Why is sex such a taboo in the Asian community?
For me I grew up in the US not knowing what it is until I was in high school (age 14ish).
A lot of my Chinese friends are the same.
My aunt grew up in China and even through college she didnt even know how babies were conceived.

So I'm just wondering why is it still a taboo or is it not anymore? What are your views about this? oh and do tell where you are from.
For those of you who are Asian, is it easy for you to talk about sex to anyone.
For those who aren't is it a taboo in your society?

This is all out of curiosity. There is a club in my college, and we had a small discussion on the topic b/c we were all asian and it was really interesting. so i was just wondering what other people thought. Hope there isnt a same thread.

WHAT?!?!?! you teh n00b, the asian countries i've been too are real......uhh......for lack of a better word, freaky. granted it is taboo for women, in a way, however due to modernization this old way of thinking is being phased out. but i cant speak for china really , more so japan.

O.O I'm Asian (Chinese) and I knew what sex was when I was...11? I don't know, It probably depends on what part of the USA you live in (I see you live in New York, so thats pretty strange). I live in New York City so I'm exposed to sex everywhere nowadays. Family-wise, we never talk about sex and whatnot when we're gathered around. I guess its because its not a great topic (in family gatherings). IMO, its not taboo, but we just don't talk about it.

O_O, not knowing how babies were made?! wtf?!

Anyways.. Uh, I don't see it as a taboo. What makes it a taboo, really? I'm asian (half, to be correct) and I find nothing wrong talking about sex O.o.. It's just like normal talk, just more perverted? :P.

Are you an idiot? You're on an anime site. Enough said. There vast majority of anime are harems and ecchi. Japan is closely associated with the word "perverted". Japanese people have kinky porn, hentai, train rape, and tons of perverts. I don't know what told you they think it's taboo. Sex is NOT a taboo, in most asian countries.

i'm from asia (pakistan) and my grandparents generation found it a taboo, my parent's not so much they found out about it in their teens, and here we are taking it all in at 12 lol. i think it USED to be a taboo but because of westernization or whatever thats all come to pass

Lol That video again.

Sex really isn't taboo in Asian society. At least not in Japan. Have you seen some of the anime they put out?

lots of people that i know still find it a taboo. in america, we've been more open to it because of the media, due to friends etc.

prostitution takes a big part in east asian history - oiran+geisha, red district, mistresses, comfort women, etc.

mideast? the harems and stuffs.

for the philippines, prolly not that taboo anymore. prolly 10+yrs ago, they just do it but don't talk about it. yeah, thanks to the predominantly roman catholic populace.
