Female panda Jia Jia not pregnant.

kai-kai-jia-jia-gay

Highly conservative Singaporeans who followed the news closely about two panda bears having sex in the Singapore Zoo in April 2015 were aghast to learn that the male panda Kai Kai had failed to fully consummate the union by not finishing inside of the female panda, Jia Jia.

This resulted in speculation that he could be gay and the zoo doctors had to carry out an operation to artificially finish inside the female panda instead.

Now it has been revealed that the female panda is not pregnant after all these months.

One conservative religious Singaporean, Xing Ye Shu, said: “I am disturbed by the fact that we allow such things to happen in Singapore. A failure to finish inside a female is a sure sign of homosexuality because a reluctance to procreate is an immediate failure of heterosexuality.”

“I demand that the Singapore Zoo investigate if there are any more homosexual animals in their midst and flush them out.”

Another conservative religious Singaporean, Tong Xing Lian, said the pandas’ endangered species status is brought about by their own doing: “Homosexuality must have been rampant in the panda species. That’s why their reproductive rate is so low and their eventual decline is their own fault.”

“If they stopped being so gay they would reproduce more.”

At press time, conservative religious Singaporeans who have started their own investigations said that all species of animals are failing to show the proper traditional family unit of one father, one mother and two children, therefore, the Singapore Zoo is complicit in promoting immoral behaviour and activities, besides homosexuality, and is a bad example for families here.

Fast food joint looking to titillate youths with in-your-face innuendo.

Young Singaporeans from all walks of life who are easily influenced by the things they see and hear about online and offline have come forward to admit they are aroused by a Carl’s Jr advertisement.

This after the amount of attention paid to this ad increased due to the recent verdict given by the judge at the Amos Yee trial, where she ruled that youths in Singapore are easily titillated by the things they read and hear about and run the risk of losing their morals.

One youth, Zhen Bian Tai, who agreed with the judge that teenagers are easily aroused and are uncontrollable animals driven by instinct and a pursuit of pleasure, said: “When I see this Carl’s Jr advertisement with the words ‘BIG BREASTS’, I feel like committing molest and incest, after which, I would buy this burger to eat to satisfy my other deep-seated desires.”

Lawyers interviewed said the ad could potentially violate moral values in Singapore society, as the words “BIG BREASTS” are accompanied by fleshy, firm lumps of meat, albeit avian ones, which can still be construed as meat that can induce pleasure.

One lawyer, Shang Fa Ting, said: “There is no doubt youths will act on their baser desires when they see this ad. Better call police.”

“I should turn myself in too, just in case I go on a sexual rampage.”

What they say? His willy is small?

Yale-NUS College recently announced that it will be allowing male and female students to share suites (“Male, female students in Yale-NUS can soon share suites”; April 22).

In the report, a parent, Mrs Grace Yeo, was quoted saying: “These are not teenagers but young adults. I trust my son to make responsible choices.”

I wonder if this is representative of Singapore parents today.

Based on the 2004 Global Sex Survey by Durex, the average age that Singaporean youth first have sex is 18.9 years. The survey also found that Singapore youth have an average of 5.8 sexual partners.

The average age that our youth first have sex is dangerously close to the age when students would enter Yale-NUS.

So we have to ask ourselves a fundamental question: Is it an issue to have premarital sex?

Or perhaps we think that even if our children have premarital sex, they can sort it out after marriage.

A recent report (“Recent marriages not standing the test of time”; April 7) showed that recent marriages are failing more often than in the past, and I would say that today’s generation lacks faithfulness.

How does abstaining from premarital sex help? Because when your partner can control himself before marriage, he will be able to control himself after marriage.

One may ask: Why keep your virginity when you can have fun? Because sex has the uncanny ability to create a lasting connection with another person, and the voices of your previous sex partners hovering over you when you embark on a serious relationship can be very disconcerting.

Rage and insecurity can hinder the formation of a healthy relationship and it is very lonely to be in such marriages.

