Most people get excited when they go to the cinema to watch movies. Who can blame them? It’s always a thrilling outing. Unfortunately, one couple apparently got a little too excited while watching a show.
TikTok user @Jiaxiv recently took to the platform to complain about her cinema experience. According to the TikToker, she allegedly discovered a condom left behind on her seat by a couple in Shaw Theatres Lido in Singapore.
The video, uploaded on 17th December, merely showed the TikToker smiling wryly at the camera with music in the background. A text in the video read: “Hello (to) the couple who decided to f**k in Shaw Lido Cinema 5. Thank you for leaving the condom souvenir for me to sit on.”
Jiaxiv described it as “the most traumatising moment of (her) entire life“. Who can blame her? It certainly isn’t pleasant to realise people were doing the hanky-panky on the seat you’re sitting on. According to China Press, the video accumulated over 279,000 likes and 507 comments in 4 days. However, at the time of writing, the video has already been privated.
Shaw Theatre has responded to media enquiries, stating they prioritise cleanliness and hygiene. This priority is of utmost importance, especially with the ongoing epidemic. Shaw Theatre, as reported by China Press, claimed they have checked with the staff and cleaners of the cinema but received no complaints or feedback about the incident.
Netizens are doubtful about the incident as many feel she is doing it for clout. One questioned how someone could have sex in the cinema without anyone realising it. Others were curious as to why the cinema hadn’t cleaned or sanitised the hall between sessions.
Well, it may be an unpleasant surprise, but at least they practiced safe sex! However, we do discourage having sex in public areas. Please keep it in your pants and save it for your bedroom.
