Students have unsafe sxx habits

GUANGZHOU - CHINESE college students are developing increasingly open attitudes toward sxx but do not have a strong awareness of safe sxx, a survey released on Friday has suggested.

Some 48 per cent of students polled in the survey accepted premarital sxx, the survey said. The study was conducted by the Guangdong provincial population and family planning commission and Guangdong provincial sexology association between Oct 9-15. The survey consulted 1,000 students at 10 universities in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province.

Only 34 per cent of respondents said they used condoms. Nearly 30 per cent of respondents said they did not think it was necessary to use condoms. The survey was released in conjunction with the opening of the annual Guangzhou Sxx Festival on Friday.

'Students are becoming more open to sxx because they have more knowledge of sexual freedom,' said Zhang Feng, director of the Guangdong provincial population and family planning commission. A regulation allowing marriage between college students, which was implemented in 2005, also partly contributed to the open attitude toward sxx among students, Mr Zhang said.

Mr Zhang said that they should improve their awareness of safe sxx and noted that about 17 per cent of respondents had suffered from sxxual diseases. Mr Zhang attributed the lack of knowledge about safe sxx to the way in which many students get their knowledge about sxx - from pxrnography.

The survey said more than 40 per cent of respondents said they had looked at pxrn websites or movies. 'My knowledge about sxx would be totally empty if I had not watched pxrn movies,' said a Guangzhou University student, who declined to be named. -- CHINA DAILY/ANN
