7 in 10 HK undergrads are virgins: Survey

HONG KONG - A survey by University of Hong Kong's students' union has thrown up some interesting conclusions. The most interesting being that there are more virgins on campus than anybody thought.

The survey found that 70 per cent of the students are still virgins, and nearly half have never had a date, Hong Kong Standard reported.

The survey polled 630 students - 316 women and 314 men - last month. The results were published in the union's magazine Undergrad on Tuesday.

The survey showed that 73 per cent said they had no sexual experience. Most of these are women.

Only 17 per cent had sexual relations before being admitted to the university and 10 per cent said they had sex after starting university. Some had sex in university halls while others in other places on campus.

Never dated

A large percentage - 44 per cent - claimed they had never dated.

Asked if they had been to Lan Kwai Fong - famous for its bars and restaurants - 63 per cent said they have not visited the area while 22 per cent said they rarely visited it. Another 15 per cent go to the nightlife hot spot one to three times a month.

Despite the high percentage of students not into sex, 37 per cent said they would like to have condom vending machines on campus, 27 per cent disagreed with the idea, while 36 per cent had no opinion.
