Thank you for your question.
Watching any kind of pornography is grave sin. Masturbation is also grave sin. Thus, whenever you indulge in these things you need to confess it in the Sacrament of Confession.
God does not seek to punish you. God loves you and understands your struggles. God is reaching out to you to forgive you and to heal you.
Your part is that you need to avoid those things that lead you to these sins. I suggest you follow the Steps to a Pure Heart and Mind. If you follow these steps you should, in time, find some relief and healing.
The struggle, however, will always be there, but I can say that the longer that we are chaste to easier it will be to stay chaste. We can never let out guard down, of course, but as time goes by is can become easier.
P.S. also check our Strategies for Healing section and generally look around our Site.
I do not know anything about what the Chinese government is doing, but the solution to your cravings is the same. Follow the Steps to a Pure Heart and Mind.
You can know that we are praying for you, we are here to help in any way we can.
