    2 / 5 Is There A "Slut-Shaming" Culture?

    Fosteredfriend: “Casual sex occurs extremely often but ironically, we have a slut-shaming culture as well.
    Casual sex is frowned upon within the older generations but the younger generation is more liberal and sees sex as a recreational activity. Singaporeans, generally, would not feel comfortable talking about sex unless you are close to them. Also, many of my friends use apps like Tinder and OKCupid to hook up with others.”

    Auxtron: “I agree about the slut-shaming culture, that is very strong here, for some girls the sex is taboo and they don’t talk a lot. This is why at the first look with can think casual sex is not popular . I saw people around me using dating app to meet people. As you already see Singaporean are not like North American or European, because of the culture they talk less about sex with people they just meet.”

    4 / 5 How About "Friends With Benefits"?

    Blahha87: “Personally I have never been in a ONS situation before, but fwb is possible if the girl is comfortable with you.
    Eg, was good friend with a girl, we did projects and went to the gym together, I apologised for staring at her butt while she did rows, one thing led to the other, a year later, attended her wedding. It felt weird shaking hands with her hubby tho.
    So I wouldn’t say a ONS and fwb is impossible, but relatively harder compared to the states seeing our society is more conservative, but people are people and we still love to f**k (not openly la, secret-secret ok)”
