NSFW Heart-Shaped Boob Challenge Goes Viral On Chinese Social Media

Social media has been full of challenges, each inviting users to perform some difficult, just plain strange, and always arbitrary task. In America, we had the Mannequin Challenge in all its frozen-face glory; the Ice Bucket Challenge and its glib promises of donating money to ALS. Some fads even strike a chord overseas, as we saw with Japan taking on the Watermelon dress craze earlier this summer.

However, some challenges are not for the faint of heart or boob. China’s newest craze is the”Heart-Shaped Boob Challenge,” wherein women wrangle one of their breasts and try to contort them into a beautiful, romantic heart shape with their hands. Both painful and NSFW, the bust-busting trend has gained tremendous popularity over social media platform Weibo.

According to the seedier denizens of the Chinese web, the lascivious lunacy began when a soft pornographic Chinese cam hostess named Xi Tai Lǜ attempted the stunt to score more monetized goodies from her lustful fans this past July.

Close to 1900 livestreamers and 73 streaming services have been banned from China for obscene material in just the past six months alone.

The breast that launched a thousand copycats!

Now, China has strict censorship laws forbidding pornography, but that is hardly enough to keep dozens of women from trying to keep up and curve their chests as part of the challenge.

Many of the photos ended up deleted or censored, but news of the challenge itself caught on quickly like anything involving the female anatomy with over a million and a half mentions of the challenge appearing in Weibo posts.

Last year, we reported on the social media fad where Chinese women were eager to prove that their waists are thinner than a sheet of A5 paper, which resulted in accusations of body shaming and unhealthy image promotion.

And the “Heart-Shaped Boob Challenge” is already gaining critics and naysayers. Weibo user @Haoyyao lamented how “If you try with small breasts, you won’t even be able to make a triangle.”

There have also been several men who have attempted the challenge with their “boobs” with varying degrees of success.

It just goes to show that when pornography is banned, the people will find other ways to titillate the masses!
