Happen to read this in the “Channel Newsasia Web”
Aaaa…. I thought Singapore is getting more open when those Men’s Magazine hit the news stand… But after reading this… If it is really what they wrote… I’ll feel the government is so lame for letting the magazines enter Singapore based on those “results” they hoped to achieve outta it.
The article states some thing on the “Love Airways” Magazine that was just launched. Promoting some sort of open discussion in sex issue blah blah blah… But… it’s not like the Maxim, FHM types which have alot of those gals pictures in it. Instead… It’s more towards the “medical perspective”…
Anyway… What makes me ponder is this:
“Magazines like Playboy are banned in Singapore, whose government frowns on liberal Western social values but at the same time is alarmed by the city-state’s falling birth rate and trend for people getting married much later in life.
Only 36,000 babies were born in Singapore last year, short of the 50,000 needed annually to naturally replenish the population.
Blah Blah Blah…..
In recent years, foreign magazine franchises like FHM and Maxim, featuring scantily-clad cover girls, have been allowed to hit news stands.”
The way they put it is as though introducing FHM & Maxim in Singapore is to try improve the birth rate… Duh… What has the scantily-clad cover girls gotta do with birthrates man….
I kinda find it quite insulting to SG men & women… This is like saying Sg women are not attractive enough? Or means Sg men are all “ti ko pek” ? More insulting to women i think… Lol…. So So So lame… Sg women can’t get their men on bed meh …. & Y must the guys see the gals on the magazines then they can perform in bed meh… Kaoz… Then how come there isn’t any magazines for Gals in Sg?
But somehow, I do agree in a certain way that Sg Men are quite “Ti Ko”…
I commented to Eddie once about the difference between 60% of Sg Guys vs 80% of Caucasians…
When they see some one pretty:
Caucasians: “Hey pretty… Can I buy you a drink” (You can just smile and walk away)
Sg: Stare at you from head to toe… ( Even if you stare at him, he won’t stop)
It have been the “culture” for Caucasians to be open and express their feelings openly.. But for Singaporeans? Its as if the feelings can only be suppressed within… Then it seems as if they are using the eyes to “rape” gals now… Sometimes do have the tendency to find some bricks and slam them on those guys head when you see them on the streets.
Darn… When can Singapore be “truely” open?
Singaporeans are fakish… 50% of them… Personal View…
