Chinese sociologists said that the country should promote bolder attitudes toward sex, but that wife-swapping was off the agenda, state media reported Monday.

“Wife-swapping should not be promoted to the public as it will lead to the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases,” the China Daily quoted Zhang Feng, a family planning official, as saying at the fourth Guangzhou Sex Culture Expo at the weekend. [Full Text]

The comments were a response to a suggestion from prominent female sociologist and popular sex expert Li Yinhe at last year’s Sex Expo that wife-swapping was a legitimate form of entertainment. So far the story only seems to be running on state-run media.
