Singapore proposes laws against sex tourism and child prostitution

SINGAPORE -- Singapore's Ministry of Home Affairs is proposing new laws to combat child prostitution and sex tourism, as part of the first major amendments to the penal code in 22 years.

Prostitution is not an offence in the city-state but the proposed amendments would make it a crime to purchase or solicit sex from anyone under the age of 18.

"What this new section does is to enhance the age of protection for females to include 16 and 17 year olds when commercial sex is involved," the ministry said.

The purchase or solicitation of anyone under 18 in a foreign country would become an offence which could be prosecuted in Singapore.

Local media have reported that some Singaporeans travel to the nearby Indonesian island of Batam for sex with teenage girls.

"By introducing the extra-territorial laws, we will send a strong signal that we are against this appalling act and deter those who are inclined towards such acts," the ministry said.

The ministry said there is no special emphasis on the review of sexual offences in its revamp of the penal code.

I'd approve of the law to protect minors but I'm not crazy about countries expanding their penal codes on their citizens beyond their own territory, that's too much Big Brother for me.

The countries where these people would allegedly go to have sex with minors need better laws and enforcement, IMO.

Swingers swap sex partners in prudish Singapore

SINGAPORE -- Every two months, dozens of couples meet in a pub in Singapore, have drinks, mingle, and then decide whether they want to sleep with one another.

In Sydney or Seattle nobody would bat an eyelid, but the couples are part of a thriving underground swinging scene that is an anomaly for a country where oral sex is illegal and Playboy magazine is banned.

There are at least 10 swingers clubs in Singapore, most of them private, some of them online. With more than 6,000 members, the Web-based United SG Swingers is one of the biggest.

"There are a lot more people that are open to the idea. It's so widespread now," said a 42-year-old Singaporean company executive who only wanted to be identified as Jack.

"Swinging is all about sex. It's satisfying the urge to have casual sex and doing it with somebody you're comfortable with," said Jack, who has been swinging for 10 years.

For all their enthusiasm, few swingers tell family and friends about their lifestyle, although the practice is not illegal in Singapore.

"In Singapore, most people will perceive us as perverts," said a 39-year-old publisher who has been swinging for five years. "Look at our government policies, they say: 'Let's open up.' But our policies have always remained very conservative."

Wealthy Singapore, which has consistently ranked near the bottom in a global survey of sexually active nations, has been struggling to shake off its reputation for prudishness.

Friday, it opened Sexpo 2006, the country's second sex exhibition, featuring an array of toys and seminars.

At United SG Swingers, people share erotic photographs, exchange personal ads and correspond about the next gathering. It is a close-knit community in which couples recommend good sex partners and criticize those who aren't.

A police spokesman confirmed that swinging is not illegal as long as it is done behind closed doors, is consensual and no money changes hands.

This year, the organizers of United SG Swingers started holding "on premise" parties, where couples can engage in group sex in houses and hotel rooms across Singapore.

At these parties, the bedrooms have a strict clothes-off rule and the "hard swingers" can engage in partner swapping. The "soft swingers" are couples who stand around and watch, or have sex with their own partners in full view of others.

Couples who swing say that seeing their own partners in action keeps their passion burning.

"It's like looking at cake and wanting to eat it," said the main organizer of United SG Swingers, 37-year-old IT specialist Josh, as his 32-year-old wife nodded in agreement.

But some swingers disapprove of these parties, saying they can degenerate into orgies.

"You can't establish pure friendships when there's a large group," said Ishak. "Genuine swingers would want to establish trust -- you can't trust a person just by meeting them one time and then think they can do it with your wife."

A 34-year-old Australian who attends swinging parties told Reuters that Singapore's scene is just evolving.

"It's very innocuous here, it's not like other countries," he said. "Compared to Australia and Europe, it's more discreet and less lively. Singaporeans are pretty reserved in a lot of ways."

