Li Ao published erotic novels, saying that the plot absolutely made people blush and beat their hearts (Figure)


  BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhua) Former legislator Li Ao released his latest masterpiece "Virtual 17" on the 25th. Li Ao joked at the press conference that there is an upper and lower age limit for reading this fantastic erotic novel, and people over 80 and under 18 can’t read it, otherwise it will be "frozen (unbearable)", like "Hao Longbin’s father (Hao Baicun) can’t read it".


  According to Taiwan Province’s Dongsen News, today’s press conference of Li Ao’s new book was held in Fuhua Hotel. Li Ao said that although the book is not "illustrated", the story with 360,000 words and 600 pages thick is absolutely blushing and heart-pounding. A reporter asked, are most of the contents of this book real stories of "masters"? He did not change the old urchin’s personality, and said, "Of course, most of them are fake."


  Li Ao also surprisingly said that the reason for publishing this "virtual seventeen-year-old" was that Taiwan Province had no literature at all during the Kuomintang ruling era, and some "monsters" who engaged in modern literature, such as Bai Xianyong and Wang Wenxing, came out. "I tell you, they were successful in life, failed in composition, and their articles were not well written. They learned the fur of foreigners and could not read their books, which was boring." Because "I look down on these people and talk to them.


  Li Ao returned to his old job of writing and finished the novel "Virtual 17-year-old" after he stepped down as a legislator. He said that this book took five years, because it was delayed during his tenure as a "legislator" and he had time to concentrate on writing after leaving office.


  "Virtual 17-year-old" narrates that a 17-year-old beautiful girl’s brain was implanted with a smart chip, and under the inspiration of a 67-year-old master of wisdom (the incarnation of Li Ao), she started the pursuit of spirituality and philosophy. The plot not only talks about ideas like "Beijing Fayuan Temple", but also has climaxes every 5 or 6 pages, so he also automatically classified the new book as a restricted level, added envelopes and affixed stickers.


  Li Ao once said with a smile a few days ago that he is an out-of-date figure. Although the new book is very restricted, I am afraid it is still difficult to sell, but "I am rich and not afraid of losing money!" However, Li Ao was right in this sentence, because the visiting members of the mainland rich group, after seeing his high popularity in the mainland, left the stage and generously gave a big red envelope to cross-strait cultural exchanges, and decided to contribute 30 million yuan to support the establishment of a cultural academy in Li Ao to promote cross-strait cultural exchanges.

Foreigner who has lived in China: I really have feelings for China.

  With China’s economic development becoming more and more closely linked with the world, more and more foreigners come to China to study, find jobs, live and travel … … According to United Nations statistics, from 1990 to 2015, the number of foreigners living in China increased from 370,000 to 970,000, with an average annual growth rate of 2.4%.

  In the circle of friends on WeChat and overseas social networking sites, people noticed that foreigners praised China not only for its beautiful natural scenery, long-standing culture and attractive food with the tip of the tongue, but also for China people’s lifestyle, social security management, people’s civilized quality and the country’s innovative development, which attracted more and more attention and praise, so much so that some netizens in China jokingly said that the image of China had been spread abroad.

  What kind of experiences and stories did they give China praise without stint? We approached some ordinary people and listened to their true feelings, which also gave us a more comprehensive understanding of our country and times.

  "The whole world should learn from the spirit of China people’s dedication."

  Matthew sessions is a sunny boy from Utah, USA. In August 2016, he came to beijing language and culture university College of Preparatory Education to study. His Chinese name is Liu Masai.

  "For foreigners, China is the best opportunity to learn Chinese, and you can also get involved in various fields of interest, such as business and technology. China is one of the best places to do these things." Matthew said that the fast-paced life was the most uncomfortable thing for the first two months in China. However, I have adapted well. "Life in China is incredibly convenient! I like to buy on Taobao and order takeout online. The convenience of life is really amazing. "

  "Oh, there are WeChat payment, Ali payment, bike-sharing, Didi taxi … … I really hope that the United States can develop some such software and services! " Speaking of this, Matthew was particularly excited and shouted twice, "This makes life so convenient!" Matthew introduced the bike-sharing service to the reporter seriously. "In Beijing, you can ride your car almost anywhere, which is convenient and cheap. This idea is simply brilliant." Matthew has many friends from China who study in the United States. "They told me that after going abroad, it was not convenient when they were in China, and some of them didn’t adapt. In this respect, the United States really can’t compare with China. "

  Matthew thinks that the culture of China is very tolerant, and foreigners are very comfortable living here. "I am treated well by China people everywhere I go." Matthew said that China people are open, friendly and helpful. "Just find anyone on the road, really anyone, and you can help me at any time." Matthew likes to eat snacks with friends in his spare time. No matter what time he goes out, he never worries about his safety. "I feel at ease at any time." Instead, he reminded this reporter that "it is very dangerous for girls to travel alone in the United States, Europe or other places. If there is a need for work, you must travel together and pay attention to safety. "

  Matthew was also deeply impressed by the hardworking people in China. He said, "I have never seen anyone who works harder than people in China. I think the whole world should learn from China people’s dedication to work and study. "

  "I love China and I can’t stop."

