ABSTRACT
The article presents information on development of sex education in China. Educated people in China have been promoting the concept of sex education since the May Fourth Movement of 1919. It is possible to divide the history of the research and practice of sex education in China after the establishment of the People's Republic into four stages: the initial stage which ranges from October 1949 to 1978; the upsurge in sex education during the period of 1979 to 1983; the expansion of sex education during the period of 1984 to 1987; the popularization of sex education from 1988 to the present. The main theme of this stage was the promotion of the concept of sex education. In the early 1950's, a number of books on the subject of sex were published, including "Sexual Psychology." Chinese Prime Minister Zhou Enlai had always stressed the importance of sex education. In 1954, in an address to graduating students at Beijing University, he spoke of the need to eliminate the mystery that surrounded sex, and to promote sex education for students.
