Chinese high school sex survey surprises sex specialists
A survey carried out on high school students in Beijing finds that the average age when they first had sex was about 15 and that most are promiscuous, surprising many sex specialists in China. From China Daily:
"The new generation is open-minded about sex, indeed We can only conclude that it is a result of a fast-changing society," Zhang Meimei, professor of education at Capital Normal University, said yesterday. He was involved in the survey sponsored by the district education commission.
Of the 1,300 girls asked if they would agree if their boyfriends sought sex, only six gave a definite "no".
The typical answer: "As long as he loves me, it's OK."
About 200 boys and girls said they were willing to have a one-night stand if an opportunity arose.
Those in a more serious relationship said they would most likely have sex after graduation from high school.
About 30 percent believed that teen sex is fine as long as it is consensual, and 55 percent said it depends on how much the two love each other.
