no details as to the number of people polled, cities polled, their income bracket, location, standard of living, marital status, etc begs the question: "Is this study accurate? or was it conducted in a biased manner to get as high of a figure as possible? Perhaps it was only in Beijing or Shanghai.. perhaps it was financed and supprted by the International Porn Industry, as these types of studies are often sponsored by groups which have a keen interest in their outcome.

Expert: Chinese more open to sex

Sex, a centuries-old taboo considered by most of Chinese, is creating a buzz in this conservative country.

Claims that approximately 25 percent of Chinese adults had multiple sex partners in 2006 by Pan Suiming, director of Institute of Sexuality and Gender at Renmin University of China, has prompted society to open debate over whether China has become morally corrupted.

Pan said having multiple sex partners is partially indicative of a sexual revolution, during an interview with Life Times on July 6.

Touching the surface of a topic the whole nation is trying to avoid, the sexl scholar believes the Chinese are getting closer to an open and transparent attitude toward sex.

Pan's shocking claims were part of his survey Chinese's sexual behaviors and relations: 2000-2006 of 6,010 Chinese aged between 18-61. The sex survey asks about premarital sex and homosexuality, both of which are on the rise on the back of the country's double-digit economic growth.

The practice of having sex with more than one other person gained a momentum in the last few years. Its rate occurrence advanced to 25.3 percent in 2006, from 16.9 percent in 2000, a seven percent increase from the same period last year.

The figure was six percent in the 1980s, a time when China launched its reform and began opening up its economy to the rest of the world.

Pan's findings are unpopular, as many believe the sharp-rise in people having more than one sexual partner indicates the country is on the verge of falling from morality.

"Loyalty to marriage is an enduring theme of society and has a deep place in people's souls. His findings cannot change that fact," a netizen, only identified by his nickname Xiao.Xiao.Xiao wrote on the popular

But the expert defied public opinions, arguing the results of his survey marked a progress in people's attitude toward sex.

His findings indicate women, usually passive in sex, are becoming more active in the bedroom.

"The exodus of women from rural areas to urban cities has contributed to the changes in women," explained Pan.

He added that the improvement in women's education is helping them get rid of the conventional stereotype that women are for bearing and raising offspring for men.

"The longing for of love and happiness has led to changes in women's attitudes toward sex," said Pan. "And easy access to abortions and birth control have also had a great impact on women."

Of course, a sex revolution isn't just about a variety of spiced-up sexual activities.

"A harmonious society must include sex, which is no longer a revolution but a part of our lives," said Pan.

but seriously.. in the past Chinese have really had one partner.. and alot of Children

Honestly i believe that guy polled mostly men, and all the men lied.. as they always do.

and they could be referring to professional sex workers they slept with

it would be impossible to get any average woman in China to tell you the truth about how many people she had sex with..

the guys on the other hand would all lie, spatting out some outrageously high number to sound like more of a man...

my point is in America, a girl will just give a number,.. like 50.

and the man will feel like a loser

or a conservative man can see that she's not the kind of girl he wants

in China, if the girl says 2, she is shunned and has a dificult time finding a man

so in China.. they will never tell you the truth

it could be more than 100, but they will tell you its just 1 bf.. her current one

all men are conservative when it comes to how many guys the mans slept with

few are liberal that would think thats great she's had sex with  100 men

and the men  have an extreme double standard

so, thats why I feel Aids in China is the worst in the world

1. they dont get tested

2. they wont admit to ever have had sex more than once or twice before

3. they wont require a condom because thats an indicator that they have had too much sex in the past

4. they dont think they get Aids

5. They just think they could wish it away if they had it

6. they dont even know if they are dying of Aids

I have seen men with fullblown aids.. we're talking near death Aids

hes drunk all the time.. a little gangster of sorts, playing mahjong all night

molests every girl in sight

has sex with anyone he can posssibly force to have sex with him..

and very aggressively force

and all the while he thinks he doesnt have Aids.

in fact, I believe in his heart he knows

but he pretends its not true..

the doctors may have ecen told him

but he ignores it all together

he feels his Guanxi and "Chineseness" is all powerful, and supercedes any kind of behavior change

he feels he has the right to do as he pleases

maybe because Aids is not his problem..

maybe because its a western lie, or hoax

maybe just because its a western thing... he blames them perhaps

I believe that happens alot in China
