China Launches Campaign to Break Sex Taboos
February 17, 2009
Its organizers hope a new sex education campaign, "The sunshine project to care for gender health," will help break the taboos that make sexual matters "painful topics" for many Chinese.
"The numbers who get medical attention for sexual problems are extremely small," Xia said. "This delays treatment for some very serious diseases."
The new campaign's "image ambassadors" will be Hong Kong star Yvonne Yung and her husband Will Liu. The outreach will include posters, competitions, and an international sex toy fair in Beijing.
