You need to evaluate your value before you even write out checked= .  I
don't know ASP.net, but in ASP I would do something like ..

<input type="radio" name="WantSex" id="WantSex" value="1" <%If MyField then
response.write " checked=""checked"""%> />


<input type="radio" name="SexWith" id="SexWith" value="jason" <%If MyField =
"jason" then response.write " checked=""checked"""%> />
