Sex and the Singaporean is a subject that often rears its head, and not always in the most flattering light. An online survey by pharmaceutical company Menarini Group was conducted to measure sexual behaviour and satisfaction in the Asia Pacific region. Aged between 18 and 45, all the respondents were sexually active, with only five per cent not in a relationship. The findings showed that Singaporeans - both men and women - want more action in the bedroom, but sadly aren't getting as much as our regional cousins.
Women of Singapore, rejoice! Three out of four men in Singapore are concerned about satisfying their partners when it comes to sex, according to a survey by pharmaceutical company, Menarini and healthcare research firm, Kantar Health. Premature ejaculation PE is recognized as a medical condition by global health organizations such as World Health Organization WHO and is actually the most common male sexual problem affecting up to 1 in 3 men. Since the male partner is unable to control ejaculation, PE can have a negative impact on the intimacy and sexual satisfaction of couples, which eventually affect their relationship as well. For both men and women, PE can be frustrating, and for men, it can lower self-confidence, which can further take their interest away from sex because of performance anxiety.

Empowered by the Indian ruling, three Singaporean activists have launched separate bids in a renewed push to decriminalise gay sex in the city-state, where a high court is due to begin hearing their cases on Wednesday. The court has set aside six days in November for the legal challenges to be heard but it is unclear when the proceedings will wrap up. The law does not apply to homosexual acts between women. Previous legal challenges to overturn the ban have failed, although recent opinion polls indicated there has been growing support for gay rights. Foreign investors continued to be net sellers of Thai equities worth B7.
When it comes to sex, Singapore has a reputation of being rather meh about it. In general, talking openly about sex remains largely taboo. This hesitation also exists because people are afraid of being judged — not just in Singapore but almost everywhere else in the world, said sex and relationship counsellor Erin Chen, the founder of Spark Fest Asia.
