The pioneering Chinese erotic novel, Ruyijun Zhuan had been published one century before the appearance of Jin Ping Mei. There were erotic novels such as Chipozi Zhuan and Xiu Ta Ye Shi and Lang Shi published during the appearance of Jin Ping Mei. As a matter of fact, abundant erotic novels such as Rou Pu Tuan and Gu Wang Yan were popular during late Ming and early Qing period. Unfortunately, there is hardly any research focusing on comparing sexual descriptions between Jin Ping Mei and these famous erotic novels. This three-year research project will examine sexual descriptions of these works and try to distinguish the difference between Jin Ping Mei and the genre of Ming-Qing erotic novels. At present, I am comparing Jin Ping Mei and Rou Pu Tuan.
