There are very many traditions in the world but of all the practices I have seen or heard about, this appears to be the weirdest! Love-making, I believe, should be a very intimate thing between two lovers. However, a weird Singaporean family believes otherwise.
The family has this weird tradition of witnessing the first love-making session between a newly wed groom and his wife. They think the first act is special and very important. So, the whole family gathers up on the first wedding night to be present in the bedroom.
Singapore’s social media was captivated by this unusual story concerning a weird Singaporean family living in Woodlands New Town. A photo was posted by a member of the family earlier this week, and it has since gone viral, receiving thousands of comments from members of the public.
The image shows the couple, naked in bed and in the middle of intercourse, while family members crowded around the bed watching on his ‘performance’.
The picture also clearly shows the man’s mom and sister sitting on the edge of the bed to supposedly guide him through the process. The intimate moment was captured by the man’s uncle, who revealed it was a family tradition that has been passed down through generation.
In a post accompanying the explicit photo the uncle wrote:
“While most people may consider it odd, for our family there is nothing more proud than celebrating a son, brother or nephew having sex for the first time. We see it as the last step on the long journey to adulthood, and it’s also a special chance to witness the moment that a new life is formed”.
The uncle also explained that he’d also had his family present to witness his first intercourse.
“I felt less nervous having my family there to accompany me, and also give me guidance on how to proceed. At first I had trouble entering my girlfriend, but my mother suggested I take things more slowly and relax, and I was able to eventually slip it in.”
He concluded his short narrative by saying: “I snapped the photo right at the moment before he came, and it was truly a beautiful scene.”
Citizens of Singapore who came across the post commented how unnatural and obscene it was. One person made a comment saying:
“Doesn’t matter if it’s family ‘tradition’ or not. That’s just plain weird. Sex is something that should be behind closed doors, without your parents and siblings observing”.
“I don’t know about you but I’m leaving the internet for awhile now”.
“It’s quite disgusting that such a private act must be witnessed by the man’s who family.”
