Busting out lacy undergarments seem to be the first step most women take when they want to spice things up in the bedroom. The survey found only 15.6 per cent have tried introducing sex toys into the bedroom.
Can't get no satisfaction
Only 1 in 5 readers say they are satisfied with their sex lives and all those surveyed say there wish they were having more sex. 60 per cent of we asked also confessed that they want their husband to be better in bed.

Oooh or aaah?
1 in 4 women says painful sex is their biggest sexual concern. Some sex-wrecking culprits contributing to the pain include vaginal dryness, yeast infections and vaginismus. But there’s a silver lining to their cloud: “Most conditions that cause painful intercourse are very treatable,” says Dr Debby Herbenick, author of Sex Made Easy.
Positioned for sex
Doggy style pips out missionary 42 to 31 per cent, and another 26 per cent prefers being on top.
20 minutes… that’s how long a majority of you say sex should last. Nearly half of those we asked say they don’t have enough time to have sex, however, despite sex only lasting an average of 5 to 9 minutes.
2 to 3 times a week
That’s the average frequency of sex, which means those surveyed are having sex 5.6 times a month. 25 per cent of you said that you’re only having sex thrice a month though, while another 11 per cent say it’s more like once in three months for them. For comparison, the regional average among other Asia-Pacific nations is 7.7 times a month.
The big O
One in four respondents says she reaches orgasm each time she has sex, while 60 per cent say it only happens occasionally.
58 per cent of our Singaporean respondents say they had the best sex of their lives when they were 26. This is line with global figures where women said their libido was highest between the ages of 18 and 24. Guess we’re not as prudish compared to the rest of the world!