  Wei Moli, director of China-Europe Digital Association, is a beautiful Italian girl. "Wei" is taken from her Italian surname, and "Molly" is the Chinese name she gave herself.

  "I really have feelings for China." Molly thinks that she and China seem to have an innate fate. In middle school, a book about the economic rise of China made Molly yearn for this ancient oriental country. After graduating from high school in 2009, Molly came to China and planned to study Chinese in beijing language and culture university for one semester. "But I fell in love with China at once and couldn’t stop." As a result, Molly’s plan was changed again and again. "In 2014, when I finished my master’s thesis in Chinese, my heart was full of great satisfaction and accomplishment."

  Molly likes to travel around China. "In China, I have never encountered any danger. I often take the night train alone, without worrying about losing my luggage or encountering anything terrible. But in Italy, girls dare not do this. "

  "One of the important reasons I love China is that it always creates surprises." Last month, Molly wrote this in a circle of friends and distributed a beautiful picture of riding a bicycle in Beijing. What makes Molly feel is that it is so convenient to unlock the payment through the mobile phone. Europeans are still used to using cash or credit cards, and China people have used a smart phone to cope with all kinds of daily consumption. "In many ways, China today is more advanced than many western countries."

  Molly believes that "China people have an open mind, a broad vision, are good at learning and absorbing all the outstanding achievements of civilization of other countries and nations, and are particularly tolerant, enterprising and wise." Unconsciously, Jasmine has closely linked her future with the development of China. "China leaders and ordinary people are optimistic and full of confidence in the future, and China will certainly bring light and hope to the world."

  Jasmine likes what Ma Yun said, "Today is difficult, tomorrow is more difficult, but the day after tomorrow will be very beautiful". "Of course, only those who persist until the day after tomorrow can see this beauty. So I will definitely stick to it. " Molly said firmly.

  "I’m glad I made the right decision"

  "I saw the development of China with my own eyes, learned the experience of China and fell in love with the diligence and friendliness of China people." Anastasia Marcico, a Belarusian girl, talked about her China story with pride in her words. She began to learn Chinese after she went to college. Later, she not only came to China to study, work and live, but also gained the love of a handsome guy in China, and now they have the crystallization of love.

  Eight years ago, anastasia went to Nanjing University as an exchange student at Belarusian State University for one year. "I originally planned to go to the United States that summer, and I have already obtained American visas. I hesitated after receiving the notice from the school about studying in China, because China was not very developed in my impression. However, I am glad that I finally made the right decision. I came to China and fell in love with it. "

  China’s modern road construction, especially the expressways between cities, is very developed, which has left a deep impression on anastasia. She said that she came to China for the first time in 2009, and took a three-and-a-half-hour bus ride from Shanghai to Nanjing. In 2010, the intercity high-speed railway from Nanjing to Shanghai was completed. When I return to China, I will take the train to Shanghai, and it will take 80 minutes. "In a year, the development of China is so fast! I like living in China very much. "

  After graduating from college in 2011, anastasia visited China many times and worked in some cities for several years. "I’ve been to big cities such as Beishangguang, medium-sized cities such as Foshan, Shantou, Yiwu, Ningbo and Jinan, and some rural areas in China. Both cities and rural areas are developing rapidly, and every time I go to China, I can experience the changes brought about by rapid development. "

  "China’s urban public transportation system is very developed. Many cities have subways, and now there are shared bicycles and shared cars." Anastasia told reporters that online shopping can buy everything you want, and many things can be done through a mobile phone. You don’t need to bring your wallet when you go out, which is totally unimaginable convenience.

  "China’s manufacturing industry is very strong. China brand also has a very good reputation. " Anastasia finally told this reporter that China people are taking a road of innovation and development with their wisdom and hard work.

  "Living in China is very safe."

  Rebecca Contreras, a Mexican girl, and Aslan, a Pakistani boy, are two international students our reporter met at a new book conference.

  Rebecca came to Beijing in 2014, studying for the Master of Chinese International Education in beijing language and culture university, and her graduation ceremony is coming in June. Aslan is studying for a master’s degree in Chinese international education at East China Normal University.

