After 7 years of marriage, a young Chinese couple just could not get pregnant. They were worried. Their parents were worried. So they decided to go in for a checkup. The result was shocking.
The woman's hymen was still intact. She was still a virgin. The man and the woman had both never had sexual education training and they didn't even know how to have sex properly. Apparently they thought that “hugging” each other to sleep was enough to conceive a child. Both were 30 years old and married since they were 23.
I wouldn't have believed this story if it wasn't on Yahoo (which is still not that great of a source). But if it is true then it is very shocking because of how crazy their circumstance must have been. It means they were both probably living under a rock since they could have learned about sex in so many different ways — movies, adult videos, the news, or even a simple Google search. But it also illustrates how poor the sex education system is in China. My parents personally never taught me about the “birds and the bees,” but luckily I learned about it from seeing porn that my friends showed me. In China (with censorship laws and a much more taboo view on sex) it's conceivable that a couple wouldn't know how to have sex.
The doctor's prescription? Hardcore movies. That ought to be fun.