I'd be happy to try "swinging" but my wife won't have anything to do with it anything like that. To be honest, I'm not sure who is more bored in our marriage, her or me. I've tried to talk with her about it but she just clams up. I don't know what happened, she doesn't talk much about anything. I'm the talker in our relationship. And I'm tired of it.

Erectile dysfunction prevalent in Asia: Pfizer

SINGAPORE -- An estimated 20 percent of Asian men suffer from erectile dysfunction, an executive from pharmaceutical firm Pfizer said.

"It is a prevalent issue," Jude Selvaraj, Pfizer's medical adviser in Singapore and Malaysia, said at the launch of Pfizer's new diagnostic kit to help men deal with erectile dysfunction.

"You are talking about 20 percent plus," he said, giving a rough figure.

Sex is still a taboo subject in much of Asia and many men are reluctant to admit they suffer from the problem, or to seek medical help, said Selvaraj.

According to Pfizer, which makes the anti-impotency drug Viagra, erectile dysfunction affects between 13 and 28 percent of all men aged 40 to 80.

The number of men suffering from the condition is estimated to increase to 322 million by 2025, from more than 152 million in 1995, Pfizer said.

Pfizer's new diagnostic kit, the Erection Hardness Score (EHS), grades erection hardness from one to four to provide a guide for assessing sexual status.

A score of four means the penis is completely rigid while a score of one means it is larger but not hard, Pfizer said in a statement.

"The EHS provides a quantitative measure of the degree of erection hardness and therefore treatment efficacy in patients with erectile dysfunction," the firm said.

Victoria Lehmann, a sex therapist from Britain, said the EHS was easy to use and would help couples address the problem.

"It's quick. It provides a really clear language to both doctors and patients," she said at the launch.

Lehmann likened a score of one to tofu. Four is similar to a cucumber, she said.

A survey released last week said Asia's lovers rate sex far less highly than those elsewhere around the globe, spend less time having intercourse and are not as likely to reach orgasm.

Condom-maker Durex surveyed more than 26,000 people in 26 countries and found Asians ranked themselves among the least satisfied with their sex lives.

Oral, anal sex to be legalised in Singapore bill

SINGAPORE, Sept 17, 2007 (AFP) — Oral and anal sex in private between consenting heterosexual adults would be legalised under a bill introduced in Singapore's parliament on Monday.

Under the city-state's first major penal code amendments in 22 years, a section criminalising "carnal intercourse against the order of nature" would be repealed.

The bill would also create new offences to tackle child prostitution and sex tourism.

Singapore has in recent years gradually eased social restrictions that have given it a straight-laced reputation. But while the bill takes a softer line on heterosexual sex, a ban on acts of "gross indecency" between males will remain.

Gay rights activists have said authorities have not laid charges under the section in recent years, even though it remains in force.

Vivian Balakrishnan, Singapore's Second Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts, said earlier this year that the city-state was undergoing liberalisation while retaining a very strong conservative core.

Although prostitution itself is not an offence in Singapore, the bill would make it an offence to obtain commercial sex with a person under 18. Conviction could lead to a prison term of up to seven years, while communicating for such a purpose could bring up to two years in jail, the bill says.

Similar offences committed abroad would attract the same punishments, it says.

Local media have reported that some Singaporeans travel to the nearby Indonesian island of Batam for sex with teenage girls.

In another new provision, making travel arrangements intended to facilitate under-age commercial sex abroad would bring up to 10 years in prison, the bill says.

The revised penal code, still to be passed into law by parliament, also broadens the scope of an offence against unlawful assembly.

An assembly of five or more people would be illegal if the group's common objective is to commit "any offence," the bill says, broadening the definition from mischief and trespass.

Singapore's laws against unlawful assembly gained prominence during last year's meetings in the
city-state by the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

Pro-democracy activist Chee Soon Juan engaged in a three-day standoff with police, who stopped him and a small group of followers from marching to the meeting venue after police rejected his application for a permit.

