Here at Sexy Beijing headquarters the Youtube block in China has obviously thrown a wrench into the gears. Blocking Youtube doesn't strike us as a very harmonious thing to do, and we are not very happy with the Net Nanny right now. But we are also trying to rejigger things so that people in China have access to the English language versions of our videos. It takes time to redo everything without using Youtube, so please bear with us.
For now, you can find a lot of our videos on our Tudou page. Some of the Tudou videos don't have English subtitles, but many of the earlier ones do. We have also started posting some of our episodes at Brightcove.tv, which is working pretty smoothly in China at the moment. The Shanghaiist has recommended the Hotspot Shield as an anonymous proxy to get around the Great Firewall. There are Mac and PC versions and so far it has worked well on my computer. Youtube is a bit slower with Hotspot Shield but you can still watch videos with a bit of patience.
We are still hoping that now that the 17th party congress has wrapped up in Beijing, the good ol' days of carefree Youtube surfing in China will return... and hoping that last statement didn't just jinx the possibility of that ever happening.
