Sex and love compulsory college course (2)

(China Daily)

08:41, September 15, 2011

Some students think there is no reason to make the course compulsory.

Wang Kefei, a sophomore major in business administration at Peking University, who selected a psychological course in her first year, said it was boring and was no help to her.

Her boyfriend, He Fang, also a sophomore at the university, also said it was unnecessary to make it a compulsory course.

"Not all students need this kind of education. After all, we are university students, most of us know about sex and love," he said.

Qing Yun, a student at the University of International Business and Economics, echoed He's opinion and said the university should not enforce this kind of course upon students.

"Some students may not be interested in the psychological education and know about sex and love, so this course won't be helpful to them," she said, adding that optional courses would probably be of more benefit than a compulsory one.

Sang Biao, associate dean of the School of Psychology and Cognitive Science at East China Normal University, said the best time to develop psychological education, especially about sex and love, is in middle or high schools.

"Such a course is necessary, but choosing the right ages for it is more important," he said.

"For most students, the most suitable time to learn sex knowledge is in middle school, because it is in great demand and they have interest to understand the information at that time," he said.
