ust in time for Chinese Valentine’s Day, a new survey has been released which finds that over half of China’s young people aren’t getting any.
The survey was carried out by TryFun, a Chinese adult toy maker owned by internet giant NetEase. The company asked 4,000 people who were born in the 1980s or 1990s and had purchased one of their products online to answer questions about their sex lives.
54 percent of respondents said that they were having sex at least once a week, however, when broken down by gender, that percentage was 57 percent for men and just 40 percent for women, indicating that this sample might not be entirely trustworthy, or simply skews heavily towards sexually-active gay men.
Still, while hardly scientific, the survey does have some interesting results, including the lack of sex that Chinese young people are apparently having with more than half of those under the age of 26 reporting no activity in the bedroom. Meanwhile, more than 30 percent of those between 31 and 35 said that they were getting busy at least twice a week.
Additionally, it appears that those having the most sex in China do not live in first-tier cities like Shanghai, but in second or third-tier cities. While 45 percent of respondents in Shanghai said that they had bumped uglies at least once a week, that percentage goes all the way up to 67 percent for those in Sichuan and Chongqing.
Finally, it won’t come as much of a surprise that the survey found that the better-off and less busy respondents were, the more likely they were to use their spare time having sex. 44 percent of those in households making more than 50,000 yuan a month said that they had sex at least twice a week, while just 38 percent of those making only 2,000 yuan or below monthly said that they were having regular sex.
By profession, the most sexually active are corporate executives, followed by service industry employees, and, of course, government officials.
So, according to this survey, those having the most sex in China are older, well-off male execs and cadres in Chongqing. Sounds about right to us.