That rules out homosexuality effectively enough... if we can't suck dick or take it up the ass without breaking the law what's the point of being gay? LOL. Perhaps it's a covert (not so covert, IMO) attempt to do just that.

Singapore relaxes sex law but not for gays
October 23, 2007

Image

Singapore on Tuesday legalised oral and anal sex between heterosexual couples but retained a law which criminalises intercourse between gay men.

In the city-state's first major penal code amendments in 22 years, parliament repealed a section criminalising "carnal intercourse against the order of nature."

Parliament however kept the penal code's section 377A, which makes sex between men a criminal offence, rejecting a petition by gay-rights activists and their non-homosexual supporters to abolish the law as well.

Opponents of the law say it is a relic of British colonial rule. The law punishes offenders with up to two years in jail, although it has rarely been enforced.

Under the just-approved amendments, new offences were enacted to tackle child prostitution and sex tourism as well as cover crimes committed with the use of technology such as the Internet and mobile phone text messaging.

But a rare petition read in parliament to abolish the law banning sex between men sparked the most passionate debates in the normally staid legislature dominated by the ruling People's Action Party.

Legislators supporting the law's retention centred their arguments on the need to maintain family and moral values in the conservative Asian society, while proponents appealed for equal treatment of minorities guaranteed by the constitution.

Member of parliament Siew Kum Hong, who supported the petition, said legalising sexual acts between two consenting heterosexual adults while refusing to decriminalise the same acts between homosexual men was discriminatory.

But Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong weighed in for the retention of the law, saying that Singapore remains a conservative society -- with the traditional family as its main building bloc -- and homosexuals cannot set the tone for the mainstream.

Abolishing the law could "send the wrong signal" and push gay activists to ask for more concessions, such as same-sex marriage and parenting, Lee said.

Gays "are free to lead their lives and pursue their social activities," the prime minister said, citing the existence of gay websites and gay bars.

"But there are restraints, and we do not approve of them setting the tone of mainstream society," he said.

"They live their lives, that's their personal space. But the tone of the overall society, I think, it remains conventional, it remains straight and we want it to remain so."

Lee said keeping the statute unchanged while not aggressively enforcing it remained the best option.

Singapore would adapt to global economic changes in order to stay competitive, but must take a more cautious approach when it comes to moral values, Lee said.

"We were right to uphold the family unit when Western countries went for experimental lifestyles in the 1960s -- the hippies, free love," he said.

"But I'm glad we did that because today if you look at Western Europe, the marriage as an institution is dead, families have broken down, the majority of children are born out of wedlock and live in families where the father and the mother are not husband and wife living together bringing them up."

Gay rights activists say the law against homosexual sex affects about 200,000 people in the wealthy island-republic of more than four million.

Airline brings lovers down to earth
Wed Oct 31, 2007

A journalist inspects a double bed first class suite during a media tour of the Airbus A380 superjumbo after it landed at Singapore's Changi Airport October 17, 2007.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) — Singapore Airlines, the first operator of the new Airbus A380, has dashed the hopes of sexual thrill-seekers planning to engage in amorous activity aboard the world's biggest jumbo jet.

The carrier said it would ask passengers on the A380 to refrain from sex while ensconced in one of its 12 first-class suites, which boast the world's first airborne double beds.

"All we ask of customers, wherever they are on our aircraft, is to observe standards that don't cause offence to other customers and crew," the company told Reuters in a statement.

"Nothing different applies for our Singapore Airlines Suites customers."

While private, the double cabins are neither sound proofed nor completely sealed.

Singapore Airlines, the world's second-largest airline by market value, started commercial flights of the double-decker A380 last week with a Singapore-Sydney service.

"So they'll sell you a double bed, and give you privacy and endless champagne and then say you can't do what comes naturally?" Tony Elwood, who traveled with wife Julie in a suite aboard the inaugural flight, told the Times of London.

"They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters," Julie said. "I'd say they shouldn't really complain, should they?"

