What emerged five years later, after hundreds of hours of research, including interviews with men and women who posted ads for Asian women on sites like Craigslist and Asiafriendfinder, was "Seeking Asian Female", an eccentric, tender and at-times uncomfortable love story between a 60-year-old American man and his 30-year-old Chinese fiancée.
I heard from Asian, Asian-American and many other women about their encounters with this so-called "yellow fever." I even interviewed a Chinese woman who's a yenta for men seeking Asian wives in Silicon Valley. Around 500 BCE, Confucius outlined relationships in which wives looked up to their husbands in perfect harmony.Throughout all this, a common thread emerged: myths and misconceptions about Asian women are as strongly held as ever. Times have changed, but the myth that Asian women make doting and dutiful wives still persists.Understanding the difference between fantasy and reality made all the difference for these people and the true stories they shared.

The harder truth is, the Asian sex (and trafficking) trade remains one of the largest and most lucrative in the world, making Myth No. If you pay for it, sex with Asian women is "easy." This may sound obvious, but not all Asian women are prostitutes, and none of the women we interviewed believed Myth No. The racist myth that "all Orientals look the same" was debunked long ago, but it bears reminding all Asian women are not the same either.
