Sex and the City: Size isn’t everything in Singapore

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s efforts to boost its fertility rate have just entered a new dimension – a much tinier one.
.
“You need a very small space to have sex,” Singapore senior minister of state Josephine Teo was quoted by the Straits Times newspaper as saying in a bid to challenge old habits and encourage young couples to have babies even if they have not settled into their own flat yet.
.
The wealthy Asian financial hub has the fifth lowest fertility rate in the world, at 1.3 births per woman, World Bank data shows. The population of the city-state, which faces labour shortages and aims to curb immigration, grew 1.2 percent last year, the slowest in more than a decade.
Teo’s comments caused a stir on social media. Some blogs came up with lists of the smallest places in Singapore which could fit the bill.
.
“Singaporeans are like birds, don’t expect to have eggs when there is no nest to lay them,” Facebook user Shawn Yang said.
.
Women rights activists said such comments did little to tackle the cause of a low birth rate.
.
“It’s clearly meant as a joke, (but it’s) fallen a bit flat,” Jolene Tan, head of advocacy and research at the Association of Women for Action and Research told Reuters.
.
“There’s still many barriers. Many women still face discrimination at work. Working hours in Singapore are still (much) longer than many other civil advanced economies.” –REUTERSRead More : http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/10/179873/sex-and-city-size-isnt-everything-singapore
