A survey indicates that 71.4 percent of respondents said they had sex before getting married.

The recent survey was conducted by the Insight China magazine and Tsinghua Media Survey Lab.

According to a survey about premarital sex in 1989 by Li Yinhe, a Chinese sexologist, 15 percent had premarital sex.

The survey also shows that only 1.5 percent of Chinese people get sex knowledge from their parents, which ranks at the bottom of the channels to obtain sex knowledge. Furthermore, only 0.6 percent of men obtain sex knowledge from their parents while 53.5 percent respondents said that they had never obtained sex knowledge.

There are mainly two channels for the Chinese people to acquire sex knowledge, 24.5 percent via internet and 24.2 percent through practices.
