Articles like this are always good for traffic but they also make me ask a number of questions such as why do we really care about this. Granted the sponsor of the survey is a manufacturer of prophylactics, but I still chuckle when I see such things.
What does this mean and what do we learn about ourselves and others. I am sure that there is a suitable explanation, an argument for why this is significant but I am too tired to figure it out.
“SINGAPORE (AFP) – Stressed-out Asians have the least active sex lives globally with nine countries and territories from the region making up the bottom ten in terms of love-making, condom maker Durex said.
Japan was bottom of the list of 41 countries and territories covered by this year’s Durex survey.
Japanese had sex an average of 45 times annually, less than half the global average of 103 and far behind that of Greece which topped the poll with 138 romps a year.
In second place behind Greece was Croatia with 134 times a year, followed by Serbia and Montenegro at 128 times.
Britons were more fired up than the Americans, having sex 118 times a year compared with 113 for the United States, but the French were more amorous still with 120.
Holland’s 115 love-making sessions a year tied with Poland, while Australians had sex an average 108 times.
Singaporeans ranked second-last with 73.
Indians (75), Indonesians (77), Hong Kong residents (78), Malaysians (83), Vietnamese (87), Taiwanese (88) and China (96 times a year) were the other Asians ranked as having the lowest libido.
The Swedes were the only non-Asians in the bottom ten, with 92 love-making sessions a year.
The Thais had sex an average 97 times a year.”
