Q: Are STD's a rampant problem in China?

Seeing as the news here is "harmonized", how widespread is it?
Are the locals even taught about these things?

I assume it's everywhere because people don't know much about it, therefore they don't know how to prevent it. Whoever is sleeping around in any country can't be careful enough, in my opinion.

I was once told by my students that only foriengers have disease.  If you stay away from foreingers you are "safe".  I often wonder, WHERE do they get this (mis)information!?

Back in my working girl days...I had a few 'femmes de noir' wrap it up before they smoked it, let alone poked it.

You can't really trust the official statistics provided by the Ministry of health as any other "scandal", STD, AIDS, etc are strictly kept under control.
Back in 2000, Wenlou was a famous village in China where AIDS was ramping throughout the village and the village isolated by the military.
Just be careful with yourself. Condoms can protect you but they are not 100% safe.
Western people often don't give a damn about it, because they believe they will be safe.
Chinese people often don't give a damn about it, because they are often not really informed about these kind of diseases (either at school or by their government).

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
