A new book that teaches “western Asian males” how to pick up Hong Kong girls, and encourages them to pick up foreign domestic workers on their day off, has divided opinion online.

The book, entitled Get Laid in Hong Kong, was written by an Asian American blogger and self-proclaimed “sex traveller” using the pen name TheLoneWolfTraveler.

Originally published in September 2014, the book has only just begun receiving media attention and is currently leading Amazon’s Top 100 best selling paid Chinese travel books.

In a preview of the book, the author describes Asian girls as “one of the most sexually attractive type [of] females out there, and the girls in Hong Kong are second to none”.

He writes: “I would have to challenge one’s manhood if he were to say he wasn’t interested in f*****g one of these girls from Hong Kong… A western Asian male would own the p***y in Hong Kong is he played the game right.”

The author then goes on to explain that Hong Kong girls are interested in Western culture, and that Western-born Asians symbolise “wealth and status” and are seen as having “higher value” than local Hong Kong Chinese.

“So just being an Asian from the Western world, you’re instantly elevated in status and in the dating and mating world of Hong Kong because in you, the local girls will see a Western male but yet still Asian (which is more accepted in their society and social circle than other races).

“Knowing this, you must incorporate and stress the fact that you’re a Western born and bred Asian male when reaching out to girls… It’s a tactic to employ that would get you on the top of the food chain. This would put you ahead of the competition, get you desired and sought after which would eventually lead to dates, sex, and a lot of fun.”

According to Apple Daily, the author recommends visiting 7-11 convenience stores late at night to see if there are any female employees worth picking up. Get Laid in Hong Kong also features a chapter about foreign domestic workers, and according to the paper, the author refers to them as young women who leave their homes “every night to sleep alone without a man”.

The paper reported that this chapter goes on to describe domestic workers on their day off as a “p***y buffet” since they have no time to find a man for sex and are “hungry”.

The book has divided opinion among Hong Kong web users. Critics of the book have called the author “trash” as well as “creepy and darn disrespectful to HK girls”.

However, others have argued that the book has an element of truth to it. One comment on the popular online forum HKGolden said the author was “telling a true story” whilst others have said it is true that Asian girls tend to like Western men more than locals.

According to a blog post on the author’s old blog, the person on the front cover of the book is someone he had sex with in Hong Kong.
