ave you ever chanced upon a sexualact occurring in NTU? I think I have. I woke up early in the morning once andhad to go for a leak. Upon reaching the toilet,I saw two pairs of slippers outside a cubicleand the washroom went silent. Did that couplehave any morals? I hope they did, even thoughthey blatantly gave in to their sexual urges inpublic. Perhaps their morals rested in the factthat they cleaned up after they were done, which is all we can really ask for.I went around asking students if they hadseen any sexual activities taking place, as well as their views of sex in school, and I met Wayne Tan from the Wee Kim Wee Schoolof Communication Studies who told me, “Ithink it’s a private issue for people and notreally something we should be meddlingfreely in, so I do not see anything wrong with
private spaces.” Wayne also expresses that hehas not personally seen any such occurrencesother than hearing the ever present rumors.Could this be due to the fact that Wayne is notstaying in a hall? Does this mean the generalconsensus is that sex can only occur within

Perhaps it is themountain of workload that leads us to theseendeavors or simply raging hormones. But onething remains certain: those that partake in itdo enjoy sex. Although we might constantly deny, deny anddeny it, sex has become a necessity in times where isolation and stress come from every

or the curious among us, someone has atleast done a survey somewhere! This wastaken in Wellesley College in the US, andthe results graph shown here speaks for itself.If we take this to be in some way representativeof how things are in NTU…

said. An online respondent tried to explain. ‘Breakit down like this: creativity and sexuality arehighly correlated. So those who gravitatetoward “softer” sciences (and it’s all science)e.g. English, Art, Film, etc., also gravitatetoward sexual people. Sex ensues. Celibacy, on

Some HSS majorscan clock 20AUs on 15 hours of curriculumtime a week. That leaves you plenty of time forother things. Or if you’re a foreign student, whoneeds no CCA or Hall activities and spends the

e’re all needy students. It doesn’t matter whether you pretend to be decent or don’thave desires at all. At one point in time, you’re going to feel it in you and you’ll think“DAMN! If only I know of a place where we could do it!” Well we’re going to look at thepossible places where you could bring your other half and have relative privacy (notwithstandingpassersby unwittingly interrupting you). Here is the list we’ve compiled for you to peruse in yourown privacy…
I’ve not been to every single handicapped toiletin school, and the one that I wanted to go checkout at the Nanyang Auditorium was locked ona Sunday night. Yet I chanced upon this toiletin EEE block, and I found it the best of thelot so far. A large toilet with just one cubicleand 1 basin? You can even lock the main doorif you’re paranoid about security. It was pretty clean and should serve its purpose very well.

to indulge in illicit activities.
Truly, people seem to be doing everythingbut listen to lectures in NTU’s prized LectureTheatres. Sleeping is a common, universally acknowledged activity, and so seems to beeating, drinking, and bumming around. Another activity that has taken to toppingthe chart is, yes, making out. Maybe notthe most convenient place to indulge, youmay say, with the risk of a large number of students, or, god forbid, a professor, bargingin. However, with the added advantage of airconditioners, and stairs to sit on and snog,lecture theatres have become the new sacredplace for most lovebirds.
Halls of Residence
Forget lecture theatres, dark secludedcorridors, or handicapped toilets. The mostconvenient and private place to vent out thosepent up feelings is your very own hall room.Not only is it safe, but it comes complete witha bed! What more could one ask for?Hall resident Abha Apte says, “People mightas well get as much action as they can now asthey probably won’t get rooms next year.” And with that being the popular opinion, Ithink it’s safe to say that hall rooms pretty much top the list of best make out spots inNTU. As romantic as the ADM building may be, it doesn’t give you the kind of privacy youneed when indulging in such acts of ‘love’. And even if you don’t live in hall, there’salways that option of ‘borrowing’ a room...right?
