Sex Lives Around The World - 8 Maps & Charts [Pic]

Submitted by: kitteh9lives 1 year ago


People around the world are having sex. Right now. These maps and charts tell you how they"re doing it.

The data comes from two surveys done by Durex, the condom folks. Their Sexual Wellbeing Survey (from 2007/2008) and Face of Global Sex (2012) are methodologically rigorous. A polling firm, Harris Interactive, set up large sample size online polls designed to capture a representative sample of heterosexual sex-havers from a number of countries around the world.

Here"s a few points that stand out:

1. People have more exciting sex in Nigeria and Mexico
2. People in Japan are really unhappy with their sex lives
3. The orgasm gap between genders varies by country
4. Turkey has an alarmingly high STI rate
5. People in Asia tend to be pretty old when they lose their virginity, by global standards
6. The French and Indians have short sex, while Nigerians and Greeks take their time

So how does your country rank?




















Where people have the best sex, the worst sex, and the most STIs. The who, what, where, and why people get it on.

All these things are skewed and hard to accurately put. Will depend how truthful some countries generally are or what they consider "exciting is" Saudi arabia doing anal is exciting, in UK America probably not soo much

The Hong Kong figures are skewed because they assume no gender difference.

Women are less bothered about sex.
Men get all theirs from mainland chinese women.

Indeed Beternal! Gotta love our European stereotypes. I remember seeign a poster once which said something like:

"HEAVEN is where the lovers are Italian, the police are British, the chefs are French, and the whole thing`s organised by the Swiss.

HELL is where the lovers are Swiss, the police are German, the chefs are British, and the whole thing`s organised by the Italians".

Truth.

"You need to pace yourself, man! 30 minutes is a breeze if you pace yourself."

I can stand only having sex so long. 20 minutes is my high point. Honestly speaking it`s usually only 10-12 minutes of actual sex. Girls seem to be ok with that. I make up for it other ways.

Something`s up with Mexico here. They`re either sexual geniuses, or they`re lying.

Wow, shows how rumour and reputation are greatly exaggerated!

French men have a reputation for being great lovers but have the least exciting sex, the least satisfying sex and the shortest sex!

Next thing you know Germany will be the funniest country and England will have the best food!

I don`t believe the intercourse duration stat at all. If I go for 15, 20, or 30 minutes - the girl is usually like, "wow, that rarely happens". There are an inordinate amount of 3 minuters out there.