Intentionally or unintentionally, Yale-NUS’ policy propagates a lifestyle that begets relational loneliness.

S’porean Christians finding ways to defend moral future of nation

S’porean Christians finding ways to defend moral future of nation

They are against irresponsible, immoral consumption of certain foods and beverages.

It appears that the age-old adage “You are what you eat” is ringing truer than ever here in Singapore among some Christian circles.

Several groups of Christians are reportedly doing up a list and printing pamphlets to inform others like them to watch their diets closely to avoid contaminating their bodies with certain types of foods.

They want to stop irresponsible and immoral consumption as it can cause man-love.

For example, straight men are discouraged from consuming

Potatoes

potato-dick

Chillies

chili-dick

Cucumbers

cucumber-dick

Carrots

carrot-dick

Eggplants

eggplant-dick

On the other hand, gay men are encouraged to drink copious amounts of Pokka Straight Red Tea.

pokka-straight-red

This will help to realign any crooked sexual disorientation.

This process of watching what one puts into one’s mouth is tantamount to defending the moral future of the nation.

And it comes after a meeting between Law Minister K Shanmugam and leaders of a network of churches that frowns upon man-love — ironically called, LoveSingapore.

Pastor Lawrence Khong of Faith Community Baptist Church said the leaders and the Law Minister talked about “defending the moral future” of the nation at the meeting.

Lawrence had written to the Law Minister previously and the meeting took place on Feb. 15, which was Total Defence Day.

However, it is not known how or if the public-at-large can ever defend itself from this type of Christians.

Indonesia's only sex therapist seems confident enough in her subject matter

Zoya Amirin has come across every myth imaginable in her job as sex psychologist in Indonesia: An uncircumcised girl will become sex-crazed. Clove cigarettes increase virility. A gecko’s saliva can cure AIDS.

Knowing such misinformation can ruin relationships and even lives, Amirin — the only woman certified in her field in the world’s most populous Muslim nation — has decided to launch a weekly podcast to provide some frank, accurate talk about the bedroom. Read the full story

SlutWalk: a celebration of the right to be slutty even when you aren’t

SlutWalk: a celebration of the right to be slutty even when you aren’t

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


An initial protest against rape victim blaming has somehow transformed into a movement for non-slutty women to walk out in their undies without fear of being called an eyesore.

It all started when Toronto policemen informed women attending a “personal security class” in York university that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”.

What followed was an outraged protest against rape-victim-blaming in the form of the SlutWalk. SlutWalk, essentially, is a march celebrating the inner slut that apparent exists within all women. Characterised by hordes of women proudly painting the streets with their bodies clad in either slutty attire or, for the more conservative ones, a simple T-shirt with the word “SLUT” scrawled hastily, the slutwalk is an extension of women’s rights which now apparently encompasses a woman’s rights to look like a slut without shame or fear of being raped.

It’s happened in Toronto, Boston, London, New Delhi and one’s happening right here in Singapore in December.

Now fellas, before you start letting your imagination run wild with images of women dressed as porn stars flocking the streets, take a closer look at the picture above.

Plus-sized, ugly, plain, old – women come in all shapes and sizes. All these women who’re out on the streets protesting, clearly have a deep-seated fear of being raped.

Now there’s really no way to put this across sensitively –

a slut has to be hot or at the very least, sexually attractive. Miss wholesome, blonde and chubby with her chubby counterpart? Not sluts. As for this liberated woman wearing the BDSM-inspired bra-top? She looks like an insane hyena, not a slut. As a wide-circulated internet saying goes: “Do not stick your dick in crazy”.

A happily liberated woman

Merely showing some skin doesn’t automatically bump just any woman into the “slut” category. If there were any benchmark to follow – this would probably exemplify The Slut.

A Hawt slut

That’s Julia Roberts’ hooker character in the movie Pretty Woman. That’s The Hot Slut. And a whore at that since she gets paid for sleeping around.

