Abstract: Contemporary China is on the leading edge of a sexual revolution, with tremendous regional and generational differences that provide unparalleled natural experiments for analysis of the antecedents and outcomes of sexual behavior. Interviews were conducted between 1999 and 2000 in 18 provinces: Liaoning, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Hebei, Beijing, Tianjin, Henan, Shandong, Hunan, Anhui, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai, Fujian, and Guangdong. This study produces a baseline set of results on sexual behavior and disease patterns, using a nationally representative probability sample. It is one of the first omnibus studies of sexual behavior in a developing country. Topical areas include childhood sexual contact, intimate partner violence, forced sex, sexual harassment, body image concerns, sexual well-being, and sexually transmitted diseases and risk behavior.
