Conventionally, the nature of sexuality is socially constituted as ‘private’, ‘sensitive’ and ‘dangerous’ or even a taboo subject in Chinese culture. In the course of Sex Education, I used the ‘reflecting team’ to engage the undergraduate students in an open dialogue on their sexual stories. In a supportive environment, students were comfortably listening to and reflecting on their sexual development. With resonance of experience, the students had aware of their similar experiences embedded in Chinese culture and critically reviewed their knowledge, value and attitude on sexuality. Through the story telling, the students reflected on the qualities of a sex educator and the limitations of sex education in Hong Kong. Such meaningful reflection enhanced the students’ motivation in learning, especially in acquiring knowledge and skills to implement sex education in local school context. Copyright © 2013 HKIED.