So what’s a slut? A woman who sleeps around – yes. Who wears her sexual availability prominently – yes. Who is promiscuous – yes. An average slut would be your not-bad-looking-under-strobe-lights, promiscuous skank out at St James on a Saturday night looking for a one-night stand. Ugly sluts exist too, but they’re probably more difficult to come by. Men, as I gather, look for attractive women to have intercourse with.

So here’s my confusion with the basic philosophy behind ‘SlutWalk’.

It started off as an indignant protest against the policeman who told a bunch of university students with conventional and not scientific wisdom that dressing like sluts would make one more susceptible to rape.

Then it became a demand for women to be able to dress like sluts without public disaffection, thereby putting a whole new spin on the familiar insults “you shameless slut”.

Now as the SlutWalk Singapore chapter in Singapore has stated: it has become a protest against sexual assault + a protest for rape victims’ rights + a demand for respect.

To paraphrase the gist of the message now: “I demand to be respected as an independent female even as I dress like a whore.” A Slut Pride parade if you will.

Except that – if the photos plastered online were any indication – a fair bit of SlutWalkers don’t exactly qualify as sluts. So unless these wholesome voluptious women with no business showing their overflowing bits in a overly-tight bra top out in public HAVE actually been called a slut previously, their protest to be called a slut without shame makes no sense. Like a meat-eating person joining PETA.

To put it more crudely: Put on some better fitting clothes woman. No one’s calling you a slut. And while you’re at it, get some higher-cut jeans too, your ass crack is showing.

Furthermore, various angry feminists groups and hardworking researchers have shown that rapists in fact, don’t give a hoot about their victims’ getup at all. So a protest for the right to dress like a slut without the fear of being raped, makes no sense either. All women – skanky or not – have an equal chance of being raped.

So what will be the purpose of SlutWalkers when they take to the streets here in December? A demand to be sexually promiscuous without fear of being raped? A demand to wear sexual promiscuity prominently and be respected as a moral woman at the same time? A demand for skankily-clad virgins not to be looked upon as whores?

Going by the previous SlutWalks, it’s probably going to be an occasion for women to turn up in their undies without fear of being judged by their sexual un-attractiveness as they rally together in a common message: the right to be respected no matter what.

Where the latest book about  infamous Singaporean ex-porn star Annabel Chong suffers and why it needs to be read in the context of other porn writings on the web.

By Belmont Lay

This is an article published in The Straits Times on May 23, 1999. Check out the caption. Who said New Nation editors are the only cheeky bastards around?

Annabel Chong, aka Grace Quek, is featured as a campy braless Wonder Woman-esque superhero treating the entire Central Business District around her ankles to an upskirt whilst arms akimbo.

This cover art is accompanied by a comic ka-pow caption with the exclamation: “Demystifying the legend of Singapore’s most famous pornstar!”

This cartoon caricature of a larger-than-life character is chosen as the cover art of Gerrie Lim’s latest book, Singapore Rebel, a title acknowledged as a respectful nod to rebel filmmaker Martyn See (not that the book has anything to do with him or dissident politician Chee Soon Juan).

And this is a book that is supposed to render an intellectual, argumentative thesis that is Annabel Chong: penetrative, comprehensible and convincing.

And that’s a tall order.

So much has been said about Annabel since her 1995 record-smashing gangbang where she committed 251 sex acts in ten hours with approximately 70 men that it is easy to depict her as a depraved nympho and leave it at that.

But this effort by Gerrie, going back in time and digging through archives of Annabel Chong interviews, is supposed to take you under her skin, so to speak. The book reexamines and explains why she is still culturally relevant and sensational after all these years, and also identifies the perpetual source of angst and rebellion for people like Gerrie and Annabel who can only find a sense of belonging in subcultures that can never be bred in Singapore.

In both cases, it is her ability to feel comfortably at home in the adult entertainment industry.

And be professional about it while sending a highly personal and political message, as I would imagine, back to conservative Singapore.

