All manner of articles can be inserted, retained, and ejected from the vaginal cavity. Darts, cigarettes, small animals — you name it. Ping pong shows are one of the more popular Pattaya attractions, and tourists come in droves to be disgusted, amused, and occasionally aroused at the marvels undertaken by the nether regions of Thai women. And I do consider myself to be open-minded, I mean, I have been kissed by a ladyboy in Koh Samui before. Now how exactly can I describe Walking Street in Pattaya to you?

Pattaya nightlife is blinding neon with a disco beat, and with more drunks than an open bar at an Irish wake. You want live sex show? A stern looking older lady approached us, showed us to our seats, and handed us a rather large menu with all sorts of fancy hi-balls and cocktails.

Many of the dancers seemed bored out of their minds. Since photography and video are strictly forbidden, Matt asked one of the waitresses for a piece of paper and a pen so I could take notes during the show. You want to take notes? Of course somewhere during the night I lost that coveted piece of paper. Is this how the Vagina Monologues started?

That was my first thought, but no, this is where a Thai girl puts pussy to parchment. I think he handed her a baht note as a tip, but for genuine pussy penmanship, I think he got off easy. I bet that went straight on his fridge back home. Or is it only Thai women? Does vaginal strength like that come with practice? In any case, one of the infamous Pattaya girls opened a bottle of Coke with her vagina.

Not much fanfare, and it was all over pretty quickly. Just when I thought I had seen it all. This was what I came for. The ping pong ball extravaganza. Pageant Mom asked for a volunteer from the audience to hold the ping pong paddle, but since no one was offering, she ended up taking the helm of that task herself. Then she started shooting ping pong balls out of her vagina, just as advertised.

The sloppy popping sound got to be a bit much after a while, and like most in the audience, I was glad when it was over. And so on it went. Smoking a cigarette through the vagina. Removing what seemed like 20 feet of silk from the vagina. Breaking balloons by shooting darts from the vagina. And so on and so forth.

If I had one complaint about the show other than the whole disgustingness of it all , it would be that there was very little explanation of what was going on. A little bit more M. But then I suppose the mystery of it all would suffer. And what is art if you take away its mystery? Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.

Amant Foundation or credit card and Read More Devolving into total war —with any and all civilian-associated resources and infrastructure as legitimate military targets—the conflict was the largest in China since the Qing conquest in , and it also ranks as one of the bloodiest wars in human history, the bloodiest civil war, and the largest conflict of the 19th century, with estimates of the war dead ranging from 20—70 million to as high as million, with millions more displaced.

The war was mostly fought in the provinces of Jiangsu , Zhejiang , Anhui , Jiangxi and Hubei , but over 14 years of war the Taiping Army had marched through every province of China proper except Gansu. The Taiping Rebellion began in the southern province of Guangxi when local officials launched a campaign of religious persecution against a millenarian sect known as the God Worshipping Society led by Hong Xiuquan, who believed himself to be the younger brother of Jesus Christ.

The goals of the Taipings were religious, nationalist, and political in nature; they sought the conversion of the Chinese people to the Taiping's version of Christianity , the overthrow of the ruling Manchus, and a wholesale transformation and reformation of the state. Hong declared himself the Heavenly King of the Heavenly Kingdom of Peace or Taiping Heavenly Kingdom , from which comes the term "Taipings" that has often been applied to them in the English language.

The Taipings began marching north in September to escape Qing forces closing in on them. On March 19, , the Taipings captured the city of Nanjing and Hong declared it the Heavenly Capital of his kingdom. For a decade the Taiping occupied and fought across much of the mid and lower Yangtze valley, some of the wealthiest and most productive lands in the Qing empire.

