First sex in front of mama and daddy? This is what they do!
There are many strange traditions in various parts of the world. This family from Singapore practices one of the oddest. Learn what the whole family does on the first wedding night.
For most of us sex is a private experience, especially the first one. That is not what this family believes! 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.
While the young couple is making love, they sit or stand there and watch them carefully. Some of the older members may even intrude into the process and guide the young and inexperienced youths through it.
The photo is real and it was taken by the uncle of the newly married boy. You can find at least 5 other people present at the scene. Here is what the uncle says:
“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.”
They also say such an act is not the first one in their family. It has taken place before. Here is what he has to say:
“I felt 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.”
The finishing phrase on this first sex will knock you off your feet!
“I snapped the photo right at the moment before he came, and it was truly a beautiful scene.”
