The Historical Interplay between Sex Revolution, Sex Rights Movement, and the Development of Sexology in Taiwan

Josephine Chuen-Juei HO, Ph.D.

(Professor, Center for the Study of Sexuality, National Central University, Taiwan)

Abstract: The emergence of sexology in various national contexts serves as an important index of the modernization of sexuality, and nearly always accompanies rapid social change as well as significant transformations in intimate relationships.  In other words, it is when sexual practices and sexual discourses undergo dramatic transformation that studies in sexology finds its impetus for development


as well as its social relevance.  The authority and legitimacy that come with this development, then, have the potential to promote the overall sexual culture toward liberalization or rigidification. The present essay traces the historical interplay between Taiwan’s sexologists and the sex revolution since the 1980s as well as the emergence of local sex rights movement since the 1990s.

The Relevance between Extramarital Sexual Behaviors in Chinese Minority Ethnic Groups and Their Social Culture

Ming’an QU

(Professor, Ethnology & Anthropology Institute, Yunnan University, China)

In traditional Chinese minority ethnic society, while most of the ethnic groups prohibit the extramarital sexual behaviors and give penalty to people who have such behaviors, quite a few of ethnic minority groups adopts an attitude of tolerance towards the extramarital sexual behavior in various forms. Quite a lot of scholars of the past who studied marriage and family took the perspective of nineteenth-century evolutionism and held with preconceived idea that the extramarital sexual behavior was the survival of the group marriage and pairing marriage. After analyzing the interaction between the extramarital sexual behavior and marriage system, economic system and social stratification, the author of the paper finds out that those import social institutions are not directly correlated with the prohibition or tolerance of extramarital sexual behavior. The author suggests that the different meanings given to marriage by different societies lead to different attitudes towards extramarital sexual behavior.

Key Words: Chinese Minority People; Extramarital Sexual Behaviors; Cross-Cultural Comparison

From “Sexual Rights” to “Sexual Human Rights”: the Establishment of the Concept of Sexual Human

Rights and Its Significance

Hejun ZHAO, Ph.D.

(Associate Professor, Law Department, China Women’s University, China)

In human rights discourse, as rights are equal to human rights, sexual rights are equal to sexual human rights too. But in fact, as not all rights are human rights, not all sexual rights are sexual human rights. Sexual Rights encompass sexual rights as human rights and sexual rights as privilege, and there exists conflict between these two kinds of sexual rights. Thus, the concept of sexual rights leads to misunderstanding and confusion in practice. It is therefore necessary to establish the concept of sexual human rights for sexual rights as human rights in order to eliminate the misunderstanding and confusion. At the same time, it is of significance to establish the concept of sexual human rights. It will be helpful to clear the historal process of sexual rights from privilege to human rights, to preserve sexual dignity, and to promote the reform of sex laws.

Key words: sexual rights; sexual human rights; sexual privilege; human rights; rights


Brief History of Sex Education in China in

the Early 20th Century

Xue-feng WANG, Ph.D.

(Associate Professor, the Central Institute for Correctional Police, China)

The advent of sex education in the early 20th century is of great importance in culture and education in China.The sex education in the early 20th century occurred at a time when China was increasingly influenced by the West, and the new type of intellectuals played a crucial role in sex education. 

Having been introduced and advocated in the first decade of the 20th century, sex education be came prosperous in the 1920s and 1930s, when a large amount of pertinent literature was published. The curricula standards issued by the educational administration included sex education in it, and such courses as physiology and health education also had sex education as a part of the content. Knowledge about sex became popular in schools.

Sex education that appeared in the 1920s is intrinsically related to the theme of the times. Independence, democracy, prosperity and the corresponding ideas of nationalism, individualism and scientism are all reflected in sex education. The initiation of discourses about sex represents the pursuit of the intellectuals for the prosperity of the nation and individual liberty.

Sexual Capital:A Comparative Study of Women’s Sexuality in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Melbourne

Yuxin PEI, Ph.D.

(Department of Sociology and Social Work, Sun Yat-sen University, China)

This paper is a comparative study on how young women experience sex and how they come to understand their own sexuality and desires in contemporary Shanghai, Hong Kong and Melbourne. From the data of in-depth interview of one hundred women in the three cities, this study uses “sexual capital” as the entries to understand young women’s sexuality. It refers to what these women have gained from their new sexual practices and sexual relationships. They are not only for emotional needs or love commitments, but they expect social connections, cultural exposure or economic rewards to survive in big cities. “Sexual capital” is women’s capability to revise, re-articulate and reconstruct their sexuality and empower themselves with such a capability. Women encountered different social, cultural and economical situations in the different cities, their engagement in new sexual practices and sexual relationships appeared different models: For women in Shanghai, a fast developing city, women’s aspiration for self development was very strong and their desires for sexual capitals could be reflected in most cases of their sexual choices; For women in Hong Kong, “sexual pleasure” was one of the key points in women’s sexual expressions, but their pursuit of “sexual pleasure” were closely connected with their pursuits of  committed long term relationships; For women in Melbourne, “intimate negotiation” is found to be more important in women’s sexual representations.