But is this effort by Gerrie, an author of numerous non-fiction books and articles inside and outside the adult entertainment industry, capable of swinging people’s perception of Annabel Chong?

Highly unlikely.

You see, Singapore’s most famous pornstar is an oddity. Because when you think about it, countless Singaporeans have squeezed past and fallen through our system, but there has only been one case of Annabel Chong.

And when you get on with the book, she becomes more problematic because she poses a formidable challenge to everything we know and assume we know about women, sex, passivity and harlotry.

She is intense, aggressive and dangerous in her approach of making a poignant point through her work in porn. And when she left, she left abruptly, to become a computer programmer, no less.

She is, and rather accurately portrayed I guess, as a major bird-flipper, a hardworking, living, breathing example of an eff-you to all the perceived public and private institutions of uprightness, moral rectitude and normality.

In the cold, sterile and clinical academic approach to objective study of a subject by Gerrie, the vagina is touted as a sheath that protects the penis, a weapon in its own right, and so it shouldn’t get hurt from penetration.

She possesses that sort of daring-do that pushes the boundaries of political incorrectness and possibilities.

But you, as the reader of the text, need to work very hard to get beyond the vulgar display of rebellion to arrive at its political meaning and try to understand what motivated Annabel Chong to be an atypical Singaporean.

And that’s only the beginning of the tricky part.

Next, try not to be floored by some of the main arguments put forth by the book:

  • The act of sex can be used as a parody
  • Sex, when focused on numbers, is ridiculous because the joke’s on you if you’re keeping count (e.g. how do you define one act of penetration?)
  • Sex is empowering for women as not all of them are exploited or feel exploited because there is such a thing as “consensual degradation” and because women enjoy sex and do make more money than men while doing it professionally
  • Plus, Annabel Chong is the female version of a male stud because she can have it all

Oh yes, and lastly, in the cold, sterile and clinical academic approach to objective study of a subject by Gerrie, the vagina is touted as a sheath that protects the penis, a weapon in its own right, and so it shouldn’t get hurt from penetration.

In all seriousness, Gerrie also writes in his book: “She was extolling the virtues of more open-minded thinking through a seemingly grosteque act committed in full public view via the technology of home video.”

Which makes one wonder: Is it possible to take the premise of a pornographic gangbang to such logical conclusions and on such academic terms?

And am I being a close-minded twit for not thinking so?

What Gerrie can proposition with cocksure assurance and composure, you might not necessary swallow whole.

To read the book on its own, and express incredulity, is therefore, intuitive and reasonable. That much you should expect from the average reader.

So this is where you might have to look elsewhere for supporting complementary text to put what Gerrie has to say in context.

And this is also where the book suffers.

Singapore Rebel becomes ineffable and alienating because you cannot automatically draw connections. It needs relations, like other penetrative carnal accounts of porn and why people do what they do, which can be easily accessed on the web (like how you can find real porn!).

 

Take, for example, this piece of writing about Sasha Grey (apparently famous enough to appear on TV for an interview with Tyra Banks.)

Or this one about John Holmes (whose legendary schlong is modestly described as “bigger than a pay phone, smaller than a Cadillac”).

Or this piece by a somewhat unknown ex-entertainment editor of Hustler magazine, who shamelessly and falsely ranked himself as the “Top 50 most influential people in the adult industry” because “deception and lies are the essence of pornography”.

In all three cases, it provides a sneak peak into what drives such characters and the range of personalities that exists within the porn subculture.

They’re all exasperating reads but they should serve as writings worth making comparisons with.

But there exists two other minor points that are recurring bugbears: Gerrie’s book can take the form of a rebuke to conservative minds and there is a sense of aggrandisement of the Annabel Chong phenomenon.

On the latter, I only have this to say: The best way that anyone can think of the Annabel Chong phenomenon is that it remains dormant for periods during remission only to act up once in a while.

Just like a case of herpes.

Do men cheat because their wives suck in bed?

Actually yes. Because women of wife-material are socialised not to enjoy sex.

