Aim. This paper aims to report views on school sex education among British-Chinese families.

Methods. Using a qualitative, ethnographic approach and snowball sampling, in-depth interviews were conducted with 20 British-born Chinese teenagers and 20 Chinese parents of teenage children in Scotland.

Results. Teenagers and parents presented a range of views on school sex education, which raises a number of questions about current policy and practice. There were differences in the cultural approach to the issue between the 2 generations - teenagers saw sex education as a means of obtaining information about the risks of having sex and the methods of contraception while parents felt the purpose of sex education should be to promote sexual abstinence.

Conclusions. Exploring the divergent perspectives of teenagers and parents is particularly important for the develoment of sex education policy and nursing practice. Sex education and associated services need to be relevant to both cultural diversity and family values.
