth Is A Eunuch?

In ancient China castration was both a traditional punishment (until the Sui Dynasty) and a means of gaining employment in the Imperial service. At the end of the Ming Dynasty there were 70,000 eunuchs (宦官 huàn'guān, or 太監 tàijiān) in the Imperial palace. The value of such employment - certain eunuchs gained immense power that may supersede that of the prime ministers -- was such that self-castration had to be made illegal. The number of eunuchs in Imperial employ had fallen to 470 in 1912, when the employment ceased.

A eunuch is a castrated male —
one who has had his testicles and penis removed.


The eunuch was known to play a part in the emperor's sex life .

First, in every afternoon the eunuch would present a tray with many bamboo sticks with the names of the empress, consorts,………etc on them.
The emperor would pick out the one he would like to sleep with that night.
And in the evening, the girl chosen would take a bath, get naked and wrap herself with a thick mattress with the help of the eunuch.

When the time comes, two eunuchs would hold both ends of the rolled mattress and enter the Emperor’s residence.
Then they would unroll the mattress and the naked girl would be out on the floor. The eunuchs would then leave the room, close the door, and the naked girl would crawl to the emperor’s bed.
The eunuchs would wait silently outside the emperor’s bedroom. When the orgasm came (I guess judged by the volume of sound inside the room), the eunuchs would shout loudly to the emperor: “My Lord, please take care of your dragon body!”

The advice means that the emperor should not unleash his sperms. (Per Taoist doctor, one drop of sperm is equal to many drops of blood.)

China's last eunuch spills sex, castration secrets

Jia Yinghua (L), the author of "The Last Eunuch of China", poses with China's last eunuch, Sun Yaoting, at Sun's house in Beijing in this 1996 handout photo.




BEIJING, March 15 – Only two memories brought tears to Sun Yaoting’s eyes in old age – the day his father cut off his genitals, and the day his family threw away the pickled remains that should have made him a whole man again at death.
China’s last eunuch was tormented and impoverished in youth, punished in revolutionary China for his role as the “Emperor’s slave” but finally feted and valued, largely for outlasting his peers to become a unique relic, a piece of “living history”.
He had stories of the tortuous rituals of the Forbidden City, Emperor Pu Yi’s last moments there and the troubled puppet court run by the Japanese during the 1930s.
He escaped back to the heart of a civil war, became a Communist official and then a target of radical leftists before being finally left in peace.
This turbulent life has been recorded in the “The Last Eunuch of China” by amateur historian Jia Yinghua, who over years of friendship drew out of Sun the secrets that were too painful or intimate to spill to prying journalists or state archivists.
He died in 1996, in an old temple that had become his home, and his biography was finally published in English this year.
It unveils formerly taboo subjects like the sex life of eunuchs and the emperor they served, the agonising castrations often done at home and also often lethal, and the incontinence and shame that came with the promise of great power.
“He was conflicted over whether to tell the secrets of the emperor,” said Jia, adding that Sun preserved a loyalty to the old system because he had dedicated so much of his life to it.
“I was the only person he trusted. He did not even confide in his family, after they threw away his ‘treasure’,” Jia added, using traditional eunuchs’ slang for their preserved genitals.
They were discarded during the chaotic 1966-76 Cultural Revolution, when having anything from the “old society” could put lives at risk.
“He only cried about two things; when telling me about the castration and about the loss of his ‘treasure’,” said Jia, who works as an energy bureaucrat, but devotes all his spare time to chronicling the dying days of Imperial China after a childhood enthralled by the eunuchs and princes who were his neighbours.
Over years of painstaking research, he has gleaned arcane details about every aspect of palace life, along with secrets about the emperor’s sexuality and cruelty that would look at home on the front page of tabloid newspapers.
For centuries in China, the only men from outside the imperial family who were allowed into the Forbidden City’s private quarters were castrated ones. They effectively swapped their reproductive organs for a hope of exclusive access to the emperor that made some into rich and influential politicians.
Sun’s impoverished family set him on this painful, risky path in hopes that he might one day be able to crush a bullying village landlord who stole their fields and burnt their house.
His desperate father performed the castration on the bed of their mud-walled home, with no anaesthetic and only oil-soaked paper as a bandage. A goose quill was inserted in Sun’s urethra to prevent it getting blocked as the wound healed.
He was unconscious for three days and could barely move for two months. When he finally rose from his bed, history played the first of a series of cruel tricks on him – he discovered the emperor he hoped to serve had abdicated several weeks earlier.
“He had a very tragic life. He had thought it was worthwhile for his father, but the sacrifice was in vain,” Jia said, in a house stacked with old books, newspapers and photos.
“He was very smart and shrewd. If the empire had not fallen there is a high chance he would have become powerful,” Jia added.
The young ex-emperor was eventually allowed to stay in the palace and Sun had risen to become an attendant to the empress when the imperial family were unceremoniously booted out of the Forbidden City, ending centuries of tradition and Sun’s dreams.
“He was castrated, then the emperor abdicated. He made it into the Forbidden City then Pu Yi was evicted. He followed him north and then the puppet regime collapsed. He felt life had played a joke at his expense,” Jia said.
Many eunuchs fled with palace treasures, but Sun took a crop of memories and a nose for political survival that turned out to be better tools for surviving years of civil war and ideological turbulence that followed.
“He never became rich, he never became powerful, but he became very rich in experience and secrets,” Jia said. – Reuters




The existence of lesbianism in those days.

Double-headed dildoes have been unearthed in Han princely tombs, and confirm the existence of lesbianism in those days. Love between women in the imperial palaces is recorded at least until the Ming dynasty of China from 1368 to 1644

Under the Ming, written and pictorial sources depicting lesbianism multiplied. Many works of pictorial erotica from this period include lesbian or bisexual content; most naughty novels feature young women experimenting with each other.

Women's sexual practices included frottage (which was called "grinding beans [to make] tofu," or mo doufu), cunnilingus, and mutual masturbation. They also used bronze, wood, and ivory phallic instruments, which were denoted by such names as "dumb husband" (bu yu xiansheng), "Master Horn" (jiao xiansheng), or "Cantonese love" (Guangdong renshi).

Masturbation by men was seen as unhealthy and forbidden, for it was said to cause a complete loss of his vital yang essence. Women could masturbate freely as they were said to have an unlimited yin. Medical texts only warned women against masturbation with foreign objects which were believed to injure the womb and internal sexual organs.