The Taiping nearly managed to capture the Qing capital of Beijing with a northern expedition launched in May , and were successful in capturing large parts of Anhui, Jiangxi and Hubei provinces with the concurrent Western Expedition. Qing imperial troops proved to be largely ineffective in halting Taiping advances, focusing on a perpetually stalemated siege of Nanjing. In Hunan , a local irregular army called the Xiang Army or Hunan Army, under the personal leadership of Zeng Guofan , became the main armed force fighting for the Qing against the Taiping.

Zeng's Xiang Army proved effective in gradually turning back the Taiping advance in the western theater of the war. In the Taiping were weakened after infighting following an attempted coup led by its East King, Yang Xiuqing.

During this time the Xiang Army managed to gradually retake much of Hubei and Jiangxi province. In May the Taiping defeated the imperial forces that had been besieging Nanjing since , eliminating them from the region and opening the way for a successful invasion of southern Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, the wealthiest region of the Qing Empire.

In May the Xiang Army began directly besieging Nanjing and managed to hold firm despite numerous attempts by the numerically superior Taiping Army to dislodge them. Hong died on June 1, , and Nanjing fell shortly after, on July A small remainder of loyal Taiping forces continued to fight in northern Zhejiang, rallying behind Hong's teenage son Tianguifu , but after Tianguifu's capture on October 25, , Taiping resistance was gradually pushed into the highlands of Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Fujian and finally Guangdong , where one of the last Taiping loyalist, Wang Haiyang, was defeated on January 29, The terms used for the conflict and its participants often reflect the viewpoint of the writer.

In modern Chinese the war is often referred to as the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement, reflecting both a Nationalist and a Communist point of view that the Taiping represented a popular ideological movement of either Han nationalism or proto-communist values.

The scholar Jian Youwen is among those who refer to the rebellion as the "Taiping Revolutionary Movement" on the grounds that it worked towards a complete change in the political and social system rather than towards the replacement of one dynasty with another. They argue, instead, that the conflict should be called a "civil war". In English, the Heavenly Kingdom of Peace has often been shortened to simply the Taipings, from the word "Peace" in the Heavenly Kingdom of Peace, but this was never a term which either the Taipings or their enemies used to refer to them.

Qing-dynasty China in the early to midth century suffered a series of natural disasters, economic problems and defeats at the hands of the Western powers , in particular the humiliating defeat in by the British Empire in the First Opium War. Meanwhile, the population of China had exploded, nearly doubling between and , while the amount of cultivated land was stagnant.

Meanwhile, Christianity was beginning to make inroads in China. In Hong Xiuquan , a Hakka from a poor mountain village, once again failed the imperial examination , frustrating his ambition to become a scholar-official in the civil service.

Soon after Hong began preaching across Guangxi in , his follower Feng Yunshan founded the God Worshipping Society , a movement which followed Hong's fusion of Christianity, Daoism , Confucianism and indigenous millenarianism , which Hong presented as a restoration of the ancient Chinese faith in Shangdi. The revolt began in Guangxi.

In early January , after a small-scale battle resulted in a victory in late December , a 10,strong rebel army organized by Feng Yunshan and Wei Changhui routed Qing forces stationed in Jintian present-day Guiping , Guangxi. Taiping forces successfully repulsed an attempted imperial reprisal against the Jintian Uprising. The Taiping army pressed north into Hunan following the Xiang River , besieging Changsha , occupying Yuezhou , and then capturing Wuchang in December after reaching the Yangtze River.

At this point the Taiping leadership decided to move east along the Yangtze River. Anqing was captured in February In Taiping forces captured Nanjing , making it their capital and renaming it Tianjing "Heavenly Capital". Since the Taipings considered the Manchus to be demons, they first killed all the Manchu men, then forced the Manchu women outside the city and burned them to death. In Hong Xiuquan withdrew from active control of policies and administration to rule exclusively by written proclamations.

He lived in luxury and had many women in his inner chamber, and often issued religious strictures. He clashed with Yang Xiuqing, who challenged his often impractical policies, and became suspicious of Yang's ambitions, his extensive network of spies and his claims of authority when "speaking as God.