Key word: women, sexuality, comparative study, sexual capital

Research on SexualityBasic Propositions of Sociological

Suimin PANG

(Professor, Institute for Research on Sexuality and Gender, Renmin University of China)

    At the author’s viewpoints, there are five basic propositions that would support sociological research on sexuality to be a kind of precise study. They are: social factors pay more much influence than physiological factors upon men’s and women’s strong degree of sexual desire, frequency of sexual life, abundance of sexual skill, frequency of orgasm and number of sexual problems. Taking theses five propositions as hypotheses, using statistic method of multiple linear regression, the author carry on an analysis of the data of the population-based survey of Chinese people’s sexuality (1999-2000). As the result, besides women’s sexual problem, all of the five hypotheses are proved. Thus, a new subject -- sociology of sexuality -- is built up basically.

SM, SM-Porn and Sexual Autonomy

Yin-Bin NING, Ph.D.

(Professor of Institute of Philosophy, National Central University, Taiwan)

In SM relationship or SM porn, the masochist seems to become voluntarily a slave.  However, many liberal thinkers, except libertarians such as Nozick, maintain that a person cannot voluntarily be a slave of others.  Thus, will SM or SM porn violates one’s (sexual) autonomy?  This article first call into attention the fact that SM can be performed by single individual alone and hence is conceptually different from sexual enslavement (violence or abuse) that requires at least two people, a victimizer and a victim. 

SM then analyzed separately as a sexual technique, a sexual fantasy, a sexual interaction and a sexual preference is shown to be not violating anyone’s sexual autonomy.  Furthermore, a distinction is made between mutuality and reciprocity to show SM as both an autonomous and reciprocal activity.  Finally, this article argues that in the aspect of sexual autonomy, SM-porn though a less familiar genre to the mainstream is not essentially different from any other genre of pornography, which should be enjoyed the freedom of speech.

and Their Female Customers

Gang FANG, Ph.D.

(School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Beijing Forestry University, China)

 This paper, which based on the result of fieldwork, used the research method of social gender and the theory of masculinities, analyses the power relation between male sex workers and their female customers through their sex relations, conflicts and feelings.  We consider that the power relation between male sex workers and their female customers is not a simple dominant relation, but a variational constructional process. It is because there are many factors participate in the construction of power of this special relation. At the same time, the power relation between the masculinities and the femininity is in different context because they have diversiform practice. So, this paper gives us a new analysis to the study of social gender.

Ming’an QU

(Professor, Ph.D. Advisor Nationality Research Institute, Yunnan University, China)

Based on an overview on other researcher’s findings the article makes a new explanation on the sexual relation reflected in myths of brother and sister marriage among ethnic minorities in China. The article classifies myths of brother and sister marriage into two types: the non-flood myth and the flood myth. On one hand the legends of brother and sister marriage in the non-flood myths reflect the intermarriage between different groups in human society and the cross-cousin marriage and parallel-cousin marriage existing in some ethnic groups. On the other hand the legends of brother and sister marriage in the flood myths mainly reflect that the early human understood their sexual relations in a vague and symbolic way and there existed a cultural tendency of anti-incest in early human society.

Review in Promoting Sexuality Education of Malaysian

Chinese Independent High Schools

Qiming WU

(Counseling Education Executive of United Chinese School Committees’ Association Malaysia)

Islam is not only a national religion, but also the most influential religion in Malaysia. The Islam followers, Muslim represents 70% of Malaysian population. With this background, it would be a great limitation and challenge to integrate sexuality education into Malaysian education system. Hence, sexuality education is still not implemented although many politicians have proposed the concepts of sexual education since 1980s.

Some western countries had successfully integrated sexuality education into their education system, mostly founded with NGO and became important. The leader of Chinese Education NGO in Malaysia, United Chinese School Committees Association of Malaysia (UCSCAM) started to promote sexuality education as it was proposed by government in 1980s. Publishing and sociality seminar were the core promoting works before 2004. But it is working more systematically and strategically now.

This article intends to review the promoting works of sexuality education in Chinese Independent High Schools. Furthermore, five concepts and strategies of the promoting works will be presented. These consist of organizing in-service training, social seminar, promoting relevant course, publishing, creating healthy activities for students and nurturing seed students. It also reveals some problems and challenges in this process.