By Fang Shihan

This man's two wives are from the Obedient Wives Club. Clearly, he's one happy man.

It’s a question that women have been trying to untangle since the union of a couple became a legal institution: Do husbands cheat because their wives are bad in bed?

Recently disgraced New York congressman, Anthony Weiner, had his bulging crotch published over his twitter feed after he accidentally posted it to ‘everyone’ instead of ‘some chick he wanted to fap off to’.

Like all good politicians, he blamed it on a bogeyman – a hacker.

Former california governor Arnie went a step further, fathering a child with his housekeeper who looked like…well, an aging housekeeper. The fact that he kept it under wraps for 10 years, actually shows that he is not too bad an actor.

Closer to home, we’ve got Jack Neo and his never-quite-made-it model former girlfriend.

And an ancient rumour that was never confirmed of a local ex-CEO-of-a-government-linked-public-listed-company’s trysts with a woman in Australia.

The debate surrounding these controversies tend to revolve around two key themes: a) The husbands cheated because they were dicks or b) the wives were somehow not satisfying them sexually.

a) has been accepted as fact. The male species’ need for sex has been acknowledged as an instinct, not a desire, and is as crucial for their well-being as food. b) brings the onus of the relationship onto the wives who have to satisfy this uncompromising need.

 anthony weiner

Anthony weiner's...weiner, straight from the tweet.

Support groups like the BDSM-sounding “Obedient Wives Club” claim to train housewives to be better at sex than ‘first class prostitutes’, assuming that with their sexual urges satisfied, husbands will have no reason to look elsewhere but at home.

Sorry to break the news but blowjobs won’t be as fantastic if its just a call of duty. The crux of the problem doesn’t lie in sexual prowess but how both genders are socialised to regard sex as an unequal activity.

The enjoyment of coitus has long been a birth right of men, an instinct as base as eating or having a beer (halal or otherwise) on a hot sunny afternoon.

The male brain

Yet women who show signs of desiring sex are regarded as a quirk of nature or worse, promiscuous. On top of that, women who engage in pre-marital sex are more likely to be penalised compared to their male counterparts.

Thus, the average woman who’s been brought up to regard sex as a taboo topic will be far less experienced than her deviant, promiscuous counterparts, and most definitely less exposed to sex than the average male.

This is not to say that the average woman does not engage in pre-marital sex (please lah, 2011 already can?), but sex as a topic doesn’t typically make pub conversation for women, unlike men.

Even more so for women of marriageable material, also known as the Nice Girls you bring home to visit mum.

Conservative, respectable creatures, the institution of The Wife is a non-sexual one – a person who provides security, emotional commitment, raises the family, stabilises your life, and is probably someone that you’d take out to show off to your friends.

If she can f***, well that’s great. But the criterion for Wife and Pornstar hardly overlap.

In this context, women are structurally disadvantaged to cope with the myriad of fetishes and fantasies men have been accustomed to, thanks to the proliferation of free pornography and lack of societal inhibitions towards male sexual conquest.

Men therefore cheat on their companions partly because of unrealistic expectations of sex and partly because of the functional contradictions between The Wife and the woman they fap off to in the bathroom.

The latter, ranging from random women online or creatures ending with .jpg and .mpeg, tend to resemble temporary fantasies, summoned to satisfy a need and disposed of thereafter.

Yet men who cheat are by far the minority because the cost of losing a companion through infidelity is far greater than the temporary gratification of sexual release.

In any case, these urges can be satisficed with much lower risk at hand (pun totally intended).

Even women who manage to master the elusive art of being a nun in public and a whore in bed isn’t spared from potential infidelity.

The terminator standing beside Emmy-award winning producer and best selling author of 6 books Maria Shriver. Hawt?

Take the classic case of Arnie vs. Maria Shriver for instance – wife hot? Check. Respectable in public? Check. Husband cheated? Check.

And with a fugly woman no less.

