I am going to visit Singapore, and definitely it's wonderful sauna scene. Just one question: are flip flop (slipper) allowed in these premises? I have always wear flipflop while I am in any sauna to prevent slipping and other unwanted substances from sticking to my sole.

1. 380 new cases of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections were reported among Singapore residents in the first 10 months (January – October) of 2015. Of these, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has performed further analysis for 144 cases reported within the first 6 months (January – June) of 2015.
2. In summary:
(i) 97% were male.
(ii) More than half (54%) were aged 30 to 49 years.
(iii) About 39% already had late-stage HIV infection when they were diagnosed. This is lower than the proportion of 49% last year.
3. Sexual intercourse remains the main mode of HIV transmission. Almost all (98%) of the 144 cases acquired the infection through sexual intercourse. Heterosexual transmission accounted for 38% of these cases while 50% were from homosexual transmission and 10% were from bisexual transmission.
4. About 42% of the newly reported cases were detected by HIV tests done in the course of medical care provisioning. Another 30% were detected during routine programmatic HIV screening while 20% were detected through voluntary HIV screening. The rest were detected through other types of screening. When differentiated by sexual transmission, a higher proportion of homosexuals (36%) had their HIV infection detected via voluntary screening compared to heterosexuals (4%).

Reason anyone even go to such a place:
#1 they have HIV/STD and want to spread it
#3 emotional breakdown/stress
#4 cheap and easy sex
Outside the place might look and sound decent but at the end it is no different from straight men soliciting prostitutes.
