Last Saturday, my visit to the barber shop was a hair-raising experience. My regular barber was cutting the hair of another customer. So I sat at the bench and waited for my turn. While waiting, I browsed through the magazines. These two magazines caught my eye because pretty Ann Kok was the cover girl of both magazines:
The magazine on the right looked familiar because Chris had reviewed one of the articles in it:
Incidentally, I wondered why Ann Kok is featured as the cover girl in so many magazines and yet I have never seen Patricia Mok featured as one:
Although Patricia is not as pretty as Ann, her complexion is alright and her acting is good enough to win her a Star Award recently.
Anyway back to the sex articles. The article on sex in the other magazine dated June 2005 is titled 'Poll: Sex During Periods - you love it!':
Inside, the article has a caption 'Would you have sex during your period?'
"No problem, say 70 per cent of the women polled. It's not that our men mind either". And the result of the sex poll is as follows:
24% says "Heavy flow? That's not stopping us."
48% says "I am hornier when I got my period."
62% says "It doesn't bother him one bit that I'm bleeding."
Don't ask me why the percentages add up to more than 100. The 'one
man woman, one vote' system obviously doesn't work here. So why are most men not bothered one bit that their partners are bleeding? Maybe they felt that it is less messy than using a self-made sex toy modified from a watermelon or cantaloupe which a blogo-friend recommended?
Actually, Ann Kok wasn't giving tips on sex. The articles were written by journalists. But
sometimes I wonder if journalists really did a poll. Are the figures accurate and do they reflect the general consensus? If a poll was conducted, why not release details on the sample size used and the racial, age and sexual compositions of the sample? (I believe that Asians are generally more conservative about sex.) Was the survey done anonymously and how did they know if the participants were giving honest answers? How come their poll results are always so different from the ones that I have casually conducted with my friends and colleagues? My friends and colleagues mostly claim that they married conservative partners. One respondent even claims that there are certain things that she won't do. Hmm... maybe they are not telling me the whole truth? Or perhaps what they say and what they do are not quite the same?
It looks like every issue of such magazines has at least one such controversial and sexciting article. I believe that its purpose is not so much educational but to improve the sales of the magazine. I also suspect that it is the same reason why Ann Kok is always on the cover and not Patricia Mok.
Now we know what the Ah Sohs, the Ah Niahs and even our wives are reading in such magazines and why they must always rush out to buy a copy whenever a new issue is released.
