Chinese Youth Conflicted About Sex, Survey Finds

From Reuters:

A recent survey revealed that though China’s young people are more open about sex than previous generations, reservations about one-night stands and homosexuality remain.

“…more than 96 percent of the surveyed first had sex with their partner, rather than just a one-night stand. Nearly 20 percent first had sex before the age of 20. “The survey found that on the one hand they had sex earlier but on the other it was in a stable relationship,” the newspaper said. “This shows the contradictions felt in the first generation of single children towards sex.” Most did not approve of one-night stands, and almost three-quarters said they would never try homosexuality, the report added. Premarital sex and cohabitation were not generally felt to be problems, the survey found.”

According to a previous post on China Digital Times, previous surveys have also found a low occurrence of awareness about the spread of HIV/AIDS.