Microsoft video game banned for sex scene?
Thur Nov 15, 2007

Image
Mass Effect video game by Microsoft is seen in this undated publicity photo.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) — Singapore has banned a Microsoft Corp video game which contains a scene showing a human woman and an alien woman kissing and caressing each other, a local newspaper reported Thursday. The Straits Times said "Mass Effect" -- a highly anticipated futuristic space adventure game from Microsoft -- was banned by Singapore's Media Development Authority.

In October, Singapore's parliament decided to keep a ban on sex between men, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that the city-state should keep its conservative values and not allow special rights for homosexuals.

Singapore is the only country to have banned the game, so far, and it is the first Microsoft video game to be banned in the city-state, The Straits Times said.

The move has caused an outcry among local and international gamers who said the decision was too strict, the newspaper said.

The report said Singapore has in the past, banned at least two other video games -- Sony Corp's "God Of War 2," for nudity, and unlisted Top Cow Productions' "The Darkness," for excessive violence and religiously offensive expletives.

Man who filmed oral sex with girlfriend fined for having obscene video
He filmed the entire act on digital camera and the video was later circulated on Internet.

By Chong Chee Kin

SINGAPORE -- It was a casual fling - boy meets girl, boy convinces girl to perform oral sex on him and he films the entire act on his digital camera.

Now, Mohamad Radzi Mohamad Jasni, has landed himself in trouble for possession of the obscene video clip.

He was fined $1,000 but escaped a maximum six-month jail term.

A district court on Friday heard how Radzi, 30, and his 16-year-old girlfriend, whom he got to know over the Internet, had gone down to the void deck of Block 893D in Woodlands Drive 50 in 2005.

He brought the woman, a student, up to the 11th floor where she performed oral sex on him while he filmed the entire act on his digital camera.

The clip was downloaded onto his computer but it was later circulated on the Internet before the girl found out about it and reported it to the police.

The identity of the person who circulated the video remained unknown. Radzi claimed he had since deleted the clip, which he recorded for his private viewing.

In his mitigation, his lawyer, Mr Anand Nalachandran, told the court that there was no commercial motive behind his client's action and he did not intend for anyone else to see the recording.

Singapore government plays Cupid for Valentine's Day
Feb 12 2008

Image

Worried that a low birth rate could threaten the country's very survival Singapore's government is playing Cupid, using Valentine's Day to promote romance and marriage.

In a city where many singles say they are too busy making money to make love, the government plans to step up its official "Romancing Singapore" campaign on Thursday, the traditional lovers' day, to encourage people to take up dating.

The campaign, launched in 2002 and managed commercially by the private sector since 2005, has lined up a series of events throughout February and on Valentine's Day itself to try to reverse the falling birthrate.

And a separate initiative sees the government directly funding efforts to promote romance.

In 2006 it launched the one-million-Singapore-dollar (704,000 US) Partner Connection Fund to support dating agencies that come up with what it called new "social interaction opportunities" for singles.

"A lot of countries, they let nature take its course but in Singapore because of our work and lifestyle, we don't have a lot of time," said Andrew Chow, a manager with Romancing Singapore.

"We are trying to educate the singles that dating is in fact a lifestyle. I think nowhere else in the world does things like Singapore."

Among the events Romancing Singapore has planned to give Cupid a helping hand is an evening date on the newly-opened Singapore Flyer, the world's tallest observation wheel at 42 storeys high.

The Valentine's Day event, billed as "Love In A Capsule," is organised by Romancing Singapore and Clique Wise, another social networking outfit.

From movie marathons, Friday night shopping sprees and treasure hunts, Romancing Singapore says it has tapped more than 5,000 singles to participate in previous events.

Love comes at a price, though -- a date on the Singapore Flyer costs 140 US dollars, which includes a gourmet dinner at a spa resort. All 24 slots have been booked, said Chow.

Violet Lim, co-founder of dating agency Lunch Actually, agreed Singapore's fast-paced lifestyle has made it hard for couples to connect.

