Social taboos, conservative morality, legal restraints and misleading information plague the field of sex education in China today. There’s a massive demand for reliable, evidence– and rights-based and sex-friendly information in China.
Almost half of Chinese people between ages 18 and 30 are not given sex education at school, according to research carried out by Love Matters China and Beijing Forestry University in 2014. Another study, conducted by Love Matters China via online survey in 2017, shows that 95% of Chinese young people recognise the importance of sex education in school but 65% of them are not satisfied with the current situation.
Love Matters China was established to serve these people – and to address the 78% of young people who recognise the internet as their primary source of SRHR information.