  When talking about the experience of living in China, Rebecca was very excited. The enthusiasm and friendliness of her friends in China and the convenience and safety of life in China made her reluctant to leave. "Unlike Mexico, I feel very safe in China." Rebecca told reporters that she was shocked when she took the subway in Beijing for the first time. "Almost everyone has a mobile phone, and some people use computers to surf the Internet. There is no need to worry about being stolen or robbed." What makes Rebecca happiest is, "It’s safe to go home after 3 am. I really like it here!" Aslan has traveled to many countries in Europe and Asia. He commented: "China is one of the safest countries I have ever been to."

  During her life in China, the convenient mobile payment method made Rebecca hooked up. Now, when Rebecca goes out, she can just take her mobile phone. "Life is so convenient." This is unmatched by many developed countries. Bike-sharing can be used for short-distance travel, and there is a high-speed train for long-distance travel. Even when buying clothes, Aslan, like his classmates in China, has been keen to use online shopping channels such as Taobao. He said that everyone has summed up four new inventions of China, namely, high-speed rail, Alipay, bike-sharing and online shopping. "I like your China ‘ Four new inventions ’ Yes. "

  In her spare time, it has become Rebecca’s greatest pleasure to look for food in the streets with her friends in China. "China friends are easy to get along with! I am very happy to have the opportunity to study, work, communicate with them and share each other’s culture. " This is the best cross-cultural communication class, she said. "Living in China is the most unforgettable experience of my life."

How can domestic beauty products that are no longer "arrogant" get out of the comfort zone?

Recently, the domestic make-up brand Ermu Grape published a post in Xiaohongshu, saying that the boss asked it to operate "just find a few big names" and attached screenshots of private letters to major luxury brands such as GUCCI, LV and FENDI. From the picture, various luxury brands did not reply, and the post published by Ermu Grape said, "Busy all morning, talk about the next 0 cooperation".

Judging from the follow-up posts released by Ermu Grape, Ermu Grape did not announce the joint plan, but instead saw the ridicule of others on this matter from the pictures exposed.

Some media believe that whether the joint invitation is really rejected by luxury brands or the new marketing method of Ermu Grape to win traffic, it shows an embarrassment of domestic makeup.

domestic goodsBeauty cosmetics highlight no longer.

As early as 2018, domestic make-up was playing the game of "Who is the real makeup of the Forbidden City", and then a series of highlights were opened. In 2019, more and more domestic cosmetics such as eye shadow, mascara and blush were sought after. Perfect Diary and Hua Xizi successively topped the list of Tmall 618 or double 11 cosmetics as "dark horses", ranking at the TOP10 for three consecutive years.

However, with the increasingly fierce competition of domestic cosmetics, brands that once led domestic cosmetics seem to be slowing down and slipping from a high position step by step.

According to the "618" sales data of the whole network in 2023 from the star map data, in the category of perfume cosmetics, the top five brands in JD.COM list have been dominated by international brands, and only Hua Xizi, a domestic cosmetics brand, is still on the list. Compared with the data of 618 and Double Eleven in the previous two years, domestic brands such as Perfect Diary and Kelaqi have dropped off the list.

Besides, in the beauty and skin care list, the top five brands in JD.COM are also taken over by international brands such as L ‘Oré al, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Olay, Shiseido, etc., while in the top five domestic brands on Tmall list, only Polaiya is shortlisted, ranking fourth. Huaxi Bio, known as one of the "three giants" of skin care, has no two skin care brands on the list.

From the overall data point of view, according to the star map data, beauty and skin care is still the largest category on the integrated e-commerce platform, with sales of 30 billion yuan during the "618" period, but the overall growth rate has slowed down; Perfume make-up maintained a growth rate, with a total sales of 10.6 billion yuan. In addition, the GMV of "618" Tmall plus JD.COM beauty category reached 40.6 billion yuan, down 1.0% year-on-year.

According to the data quoted by the media, judging from the performance of various brands, according to Jiuqian’s data, at present, foreign brands are still the main brands in Tmall TOP10, and only 2 or 3 domestic brands in skin care and makeup categories have entered the list respectively.

Obviously, compared with foreign brands, the performance of domestic beauty in this year’s 618 is not so bright. In fact, the pace of domestic beauty is indeed slowing down. According to the previous statistics of a glance at the business, in the second quarter, there were more than 80 financing incidents in the new consumption field as a whole, and only 6 financing incidents occurred in the beauty industry. In the first quarter, there were 130 financing incidents in the new consumption sector as a whole, and 36 financing incidents occurred in the beauty industry. Compared with the first quarter, the data in the second quarter dropped a lot.

According to the incomplete statistics of Beauty Headlines, there were 14 investment/financing incidents in the beauty industry in May, amounting to nearly 800 million yuan. It is worth noting that of the 14 investment/financing incidents, 13 were for overseas beauty cosmetics.

