So much for keeping things private. Back in July we launched a project to find out what turns this great city of ours on. In the space of just a few short weeks, readers in their hundreds completed our online sex survey and, though most (understandably) chose to remain anonymous, there was no holding them back when it came to sharing their bedroom secrets. Of those that took part, 58% were male, 89% were straight, 82% think they’re good in bed and 6% say they’ve tried Viagra. So what do their responses say about the sex lives of Singaporeans? We’ll let you be the judge of that.
How many people have you had sex with?
How often do you have sex?
Do you insist on using protection?
What’s the longest you’ve gone without having sex?
What’s your favorite position?
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Although more than half of you are happy with your sex life, almost everyone had ideas for how to make things even hotter. Topping the wishlist among the guys were delayed ejaculation, larger penis size and more stamina; while the ladies wanted longer foreplay, more romance and an open show of affection and love. (Can we suggest that you might need to meet somewhere in the middle?) And more than a few of you would like to go a few steps further: Threesomes, role playing, sex toys and a spot of BDSM (Bondage, Dominance, Sadism and Masochism) were all suggested as suitable ways for spicing things up.
The Numbers Game
Commit these figures to memory. You never know when they might come in handy…
Objects of Desire
“Touch me in the morning,” sang Diana Ross, though it’s unlikely she had this in mind. We asked you to tell us the most bizarre object you’ve masturbated with. Here are the cream—ahem—of the crop.
• Vacuum cleaner
• Soap dispenser
• Teddy Bear
• Sticky tape dispenser
• A pair of chopsticks
• Potted plant
• A spoon
• An electric whisk
Where’s My Pussy Wussy At?
Laughter in the bedroom is no bad thing. But some of your pet names for your partner’s genitalia are just plain ridiculous.
• Pussy Wussy
• Little Pig
• Chili Padi
• Venus Flytrap
• Rajaratnam Rajagopal
How soon will you have sex with someone?
The Three Least Likely
We asked which local and international stars our participants would most like to get up close and personal with. Once we’d weeded out the Brad Pitts and the Megan Foxes, this is what we were left with. Time to get some new fantasies, Singapore.
Top 10 Oddball Fantasies
If what some of you get up to is weird, what you fantasize about is even stranger.
• An older professor
• Controlling my partner with my mind
• Wearing a penis ring
• Doing it on a helicopter
• An orgy at a dinner and dance
• Autogynephilia (male sexual arousal over the idea of being or becoming female)
Every participant that admitted to cheating on their partner was male. That means women are either incredibly well behaved (yeah, right), lied in our survey, or were mostly too busy with their adulterous liaisons to fill in the form. As for why 38% of guys couldn’t keep it in their pants:
Where do you go to look for partners?
While it comes as no surprise to learn that bars and clubs (28%), the office (24%) and dating websites (12%) make popular hunting grounds—with the more confident trying their luck at parks, beaches and gyms—a few answers came out of leftfield. Several participants identified libraries and bookstores as fertile territory, while others sign up for educational programs. And then there are the unholy few who specifically target church services to get their game on. We’d love to be a fly on the wall at confession!
Location, Location, Location
Away from the bedroom, these are the top 10 places our participants have had sex.
• Places of worship
• Swimming pool
• “In an aunt’s kitchen, doing it doggy style to my woman, while facing a basket of laundry.”
