Singaporeans want to have more sex and, according to a survey conducted by the Singapore unit of the Menarin Group, close to 80 per cent of women from the city-state aged 18 to 45 would like to engage in more coitus, compared to the 69 per cent of their counterparts in Asia-Pacific. 

In comparison to women, men in Singapore report that they have sex about six times a month on the average, falling behind the overall Asia-Pacific average of eight times for their gender. Both the Singapore-only and Asia-Pacific surveys reported that 84 per cent of male respondents wanted to have more sex.

Dr. Martha Lee, a clinical sexologist, said that women’s tiredness and the demands of motherhood could be a big reason as to why their sex lives are put on hold.

“Women here are also primary caregivers of their children, so by the time they have taken care of both their work and their kids, they are often too tried to have sex,” Lee said.

This raises the question: Can’t men rise to the occasion and take care of business?

Unfortunately, the survey also revealed that six in 10 men are exceedingly worried about not being able to persuade their lovers to have intercourse.

Almost half the local men reviewed worry that they were unable to give their partners an orgasm, and three in ten worry about premature ejaculation. To add salt to these statistical wounds, six in 10 men who prematurely ejaculate have not yet discussed it with their partners.

Back in 2000, a survey conducted by National Youth Council estimated that 48 per cent of Singaporean youth perceive sex before marriage as unacceptable even when two people love one another.

The many roadblocks, including the perception on sex, a busy lifestyle and the fears of even doing it, add a lot of weight against getting it on in the bedroom.
