Most Singaporeans are happy with their current sex lives, a recent survey on sexual habits and attitudes revealed.
Condom maker Durex released findings of its global sexual well-being survey on Thursday, and of the 506 Singaporeans who participated in it, around two-third of them (66 per cent) said they are satisfied with lives in the bedroom.
This puts Singapore in the middle ground when it comes to sexual satisfaction, with Indonesia (a whopping 89 per cent) and Hong Kong (56 per cent) taking up the two extremes in Asia.
In all, 29,003 adults from 26 countries including China, the United States and the United Kingdom took part in this survey that was conducted between September and October last year.
Respondents were asked questions on different aspects of their lives, such as health, sex and relationships and attitudes to sex and social circumstances.
Except for in Nigeria where the participants were asked these questions in person, the other respondents took part in online questionnaires administered by market research firm Harris Interactive.
Nearly 47 per cent of respondents in Singapore believe they become better husbands, wives or partners when they have good sex lives.
In contrast, respondents from outside Asia said the benefit of leading a fulfilling sex life is that it puts them in a better mood, with at least 60 per cent of the participants in South and North America, Europe and the Australasia region indicating that. Only 40 per cent of respondents in Singapore said the same.
Singaporeans are shy...
The survey also asked participants on how they improve their sex lives. On this, slightly more than one in four Singaporeans said they trawl the internet for information, while about 20 per cent of them said they use lubricants.
Only 22 per cent of those surveyed here said they talk to their partners in a bid to spice up things between the sheets. This number is lower compared to other participating countries like Malaysia (32 per cent), Indonesia (48 per cent) and Columbia (61 per cent).
But even as Singaporeans are adverse to talking about couple matters with their partners, they are willing to experiment with sex toys (24 per cent) and role-playing games (11 per cent) to improve their sex lives.
Nikhilesh Kalra, marketing director of Durex distributor Reckitt Benckiser Malaysia and Singapore, said the survey reveals the important role sex plays in helping couples develop emotional and physical bonds.
"Hence, it is important for men and women not to ignore this important aspect of their lives and communicate to their better halves and partners what having an ideal sex live means to them."
