Controversial Sex Scenes in “Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles” Revealed thumbnail


TVB Anniversary television drama and one of the most highly anticipated dramas of the year, Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>, premiered on October 22 with a two-hour episode.  The grand period drama takes place in 1930s British Hong Kong and centers on a large, rich, and influential family led by the patriarch, Sir Arthur Chung (Damien Lau 名媛望族), Hong Kong’s first Chinese lawyer.

Revenge and envy has always been one of the most popular themes to be explored in Hong Kong television dramas, and these are also the fundamental themes found in the storyline of Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles. As the husband of four wives, Arthur is the center of attention and desire. However, one of the most intense scenarios to look forward to in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles is not the imminent argument scenes that are bound to happen between Arthur’s four wives, but the sex scenes.

Ron Ng and Elena Kong Get Intimate

Damian Lau (劉松仁) portrays Arthur, and as previously reported, he will be the center of the numerous intimate scenes of Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles. In episode 3, Elena Kong (江美儀), who portrays the third wife Yvonne, seduces Arthur while performing a sensual lap dance. In episode 9, Arthur and his fourth wife Hong Tze Kwan, portrayed by Tavia Yeung (楊怡), will have an intense kissing scene.

Elena Kong was well prepared to perform the sensual dance for Damian Lau. She revealed that she hired a professional dancer to teach her the moves. However, Elena expressed that her most intense scene in the drama was actually with Ron Ng (吳卓羲).

She said, “Ron and I made out for over a minute. We were all very professional, and filming went very smoothly.”

Elena explained that towards the latter half of the story, she loses favor in the family, and to satisfy her suppressed sexual desires, she starts an affair with Ron’s character, Kam Muk Shui. Elena also revealed that her character masturbates in the drama!

“After Damian marries Tavia, he starts to neglect me, so I get really bored,” explained Elena. “I think the [masturbation scene] is suitable, especially for my character. But I don’t know if that scene will make it into the final cut. It is a very controversial thing for prime-time television.”

Aside from sharing a sex scene with Elena Kong, Ron Ng will also be intimately involved with Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), who portrays Kwai Siu Yau. Muk Shui and Siu Yau are childhood friends and lovers. However, when Siu Yau mistakes Muk Shui to have died, she marries Arthur’s eldest son Charles, portrayed by Kenneth Ma (馬國明). Although Siu Yau does eventually fall in love with Charles, she later discovers that Arthur was involved with her father’s death. It is then when Muk Shui successfully seduces Siu Yau into bed.

How did Ron feel about his sex scenes with Elena and Rebecca? Ron said, “Elena took the initiative and I just followed her lead! As for Rebecca, she is still a rookie. We only did one take. There wasn’t much feel there.”

      the more controversial the better. go for it tvb!!!! time to bare it all

      • starry says:

        but i’m looking forward to Elena’s scenes. I wonder if all this sex is part of Damian’s rewrites.

    2. Jayne says:

      I’m a bit shocked by Elena Kong’s self-pleasure scene. Although it may be more implied than anything else, but still daring to incorporate such a scene in the script.

      So the downfall of Arthur’s family will be due to sexual desires and not gambling habits (hehe an old plot device).

      • Funn Lim says:

        Not sexual desires but deep down not everything is perfect and Arthur’s sexual needs probably drove them apart. Deep down they’re all jealous.

      • Veejay says:

        I actually find the “masturbating” scene kinda interesting imo, it shows how she felt lonely and somehow “cheated” by Damien after he married TY. However, i was thinking if TY could do this masturbating scene, maybe she can win Kate w/o any hassle..lol but I doubt she will sacrifice her pure image though.

      • Applelim says:

        Wow, Damien Lau has got a lot on his hands at his age in this series!! Wonder what netizens will say when this episode comes out!!

      • Gar says:

        I highly doubt they will include the self-pleasuring scene in a prime time drama when they know a lot of younger kids will be watching. Viewers will be complaining left and right about the inappropriateness. It would be very bold of TVB to do so and I don’t think they are ready to take this step yet as they are still pretty family oriented with their programs and series.

    3. Nicole says:

      LOL, This whole series is about sex?

      Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles? Rename it “Sexual Spooning Positions and Sterling Shackles for BDSM”.

      Since there was so much noise about Aimee Chan and her rape scene winning for BSA. Elena’s masturbating scene must be a bigger sacrifice than those rape scenes. LOL

    4. Funn Lim says:

      However controversial, it will probably last no more than 30 seconds to 1 minute and with the choppy editing it won’t be satisfying, no pun intended

      • Jayne says:

        The sex scenes in TVB dramas are not meant to be satisfying, just to make more noise for recent dramas.

        Kissing is no longer enough. It will be a matter of time before multi-partner sex is introduced in the dramas.

        • Funn Lim says:

          The only controversial thing about this series the class F (FAIL) editing. It has the worst editing so far. Choppy, jumpy, music is equally terrible. As for the so called sex scenes, so far ep 3 is Elena’s seduction scene and it started abruptly, ended abruptly and is shown for no reason than to just pull in ratings. It wasn’t sexy, it felt forced. It is still just kissing Jayne. It won’t be Taiwanese drama where actual bed rolling and stuff.