Measuring Chinese Unmarried Young Adults’

Premarital Sexual Permissiveness

Shanshan HE


(Ph.D. Candidate, Dept. of Social Work and Social Administration,

The University of Hong Kong)


Abstract: Most surveys about Chinese premarital sexual permissiveness adopted general and simple questions, so it is hard to draw more detailed and accurate conclusions from the data. Based on the work of Reiss (1964) and Sprecher, S et al. (1988), the author has developed a revised scale to measure Chinese premarital sexual permissiveness with special attention to cultural factors. This scale focuses on 3 types of conditions in which premarital sexual intercourse occurs, such as targets, time period and relationship status. When being invited to visit the author’s website, the 1,050 Chinese unmarried young adults answered the questionnaires online and evaluated their premarital sexual permissiveness under each proposed condition. Results showed that respondents’ permissiveness increased when the targets were others (friends, classmates, etc.), the age of targets increased and the status of relationship was more mature. The respondents would be more cautious to accept their own premarital sexual behaviors. Males were more permissive than females in having premarital sexual intercourse under all conditions the scale outlined. This paper discussed the author’s reflection of the research results and its implication for further sexual studies and sexual education in contemporary China.

Key words: Chinese unmarried young adults, premarital sexual permissiveness, online survey


The Meta-analysis of Sex

Man-Lun NG, M.D.

(Professor, The University of Hong Kong)

Much of our contemporary psychosocial theory including the sexological is derived from the synthesis and analysis of clinical/non–clinical observations or data.  An example par excellence is the psychoanalytic theory and its derivatives which can be conceptualized basically as a traditional meta-analysis of sex and its correlates. Many other psychosocial theories have since flourished; breaking new grounds, but have methodologically stayed largely within the traditional meta-analytic framework.   

With advances in scientific thinking and the growing application of statistical and mathematical methods in research, modern meta-analysis has for more than a decade taken on a radically new shape, rigorously identifying the loopholes of traditional meta-analysis and overcoming them. It has now become one of the important yardsticks for assessing theories and treatments in evidence-based medicine with fruitful heuristic outcomes. Yet little of it has been applied in sexology.  

With examples of some the few most updated sexological meta-analyses that have been performed, including those by my colleagues and me, it can be seen how modern sexological meta-analysis can make promising contributions to psychosocial psychiatry but has on the other hand particular serious problems awaiting solutions.  

Key words:  Sex, sexology, meta-analysis


Review and expectation for Chinese Sexuality Research in Today

Mingyu DENG, M.D., Ph,D.

(Prof. Institute for Oriental-Western Human Sexuality, USA)


    In long time, Chinese sexuality field was unknown in world. In today of 21st century of sex culture opening, Chinese sexuality researchful field have not been whole understand by people.

I, a professional did sexuality research and sexual education to continue 24 years since Oct 1984. I have experienced Chinese sexuality opening and development in our age.

This paper according to develop in sexology on Chinese-mainland so main key, and combine sexology research in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Chinese community in USA. This Chinese sexology age have been partition at five phases: germinating phase (1949 – 1977), opening phase (1978– 1985), pioneer phase (1986-1994), development phase (1994-2004), rising phase (2005- 2008).

1, Germinating phase (1949 – 1977)

In this phase, China-mainland was two periods. First period was from 1949 to 1965. In 17 years, Prof. YE Gongshao and her colleagues at Peking Medical College did investigate and research for sexual education in adolescence, and did counseling to sexual health in newspapers and magazines. Sexual information had been attended in physical health textbook in middle school. At one time, some fine movies to describe love had been produced. Second period was from 1966 to 1977.

In 10 years, ‘Culture Revolution’ killed all matters about sex. In this phase, sexology research was also vacant in Hong Kong, Taiwan and other overseas Chinese community.

2, Opening phase (1978 – 1985)

In 1978, sex’s breakthrough was first love movie. Whereafter, some professionals of insight did sexology research in medicine, psychology and sociology. They were LANG jinghe, Hu Tingyi, RUAN Fangfu, WANG Xiaodao, PANG Suimin, LIU Dalin, DENG Mingyu, WANG Youping, et al. In Hong Kong, sexology and sexual education had done in 1980. Dr. Man-lun NG and his fellow sex educators founded Hong Kong Sex Education Association. In Taiwan, sexology and sexual education had done at some professionals in 1977. They were Dr. Edwin H YEN, Dr. Jung Kwang WEN, et al.