Chao Chenglin, director of the Industrial Space Research Institute of business experts, believes that there are three reasons why domestic cosmetics brands are cold: First, due to the weak overall consumer market, the overall consumption performance at this stage is not ideal, and consumers’ willingness to consume is also declining, leading to a certain correction in the consumption performance of many industries. Cosmetics industry is a non-life necessity, and the decline in performance is no exception.

Secondly, as far as domestic cosmetics are concerned, there is a general problem of over-marketing. After the consumer experience in the past few years, their domestic cosmetics have no special advantage in product strength, and it is inevitable to gradually cool down.

He further pointed out that the early entry strategy of domestic cosmetics focused on the replacement strategy of foreign big brands and pursued cost performance. At this stage, more and more well-known big brands began to eat away the market share of the original domestic cosmetics by using different sales strategies, brand combinations and other means, coupled with changes in consumer demand, brand image and product quality, the competitive disadvantage of domestic cosmetics brands was immediately highlighted in the face of the dimensionality reduction blow of international big brands.

Light research and developmentOver-reliance on onlineHow to break the brand?

Once upon a time, high-intensity marketing was once the "standard" of domestic beauty products, but as the ultimate marketing investment can no longer get the same return, brands may need to find a new way out.

According to the information quoted by beijing business today, Hua Xizi’s previous marketing investment of nearly 20 million yuan per month was criticized by the industry for emphasizing marketing and neglecting research and development; The parent company of Perfect Diary is questioned because of its high marketing expenses. It is understood that in 2020, the sales and marketing expenses of Yixian e-commerce reached 3.41 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 172%, and the proportion of total revenue climbed to 65%. By 2021, this figure rose to 68%. Polaiya was criticized for spending more than 5 billion yuan on marketing and promotion in three years. The data shows that from 2020 to 2022, the sales expenses of Polaiya were 1.497 billion yuan, 1.992 billion yuan and 2.786 billion yuan respectively, and the sales expense ratio reached 39.9%, 42.98% and 43.63% respectively.

Wu Daiqi, CEO of Shenzhen Siqisheng Company, once pointed out that from the past experience, higher marketing investment will indeed bring certain performance growth to enterprises, but with the continuous development of the market, consumer demand is also changing, and brand power, product innovation and quality have become important conditions for consumers to choose products. This requires the strategic direction, brand management, operational ability and other comprehensive strength of the enterprise.

Zhong Xiaoming, president of Guangdong Cosmetics Quality Management Association, once pointed out that although it has entered the forefront of the world in quantity, the current innovation ability of China’s cosmetics industry does not match the huge market. Especially in the "original knowledge innovation" ability is still relatively weak. "

How to break the game? From the current point of view, many domestic brands have chosen to cooperate with major universities to explore more possibilities of products. Domestic cosmetics companies, including Yixian E-commerce, Hua Xizi, Polaiya and Huaxi Bio, have been seeking cooperation with universities in recent years.

It is worth noting that domestic brands have developed rapidly with the help of online channels such as Little Red Book, Tik Tok and e-commerce, but relying on a certain channel or an anchor will bring certain obstacles to brands. For example, taking Yuze as an example, after losing Li Jiaqi and Viya in succession, the sales of Yuze brand plummeted, which directly affected the performance of shanghai jahwa. In 2022, the company’s overall online channel achieved a total revenue of 2.787 billion yuan, a decrease of 13.21% compared with the same period of last year; The company’s overall offline channels achieved a total revenue of 4.313 billion yuan, a decrease of 2.59% compared with the same period last year.

When the e-commerce channel dividend disappeared, brands began to reconsider the layout offline. For example, Hua Xizi opened a 1000-square-meter offline store on the lakeside of Hangzhou. According to the incomplete statistics of the market, in the second half of 2022, at least 18 Chinese and foreign beauty brands increased their offline channel layout, not limited to opening global flagship stores, retail boutiques, brand offline stores and so on.

Chao Chenglin also pointed out that the reason why domestic cosmetics brands began to relocate offline may be to find more sales channels and improve brand exposure. Offline channels have certain advantages, which can directly reach consumers, provide more diversified shopping experiences and product displays, and attract more consumers’ attention and purchase. In addition, offline channels can also help brands to establish closer contact with consumers, provide better after-sales service and consumer feedback mechanism, and help to shape brand image and improve products. By rearranging offline, domestic cosmetics brands can better interact with consumers and improve brand awareness and market share.

At the time of slowing down, domestic beauty cosmetics may also be trying to get out of the comfort zone. Chao Chenglin believes that the road of domestic cosmetics is still very long. In the future, we need to pay more attention to product research and development and brand promotion to improve market share and consumer recognition.
