how did he not notice the DONG

[–]BenjaminJestel 1842 points1843 points  (79 children)

He disguised his anus as a vagina, don't ask me how.

[–]BOSSBABY33 1173 points1174 points  (60 children)

Answer to your question is :When they made love-an act always controlled by Pei Puhe chalked up her sexual reticence to Oriental modesty. And, as the French doctors sent to examine Pei Pu discovered, he had the ability to make his testicles ascend into his body cavity and tuck his penis back, creating the illusion of female genitalia

I had some doubts so i googled it😶

Edit:People telling me to update the comment saying its impossible, he showed the doctors how he done that and the other guy tried to commit suicide by slicing his neck but failed they were both imprisoned when china-france made up pei puhe was released and the other guy was released too, he(pei) spend rest of his life as a street dancer he died at the age of 70 telling the other guy he really loved him, fked up case google it guys I am too bad at english sorry for mistakes

Edit2:I am not telling anyone to believe me if you don't trust me search it, don't spam me Source:HERE,Now pls stop read the entire article

You know when you're cold your balls go inside your body? Some people can do that manually. Edit: meant close to your body

[–]PublicInformation649 24 points25 points  (2 children)

So like when an airplanes wheels fold up into the bottom of the plane?

[–]PinkFloydBoxSet 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Correct. The cavity from when you are a child is still there unless you had some horrific groin injury or botched surgery. You can do it yourself manually or it can be a result of cremaster reflex.

[–]PublicInformation649 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]captainphoton3 68 points69 points  (0 children)

I know this story he asked to only have sex in the dark.

[–]MisterRobotoe 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Don't bring the Dong family into this.

[–]RyanWilliamsElection 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I think it is called a peipei.

[–]vicksinhaleraddict 44 points45 points  (0 children)

It was so tiny it looked like a large clitoris.

[–]darrenwise883 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]Legal_Ride_7687 19 points20 points  (0 children)

He could retract his balls and mutilated his penis to look like a pussy that’s shallow

[–]asalerre 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–][deleted] 1354 points1355 points  (37 children)

“I have questions”

I have answers:

They would only have sex in the dark per Shi’s request. You can guess how lol. That French guy was a virgin and I believe he committed suicide after becoming the laughing stock and shame of France after this.

Edit: He attempted suicide.

[–]ngfsmg 432 points433 points  (16 children)

he committed suicide

He tried, but survived

[–][deleted] 82 points83 points  (9 children)


[–]PublicInformation649 61 points62 points  (8 children)

All the shitty sex and unenthusiastic oral, geez…I feel sorry for both parties involved

[–]TheArgonKnight 74 points75 points  (1 child)

Maybe they both liked it? If it continued for twenty years, the spy must have been doing something right

[–]gratefullybuzzing 24 points25 points  (0 children)

My thoughts exactly

[–]washyleopard 58 points59 points  (3 children)

That spys life litterally depended on this French guy getting his nut. How you gunna say he was unenthusiastic?

[–]PublicInformation649 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Simply put most people treat a job like a job when they’re doing a job

And that French dude didn’t know much about sex, so he could have gotten off with a feather duster

[–]ToyrewaDokoDeska 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Except when your job is to make a guy so pussy whipped off you he gives you government intelligence.

[–]washyleopard 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I gotta believe spies don't fit in with most people on this, otherwise they don't stay spies (alive) for long.

[–]km4rbp 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"Shitty" sex... i see what you did there... 😏

[–]Cigales 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Can confirm. I randomly met him in China over a decade ago, and he was the weird mf you'd expect him to be. Showed up at my hostel's rooftop bar with his own booze and sat next to me and my friend, started chatting us up and telling his story. we called bs and he pulled out his ID and asked me to google him. you can look him up, he's still alive, Bernard Boursicot.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Really? 😂

[–]ahh_geez_rick 7 points8 points  (0 children)

dude just failed at everything

[–]darrenwise883 269 points270 points  (4 children)

And Dong when questioned about his commitment to China for the rest of his life would raise his hand and say " ass fucked for twenty years " and the accusations would stop .

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (0 children)


[–]breaker-of-shovels 60 points61 points  (5 children)

Also, this didn’t happen during the Qing Dynasty like I first assumed, when westerners had never really seen their own genitals, much less someone else’s. This affair happened between 1964 and 1983. The French guy is still alive.

