A FEW years ago it looked like the curse that would never lift. In China, north India and other parts of Asia, ever more girls were being destroyed by their parents. Many were detected in utero by ultrasound scans and aborted; others died young as a result of neglect; some were murdered. In this newspaper put a pair of empty pink shoes on the cover and called it gendercide. In retrospect, we were too pessimistic. Today more girls are quietly being allowed to survive.
HONG KONG AFP - For Hong Kong's "part-time girlfriends", social media provides an easy way to connect with clients looking for sex, but campaigners warn that online convenience is tempting girls as young as 13 to put themselves at risk. The label "part-time girlfriend" is a euphemism often used by young women in the city who may be studying or have jobs, but who also offer sex on the side. By using variations of the hashtag ptgf as shorthand, they connect with men on networks such as Instagram and then switch to direct messaging to offer services and arrange to meet. Instagram says it has made ptgf and hkptgf unsearchable, but a host of new alternatives that add Chinese characters or initials to the original tag circumvent the block.
Torrey Pines Rd. We examined the prevalence of three domains of sexual behaviors among young Asian-American women: sexual experiences, safer sex practices, and potential HIV risk behaviors.

The application of the Theory of Gender and Power should be employed with prudence when designing HIV interventions for this population.
The survey conducted by Bayer Healthcare earlier this year involved adults from each country. Some 40 per cent of survey respondents said they or their partner preferred not using any, while another one in five thought they were not at risk of getting pregnant. These include withdrawal before ejaculation, showering after sex, staying upside down for two hours, and rinsing the genital area with Coca-Cola. The use of Coca-Cola as a contraceptive method has been around for decades, and a study in the s showed that the drink did have some spermicidal qualities.