        • Addy says:

          I think the Elena seduction scene had a significance. It showed how lonely Mary Hon actually was, despite being Damian’s first wife. Mary Hon was obviously not very good at sex LOL

          But I agree with the choppy ending. That is probably why the Elena scene felt random.

        • Veejay says:


          I agree iwth you that Elena’s seducisive dancing was significant as to show how mary hon was neglegted by Damien but I dont agree that Mary is bad in bed, it’s Damien who has lost interest in Mary due to her “senior” age and Elena is way younger plus very sexy..

        • Funn Lim says:

          It shows Elena is not above using seduction to retain his heart. It also shows he is not interested in Mary sexually though they sleep on the same bed, probably because she is old.

    5. smurf120 says:

      So Elena and Ron is like Mrs. Robinson cougar scene??

      • purpletinted says:

        FYI, Elena is just 41 and Ron is 33, something like Koyuki and her husband, but Mrs Robinson is twice the age of Benjamin, if you are referring to the infamous story. Though the less could be said between Damian’s age and Tavia’s, who used to portray his daughter in The Awakening (where Lisa Wang was the mother) So, in terms of age and roles taken, the most ‘bleah’ factor would be the scenes involving Damien and Tavia since HE has had a hand in the scriptwriting. I wouldn’t mind if the main actors/ actresses are not involved in the scripts but all these scenes seem to be one taking great advantage over the situation… leaves a bad aftertaste.

        • Lee says:

          I think the OP was talking about the difference in their ages in the drama itself, but I agree – 41 and 33 is not quite cougar territory. On the subject of MatsuKen and Koyuki… what a weird couple, huh? Never saw that coming in a million years, but that’s Japan for you lol.

        • smurf120 says:

          I was definitely referring to character not real age since TVB is still casting Ron as early 20’s (chuckle) while still having the tendency to cast Elena closer to her real age.

          Damian and Tavia’s age difference makes me cringe but is not as noteworthy since every other drama casts the older guy/younger girl setup. AKA – I love him because he is good to me, you won’t understand, no one understands!!!

        • Jelly says:

          I thought she’s older than that. She looks old for her age. I puked when I watch her doing the lap dance.

    6. Hannahh says:

      wow looking forward to watch more eps.
      I doubt the masturbation scene will be broadcast.

    7. gold4canada says:

      just waiting for the phones to ring off the hook at tvb from housewives complaining

      • Josie says:

        I think the ‘C Lai’ wouldn’t complain as much if the men were a little bit hotter than fat Ron and old Damien.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Honest truth, Damien can turn on the charm and seduce and be sexier than Kenneth Ma. This old man is a pro.

        • Veejay says:

          Yes agree with you Funn, Damien can really be a better casanova than KM. He got the smexy smirking eyes.

        • Funn Lim says:

          But still I go ewwwwwwwwww over those kissing scenes.

        • Veejay says:

          haha, i find those scenes hilarious though.. and I was thinking “damn damien, r u sure u ddint added those scenes purposely?” hahaha.

          I’m actually waiting for the TY bitting lip scene.. cuz I wanna see how Damien a younger woman like TY

        • Funn Lim says:

          That scene probably when he marries his 5th wife, out of jealous rage she kiss-bites-chews him. More Ewwwwwwwwwww factor.

        • Veejay says:

          *how Damien handles a younger woman like TY*

      • Puff says:

        Agree re the ewwwww factor!!! I shudder at the thought of Damien kissing JJ.

    8. msxie says:

      will any of the actors be stripped down? it’s time for the guys to bare it all.

    9. Fox says:

      Borrow the words of someone: So now the series counted on the sex only, implied that the acting and plot is nothing.

    10. yxm says:

      So this is the type of series the dirty old man fancies. Intense making out, masterbating, sex … what about the threesomes, foursomes, fifthsomes? lol

      • jjj says:

        They should have a group sex scene where Damien has sex with all 4 wives at the same time……now that would be controversial!!!

    11. yxm says:

      Btw, i bet kenneth wished he was Damian’s character. He’ll get some action going on instead of just talking about it all the time :D

    12. Daisy says:

      I’m a bit disturbed :/

    13. Bobbie says:

      I wonder if theses scense are a result of 50 shades of grey?
      Also Damian and Kenneth’s characters are meant to be educated in england so the producer wants to add english lines in this series but the actors especially Kenneth’s english makes me cringe everytime.

    14. Linnh says:

      Ohh now I want to watch this series too, I am curious about Kenneth english haha

    15. Jen says:

      i don’t wanna watch uncle damian’s sex scenes

    16. EL says:

      This is what im talking about. Now tvb finally grasp the idea of exploring new things and idea, not just sticking to their old strategies.

    17. Gar says:

      “As for Rebecca, she is still a rookie. We only did one take. There wasn’t much feel there.”

      Ron must have wanted ‘more’ with her in order to satisfy his needs and desires.

    18. Lolly says:

      The sensual lap dance by Elena was laughable. Can’t imagine TVB producing controversial sex scenes. They will not risk offending all the si lai…

    19. Applelim says:

      Damien Lau certainly looks uncomfortable and stiff in the bedroom scenes with Elena Kong!! Think Tvb made a mistake with the casting here.

    20. E says:

      Let’s all get some popcorn and watch Hong Kongese fight for the fitness over this drama.

      Ron: Wow, surprise he answers like that. Someone is trying to be on the low-down :)
