    As we all know the great fire wall of china makes authors be very careful in what they say and write and sometimes really censor their sex scenes, but I've often seen translators say in notes "I found the sex scene in the authors blog!"

    ... how do you guys find that? I've tried my best to filter weibo and baidu using google translator plugin but weibo hates me and baidu keeps giving me mirrors of the novel, basically.

    Novel is I'm an NPC 我是npc
    Author is Pour as Before 倾如故
    (The chapter the sex scene is cut out of is chapter 48 which I was in the middle of translating when I had to zip my pants back up.... )

    What magic do you guys employ to find the magiccccc

    It's normally posted in qq (or i think that is what they are using), so you need to create an account in it, and it seems they only accept china phone numbers, that is why i missed out on all the character drawings that the author posted in qq. similar to creating an account in baidu.

    Do you have insider information as to why explicit sexual content or even subtle sexual innuendos are illegal in CN novels? I never liked how the story feels skipped or suddenly they're intimate after a couple of chapters, censoring how they gotten so close.

    It's called "for the sake of the kiddies" because there's no such thing as sex in this world. Nuh-uh. Also, the ones getting hit are usually too...non-polite patriot for their tastes. Everything really depends on how the oldies feel at the time.

    Oh man... Reminds me of when I attempted to find missing scenes from BL novels, lmao. In the end, I've accepted my fate of never knowing. It's just sex anyway, how different can it possibly be. :blobsalt::blobsalt::blobsalt:

    If the papapa was posted with the original update before it was edited out, then I'm sure a pirate site somewhere has picked it up. Good luck :blobpopcorn_cool:
