Sex expert mocks those offended by 'racist' 'Kung Fu Vagina video

Sex expert whose ‘Kung Fu Vagina’ music video was called ‘racist’ and ‘disgusting’ now MOCKS her offended viewers – calling critics ‘whiners’ for their ‘under-f***ed idiocy’

  • Kim Anami, who lives in Los Angeles, debuted the offending music video in to February promote her ‘Vaginal Kung Fu Salon’ online course
  • Critics accused her of wearing yellowface, mixing up and disrespecting Asian cultures, and generally promoting racist ideas
  • Anami initially removed the video, but has now reposted it — as well as a fake ‘apology’ in which she pretends to cry before laughing at her critics
  • She calls her video a ‘brilliant and epic orgasmic extravaganza and tribute to women, vaginas, and the art of kung fu’
  • She ‘apocalyptically orgasmed as I made that video’ and blasted the ‘miserable’ people she hurt, telling them: ‘You cowards can go f*** yourselves’

A self-proclaimed holistic sex expert who came under fire last month for a music video called ‘Kung Fu Vagina’ has now issued a message to the many social media users who blasted the video as racist: And she thinks they should ‘go f*** themselves.’

Kim Anami debuted the original music video on social media in February to promote her ‘Vaginal Kung Fu Salon’ online course, proudly posting the clip of herself wearing stereotypical Asian costumes while singing a re-imagined version of the 1974 song ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ — but this time, with lyrics about vaginas and orgasms.

But the campaign quickly went awry when countless social media users accused her of being racist, dressing in yellowface, and mixing up Asian cultures, all while slamming the video as ‘highly offensive.’

Anami seemed to cower from the backlash at first, taking the original video down — but now she is back with a new video in which she laughs at those whom she upset, calling them ‘whiners’ and proclaiming that she ‘apocalyptically orgasmed as I made that video, as so many others have in the viewing of it.’ 

Called out: A self-proclaimed holistic sex expert came under fire for a music video called ‘Kung Fu Vagina,’ which rhapsodizes about jade eggs while embracing Asian stereotypes

Offensive: Kim Anami debuted the video in February, posting the clip of herself wearing stereotypical Asian attire while singing a re-imagined version of 1974 song ‘Kung Fu Fighting’

Hurtful: The video has been blasted as ‘racist,’ ‘offensive,’ and ‘disgusting,’ particularly by Asians and Asian Americans 

Not taking it seriously: Anami initially removed the video, but has now reposted it — as well as a fake ‘apology’ in which she pretends to cry before laughing at her critics 

Anami’s video faced widespread criticism in February, particularly from Asian and Asian-American journalists and social media users who found it racist, harmful, and offensive.

But Anami has now made it clear that she’s completely unconcerned about upsetting such a large group of people. 

‘There was quite a kerfuffle a few weeks back around a viral video I released called Kung Fu Vagina: The Musical,’ she said dismissively.

‘I wanted to take this opportunity to let anyone who was offended by the video know that I’ve thought long and hard about this,’ she went on, appearing to begin crying.

But then, she pulled away the tissue she used to show that she was not crying at all — but was actually smiling broadly, seeming to mock those she upset.

‘I appropriately expressed myself in the creation of Kung Fu Vagina: The Musical, putting together a brilliant and epic orgasmic extravaganza and tribute to women, vaginas, and the art of kung fu,’ she insisted.

‘I apocalyptically orgasmed as I made that video, as so many others have in the viewing of it,’ she added, pretending to fake-cry again.

‘I applaud free speech, and all those who have the courage to express their truth, especially in the face of under-f***ed idiocy,’ she went on.

She also accused some internet users of being ‘duped’ into allowing other people to enforce censorship, complaining that those who were upset by her video are just ‘whining,’ ‘miserable,’ and ‘under-f***ed.’

To those who were hurt and upset by her video and criticized her for it, she said: ‘You cowards can go f*** yourselves.’  

Anami, who had temporarily taken down the original music video, has also put it back up.  

‘That’s right,’ she wrote in a tweet last month, promoting its release. ‘It’s Kung Fu Vagina. The music video! In honor of another season of my legendary Vaginal Kung Fu Salon, we now have our own song. Come and see all the amazing things vaginas can do!’ 

The eight-week Vaginal Kung Fu course promises to ‘Strengthen and Tone the Vagina and Turbo-Charge Your Orgasms’ — and while the name itself has been called problematic, it’s the music video that left so many people furious and disgusted. 

