What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex - Sold Out On Amazon
The book entitled “What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex” has become a best-seller, and has actually sold out on Amazon.
So just what topics are covered in the book? – Absolutely nothing! It is 200-pages of blank pages… and sells for almost S$10.
It was supposed to originally be a novelty gift, but in the UK it has become very fashionable among students to use as a notebook.
University of Nottingham student Jess Lloyd, told the UK’s Daily Telegraph, “I bought a copy for my mate as a joke and he started using it as a notepad for lectures… Now everyone seems to have one. It’s started a real craze on campus.”
According to the book’s author, Oxford University graduate Sheridan Simove, “After many years of hard work I finally realised that men think of absolutely nothing apart from sex. It was a shocking conclusion and I realised that the world needed to be informed of my findings.”
Simove’s next research project is a PhD on the subject of what women think apart from sex… I’m guessing this one will actually be full of text and the thickness of an encyclopedia!!
I’m not prudish enough to think that the latest adult game for Nintendo Wii and Playstation that is due for release next month should be banned. In fact, I’m all for partners engaging in whatever games they feel fit to improve their lives and add a bit of spice to their relationships.
However, the Independent body in Europe that has given the ok for a 12+ certificate rating must have rocks in their head! It is no wonder that some concerned parents are outraged just by watching the promotional trailer by software giant, Ubisoft. The British parents allege that it “promotes orgies and lesbian sex to kids as young as 12″.
The trailer available on YouTube that promotes the game, “We Dare” features two couples following on-screen instructions from their game console… The girls in the ad are seen with the Wii remote sitting suggestively between their lips. The couples then hide the “Wiimote” inside their clothes while the others spank their bums which in turn controls one of the characters on the screen.
There is a couple of versions of the trailer, but there is no doubting that they are suggesting couples play the game together during a ’swinging’ kind of party and partner swapping.
According to a spokeswoman for French makers Ubisoft: “We Dare is intended for an adult audience… the age rating was set by an independent European panel.”
We’ve seen it many times before – but when it comes with horrifying pictures, it’s still difficult to comprehend.
As I’ve written in other articles, The United Arab Emirates is conservative and a predominately Muslim population. This often means that many expatriates fall into the trap of ‘misbehaving’ by local standards… with sometimes dire consequences.
In the latest crime to be reported out of Dubai in Sharjah, an unmarried foreign couple have been found guilty by a sharia court after admitting to having sex – and because both parties are Muslim, they were sentenced to the harshest penalty – 100 lashes and deportation (non-Muslims would most likely be jailed and deported).
The unidentified couple – a Bangladeshi man, known only as S.M. in court documents and his girlfriend, Filipina maid known as N.M. – were arrested by police when the house owner (and maid’s employer) made a report after she saw the man leaving the home.
The lovers admitted to having unlawful sex several times at the house owned by the maid’s sponsor.
The man has already undergone his punishment, and has suffered welts on his back and legs that will most probably leave permanent scarring… but wait, that’s not all!! – because he entered the house of the sponsor illegally, he is also facing a further sentence of one year in prison.
Once again, my sense of humour has gotten the better of me. This is absolutely hilarious and it’s something that the operator of the large display screen at the Shahjalal International Airport in Bangladesh can have a laugh about and tell his kids – that is, once he gets out of jail!!
The unfortunate operator was imprisoned immediately for airing a pornographic movie for all travellers and their friends to see.
The patrons of the airport were apparently shocked when they looked up and saw the sexually explicit adult movie playing… for a full five minutes!!
(Now that’s something I’ve not seen at Changi Terminal 2 before)
It’s important to note that Bangladesh is a very conservative Muslim country, where even just talk of sex is taboo.
The authorities have launched an investigation after the show was aired, in an attempt to determine if there was any criminal intent involved.
The display screen usually runs recordings of documentaries about the culture and geography of Bangladesh – it seems like in this instance they may have confused the local culture with that of a more liberal European country… either that, or this is the mother of all Bangladeshi practical jokes!!
According to Magistrate, Siddiqa Akhter, “The operator has been jailed instantly for two months. We have also summoned the owners of the cable firm to investigate the incident.”

Well I can certainly tell you, dear reader - life is about as busy as it gets right now!! Don't misunderstand me - I am not complaining, just perhaps making excuses why I'm so far behind with my blogging. When you mix a very busy day job and career with outside activities such as press appearances and media interviews, along with the wonderfu […]

Health authorities in Canada have come up with a campaign to curb 'social smoking', by comparing the smell of cigarette smoke to flatulance. The key message from the quite clever Ontario 'Quit the Denial' campaign, is "Social smoking is as ridiculous as social farting". 'Just because I fart every now-and-then doesn' […]
I'm just back in town after a month of travelling with very little access to internet. So, I couldn't resist writing my first blog article after the short hiatus by exposing a couple of the worst efforts of parenting that have been reported in recent times. Firstly, there is the news of a 38-year old mother from Utah (Robin Willette Rumsey), w […]
Before I make the observation below, let me state extremely clearly that as a permanent resident of Singapore I absolutely WILL NOT even try to enter the debate on the Singapore Government's Population White Paper. Not only would doing so be completely inappropriate as it would be out of place, but I would rather do without the online harrassment, baggi […]
Many of my faithful long-term readers and followers would most probably recall an article that I wrote back in late 2009, about an extremely talented singer / songwriter by the name of Andrew Chen. Well let’s now move the clock forward to January, 2013 and having rebranded himself as ‘Dru Chen’ he has really found his groove and developed into THE mos […]
In 1979, the Prime Minister of Singapore at the time, Mr Lee Kuan Yew launched The Speak Mandarin Campaign (SMC). The intention of the campaign was to "transform a deeply entrenched social-linguistic habit of Chinese Singaporeans who were long used to the speaking of dialects". The objectives of the campaign were as follows: 1. To simplify the […]
Now I'm not trying to be a smart-a** here... I am sincerely bewildered by this seemingly strange process to preview a new property development in Singapore. Also, I'm truly hoping that an estate agent or property developer could enlighten me as to the reasons why. I've come across this a few times now - both in person when showing intere […]
I've heard of 'cat-burglars', but a 'cat-smuggler'? - Well, I'll be... A seemingly stray cat is the latest perpetrator in a prison smuggling attempt. Guards at a prison in northeastern Brazil thought there was something suspicious about the little white kitty - perhaps it was something to do with all of the contraband strappe […]
Now for those old enough to remember, Canadian singer Alanis Morissette was brought to account many years ago when people questioned the lyrics of her hit song, “Isn't It Ironic” – many of us thought that the various examples she gave were more those of bad luck as opposed to true irony. For example, “…isn't it ironic... don't you think. It […]
