80 per cent of Malaysian women lack sexual desire

SI-LO n. dead! (a Hokkien expression of astonishment! Pronounced see-low)

About time that Malaysian New Straits Times receives the Sisuahlai treatment. Their crime? For publishing this article: Marriage? No Way! 80 per cent of Malaysian women will wait after 30, says survey.

A survey of 200 women professionals by the University of Malaya’s Centre for Family Development (UMCFD) showed that 80 per cent of them, between the ages of 25 and 40, prefer to marry after 30 or not at all.

The finding was hardly surprising given the competitive nature of professionals, but the surprising finding was what some experts had to say about this.

UMCFD director Professor Dr Abdul Rahim Abdul Rashid said:
Our survey shows that sexual desire in professional women is rather low.
What? How did he come to that conclusion? Was it a sex survey?

Unembarrassed, oblivious, the Prof went on:

As everyone knows, there are more women in institutions of higher learning than men. So naturally there are fewer professional men than women, which is another problem. The practical thing would seem to be to allow professional men to marry more than one, but this would definitely not be a good solution.

I know I have some difficulty with my hearing sometimes, but what? Did Prof really say "The practical thing would seem to be to allow professional men to marry more than one"?

At this point, I could not bear to read any further.

But for the sake of this blog, I bit the bullet and read on...

Another expert offered his reasons. He was determined not to be out-done by Prof Rahim.

Hushim Salleh, a University Malaya lecturer (aka lecturer of Pseudo-reasoning and Irony) and counsellor, provided the following inspirational piece:

Women were not interested in marrying because "men of quality" were lacking in the country.

Sisuahlai's jaw is now very close to the floor (ok, he has a long jaw to begin with). I took a long deep breath and read on:

Many men now are involved in drugs and are gay or soft. I do marriage counselling and 80 women have registered with me to help them find husbands, but only three men registered to find wives. Parents must bring up their male children properly and ensure they did not engage in "disruptive gender activities.

Gasp! Sisuahlai died.

NST, are you competing with The Star for the Malaysian (Nonsense) Enquirer title?
