The Lin and Xie case is an incident of a woman cutting off her husband's penis, that took place in Dongguan, Guangzhou, People's Republic of China in 2009. A family couple with husband Lin Mouru (林某儒, Mandarin: Lín Mǒurú, Jyutping: lam4 mau5 jyu4) and wife Xie Mouman (Simplified: 谢某曼, Traditional: 謝某曼, Mandarin: Xiè Mǒumàn, Jyutping: ze6 mau5 maan6) were in a decade-long marriage.[1] One day, husband Lin brought home a mistress, and requested that they have a threesome and live together. His wife Xie completely disagreed with the idea, and wanted a divorce. After a confrontational dispute, Xie cut her husband's penis off. The Dongguan court sentenced her to prison for 10 years.[2]


Xie Mouman (37 years old in 2009) is originally from Xinyi, Guangdong. In 1997 the couple married.[3] They have three children, aged 8–11 in 2009. In December 2008 Lin told his wife he had a mistress and he suggested they all live together in the same household.[1]

On February 24, 2009 Xie asked for a divorce, but Lin refused. The couple argued for five hours.[2] Xie alleged that he hit her multiple times and threatened to choke her and their three kids to death.[1] Two days later on February 26, 2009, Xie bought a pair of scissors from a grocery store. She cut his penis off while he was sleeping. Xie escaped from her home and ended up in Wanjiang District, Dongguan.[2] She was captured by the public security bureau (公安机关) two days later.


On July 27, 2009 Dongguan court sentenced Xie to 10 years in prison.[2]