"We play the role of an introducer," she said. "A lot of people who join us, they are not exactly people who can't find dates on their own. I would say it's more due to their schedules."

A subsidiary of Lunch Actually, Eteract.com, received funding from the government's Partner Connection Fund for its online dating platform.

The platform allows singles to get acquainted by chatting and even playing games in cyberspace, said Lim, adding the identities of participants have been verified.

The number of babies born per woman in Singapore fell to an historic low of 1.24 in 2004 and 2005, far below the rate of 2.1 needed for the population to replenish itself, the government has said.

This shortage prompted authorities to offer cash incentives for couples having more than two children, encourage foreigners to adopt citizenship, and ease up on previously taboo subjects like sex.

"We have managed to reverse the decline in births, but only barely," Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in a message on the eve of Lunar New Year earlier this month.

"Last year we only had 37,000 resident births, just 2,000 more than in 2004."

Lee said that ultimately the issue is not just about financial incentives but other factors including "social attitudes".

Singapore had a population of 4,588,600 last year but about one million of those were non-resident foreigners, official statistics show.

Perhaps among those numbers lies the partner Joyce Tia is seeking.

Tia, a group financial controller in her thirties, will join a dinner date organised by Ideas and Concepts dating agency on the eve of Valentine's Day.

"I am looking for a long-term relationship so having the dating agency to provide me the background of the person is good," said Tia.

Lessons in seduction for Singaporeans

By Thomas Bell, South East Asia Correspondent
24 March 2008

The Singapore government is offering students lessons in seduction in an attempt to boost the city state's flagging birth rates.

Students at two polytechnics can earn two credits towards their final degree by choosing the love elective. Activities include watching slushy films, holding hands and "love song analysis".

An 18-year-old mechanical engineering student, Isabel Seet, told the local Straits Times newspaper: "My teacher said if a guy looks into my eyes for more than five seconds, it could mean that he is attracted to me and I stand a chance.

"It's very interesting, and if I have a boyfriend in future, I'll know how to cope with any problems we may have."

Besides "love and sexuality", the curriculum also deals with the importance of family life.

The "trainers" are provided by the Social Development Unit, a government match-making agency that has married off 33,000 people since it was established in 1984.

Last week government minister Yu-Foo Yee Shoon warned young people not to put their career before establishing a family "because if you wait until then, sometimes it'll be a little too late".

But it is not so easy to put Singaporean youth in the mood for love. Another student, Kamal Prakash, said that the course has improved his relationship with his parents but he is still single.

"I think most people who take the course would find it easier to get a girlfriend," he said. "But I'm not really looking for a girlfriend now as I want to concentrate on my studies."

Singapore fines TV station for gay show
April 24, 2008

SINGAPORE (AP) — A Singapore television station has been fined for airing a show that depicted a gay couple and their baby in a way that "promotes a gay lifestyle," the city-state's media regulator said Thursday.

The Media Development Authority fined MediaCorp TV Channel 5 $11,000, it said in a statement on its Web site.

The station aired an episode of a home and decor series called "Find and Design" that featured a gay couple wanting to transform their game room into a new nursery for their adopted baby.

The authority said the episode contained scenes of the gay couple with their baby and the presenter's congratulations and acknowledgment of them as a family unit "in a way which normalizes their gay lifestyle and unconventional family setup."

The episode was in breach of rules on free-to-air television programming, which disallows content that promotes, justifies or glamorizes gay lifestyles, the statement said.

Earlier this month, the authority fined a Singapore cable television operator, StarHub Cable Vision $7,200 for airing a commercial that showed two lesbians kissing.

Under Singapore law, gay sex is deemed "an act of gross indecency," punishable by a maximum of two years in jail.

Despite the official ban on gay sex, there have been few prosecutions. Authorities have banned gay festivals and censored gay films, saying homosexuality should not be advocated as a lifestyle choice.
