Singapore: No lesbian sex and bondage on our TV please

Starhub Cable Vision (SCV) has been fined S$10,000 for airing a lesbian sex and bondage scene in an episode of Cheaters. From Pink News:
The Singapore Development Authority deemed the television show “sexually suggestive and offensive to good taste and decency”.

Despite being “pixelated” or perhaps because it was, AFP reports that the authority believed the women were engaging in “unnatural sex acts”.

According to the regulators it “ failed to comply with guidelines which disallow the promotion, justification and glamourisation of lesbian lifestyles and their explicit depictions”

The programme, named Cheaters was aired across traditionally repressive nations in Asia such as India, China and Indonesia with no problems.
What?! No more lesbian sex and bondage on SCV? Dang! Anyway this Cheaters show does sound interesting. In Cheaters, suspicious lovers call on the show to expose their play-away partners, leading to some priceless moments of confrontation as hidden cameras expose the truth. It is on SCV's new Zone Reality Channel (Ch 83) part of the Family Plus Channel Tier. Too bad I'm not subscribed to Family Plus.
