Mens Health

SINGAPORE men are concerned about getting older, and, more importantly, about what can be done to boost their sexual health.

According to a survey conducted by singaporemen.com.sg – a health-education portal for men spearheaded by pharmaceuticals company Bayer Healthcare – 70 per cent of respondents view sex as “a vital indicator of their health and well-being”.

The online survey polled 400 Singaporean men between the ages of 45 and 64, and half of them rated “maintaining a healthy sex life with their spouse” as important a way of maintaining overall health as limiting alcohol intake and managing stress.

However, 63 per cent said they “no longer have the same energy for sex as they used to and are concerned about the decline in sexual fitness as they grow older”.

The website could prove a welcome resource for men here – although only 15 per cent of respondents would prefer to turn to the Internet for health answers.

Said Dr Michael Wong, president of the Singapore Urological Association: “Men need to forward and discuss their prostate, sexual and heart issues…so they can age more gracefully.”

The association supports the website, along with the Singapore Society for Men’s Health and the Health Promotion Board.
