According to a Shanghai Academy of Educational Sciences survey, 32.4 per cent of high school students have had sex and 46.3 per cent have not received any sex education.
Statistics showed that in the past five years, more than 3,500 young girls have had abortions at a hospital in Shanghai, where the city's first clinic for teenage pregnant girls was set up.
"We Chinese tend to feel uneasy talking about sex because of our cultural background. So it's understandable that young people are not willing to go to the clinic for help," said Huang Hongji, director of Shanghai Youth Research Centre said.
