Amy Yip

Amy Yip was an actress whose lithe frame and disproportionately large breasts made her one of the leading sex symbols of the Hong Kong cinema in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Amy Yip is best known for her roles in Hong Kong Category III films such as Sex and Zen and Erotic Ghost Story. Her efforts to avoid fully showing her breasts in adult movies through clever use of camera angles became known as the Yip tease.

Yip first came to notice by appearing in various television series' in the mid-1980s. Erotic Ghost Story in 1987 proved to be a breakthrough role and she became one of the most popular actresses in Hong Kong in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

She retired from acting in 1997 to get married.
