@Glomoro in a fantastic spoof on Dante's inferno, the circle devoted to those swept away by their carnal desires there was all the sex you could get (while being blown around like a helium balloon in a hurricane) but no orgasm. Possibly a step worse.

@Aureliano I think she's more disappointed than jealous. Jinshi is easily capable of buying a fairly high level prostitute for good without lowering the price, and no matter why he wants to or how he intends to do it, it has made this entire outing (and possibly including the make down session) a bribe. None of this is reflecting well on Jinshi's standing in her eyes.

@DFM1412 The term eunuch usually refers to someone who's had their testicles removed. Even if the shaft is still there though, the loss of your balls will leave you producing less male hormones and thus less likely to even want sex, or be able to get it up and keep it up. It was mentioned in this series a ways back how the eunuchs often become somewhat more feminine as a result of the changes it causes on the body. They can even start experiencing hot flashes and breast growth as a result of the hormone level shift.

There's some leeway in how the term is applied due to differences in what it covers from culture to culture, too, though. I'm not sure what all is missing on the eunuchs in this story, but it's more likely to be the balls if just one or the other... or both. No balls, no shaft, or neither and loss of interest in sexual activities even beyond your physical ability or lack thereof to partake, all while employed in a place where you are basically surrounded by gorgeous women all the time. I wouldn't be surprised if that's one of the circles of hell.

so i guess her foster father is specialized in the diseases of women : he worked for the previous empress , and now he works in the red-light district .

in the back-grounds in page 8 and the onward pages , note that there are a lot of young couples walking around in front of the "love hotel" . page 13 : there is a young man buying a jewelry for his girl-friend / his wh0re , lol .

how to prevent rap* in a brothel : hiring a lot of big , strong pimps ? lol .

@Darklight99 Jinshi is a jerk and a huge dumbass, Maomao is already too nice to him. Plus everyone can tell Jinshi is hiding some terrible secrets, you can't trust him.

@Darklight99 while I agree with the fact that Maomao could be a little softer with her attitude, it's not like she is just being like that with no reason whatsoever. By the end of the day, no matter how nice Jinshi is to Maomao, he is of a noble bloodline. And as such, for a person who practically lived in an environment where she saw day and night nobles come and promise empty heavens and use their charm to get what they want to only discard all of it when they became bored of it, I honestly do not think that her attitude is that surprising.
She always thinks about her well-being as her top most priority and who else but her knows that a commoner involving herself with a noble is not a great idea. She but that does not change the fact that she simply wants to not get emotionally invested in something that might just be a whim of a bored noble, which at the end of the day is exactly how Jinshi's infatuation with Maomao began in the first place.
I actually enjoy the fact that she still acts the way she does, if anything it makes her stand out that much more.

Oooh so the "how to lower the price of a courtesan" is asked here. I like it. This chapter and date also gives more hints, other than being a fanservice for more romance (laughs).

Oh wow I'm an idiot didn't realise this was originally an LN lmao well more for my reading list then ๐Ÿคญ

I wonder if and when it will be published in the west. LN or manga, or both.

I feel sorry for him, Maomao isn't interested at all and is generally a bitch to him despite him being great towards her all the time, the fact that she's so highly accepted at so many places and isn't a low class prostitute is highly because of him, she could at least be grateful. I do like her a lot, everything except for attitude towards Jinshi.

@scruffy A lot of things happen in different ways and at different times in the novel, so it's not very clear cut.

That said this one scene (Maomao telling Jinshi about how to lower a courtesan prize) happens at volume 2 chapter 11

You are better off just reading from the start of vol 2 tho, just in case. You may miss some things otherwise.

The translation covers eight volumes so far, so you have material for a while. (And, unlike most LN translations, it's actually legible!)

For those that have read the web novel, what volume/chapter of the wn are we up to? I love this story sooo much so I’d love to read ahead.

This is why Maomao doesn't think too highly of Jinshi. The poor guy is always being misunderstood(though it's never anyone else's fault. Whenever something like this happens, it's always Jinshi shooting himself in the foot because he doesn't understand Maomao's autistic mind)

I am confused by this chapter. Need some time to sit back and think.

@wankerLin - or, if the courtesan wants to be sold to a particular (poorer) person, have sex with a willing accomplice and make it seem like you were raped.
