PETALING JAYA - Malaysians are more satisfied in bed compared to their neighbours across the Causeway.
A Durex Sexual Well-Being Global Survey found that Malaysians were also doing well in making their partners happy, with 89 per cent of men and 81 per cent of women saying their partners were good at giving them sexual pleasure.
All was not well in Singapore, according to the survey, with only 54 per cent of men and 62 per cent of women saying their partners were giving them pleasurable sex.
"Singapore is amongst the countries in Asia having the second lowest scores in this area," Durex said in a statement yesterday.
Nine out of 10 Malaysian women (89 per cent) agreed that sex brought them emotionally closer to their partners.
"The pleasant surprise is that Malaysian men seem to be succeeding in getting in touch with their softer sides, as 88 per cent of Malaysian women say they feel loved during sex," said Durex.
Reckitt Benckiser Malaysia and Singapore marketing director Nikhilesh Kalra said sexual well-being was a balance of physical, emotional and sociological factors.
The survey, commissioned by Durex, was conducted to gain global consumer insights into sexual attitudes and behaviours.
It was conducted in 36 countries with a total of 29,003 people aged 18 and above between Sept 6 and Oct 3 last year.
The Malaysian results have a base of 506 participants: 241 men and 265 women.
