(1) Since mid-80’s Hong Kong has been in a turbulent environment, politically in the aspect of the 1997 issue, and then going through the chaotic Tung’s era; economically in the aspect of the emmigration issue, and then going through the drastic economic downturn of the depressing Tung’s reign. The man of the family has to shoulder, and to bear with all these challenges. Only a handful of families turn out to be the winners. In other words, the majority of the families have been losers. Feeling dejected reduces sex performance of the male.
(2) In Hong Kong, the living space is usually limited. Many families have to live with the parents next door, or one or more child in the same room. The environment discourage sex act. It is not strangle to have couples going to “hour" motels to have a good time. However, taking the time, the journey and some sort of strange feeling of guilt in such endeavour also reduce the sex performance.
(3) Routine work schedule is usually heavy. There is no more energy.
(4) The Family Planning Association has noticed this, thus it has begun encouraging Hong Kong people to have 3 children instead of 2 children as adversed before the 80s.
“Relationship" between husbands and wives is the key point for having “joy" together. Given the social norm and value in Hong Kong, we can see more relationship breaking than relationship building.

“Relationship" needs to be cultivated in a regulat basis. I agree that many wives in Hong Kong do not respect their husbands, hurting the dignity of the husbands, breaking the relationships.

The survery is by no mean representative. Only 200 respondent in HK? You can probably spend 2 hour in Central or TST and get all the required response. How about the NT area? There was a TV special which interviewed Professor Chung of HKU and said the same size should be at least 1000 to be representative. The Pifzer survey on the whole could draw conclusion on the world average but not enough for HK alone.
BTW, I spent some time searching the web and couldn’t find the origin of the survey result. Much appreciated if someone post the link here.