Shi Dakai was given control of five Taiping armies, which were consolidated into one. But fearing for his life, he departed from Tianjing and headed towards westwards Sichuan. With Hong withdrawn from view and Yang out of the picture, remaining Taiping leaders [ who? The Europeans decided to stay officially neutral, though European military advisors served with the Qing army. Inside China, the rebellion faced resistance from the traditionalist rural classes because of hostility to Chinese customs and Confucian values.

The landowning upper class, unsettled by the Taiping ideology and the policy of strict separation of the sexes , even for married couples, sided with government forces and their Western allies. In December Qing forces retook Wuchang for the final time.

This army would become known as the " Ever Victorious Army ", a seasoned and well trained Qing military force commanded by Charles George Gordon , and would be instrumental in the defeat of the Taiping rebels. In , around the time of the death of the Xianfeng Emperor and ascension Tongzhi Emperor , Zeng Guofan's Xiang Army captured Anqing with help from a British naval blockade on the city.

Ningbo is easily captured in December 9th, and Hangzhou is besieged and finally captured on December 31st, Taiping troops surround Shanghai in January, , but with the return of British and French troops from to the city returning from Northern China. The Ever-Victorious Army repulsed another attack on Shanghai in and helped to defend other treaty ports such as Ningbo , reclaimed on May They also aided imperial troops in reconquering Taiping strongholds along the Yangtze River.

In Shi Dakai surrendered to the Qing near the Sichuan capital Chengdu and was executed by slow-slicing. Qing forces were reorganised under the command of Zeng Guofan , Zuo Zongtang and Li Hongzhang , and the Qing reconquest began in earnest.

Hong Xiuquan declared that God would defend Nanjing, but in June , with Qing forces approaching, he died of food poisoning as a consequence of eating wild vegetables when the city ran low on food supplies. He was sick for 20 days before succumbing and a few days after his death, Qing forces took the city. His body was buried in the former Ming Imperial Palace , and was later exhumed on orders of Zeng Guofan to verify his death, and then cremated.

Hong's ashes were later blasted out of a cannon in order to ensure that his remains have no resting place as eternal punishment for the uprising. Four months before the fall of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, Hong Xiuquan abdicated in favor of his eldest son, Hong Tianguifu , who was 15 years old. The younger Hong was inexperienced and powerless, so the kingdom was quickly destroyed when Nanjing fell in July to the imperial armies after protracted street-by-street fighting.

Tianguifu and few others escaped but were soon caught and executed. Most of the Taiping princes were executed. Although the fall of Nanjing in marked the destruction of the Taiping regime, the fight was not yet over.

There were still several hundred thousand Taiping troops continuing the fight, with more than a quarter-million fighting in the border regions of Jiangxi and Fujian alone.

He later became the second and last leader of the short-lived Republic of Formosa 5 June—21 October Other "Flag Gangs" armed with the latest weapons, disintegrated into bandit groups that plundered remnants of the Lan Xang kingdom, and were then engaged in combat against the incompetent forces of King Rama V r. Their victims did not know where the bandits had come from and, when they plundered Buddhist temples, they were mistaken for Chinese Muslims from Yunnan called Hui in Mandarin and Haw in the Lao language Thai: With no reliable census at the time, estimates are necessarily based on projections, but the most widely cited sources put the total number of deaths during the 15 years of the rebellion at about 20—30 million civilians and soldiers.

The Nian Rebellion —68 , and several Chinese Muslim rebellions in the southwest Panthay Rebellion , —73 and the northwest Dungan revolt , —77 continued to pose considerable problems for the Qing dynasty. Occasionally the Nian rebels would collaborate with Taiping forces, for instance during the Northern Expedition. After the failure of the Red Turban Rebellion — to capture Guangzhou , their soldiers retreated north into Jiangxi and combined forces with Shi Dakai. He was not aiming his rebellion at Han Chinese, but was anti-Qing and wanted to destroy the Manchu government.
