erm... not really any more i guess... Asia is becoming more liberal, but i guess that's just east asia... like Japan, China, HK, Thailand even Singapore where I live... i think its still rather touchy in the middle east and other countries where religion is a large part of people's lives- e.g. Malaysia, India, Indonesia
The former group of countries have sex education anyway... at about middle school or junior high school level... but it doesn't cover everything...

im asian (from Nepal). i knew about sex when i was 10. In Nepal sex is a taboo topic but the younger generation are different. It happens but people just dont talk about it in public.My parents have always been open minded about sex. In school we had sex ed as well so everyone knew about sex by the time they hit 13 at my school atleast.I guess me and my friends were quite open about it, i think thats cuz we all had liberal parents.

I moved to the UK in 2003 cuz of my mum's MRCPCH exams (additional paediatritian qualification). The only thing that was different here was the fact that to a certain extent girls werent embarrassed talking about sex(still havent met a girl who can talk about sex in the same perverted way that guys do though).

If im with my family then talking about sex is outa the question especially elders. But anything goes if its just my male cousins. My parents dont mind me talking about sex in a non-perverted way.When it comes down to talking about me having sex then my dad says its my choice since im old enough now while my mum tells me to hold out for as long as possible (she hopes i would remain a virgin until marriage).

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).


^ same here, we never talk about these things and never will, it's like a hidden golden rule, personally i'm glad for it especially not over dinner lol xD

Usually the older ones find it a taboo and would smite you if you were to talk about it openly


^ Yep my grandparents are like that, even if they see a kissing scene on tv they will quickly switch the channel lol, it's annoying when i'm watching tv but i can't blame as older generations of they're family were brought up not to talk about it.

hmmm..... well, Sex is a big deal to some people, and not to others. in fact, it is a BIG deal to a lot of Christians that I have spoken to and such, who will be shamed in the eyes of god if they are sexually active before they are married.... it just depends on your culture really... XD
