Love or sex?

Maia Lee: "I long know that sex has more thrills than love, so who am I to complain.... I'm honest enough to tell you yes I am a closet nymphomaniac."

When STOMP blogger Maia Lee starts a new relationship, she is not averse to trumpeting it to the world. Why?

She says this is her way of making her new partner feel confident of her commitment to the relationship.

However, the downside to this is that everybody else sees it as a way to keep count of her bed partners. And worse, they see her bedroom behaviour as indicative of a liberal attitude towards sex.

When it comes to love and sex, which is more important? And should you use sex as a currency to bargain with when you embark on a relationship?

The struggle between liberal wants versus traditional values.

Most Singaporean women are trapped in keeping to the notion of traditional values versus the liberation of sexuality in relationships. The trapped women while enjoying their sexuality in the closet are putting up a front to demostrate their conservative values. It's a constant struggle especially when Singapore has grown so fast liberally and economically, yet the older generation is trying to hold the reins to prevent their young from running wild. This feeling among women is made worse with Singapore being a small country where you constantly bump into friends and relatives, who gives the 'slip of the tongue' to people you know.
