David's poem "Sexism" was on his play list during our travels in China and Mongolia and aroused the same reactions there as he's gotten in the States. Here's Deggie (short for Delgermaa) reading the poem to university students in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia:
The students love "Sexism" and tend to take sides: Is it an accurate depiction of male and female behavior? One young man in the classroom shown in the video came to the defense of his brethren, saying that not all men are so quick to leave the conjugal bed.

During our visit to the Zanabazar museum in Ulaanbataar, the poet Mend-Ooyo made sure we saw "One Day in Mongolia," the country's most famous painting, by B Sharav (1869-1939). The painting is Bosch-like in its detail and amid scenes of felt-making, sheep butchering, and other activities of daily nomad life, there's a good deal of robust fucking going on. "Sexism," said Mend-Ooyo, pointing to one such depiction.