Could Baena possibly be better than Shriver in bed? Maybe. But the sexual attraction lay more in her adulation with Mr. Terminator and the ego-stoking he got from it, than actual technical competency.

So in response to the question: Do husbands cheat because their wives suck in bed?

Yes. And is the Obedient Wives club the answer to it? Hell no.

Monogamy fails because of a mismatch of expectations. A woman enters an agreement to be The Wife and not The ‘Ho.

No matter how hard she tries, sex will never be as satisfying because she regards it as part of the ‘things a wife should do’ list. If she manages to be The Awesome Wife (‘ho package included), her men tend to develop self-esteem issues. So he’s still going to cheat.

What a bummer.

Arnie cheated on Maria Shriver with this woman.

But we’re all forgetting something here: Good sex is a core component of any stable relationship and the best sex only occurs when both parties are fully immersed in the activity.

If a woman regards the sexual satisfaction of her husband primarily as a call of duty, of course it’s going to suck.

So while wives are structurally disadvantaged when it comes to the technical nitty-gritty of sex, husbands have no such excuse.

Mutual enjoyment is the key to motivating both parties to be better at anything, including mastering the Kama Sutra.

And voila, that solves both the problems of women being lousy at it, and men suffering from the lack of it.

New Nation presents a unique way of covering the elections.

By Terence Lee

Here's our first Virgin Voter graphic - the Schoolgirl Virgin Voter! Put this up on Facebook and make your confession.

THIS year, I will be voting for the first time, and so will my fellow editors (except Belmont, who’s an old timer). There are about 100,000 people like us; maiden voters who are about to catch the excitement of the polls.

While one of our writers has said that voting is like having sex, I disagree.

Voting is better than sex. Or chocolate. Why? Because while an average person is likely to do the dance countless times, contingent on the fact that he or she has the EQ to get laid, that same person may reach 80 and never get a chance to vote. Ever.

That’s especially true if you live in a constituency where no opposition dare to tread.

For the luckier ones, assuming we live till a 100 and the elections happen once every five years, we’d get at most 16 shots at the voting booth.

If I were you, I’d be super invigorated.

Therefore, we folks at New Nation want to celebrate the fact that we’ll be Virgin Voters. From today onwards, you’ll be hearing from many first-timers about their thoughts towards the elections, the candidates, and the proceedings.

Some of us will even be providing coverage of our respective constituencies, speaking to MPs, candidates, and voters. We’ll be attending rallies and walkabouts, giving you our unique take on the elections, through the eyes and dirty minds of a virgin voter.

Now, as you know, it takes two to tango.

While, we, the editors and writers of this humble online magazine, are eager to get off the starting block, we are counting on you, the reader, to contribute with us. Whether you are a virgin voter or a second timer, it doesn’t matter. And if you’re 60 and doing it for the first time, there’s no shame in that.

And we don’t care whether you’re pro-PAP, or anti-PAP, lesbian or straight, passionate or blah. Here’s how you can help:

1) Write for us. Or help with photography and making videos. Share your thoughts about the elections, and we’ll publish them. If you’d like to take this one step further and cover the elections in your constituency, do let us know too. Email us at [email protected] if you’re interested.

2) Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and share the gospel of the Virgin Voters with your heathen friends.

3) Share the pride of being a Virgin Voter using one of our unique Facebook display pics. We will be launching new ones every week on our Facebook page. Don’t like them? Why not create your own, and share it with your friends, and us?

Together, let’s make our first time a less scary one!

As strange as it might seem, men reject sex too.

By Charlene Chia, for the writing contest.

Image: DUCKofD3ath

JOSIAH, 19, is a boyish charmer many girls would love to date. He’s a school debater, articulate and well-dressed. He’s every inch a babe magnet. His Facebook profile says that he’s interested in meeting women as he’s looking for a relationship. He’s been through two relationships – the only unusual thing about him is his belief in abstinence.

