I think if the CCP is going to ban all this sexually suggestive stuff, they really ought to implement sex ed into high schools. That way it can be a two-part message: "These things are giving you the wrong message and teaching you the wrong things; here is what you need to know..."

Zglobal, you're right, most people don't learn about sex itself from sex ed. What people do learn is protection, details about what exactly happens, and possible consequences. Though some rudimentary form of sex ed started (for me, anyway) in around 6th grade. They take the boys into one room and the girls into another and explain puberty. We got similar lectures once a year for the next years until high school, when we had to take the one-semester Health and Wellness class.

China bans "sexual sounds" on airwaves

reuters

China has banned "sexually provocative sounds" on television and pulled the plug on a show reconstructing infamous crimes by women ahead of a major  Party meeting next month.

The order, issued by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, is the latest in a raft of measures which have included axing reality shows featuring sex changes and plastic surgery and banning talent contests during prime-time.

"Sexually suggestive advertisements and scenes showing how women are influenced into a life of crime are detrimental to society," it said in a statement posted on its Web site on Wednesday, referring to its decision to axe "Red Question Mark," a crime documentary.

"Commercials containing sexually provocative sounds or tantalizing language as well as vulgar advertisements for breast enhancement and female underwear are banned, effective immediately," said the SARFT notice.

The watchdog also ordered an end to programs with titles including the names of "sex-related drugs, products or medical institutions."

A total of 1,466 advertisements worth 2 billion yuan ($246 million) in revenues had been stripped from China's airways since August, SARFT said, citing department statistics.

It earlier urged the country's increasingly freewheeling broadcasters to forgo vulgarity and bad taste in the pursuit of ratings in favor of providing "inspiring" content for the masses imbued with socialist values.

Most nations throughout history have managed quite well without sex education.

Question: Why is it that Britain has the highest teenage pregnancies in Europe even though their educational system has sex education built into the curriculum?

Fact: In England alone about 90,000 babies are born to teenage mothers a year, six times the number in the Netherlands and four times that in France. Britain was level with these countries 25 years ago.

Reason: Some think that there is a connection between too much sex education, free advice and contraception and the record levels of teenage pregnancies.  Children are bombarded by sexual imagery without reference to the responsibilities associated with sexual activity.
