'Yellow Fever' Fetish: Why Do So Many White Men Want To Date A Chinese Woman?
Telegraph (UK) ^ | July 1, 2014

Posted on 07/13/2014 3:53:46 PM PDT by Steelfish

Chinese writer Yuan Ren lifts the lid on so-called 'yellow fever': a well-peddled myth that Asian women make better sexual lovers than other women, while at the same time, having no meaningful presence in politics and popular culture

By Yuan Ren 01 Jul 2014 Ever heard of yellow fever? No, not the disease you can pick up when travelling to certain countries. I'm talking about when Caucasian men develop an acute sexual preference for East Asian women – even becoming a fetish, for some.

Naturally, there are dating websites aplenty dedicated to 'serving' those men who have yellow fever, where the average East Asian women is increasingly being perceived as a desirable partner.

In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.

As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever. But it's subtle, and of course, few would admit to surfing online dating sites for Chinese women, yet when the only girls they date are Chinese, then the probabilities are in their favor.

Having said that, I'm surprised at what British men, both young and old, generally get away with when talking about East Asian women (Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc.) as well as South East Asian women (Vietnam, Thailand etc.)

There are sites for men to find brides from other countries. The common denominator is that American men are frustrated with liberal American female demands , and prefer to have a woman who has more traditional views of make female relations.

Of course the angry feminists are angry that men would reject them and try to find women who don’t have that modern feminist outlook on life. I myself would never consider this, but, just saying that some American men are seeking females from other cultures.

Smooth, unfreckled, glowing skin with a great color.

Thick, dark, flowing hair that perfectly sets off the
skin color.

Exotic.

Lips, eyes. Vivacious. Caring (until you marry them).
Cute, funny (until you marry them).

Basically, beautiful, fun girls (until you marry them).

The real question is why do so many Asian women want to date white men?

It doesn’t matter what the men want if the women don’t want them.

Why make such a big deal about who people are attracted to? As long as they are of the opposite sex, what’s the difference?

There is a historical record of caucasian men drawn to east Asian women. Here is a classic example from the '60s that I remember from my childhood.

I dunno.

Why are some men queers? But you’d never see a liberal write an article like this one on homosexual preferences, cause that would be racist.

Sexual desires run a gauntlet depending on the person.

I don’t know if it is true, I don’t know if it is only white men who like Asian girls, and I don’t know if they would write about black men and white women, or Asian men and white women, or Hispanic men and white women.

Some Asian men look like girls.... I don't think I would go with that, I would do whatever it took to make myself look tougher. But some Asian men just go with it......

Like "Ren" from a band called Nu'est

I find that’s the same with Asian women. They are, “very” on either side. They don’t seem to do average.

I think a larger question is, why are so many men attracted to foreign women (Asia/East European)? Can it be that American women aren’t desirable to a large number of men? (My opinion is yes - Typical American woman is not desirable to me).

A lot of Korean women like nerds. One of the reasons that studying is a national epidemic is that a lot of girls like them smart.

Get out of school and go to a hakwon till late. They had to pass a law to shut down the hakwons at midnight or something. Of course the kids can still go home and study.

Entertainer Yoo Jae-Suk is really popular with ladies, young and old.

“It’s a trap.”

Not nearly as much as American women are...it’s all a probability game. For a real (as opposed to sham) marriage, the odds are MUCH HIGHER for success with an immigrant that still has traditional values, than an American whose friends and familiy yell DIVORCE the first time the girl has a complaint. Just better odds, and much of that is due to who’s around them.

Eight years ago my cousin married a Phillipino gal he met thru one of those international dating sites. Due to his lifestyle, he's the last person I would ever have expected to marry ahead of me........

She loves his hunting and fishing and everything else, they have been a perfect match.

He's invited me to northern Michigan for their annual Phillipino picnic on July 26, obviously trying to match me up with a single gal.........LOL!

There’s a perception that American women are spoiled, slovenly, conniving, self-centered, arrogant, and just generally a pain in the ass to be around. In other words, they followed the Hillary model. I’d have to say it’s true in a frightening percentage of cases. Must have something to do with 30 years of girls being raised to believe they are oppressed, entitled, and that they can do no wrong. That said, I prefer eastern European women and latinas to most Asians (with a huge exception being made for Filipinas).