Dress-up: While the original music video includes some Asian women, everyone is dressed up in mock-Asian outfits, with chopsticks and even fans in their hair

Trouble: As several critics have pointed out, Anami’s video not only co-opts Asian cultures, but mixes them together, picking references from China, Japan, and even Thailand

In Anami’s version, the lyrics go: ‘Everybody wants a Kung Fu ‘gina / It starts with jade egg from China. / No need for lube or saliva / to become a vag messiah’


Ouch: She also lifts several weights with her nether parts in the video

As fashion watchdog Diet Prada pointed out, ‘The clichés are instant with the opening title design utilizing a “wonton font,” a style of typeface designed in the late 19th century to appropriate visual characteristics of Asian writing systems.’

Use of the font has been called lazy, racist, and unimaginative. 

‘Soon, the song reveals itself to be a parody of Carl Douglas’ “Kung Fu Fighting,” the catchy but problematic disco song from 1974,’ Diet Prada went on.

While the song was quite popular at the time of its release, both its lyrics and its melody have been called racist and a ‘caricature.’ 

In Anami’s version, the lyrics go: ‘Everybody wants a Kung Fu ‘gina / It starts with jade egg from China. / No need for lube or saliva / to become a vag messiah.’

In addition to the lyrics and font, Anami signals an Asian vibe with her costume, made up of a kimono — which is Japanese, not Chinese — and chopsticks in her hair. 

As Cosmopolitan’s Carina Hsieh pointed out, ‘The use of chopsticks in hair is widely known to be a reductive caricature of Asian culture.’

The scene is set with shoji screens, paper lanterns, souvenir robes, and other stereotypical ‘Asian’ decor.

Furor: It wasn’t long before the video went viral, capturing the attention of thousands of critics 

‘Why? Why did this have to be made at all? Why couldn’t this have been made without using harmful “Oriental” tropes? But alas… white people,’ Diet Prada wrote

‘This video is so offensive. Do you not have any Asian friends?’ asked one critic

‘That’s right! A highly offensive and deeply problematic video to promote your business. Yay?’ one Twitter user commented

As several critics pointed out, Anami’s video not only co-opts Asian cultures, but mixes them together, picking references from China, Japan, and even Thailand and treating Asia as a ‘monolith.’

It wasn’t long before the video went viral, capturing the attention of thousands of critics. 

‘Why? Why did this have to be made at all? Why couldn’t this have been made without using harmful “Oriental” tropes? But alas… white people,’ Diet Prada wrote.

‘That’s right! A highly offensive and deeply problematic video to promote your business. Yay?’ one Twitter user commented.

‘I’m not looking forward to the teary eyed, non-apology apology that will be coming in 3-5 days,’ quipped another. 

‘This video is so offensive. Do you not have any Asian friends? If you did they’d tell you this was such a bad idea. I hope you take these criticisms to heart and take it down,’ said yet another.

Others have called the video ‘disgusting,’ ‘cringey,’ ‘trash,’ and ‘terribly racist.’

‘Widen your circles the point where one of your friends might tell you when you have bad ideas,’ one commenter advised. 

Showing it off: Anami soon deleted the video from Instagram and YouTube, but has since reposted it on her website

Not happy: Commenters called the video ‘disgusting,’ ‘cringey,’ ‘trash,’ and ‘terribly racist’

‘It’s completely shocking and incomprehensible that you thought racism would be a cool marketing gimmick for your brand. A culture is not a costume. Wow,’ said another.

On Instagram, actress Jamie Chung, a second-generation Korean-American, wrote simply: ‘What. The. F***?’ 

‘It’s 2021. They know what they’re doing. Don’t accept the apology that’s coming next week,’ another commenter chimed in. 

In addition to complaints about the song and music video, some sex experts have also come forward to slam Anami’s claims about jade eggs, countering that they don’t work and also ‘play into stereotypes of Chinese women from yellow peril.’

‘These ideas of the Chinese woman as sex mistress come from the late 1800s,’ Linda Fan, MD, director of the gynecology section at Yale Medicine, told Cosmopolitan.

‘Chinese men were working on the railroads and mines in the U.S., and the Chinese women were abducted and enslaved as prostitutes.

‘This is the sort of thing that perpetuates rape culture and allows the world to look the other way while sexual slave trade persists in Asia,’ Dr. Fan said.

Meanwhile, Dr. Jennifer Gunter, an OB-GYN, stresses that using jade eggs and vaginal weights to strengthen pelvic floor muscles is no more beneficial than traditional Kegel exercises.
