    Gaming? YES. Porn? Absolutely forbidden in EVERY internet cafe I visited in my 3 weeks in China. I traveled across the country and there is NO PORN being viewed. There are actually state monitors walking up and down the aisles while you surf the internet. They are looking over your shoulder and YES the Great Firewall of China does exist and is very effective at censoring BOTH political (negative Chinese stories) and pornographic sites.

    Believe that.
