Recently, a provision in the graduate student handbook of Dalian University of Technology has aroused heated discussion: those who have unmarried sex during the study period will be given the above punishment. The cover News reporter found from the official websites of 20 domestic universities that Zhejiang University, Fudan University, and Central China Normal University have the same regulations, and many universities have banned the opposite sex in dormitories.
In response to this matter, on September 14, the cover news reporter contacted Dalian University of Technology for interviews many times. The other party asked to send an interview letter by fax, and a special person responded. However, as of press time, the reporter has not received a response.
Peng Xiaohui, a well-known sexologist, believes that it is a personal right for unmarried adults to have sex, but students should abide by school regulations. Schools formulate such disciplinary regulations to deal with "events that have a negative impact".
The cover news reporter noticed that in 2003, a student in a university in Chongqing was both expelled for pregnancy, and the student was rejected after the lawsuit was rejected.

The university said according to the Ministry of Education to develop regulations
The regulations of many institutions are changing
Cover news reporters searched on the official websites of many colleges and universities and found that similar regulations of these colleges and universities have changed with the changes of the years.
The official websites of the Graduate School, Graduate Work Department, and Academic Affairs Office of Dalian University of Technology respectively announced three versions of student disciplinary regulations. In the first version of 2006, the phrase "illegal cohabitation, moral corruption, and deviant life style" was adopted for "illegal cohabitation, moral corruption, and deviant life style," Depending on the situation, the school will be inspected, ordered to drop out or expelled from school. In the 2016 version, it is simplified to "those who have unmarried sex during the study period will be given the above punishment".
In 2017, a university in Chongqing that once expelled boys and girls from the "pregnancy incident", in the regulations, the prohibited behavior was simplified to "those who have improper sexual behavior and cause bad influence, give a record or more punishment".
The version released by China University of Geosciences (Beijing) in 2017 also follows the previous content: the student dormitory stays with the opposite sex, and the occurrence of improper sexual actors in public places will be given detention for probation. The circumstances are serious, if the influence is bad or the education is not changed, they will be expelled from school. The staff of the school said that the regulations were formulated in accordance with the Ministry of Education's "Regulations on the Management of Students in Ordinary Colleges and Universities.
The cover news reporter consulted the "Regulations" promulgated by the Ministry of Education in 2016, which only summarized the requirements to abide by the Constitution, laws and regulations, and abide by the student code of conduct, and there are no provisions on unmarried sexual behavior.

Sexology experts: Colleges and universities are increasing their tolerance for students
Hope to drive conservative colleges to make changes
The cover news reporter contacted Dalian University of Technology many times. The propaganda department of the school stated that it must fax the interview letter and press card to the designated number, and refused to send the interview materials on WeChat and public mailboxes. According to its requirements, after the reporter sent the interview outline and press card, the other party said that it would arrange for relevant personnel to respond, and the specific time could not be determined.
Peng Xiaohui, a famous sexologist, said that there is no law prohibiting the sexual behavior of unmarried adults, but in practice, the moral and discipline requirements of secondary schools are stricter than other social units, sexual behavior is the power and private matter of adult unmarried students. Without negative consequences, schools generally do not take the initiative to intervene.
"The School has formulated such a regulation in response to related negative events. Students have a relationship, and they can be understood to have intimate behavior in the depths. However, schools can use this as a basis to deal with publicity everywhere, or in dormitories, public places, or have negative effects and bad consequences." Peng Xiaohui said that from the perspective of social influence and school discipline, the formulation of such regulations has its own reasonable considerations, and it is impossible to simply judge right or wrong. He hopes that the people will respect the autonomy of colleges and universities in formulating school regulations, I also hope that the school and the students can put themselves in the shoes of each other's rights and interests, and call on the society to respect the school's right to formulate school rules on its own, as well as the rights and interests of college students to choose independently.
"But it is wrong to stay in the dormitory or have sex in a public place, and it should be punished." Peng Xiaohui believes that Dalian University of Technology has changed the wording and content of the regulations with the change of the years, and a university in Chongqing that expelled students has deleted the relevant regulations, other colleges and universities have only made regulations for the opposite sex in dormitories, and there are more colleges and universities that do not have rules in this regard, indicating that colleges and universities are increasing their tolerance for students, it is hoped that these colleges and universities will lead other relatively conservative institutions to make changes.
