Before this recent barrage of news on snatch thieves and robbery, there was renewed interest in the local media on rape and baby abandonment cases.
While I think getting raped is no fun, I do not consider myself worthy enough to educate the masses on rape prevention. And while I think that some girls look most unflattering in tight-fitting apparel that lack cloth material, it does not mean they are easy targets for rape; it means they have an appalling fashion sense. I can tell you that rapists could rape even 80-year old grandmothers, so forget the crap religious, highly conservative people telling you that it was brought on by yourself.

What I am trying to achieve here is to hopefully through general knowledge, personal and non-personal experiences, logical and sensible advise (ahem) bring more awareness about this thing called sex. Not to be confused with love, but that is another story.
Why this honourable decision, O mighty Suanie?
Sex education in Malaysia is almost non-existent. Speaking from my school days, the first official education on sex was when you were 15 – Form 3, Sains Bab 1. Then after that, nothing unless you chose Science stream and took biology class. The information offered in the pitiful first chapter of our Form 3 science textbook came with some diagrams and was mostly about the reproductive organs. General facts, facts and more facts but not enough discussion on the birds and bees coming together.
Fuck the pun.
I am not a doctor. I am not a psychologist. I am not Samantha Jones.
I am Suanie.
And Suanie knows… things.
And I am offering all this information free-of-charge. Be glad.
Many Malaysians are uncomfortable with the sex topic. Then there are the extremely pious ones, religion-wise who brought their kids up on stringent rules then cry foul when their offspring seemingly out of nowhere sprout more offspring.
Then there are the cultural hold backs. My mom has been a teacher all her life, yet she thinks that sex education for her Standard 6 pupils (12 years old) is not recommended. Too much information might scar them, she reasoned. Yes but no information would scar them even more.
Through ‘For Fuck Sake’ I will be touching topics on general sex education then proceed to sexual enjoyment and everything else in between.
If you heard the stories of girls just lying on their backs staring at the ceilings as often as I had, you too would want to jolt them to their senses.
But that’s just me. I don’t think of sex as a relationship or marriage obligation. I think of it more along the lines of responsibility, enjoyment and awakening.
Any names I would be mentioning would have been changed for anonymity. I decided I want to be this liberal but I understand if other people do not.
In case you are wondering, I am pro-choice. And seeing homosexuals kiss in public is not disturbing to me. I approve of gay marriage. I am all for legalised prostitution. If you hate your dick and wish to have boobs, go ahead.
I do not approve of non-consensual sex (it is called rape, people), incest (and you wonder why the Amish folks are weird) and maybe a long line of other stuff that you would maybe discover. I do not approve of 12 year old girls willingly trading their bodies for branded clothes.
But that’s Suanie.
And Suanie rocks.
