Although sex education in Taiwan has been conducted for many years and there has been increased attention to gender equality and the prevention of gender-based violence, traditional gender norms still deeply influence society. As a result, students face challenges in navigating sexual communication and making informed decisions about their sexuality. This research is carried out to empirically analyze the issue of authoritative oppression and gender equality through a textual analysis of the renowned book “Fang Si-Qi’s First Love Paradise”. The findings of this analysis shed light on various contemporary sex education issues in Taiwan, particularly those related to gender equality. These issues are deconstructed into key points for reforming sex and gender education. We propose five key points for discussion and suggest the adoption of a sex-positive framework as a guiding principle for curriculum design.
