SEX WHEN YOU’RE LIV­ING WITH MOM AND DAD

EVER SO OF­TEN, THE URGE TO GET IT ON IS UN­CON­TROL­LABLE. BUT WHAT IF YOU’RE LIV­ING WITH YOUR PAR­ENTS? YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO LEARN A THING OR TWO FROM THESE WOMEN WHO SHARE HOW THEY FOUND THE TIME AND SPACE FOR SEX.

Men's Health (Singapore) - - ON THE COVER -

It’s not just about muf­fling the moans.

If I’m in the mood for sex while the fam­ily is watch­ing TV, I’ll ca­su­ally ask my hus­band if he can help me with some­thing on my lap­top. That’s my se­cret phrase for ‘I want you now!’” – Gina*, 34, en­tre­pre­neur

“With our par­ents in the next room, we try to keep it down. We’ve found that the ‘qui­etest’ po­si­tion for sex is to do it side­ways. You don’t move as much in this po­si­tion so there’s barely any noise, yet you’re al­most al­ways guar­an­teed an or­gasm.” – Diana*, 30, PR ex­ec­u­tive

“I can get quite vo­cal when hav­ing sex. If my par­ents are home while I’m at it with my man, I just bite on a pil­low to drown out the moans.” – Deb­o­rah*, 32, hos­pi­tal­ity man­ager

MY HUS­BAND JUST GIVES ME A LOOK. WHEN HE CATCHES MY EYE, HE RAISES HIS EYE­BROWS SLIGHTLY, AS IF TO SAY, ‘SO, ARE YOU UP FOR IT?’. THAT’S MY SIG­NAL THAT HE’S FEEL­ING FRISKY.

“About three or four times a month, we send my par­entsin-law out so we can have the whole apart­ment to our­selves. My hus­band gives them money for shop­ping or buys them movie tick­ets, drives them to Or­chard Road and then picks them up when they’re done. While they are out, we try to make the most of those few pre­cious hours of pri­vacy.” – Jen­nifer Goh, 32, public­ity ex­ec­u­tive “We have an old bed that creaks at the slight­est move­ment, so hav­ing sex on it is out of the ques­tion. Thank­fully, Hubby and I have an en-suite bath­room, so we usu­ally do it in the shower stand­ing up.” – Teresa*, 30, writer “My hus­band just gives me a look. When he catches my eye, he raises his eye­brows slightly, as if to say, ‘So, are you up for it?’. That’s my sig­nal that he’s feel­ing frisky.” – Amanda*, 38, sales man­ager “Luck­ily for us, my par­ents-in­law turn up the vol­ume re­ally high when they’re watch­ing TV. The flat is small, so my hus­band and I have to wait till his folks set­tle in front of the tele­vi­sion be­fore we can have sex, which is usu­ally be­tween 8pm and 11pm. But once the TV is on, you could play the drums right next to them and they wouldn’t know.” – Leanne Chua, 34, self-em­ployed “My man and I sleep on a worn sofa bed in my par­ents’ spare room. When we feel like hav­ing sex, we lay out an un­used yoga mat, spread a cou­ple of thick tow­els over it and just go for it. There’s no way we can have sex on the sofa bed be­cause it has old creaky coils.” – Tanya*, 33, mu­si­cian “While the fam­ily’s watch­ing TV to­gether, I’ll in­con­spic­u­ously squeeze my hubby’s thigh. If he’s feel­ing up for sex, he’ll put his hand over mine and give it a squeeze.” – Wendy*, 32, ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant
