Sexual Attitudes and Values in Taiwan: Differences amang Gender, Cohort, and Three Cluster Groups.
This study attempts to investigate Taiwanese attitudes towards a range of sexual parties in which it is suspected that there is much debate and reinterpretation. This includes prostitution, the sex industry, cohabitation, the one night stand, and extramarital affairs. It uses this diverse range of topics to discuss contemporary attitudes and sexual beliefs. Data were drawn from the Taiwan Social Change Survey in 2002, a national face-to-face survey. A total of representative 1,791 respondents with age range of 19 to 71 years old were included in the analysis. 864 were males and 927 were females. Cluster analysis, logistic regression and chi-square were performed in this study. Attitudes of Taiwan citizens prefers loyal to partners. Pluralism regarding premarital cohabitation was more popular amongst those born in 1970s and 1980s. Results on attitudes towards sex from the cluster analysis can be divided into three groups: convention, biological and neutral. Biological belief group favors in the sex trade and substantially permits one night stands and extramarital sex. The neutral group was firmly opposed to one night stands and extramarital sex, but allowed singles to trade sex through the sex industry. Convention group is mostly from females and biological group consists of mostly men, reflecting sexual value conflict between men and women. Marital status and education were not significantly associated with groups. The biggest gaps between three groups fall into the attitudes towards sexual naturalism, sexual double standards, and a sex commercialization which is pervasive in Taiwan.
