A Chinese married couple—who were desperately trying to conceive—learned they had been having sex the wrong way for four years.
The young pair, whose identities have been kept anonymous, went to see obstetrician Liu Hongmei after the woman failed to get pregnant despite having sex on a regular basis.
During their appointment, the woman admitted that sex was “usually painful,” which prompted Liu to perform a gynecological examination.
The results were unexpected. Liu discovered that the couple had mistakenly been having anal intercourse rather than vaginal to conceive.
According to report, Liu gave the couple a sex-education handbook and within months, the woman became pregnant. To show their appreciation, the two sent Liu a live hen and 100 eggs as a gift.
“Four years of marriage and neither the husband nor wife knew how to get pregnant. Couples so lacking in general knowledge are very rare,” Liu said. “But it is not uncommon for people to lack or have misconceptions regarding sexual knowledge.”
Although China’s alarming lack of sex education has been a widely discussed issue in recent years, little progress has been made to address the problem. Today, the topic of sex remains largely taboo in schools.
In May, Chinese students at Beijing Normal University held a demonstration demanding that the government provide better sex education for its youth. The protestors held signs that read “Adult videos can’t be our sex education, universities must say yes to sex education” and “We want to enjoy safe sex lives.”
Inflation rate falls to 1.7%
The office for National statistics says the consumer price index is 1.7%-down from 2.1% – in August
Head of inflation at ONS Mike Hardie said: “The inflation rate has fallen noticeably into August, to its lowest since late 2016. This was mainly driven by a decrease in computer game prices, plus clothing prices rising by less than year after the end of the summer sales.
“Annual growth in house prices slowed to its lowest rate since September 2012, with four of the nine English regions now seeing prices falling over the year”.

Several properties belonging to top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), including its president Amaju Pinnick, have been seized in a fresh corruption probe.
The latest investigation and seizures are being carried out by the country’s Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission’s (ICPC).
The ICPC has published a newspaper advertisement about the properties seized – half of which belong to Pinnick.
According to the statement published in the Nigerian papers one of Pinnick’s properties is in London.
It comes amidst wide-ranging claims over how money meant for football development allegedly disappeared.
“We can’t go into further details beyond the fact that many officials of the NFF are under investigation,” ICPC spokesperson, Rasheedat Okoduwa said.
“It’s basically because what they have is in excess of what they have earned.”
The ICPC has also taken control of properties belonging to the NFF second vice-president Shehu Dikko and the general secretary Muhamed Sanusi among others.