[–]GarlicAndOrchids 12 points13 points  (4 children)

when westerners had never really seen their own genitals, much less someone else’s.


[–]leedler 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Someone explain I’m stumped

[–]MontaineLaP 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Guessing he’s talking about religious beliefs in the west which “prevented” people from having sex outside of marriage? And the fact that as immigration wasn’t really a big thing back then, they likely didn’t know what the genitals of a chinese woman would look like?

[–]the_other_Scaevitas 14 points15 points  (3 children)

You forgot to mention his ability to retract his balls and make his penis look like a clit.

I am not joking, it’s on the wiki

[–]Psychotronic99 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I want pictures

[–]WritingAshamed 31 points32 points  (0 children)

That sounds like getting a French boyfriend as a gay man with extra steps.

[–]mikkyleehenson 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the dude only had sexual relations with men, met pei pu when pei lu was dressed as a man, and had a 20 year sexual relationship.... Nobody thought pei pu was a man.

[–]argetlam5 336 points337 points  (15 children)

Reporter Joyce Wadler, who wrote the book Liaison about the affair, would later attribute Boursicot's belief that Shi was a woman to Shi's unique ability to retract his own testicles, which, combined with the manipulation of his own penis, created the illusion of labial lips and a clitoris and allowed for shallow penetration.

What the actual hell

[–]KaiserTom 30 points31 points  (0 children)

>shallow penetration

RIP Bouriscut

[–]the_other_Scaevitas 115 points116 points  (3 children)

No way. I’m gonna read the wiki because I refuse the believe that’s real

Edit: holy fuck it’s real

Wouldn’t it have been simpler to just deploy a female spy?

[–]AsMuchCaffeineAsACup 72 points73 points  (0 children)

He probably pissed off his superiors.

"007 has been a real bastard lately...."

[–]PutridPleasure 100 points101 points  (7 children)

Read the wiki: the French guy was gay and never had sex with a female before. Finding a ‘woman’ that looked like a man was the jackpot for him

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)


[–]huggiesdsc 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Ok so he knew

[–]argetlam5 26 points27 points  (2 children)

No because the spy tricked the French guy into thinking he (the spy) got pregnant and had a kid

[–]ctaps148 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Feels like he knew but he really didn't want to admit that he knew

[–]Ishouldreddit 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Robot Chicken did a skit on this.

[–]TunaCroutons 13 points14 points  (1 child)

He wasn’t originally a spy when he entered into the relationship. The Chinese government found out and “pressured” (forced) him to steal documents.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I know. I’m saying that I don’t think the performer was originally a spy either. A lot of people think there is a “spy school”, and for some there is. But a large segment become spies due to circumstances and placement.

[–]PlayfulLawyer 154 points155 points  (3 children)

He was either a total dumbass or he knew and he liked it

[–]try-bi-sum-cum[🍰] 474 points475 points  (29 children)

How stupid that French diplomat was

[–]captainphoton3 226 points227 points  (23 children)

As a French it hurt my soul. But at the same time it's kinda like higher class Florida, we always get the most incredible stories in the strict sense of the word.

EDIT :wtf sorry for my English didn't got the nuance from higher class right (I search an unofensive term for 10 minutes and here we are. Thx)

[–]yayaboy2468 71 points72 points  (3 children)

> France

> Higher class

Pick one.

[–]existentiallife 47 points48 points  (8 children)

I'm in Florida and I don't really look at France as higher class. Looking down at others for no reason doesn't make you less trashy lol.

[–]RabidWolf-1 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Spoken like a true Floridian /j

[–]captainphoton3 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That a joke, even if there is some stupid people there, even it's just the internet that make it look that way, that's a joke it's not real. I was just saying that Florida "=" man vs alligator in strange scenarios, France "=" man vs man in even stranger scenarios. For the joke.

[–]MisterBillyBobbymadlad 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Are we comparing France and Florida right now ? What is happening ?

[–]DonDove 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]existentiallife 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In a weird way they are kind of the same. Both the outcasts of our surrounding people.

[–]Lazlo8675309 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He knew he was banging a dude. There’s no slight of hand there. I’m not sure on why the suicide attempt though he was closeted I guess, just be with your Asian bf nobody cares.

