Students in Shanghai receive sex education through Internet
( 2004-01-08 17:17) (Xinhua)

Students in Shanghai have begun to learn about sex through a special website for sex education set up by the city's Institute of Planned Parenthood Research (SIPPR).

It was agreed that most Chinese youth had little opportunity for sex education, said Lou Chaohua, an expert with the institute.

Teachers' awkwardness in class and their insufficient understanding of such knowledge often ruined schools' sex education efforts, Lou said.

According to a survey made by SIPPR, 62 percent of parents in Shanghai had not received systematic education on sex.

The expert said that youngsters could only acquire informal sex- related knowledge through TV and magazines.

"Referring to some relevant topics, we were too embarrassed to communicate with students", said Lu Yi, teacher of Shanghai Xiangdong Middle School.

"This kind of education includes both unilateral information gathering and bilateral interactive communication," Lu said, "and now what we need to do is to ask the students to log on to the Internet and educate themselves in private."

"We can easily get answers to questions that we are not willing to raise with teachers or parents," said a student of the school, "it is an easy and safe way to learn something about sex."
