According to William Wan of The Washington Post, the most bizarre government job can be found in the China. Reportedly, there are officials "in charge of censoring pornography for the southern province of Hunan" who have "watched more than 700 pornographic DVDs from beginning to end."
When youre in this job, even if you dont want to watch anymore, you have to keep watching closely, said one worker, 70-year-old Liu Xiaozhen, who demonstrated his daily viewing routine with the bored, disaffected thousand-yard stare of a man who has seen it all, many times over.
Pornography in China like prostitution and other sex-related commerce is illegal but, increasingly, readily available throughout the country. In every city, hawkers can be found selling graphic DVDs on street corners alongside bootleg copies of the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
But official crackdowns are ordered up each year, an especially brutal routine for sex workers and one that has recently been criticized by international human rights groups. During the crackdowns, porn hawkers are arrested en masse and their wares swept up by the thousands. And, as tough as the job may be, someone has to go through all the DVDs and see whats on them.