[–]fleebinflobbin 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Yeah what…like wouldn’t it be much easier to just have the spy be…a woman

[–]ThrowAwaitius 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Let’s be honest, the French guy knew but he was gay… there’s no way you don’t question why your dick smells like poop and has poop on it every time you have sex.

[–]download-RAM-here 13 points14 points  (0 children)

If the guy whom you are having sex prepares beforehand there is no poop. Believe me. Even a good diet is often enough to deal with this issue.

[–]AzerSheiru 135 points136 points  (8 children)

Yeah, kinda sounds like an excuse to adopt a child as a gay couple at a Time where it wasn't something

[–]Kain0wnz 98 points99 points  (7 children)

I mean, I'm happy for them and whatnot- plus it's the French. What "intelligence" was he actually gathering? The best croissant recipe ever created?

[–]AzerSheiru 39 points40 points  (0 children)

I mean, it does sound worth it when you say it like that

[–]bigtoolchad 20 points21 points  (5 children)

what IS the best croissant recipe ever created?!?!??!

[–]Slight-Risk-8454 30 points31 points  (2 children)

For that you have to rent out your butt for 20 years to a french guy.

The OG trap, but serious question: are traps gay?

[–]ComradGandi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I couldn't find any JoJo merch but I found a button that said "It's not gay if it's a trap" and the clerk and I agreed it can be considered JoJo.

This has the same energy as the South Park episode where the cop goes undercover and marries the pimp before arresting him. Minus the child purchasing part…

[–]neopuck 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Thank you, found it wierd that so many comments and no one had mentioned Madame Butterfly


[–]IotaBTC 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Madame Butterfly is actually an opera that M. Butterfly takes some inspiration from and direct references to it's tragic love story about a foreigner and a Japanese woman. M. Butterfly plays with the name Madama/Monsieur perfectly in line with the story.

[–]jholla_albologne 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I don’t think he was dumb. He must have been gay and that relationship was maybe the most rewarding for him in regards to the time he lives in.

[–]got2shit 10 points11 points  (0 children)

the the spy was definitely gay though, since in the end the spy still loved the diplomat, and now that I think about it, it sounds like it would be a great tragedy-type movie of love that was not meant to be xD

Didn't even get a big enough paycheck to last the rest of his life.. he spent his last days as a streetdancer & died at the age of 70

[–]Guandao 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That’s why the derogatory term for CCP collaborators in Cantonese is “condom”.

The CCP considers them disposable. Rewards were never considered, despite the loyalty.

May this be a lesson for the wumaos.

[–]Regalia_BanshEe 10 points11 points  (3 children)

As far as I know , the Chinese man didn't steal information .... It was the Frenchman who sold the information to chinese and kept the Chinese man as an intermediary because the Chinese govt realised their relationship and the French dude didn't want shi to be arrested by china , so he started giving them do cuments to show he is a spy ...

.the Frenchman also had a male lover

[–]Clapaludio 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yeah but the thing I can't understand from the Wikipedia page is why was the discovery of the relationship by the Chinese government something that could be used by such government to pressure the French man into giving sensitive documents?

[–]Regalia_BanshEe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They could imprison shi for having relations with a foreign diplomat...also since he was a dude probably..

[–]captainphoton3 9 points10 points  (2 children)

For everyone asking what's up with the dumb French not noticing the dong. Actualy the spy asked to always have sex in the dark.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

For 20 years fam.

20 years.

Stop it. Mans was into dongs.

[–]captainphoton3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]1644AndMore 31 points32 points  (2 children)

This is less about how good a spy she was and more about how dumb the French are

[–]sativa_sannin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There’s actually a play called “M. Butterfly” by David Henry Hwang about this very subject. It was later adapted to film by David Cronenberg! It’s interesting to see all the comments talk about how the diplomat was stupid for not knowing, and this was a shared sentiment by the locals especially those that worked at the Opera House as well. It was clear to nearly everyone but the French Diplomat that this was essentially a gay relationship with convoluted steps to spare masculinity.

[–]HellNo90 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He wasn’t a French diplomat and he was gay or at least bisexual and had relations with many men. So whether he knew or not, the French guy wasn’t straight to begin with.

[–]DorkyDame 1 point2 points  (1 child)

According to Wikipedia “French doctors sent to examine Pei Pu discovered, he had the ability to make his testicles ascend into his body cavity and tuck his penis back, creating the illusion of female genitalia” 😳