By this, Josiah means that love is much more than sex. “I once saw an old woman, wheelchair-bound and unable to move much. She was being fed by her husband, spoonful by spoonful. He would gently wipe away food that has dribbled from her mouth and it was obvious to anyone watching that he truly cared for his aged and disabled wife.”

“When I saw that scene, it struck me that, this is what I want. I want my relationship to be one that can last. I want it to be one that is comfortable with or without sex. I want to be able to love my partner and potentially future wife even when we are in our 60s and 70s and unable to have sex anymore. That is the relationship I’m looking for.”

With the rising tide of underage sex and pregnancy, it’s difficult to believe that any guy would break up with their girlfriend because she wouldn’t stop pressing him for sex.

“I know sex is common nowadays and most people jump into it without a second thought. But to me, there is more to a relationship than sex. If a relationship cannot exist without sex, then the only question I have is ‘What relationship is there?’”

To him, a relationship is about being together for the pleasure of each other’s company and understanding each other on a different level than friends do.

“My ex could not understand or accept that. If she couldn’t accept my point of view on such a critical issue then it just shows that we were not suited for each other.”

In most cases, it’s usually the girl who says no to sex. But the situation is reversed for him.

“Denying her of sex was probably one of the most terrible things I have done to her since I have never heard her use such strong words against me before.” Josiah says with a wry smile.

“She said things like, ‘what the hell you mean you don’t want? It’s not like you’re committing rape. You are fucking stubborn. I hate you!’”

Shoutbox

“I felt like I was dating playboy bunny, she started to dress more skimpily than usual and behaving less appropriately. My girlfriend didn’t exist anymore.” — Josiah

“I feel sad for those who reject sex. They are missing out on a lot.” — Walid

“I wouldn’t give up my religious views or cast them aside just because the rest of the world is behaving differently.” — Colin

Perhaps the one thing that really baffles us is the possibility that a straight guy does not want sex. A lot of men tend to jump at the offer of sex from a hot girl. The general consensus is that the more girls a man scores with, the manlier he is.

However, the world rarely stops to consider the fact that men have different backgrounds influencing their everyday lives and how they think.

Colin Chia, 22, a social volunteer, feels that if a girl cannot understand that sex to him is something important and should be kept between a married couple, she is disregarding his principles and his beliefs.

“As a Christian, I believe that marriage and sex is something sacred. The very least my girlfriend can do is to respect my decision,” he says vehemently.

“I think if we were to have partners before marriage, it will be something that casts a shadow on our future relationships. Many of my female friends who are dating have at one point or another said they were worried their boyfriends will compare them with the other girls they have done. I don’t plan to put that kind of stress on my girlfriend.”

This might come across as old fashioned but it sure impresses the ladies.

Stella Leong, 18, a Junior College student, says, “These men must be big on morals and principles. It’s rare and really nice to know they are still out there. I thought chivalry no longer existed. They are a keeper!”

“It takes a real man to be able to do this. It’s usually the reverse that happens,” says Aranya, 19, a student. “I hope the guy I date in the future would have similar ideals.”

It’s never an easy task to stand by your own beliefs but Josiah perseveres. “Many of my male friends think that I’m a wuss for rejecting sex. But I know that women out there respect a man who is firm in what he believes and is able to do the right thing and that is good enough for me.”

Josiah’s friends are not the only ones who think that men who reject sex are “wusses”. Yan Zhi, a 20-year-old national service man said, “I’m someone who gives my girlfriend whatever she demands. I think breaking up over not having sex is the stupidest thing any guy can do.”

Walid Shah, a 19-year-old student, shares the same attitude, “A girl standing in front of you and saying she wants to sleep with you is probably the most irresistible thing on earth. I am not going to be a fool and say no!”

We may live in a world where sex is practiced freely and celebrity sex scandals and naked pictures are regular gossip fodder but men like Josiah and Colin still exists.

As Colin aptly puts it, “I think in a world where morality is becoming increasingly relative, people still respect a man who stays true to his convictions, principles and beliefs.”