3, Pioneer phase (1986-1994)

In 1986, the Preparation Committee of the China Sexology Association had been founded. WANG Xiaodao was director, DENG Mingyu was secretary general. This is important matter in Chinese sexology history. After eight years, China Sexology Association was officially established. In Hong Kong, Asian Federation for Sexology was officially established in 1992. Dr. Min-lun NG was president. In Taiwan, Taiwan Association for Sexual Education was officially established in 1991. Prof. Ci-Rao Lee was president, and Dr. Edwin H YEN was vice president. In USA, Dr. Fangfu RUAN obtained Ph.D. in Human Sexuality in San Francisco in 1991. He made ‘Sexual Sociology’ in World Journal since 1986.

4, Development phase (1994-2005)

In October 1994, China Sexology Association was officially established in Beijing. Prof. WANG Guangchao was president; Prof. WANG Xiaodao was secretary general. In sexuality field, many professionals in China-mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and America-Chinese made academic exchange. Researchful achievement in Chinese sexuality had been shown time after time in international sexuality filed.

How A Woman May be Affected When Her

Partner Has Erectile Difficulties


Dr. Margaret Redelman

(Professor, Sydney Centre for Sexual & Relationship Therapy)


Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common male sexual condition which has an initial spike in young age with high sex drive, anxiety and inexperience, and then increasing in prevalence with age, after about 40years. ED is also associated with common diseases of aging such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and psychological states such as mood disorders, anger and depression. Research has repeatedly highlighted the profound effect that ED has on a man’s sense of self, manhood/masculinity and quality of life. This translates into men with ED experiencing worse social functioning, role limitations due to emotional problems, poorer emotional wellbeing, less sexual satisfaction, lower emotional satisfaction and lower general life happiness. At the same time most men and women see ED as a normal consequence of aging and studies show that only about 9% of men with ED are actually taking a drug to treat their ED.

Sexuality regularly rates as an important aspect of relationships for both men and women. Most men with ED will have an intimate/sexual relationship with a woman while having the condition. What effect does the above male constellation of consequences have on the sexual and emotional wellbeing of women? The most common male responses are either withdrawal from affectional behaviour to protect from engaging in sexual behaviour or blaming the woman, so she withdraws.

Women who have not enjoyed a sexual relationship with their partner are usually relieved that they can stop having sex and will sabotage attempts at re-instating erections. However, when the woman has enjoyed making love, ED can impact on her in several ways. In particular, the impact can be on: her sexuality with orgasmic dysfunction, loss of libido and dyspareunia: her self-esteem and her perception of herself as an attractive sexually competent woman; loss of affectional intimacy both emotional and physical; loss of relationship happiness, harmony, cohesiveness and satisfaction; and lack of sexual organ exercise and the benefits of sexual activity. Usually there are strong feelings of guilt, shame, hurt, rejection and anger.

Studies show that loss of sexual activity in good older relationships is mostly determined by the male ability to function. However, while for the man with ED the most important outcome of treatment may be a firm erection and ability to penetrate, the woman may have different objectives. She may want a re-establishing of a satisfying sensual and sexual emotional and physical interaction.

In treatment both partners need to be seen, understood and mutual goals established. ED has very significant effects for the partner and the dynamic interplay between the ED patient and their partner must be taken into account in any management process for real sustainable success.

Is there A Place for Sexuality After A

Life Limiting Medical Diagnosis?

Dr Margaret Redelman

(Professor, Sydney Centre for Sexual & Relationship Therapy)

It is very traumatic to be given a life limiting diagnosis. It is traumatic for the patient, the health care provider/s and the patient’s partner and family. Each of these groups will have their own beliefs about the place of sexuality at this time. These beliefs will be based on their own sexual past, education, experiences, culture etc and ultimately comfort with sexuality and dealing with another’s sexuality.

Illness, dying and sexuality are taboos in almost every society. As a result, this particular period in individual’s lives, when a life limiting diagnosis is given, is very vulnerable to sexual difficulties. However, there are studies showing that many individuals value maintaining their sexuality during this difficult time and want assistance in making the best of their sexual potential.

The continual changes that occur with the progression of disease and its management make it difficult for the individual and their partner to manage without professional assistance. And as for many people sexuality defines their meaningful intimate relationship, important benefits may be lost when sexuality is lost or changed.

Health professionals regularly acknowledge the importance of sexuality for individuals despite the diagnosis, but have difficulties acting on their beliefs when it comes to raising the subject, positive validation of sexuality and constructive therapeutic assistance.

Sexuality within the individual’s ability and desire for it must be included in the holistic care of individuals even after a life limiting diagnosis is given.

Key words: sexuality, illness, dying, palliative care
