Yeah, they got something like 21 million members and around 13 countries I believe, including HK. But boy are they up in arms here. I told some of them on FB that I don't know what they are worried about. The only people who should worry are located on Desker Road, Geylang, Batam & sometimes JB. Their revenues will go down considerably. Golfing revenues will drop in Batam & JB as well. But as far as breaking up families, I doubt it. In fact, it might just save some marriages once pop figures out that mom can play the same game as well, just as easily, AND the odds are both parties will be clean (at least for a while) as I reckon they would be more inclined to protect both families.

Tempest in a double bed you ask me. The Nanny State will determine that the company would be detrimental to the reputation of the country and not allow them to register or do business. Mark my words. But the red light districts can stay. Go figger! :roll:

The organiser of the Facebook protest, a businessman who has identified himself only as Mr Tan, told Singaporean daily My Paper that Ashley Madison was "a systematic and orchestrated propagation of deteriorating values".


More like Uncle Tan, of Geylang Lorong 24.

I think SMS is definitely on to something, but I don't think it will hit that end of the market. The workforce in OT and bars around there may have to worry. Those patronizing Geylang and Batam are probably paying a fraction of the monthly subscription cost to this Ashley Madison site every time they go.

I anticipate this becoming quite an expensive endeavor for any local male looking to participate. You know half the local women aren't looking for the sex, they're just thinking about the opportunity for more gifts and branded handbags. Informal high-end prostitution is what it will be.

Oh man, the thread on hardware zone about this is pretty funny. I liek this guy's post:

I see this website as a helpful guide.
Many people are tired of their old cars, but they don't know what is out there that will suit them better.
Some just want to continue driving their old cars, but occassionally weekends rent one Porsche or lambo for some hard driving.

Some just want a second opinion, that their existing cars are just as good as what others are driving.

Some want to look for new cars, so need to arrange for many different test drives to evaluate the other cars potentials again the current old Jalopny.

Some like me, actually got no car, but pretended to have a old car, and go around test drives new cars for fun and laughter peace and joy.

AM works in sex deprived countries like Australia quite well I believe... (where the male/female sex war has led to constant antagonism - AM cuts around that). I don't really see it taking off here. There are thousands of outlets here apart from dangerously married women and of course there's Jakarta/Bangkok just a short flight away.

All women are disease vectors anyways.... (and some men).

I saw something about this in the newspaper and apparently the government (and others) don't want the web site here because they think Sg should promote family values and this could tear families a part. Politicians and gvt officials seem like they're just trying to make themselves look good.

If they really want to promote family values, then address prostitution. Make it illegal for married people to buy sex and illegal for married people to work as hookers. Even if the customers and workers aren't married, they learn that people are objects and don't need to be respected. Better yet, shut down Orchard Towers and do street prostitution stings and arrest offenders. Nothing "family" about prostitution, but yet it's totally accepted here.

I'm sure people will disagree. One of the reasons for legal prostitution being supported is that people believe it cuts down on rape, but that's not the case.

Bedok - I actually prefer Singapore's approach to prostitution over Australia or the US approach of criminalizing it . (Generally - I have some issues with certain specifics in Singapore). I find the biggest issue with prostitution in the west is the organized crime element that it becomes part of (same with drugs) and that's one thing Singapore seems good at controlling.

So maybe Singapore ladies can catch up with Japanese women who, even with no jobs, can somehow afford to stay current with Louis Vuitton... :devil:

Or, that there is nothing about it that justifies it being illegal unless you believe arbitrary religious beliefs should be interpreted and applied as laws.
