Is going to Orchard Towers or a KTV lounge considered cheating?
A friend recently posed this interesting question to me and it certainly got us to thinking. On the surface, it seems like a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question, but if one digs deeper into the issue, you will realise that this moral dilemma of going to Orchard Towers or a KTV lounge is certainly one that can't be easily resolved.
In case you are unaware, Orchard Towers is supposedly renowned for its 'four floors of whores’, which houses numerous dodgy clubs, bars and massage parlours.
While Orchard Towers is relatively ‘clean’ during the daytime, it allegedly becomes a red light district at night once the ‘four floors of whores’ open for business.
KTV lounges can be found all over Singapore and the shady KTV lounges can often be found in the Jalan Besar area, although there are many other shady KTV lounges in other parts of Singapore too.
As often seen on local drama serials, these shady KTV lounges primarily cater to businessmen who lock themselves in a room with an escort who accompanies them, and often this leads to the businessman paying for sex or other special services.

It is important to remember that for the sake of this argument, it shall be assumed that the men going to Orchard Towers or a KTV lounge do not actually engage in sexual activities with the escorts.
Why visiting Orchard Towers is not considered cheating
Firstly, many men are forced to visit such places for various reasons, such as business, or when they get peer pressured into going to Orchard Towers or a KTV lounge during a night out with their male friends.
Trust is an important factor in any relationship and screaming at your husband despite the fact that he was compelled to go to such places only makes matters worse.
