I have been teaching at a Univ in China for 4 years, so I have some insight into attitudes of young Chinese women. Your writer is correct - sex is never a classroom topic. But outside of the classroom, I have been offered sex for grades, and sex for, well, sex. I am a young American guy. There is clearly a strong undercurrent here.

When I briefly taught at a university in Shijiazhuang, one of my female students stood up during a class and said that her friend wants to sleep with me. Just out of the blue like that! This was in 2007 and I was only teaching there for 2 months at the time. You are right, there is definitely an undercurrent here!

I agree with you Patrick..Most of my students especially the girls will blush off if asked to sit beside a boy in the classroom..The idea of sex education is simply out of the picture in china. But the funny thing is that they tend to have sexual experiences even in their igorance which put them at a vulnerable position..Sex education must be encouraged among parents and even schools to help these ignorant sexually active generation to atleast take precautions.
