O.o I'm Chinese.. I've known about sex for like..iuno.. about when I was 6? I learned from my brothers who are 5 &6 years older than me who exposed me to everything.. lol
My family never talks about it just because its kinda an uncomfortable subject.. But I wouldn't say its a taboo.

Well, it depends on what part of Asia you come from and how traditional or patriarchal your culture is. I grew up in the U.S. and I am from a very traditional and patriarchal family. Sex is not talked about openly. When I first had my period (I am the oldest girl) my mother talked about how a girl is valued at how good and pure she is. She told me that to set an example for my younger sisters I should follow our customs and respect my honor (virginity = honor in my culture) Anyways, she says that if I practice abstinence and find real love, I have to marry before I do anything like having sex.

But growing up in the U.S. I am expose to sexual contents and friends tell me their love life. . .I got a pretty good idea how it is and what it is. So, I would say it is not taboo subject, it is just how each individual family or culture handle it. hahah, I got my first kiss when I was 22 years old and I was shocked because it was nothing like I imagine it from all my friends talk. hahaha.

But like I say, in a lot of Asian Culture a girls virginity and innocence is prized above all else while it is hypocritical of the guys. . .because their honor isn't between their legs. Yeah, I resent the double standards that most Asian cultures have for male and females.

err i think sex is taboo in almost every society, i mean it's not exactly something you would want to talk to your parents about. i am so glad my mum never taught me about 'the birds and the bees'. ^^;

i don't really know about asian culture but i think it's safe to say that almost everywhere sex is less of a taboo than i would have been in like the 1950's or something.

Well, those people at the age 15 below didn't even know how sex goes in the early 1910s-1940s.Their purpose of hainvg sex is to have more generations to work in farms and so on. It's probably a big thing to them even we're in the 21st century. They think that only married couples would actually do it and not considering the non-married ones.

In Philippines it wasn`t talked about much .
My sister told me , a few weeks after she came home from Japan , that couples make out in every dark spots .
I don`t know really . I gotta say it`s different here in Canada .
Tons of jokes are perverted . >.<

i don't think it's a matter of the asian race but rather it's more of the generation you're living in. the topic of sex is something that varies from household to household, not only in asian families.

Yes it's the ultimate taboo, that's why there are no living Asians.

Taboo ???? sounds like crap too me.
you hear it or seen it on TV, but it may not always be true ( least for most of Asians )
same goes for everything you see and hear ( that is how media works, it only show you what they want you to know )
want to know the real truth???? find it your self, how???? none of my business, lol
