Sex Education: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
Chinese Women Pay for Sex Ed Classes
For two days, women gather in Shanghai hotel rooms to listen to a woman named Ma Li, an American sex coach who teaches her female students about sexual techniques and even basic anatomy (many Chinese enter adulthood having little knowledge about the opposite sex's equipment).
"I had absolutely no sex education at all. I thought adult male bodies look the same as baby boys'," Sophia Hu, a 30-year-old lawyer who took Ma's class told Reuters.
Ma's classes, which cost 0 and have been available since January, are part of a new wave of adult sex ed coming through China. In July, Chinese sociologist Li Yinhe partnered with sex educators to host a safe-sex workshop at the Chinese Academy of Social Science in Beijing. But, unlike Ma's more under-the-radar classes, which sell out weeks in advance, Li's tutorial was closed to the public due to its subject matter and only managed to attract 50 students and professors. (Li is now working to create a national, mandatory sex-ed program in Chinese schools.)
China's conservative attitude toward sex discourages people from talking about it publicly and gives little incentive for schools to provide sex education, making Chinese adults more or less clueless about even the most rudimentary aspects of getting it on. In 2011, one couple made headlines for not being able to conceive a child after three years of trying. The issue? They never actually had sex. Because they thought that simply sleeping in the same bed together would produce a pregnancy. (The guy had a doctorate degree and the woman her master's so they certainly had intellectual capital.)
But it's not just isolated incidents like this couple that highlight the need for real sex ed in China or even explain why women are so willing to drop so much money on sex ed as adults. Rather, it's these statistics: In 2010, a Peking University study found thathalfof the unmarried young people in China who are sexual active have unprotected sex. Another study from 2009 found that only9 percentof Chinese under age 25 know how to put a condom on properly. Unsurprisingly, STD and HIV contraction rates have significantly risen across the country. (And, on an even more dire note, last month a sexuality expert made a statement at the Asian Conference on Sexuality Education that the increase in sex crimes against children in China is linked to the country's lack of real sex education.)
Clearly, saying that there's a need for women like Ma and Li — and the education they're trying to spread — is an understatement.
