The Xinhua news agency has published an editorial urging Chinese government officials to avoid sex scandals and be "superheroes" when it comes to fighting corruption.

Xinhua is the official news agency of the government and the editorial would not be published without official approval.

The editorial says: "As an ancient Chinese saying goes, few heroes can resist the lure of beauty. In this sense, Communist officials should demonstrate strength as superheroes in their fight against corruption."

The editorial comes amid a huge push by China's new leadership to quell public discontent over corruption scandals.

The new President Xi Jinping, who replaces outgoing Hu Jintao, announced late last year that one of the top priorities of the new government will be to stop graft at all levels.

Just this week he followed up with a speech at a three-day meeting held by the Central Commission for Discipline. They've promised to crack down on bribery and will begin investigating the value of government officials' personal assets.

Still from a Lei Zhengfu Sex Tape Scandal.

There have been numerous incidents in recent months raising the specter of corruption. Just last week it says the head of Translation Bureau of the Communist Party's Central Committee was let go from his post for "an improper lifestyle."

Apparently this improper lifestyle came to light after his alleged mistress posted an on-line, 100,000 character tell-all about their affair.

But gaining international attention - the case of Lei Zhengfu, the party boss of Chongqing's Beibei District, who was caught on tape with an 18-year-old mistress. Extremely explicit screen grabs from the tape were widely circulated on the Internet.

The woman in the photos is alleged to have been a plant by a company that wanted to blackmail Lei.

The editorial goes on to cite a study done by a Chinese university, that found 95 percent of officials who are under investigation have mistresses.

It openly worries that successive scandals "may erode the public's confidence in officials" and also leave people questioning women's promotions, lest they think they got them for the wrong reasons.

Number 1:
To disclose the assets and salaries of high-level officials to the public

Why do those high-level officials have many mistresses? Do they have a large amount of dirty money?

Rich men like to have a mistress, even in Western countries.

The question is whether the wife objects.


The Communist Party needs to call all the wives to a special meeting.

That's the way to do it.

Is it really anyone's business where Han politicians place their penises, as long as no female gets pregnant?  Financial corruption harm the public, but how does "penis corruption" harm the public?  

Consider Bill Clinton: best president for USA, but the public got into his personal penis business and destroyed him.

As a eugenicist, I separate the act of sex from the act of reproduction.  Reproduction can be done artificially, via in vitro fertilization, or surrogate mothers, or someday artificial wombs.  And sex can be done just for fun without giving birth.  An advanced species can separate these two acts.  So, if eugenic reproduction is not harmed, then sex just becomes harmless innocent fun.  Right?

hahaha...here, you wrote: Rich men..
but at the first post, you wrote: Officials.
the problem is:

Actually, in China, the high-level officials can only earn less than 10,000 yuan a month. How can they have extra finance to afford a mistress? That is to say, most of officials in China have mistresses through the abuse of gov power and bribery.
