BLOG – No Sex Please, We’re Hong Kongers 5

….so says an AFP article published this week.

Professor Emil Ng at the HKU Family Institute claims that Hong Kongers have the ‘least amount of sexual knowledge in the world’. Sex experts are apparently urging citizens to have more sex and overcome the challenges of privacy in our cramped city.

Financial pressure, careers, limited space and high rents mean HK has a very low birthrate of 1.04 births per woman. It remains common for residents to live at home well into their 20s and 30s as few can afford to move out earlier. This, of course, gives rise to the local phenomena of hourly hotels, which are much more than the prostitution dens many outsiders believe them to be.
