THE Dr Sex hotline for teenagers lost in love has been inundated with calls - from adults. In only five days of operation, the hotline attracted a staggering 9,000 callers. But just over half have been from sexually confused children or teenagers. The other 4,000 calls flooding the 12-line electronic agony aunt have been from adults, aged 20 to 50. The hotline, sponsored by the Department of Health and the Hong Kong Sex Education Association, offers recorded messages on burning sexual questions, ranging from how to choose a condom to fetishism and prostitution. Sex Education Association president Li Man-chiu said if the trend of adult callers continued the association would have to consider a separate hotline for the older generation. 'We will have a review after three months, then we'll think about it,' he said. 'You can see the inadequacy of sex education in our society,' he added. The hotline was launched on July 20, and offers help in English and Cantonese in six areas: psychological problems, myths about sex, sexually transmitted diseases, love and marriage, pregnancy and contraception, and sex and law. The number is 2337 2121.
