A survey says thirty percent of adults in Taiwan do not reveal anything about their previous sex lives to their partners, or they tend to lie about the facts.

The Formosa Cancer Foundation’s survey of over 600 men and women aged 20 to 35, showed that 30 percent of respondents have not told their partners how many others they have had sex with over the previous three years.

Moreover, 40 percent lied about the actual number of previous partners.

The foundation says the lack of communication increases the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases, including human papilomavirus.
