Apparently 30% of Chinese married couples have given up on sex due to stress.

“With constant pressure from families and careers, a staggering 30 percent of middle-aged couples give up on sex, according to a new survey.

The survey, the first of its kind to measure intimacy between middle-aged couples in China, was conducted by American pharmaceutical manufacturer Eli Lilly Company and the Beijing-based China Population Communication Center.

Interviewing 32,906 people in 10 big cities including Beijing and Guangzhou, the poll found that middle-aged couples on the Chinese mainland seldom communicate in their daily life, and often rate their sex lives poorly.”

That about sums up the article. There are, of course, more details. It does not, however, paint a particularly pretty picture of married life in China.
