back to article Chinese media finger Swedish lesbian enclave

Chinese media have confirmed what we in the West suspected all along: that concealed in the northern Swedish woods is a city of 25,000 women, many of whom have turned to Sapphic love to satiate their natural Scandinavian sexual desires. According to news agancy Xinhua, the all-female enclave is called “Chako Paul City”, and …

    I am stepping outside....I may be sometime.

    If an expedition is being planned I am willing to volunteer my services, Even at the risk of a good beating from the lesbians and no doubt another good kicking from the girlfriend when I get back home.

    This mythical place must be found :-)

    simply way to find out

    Google earth it and see if its true

    What

    Theres no Google Earth link??

    Am very saddened by this..

    But on a lighter note i think we should start an expedition there for "Scientific purposes"

    I found this place

    Its tricky because it only appears between the hours of 12.00 and 06.00 and only when the wife is asleep.

    ohh sorry I'm asleep as well.

    i'll get my coat.....

    'Fraid not...

    Having been up in northern Sweden a few times, (to Umeå and Luleå mostly) I can confirm that there is snow and lots of trees, and semi-permanent roads etched onto frozen rivers, but no lesbian cities...

    What was the source of this story? When you say "the Chinese media" which Chinese media would that be?

    I'd just kind of like to see this in it's original context!

    Question for the Tourist board.

    '..... risk being “beaten half to death” by Nordic gender police.......'

    Is that a chargeable extra or does it come as part of the package?

    Traveller: "Of course I'm not a man. Look at my artfully applied make-up and my beautiful brown curls. And this unsightly bulge 'tis merely a canoe in my pocket. May I enter now?"

    Blonde Sentry (doubtful): "That's one helluva canoe! And why are you carrying several pots of baby oil and those large rubber, funny-shaped sticks? Are you sure you're not a man?"

    Fingering again

    You've done that particular play on words quite recently - can we have a bit of variety please? Do Swedes refer to a large built-up area in the wilderness to a big spread in the bush? That should give you something to get you going.

    It's also a shame you didn't give a link to the area on Google Earth. As this sounds like the ultimate seat of female pleasure, you need to give us blokes an awful lot of assistance in finding it. Drawing a map would be a good start.

    I'm sure the lovelies in Sweden will appreciate a thumbs-up.

    Partly true

    Actually there is a village, where an aquaintance of mine lives here in the south of Sweden, where about 38% of the population are lesbian.

    The village only has 8 houses though, and 3 lesbians.

    Capital idea

    I propose a Reg funded expedition. I suggest we bring the Moderatrix along to curry favour with the guards, or perhaps mealy distract them, so that we may slip into the city unnoticed.

    No, it's OK. I can show myself out.

    "This story is pretty mild compared to most of my fantasies."

    But does it have more of a plot?

    Personally, I think this is brilliant premise for a pulp novel. But I fear that it would be a hard path (fnarr fnarr) in writing to tread between a disappointed reader and getting a publisher.

    With all due respect: you, esteemed sir, are going off half cocked. Both the El Reg article and my comment refer to The Local (see, capitalized), which is the origin of this story. What The Local is local to, I can only guess. (Sweden, or a part thereof?)

    Here's the URL again, so craftily hidden at the top of my previous post:

    The article in The Local does have a screenshot with an attribution to jx.xinhuanet.com. Now looking for a Chinese speaker to give us the details.

    FOUND IT!

    Err.... The article in Xinhua news, I mean... Not the city...

    ...Sorry...

    Here it is (Google translations is your friend):

    http://jx.xinhuanet.com/travel/2009-08/06/content_17322231.htm

    Not only it is still on the site, it can still be found using the search tool from the main site. This is from the site of the Jiangxi branch, Jiangxi being the local equivalent of Arkansas.

    The Chinese Wikipedia does have a page on the city, but it is denying its existence:

    http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B2%99%E7%A7%91%E4%BF%9D%E5%B8%82

    But who are you going to believe, the glorious communist media, or a western fake encyclopedia?

    By the way, a Google search for 沙科保 (the name of the city in Chinese) returns 61'000 sites, quite a few being news site. This is not a recent story.

    Awesome. Not surprisingly the author of the original article is "Min Chun (intern)".

    The second article on that page is just as good. If I can interpret the translation correctly, the people of Martinique never bend over to pick up anything, even valuable items. This is because French invaders used to "Sri Lanka disgrace them" (sounds horrible) and ride the people like horses. After a brave individual threw off his French rider they decided never to bend over for anyone or anything.

    Lesbians (a primer)

    Lesbians prefer women as sexual partners, obviously. Why would any men want to go there?

    It's difficult enough to find straight women to go to bed with, never mind women that aren't sexually attracted to men!

    Whenever I hear about men being excited about lesbians I wonder about their mental processes.

    Bi-sexual women who are into open-arrangements on the other-hand are to be sought...

    World Wide Linked Secret Lesbian Sin Cities

    The Irish Media are reporting a secret village in Kerry of Naked Lesbian Leprecauhns who it has emerged voted for the EU Lesbian Treaty.

    UK media are reporting the uncovering of a Secret Lesbian City with Nordic Gender Police-womans near Newcastle but not as far south as Sunderland.

    There are reports from the Oz media that no such Secret Cities exist near Sydney (Blue Mountains?) or even Perth (But they would say that the Chauvinistic Bastards)

    Though a Secret Pert Naked Lesbian City would do no end of good to the turist trade.

    As it seems to have done for the frozen wastes of Sweden:+]

    If you look up "The Local" Swedens English Language News website...

    The picture is definitely an example of Scottish Baronial, circa 1880s. So it's no wonder the Swedes are baffled. Probably the real location are the forests west of Inverness, and the women probably keep Nessie as a pet!
