The Peng Society for Gentlemen — a secret friend-making club for the homosexual men of the Great Xia Dynasty. Its services were designed to help its members along in their quest for their lifelong partners. Upon paying a monthly fee of fifty coins, members could get themselves listed in The Pengornisseur after providing a self-portrait, a mailing address, their age and hobbies, as well as a self-introduction. All members would receive a copy of the monthly publication, and they could communicate with one another in private using the information in The Pengornisseur.

Wu Xingzi, a bachelor about to turn forty, worked as the adviser to the magistrate in Qingcheng County.

Qingcheng County was a place with barely any resources. In other words, it was poor. In the list of counties of the Great Xia Dynasty, it had been ranked at the bottom for the past two hundred years.

Wu Xingzi felt that his life was hopeless: not only was he a homosexual, he was also a virgin. Even his retirement fund was lacking. Worse still, his looks were… forgettable.

He might as well die.

Hence, Wu Xingzi decided to commit suicide on his fortieth birthday. However, he was unwilling to remain a virgin to death! And so, gritting his teeth, he joined the Peng Society for Gentlemen and received The Pengornisseur. It was very painful; after all, fifty coins were the sum of his daily expenditure for ten days! He would only pay it once, and he was determined to succeed on his first try.

Translators’ Note: There’s gonna be lots and lots of sexy times in this novel, so… underaged people please close your eyes?

  10. I was confused for a moment thinking the end of the book was at chapter 70 and then realized is still on going the translation. I really enjoyed every chapter , many thanks for the hard work , I hardly find novels like these that are fresh for me as I used to read from west authors and are usually similar in a way. Is also the third translation I’m reading from this blog . Really thank you so much 😊

  11. Thank you so much for the translators. Waiting for the next chapters. Will surely miss Mr.Wu and General 😍

  15. This novel is just gold, is a must read!!! The MC is so adorable 🥺😍and the plot is funny and entertaining. Thanku so much for translating this novel ๐·°(৹˃̵﹏˂̵৹)°·๐

  16. Thank you so much for your translation. Can not even express or explain in words how much I enjoyed reading this.

  17. Oh wow, totally you have to respect the authors wishes but I can’t help but be a little devastated at the loss of it. Personally I was only 3/4 of the way through vol 3 so didn’t get the chance to finish it and it was my most recommended novel to others.

    Hopefully the author can work out a official English translation of it, that would be great.

    Also thank you to the team for translating this and everything else, your hard work is much appreciated!

  18. I can’t believe I missed the last seven chapters. I have been reading this diligently since the beginning. Every Monday morning. Life got busy in January but I finally found the time to finish this up. And nothing…
    I understand the wishes of the author to remove their work. They aren’t getting paid for their intellectual property. But I’m so sad I can’t finish this story after so long.
    Thank you for all your time translating this. It was beautifully done and always on schedule for we voracious readers.

  19. It was great while it lasted and I am happy we were able to enjoy the end of this novel, even if it was just for a short period of time.

    Thank you for your efforts you put into this, all the time, the love, the power to endure and translate the many nsfw chapters.

    Let’s hope an English publisher will realise this is a precious gem and publish it soon <3

  20. Please tell the author that I, like many, would welcome and buy the book translated into English! I didn’t get to finish the novel and definitely wanted to reread parts. It’s definitely good enough to own. Please beg for an official translation so I can finish!

  21. Okay! So, what exactly happened to all the translated chapters????? 😭😭😭😭 Im busy with my exams so I thought i would read it at once when im done with it but i came to check and its all gone (Naniiiii!!!!?) PLEASE POST IT BACK IF YOU HAVE BACKUP. 🥺 THANKS A LOT! You guys did a really good job in taking this novel. Not gonna lie, i dropped it after c6 because it was too smutty 🤤 and i live with parents (so no personal space to read smexy times b/w main 😭) Again, thank you for going thru my rant but please post it back or maybe add a pdf file of all the chapters in your dc channel if you’ve one(?).

  22. Reason why they removed the chapters was because the original author of the novel didn’t want their works to be posted without their consent. So most likely the author contacted the translation team to take it down and following the author’s wish they did it. Although really unfortunate, we gotta respect the author’s decision.

  23. So sad to see this taken down, but i also understand, hopefully it gets published in english soon, and so happy thatninwas diligently reading it every monday. Came back here for a re-read but alas its like watching an old friend leave

  24. Is this book license? I want to read it, it was recommended by a friend.

    I don’t mind buying if there’s official English available.
