Undersexed men of the world, unite
You have nothing to lose but your woodies. Overheard at The Washington Note (who says Mr. Clemons only cares about politics?): this international sex survey by the good folks at Durex. A few moist facts for your Sunday brunch: The French claim to have the most sex (on average, 137 times per year), while the Japanese are having the least (46). Yet, knowing the Japanese national propensity for overdoing it, each of those 46 episodes no doubt involved multiple partners, mirrored ceilings, and toys so high-tech the rest of us can only watch Futurama and dream. The British spend the most time on foreplay (22.5 minutes). Thais spend the least (11.5 minutes). Americans match the international average (19.7 minutes). And I ask: why so little time on foreplay? Even the 16- to 20-year-old cohort spent, on average, a measly 21.6 minutes on foreplay. What's wrong with kids today? Italians are the most orgasmic (61%), Chinese the least (19%). Hope that's not genetic. 17% of men claim to have faked an orgasm. Huh? The Chinese have had the most sexual partners (19.3), Vietnamese the least (2.5), with the great melting pot, the American satan, once again matching the international average (10.3). Macedonians lead the world in spankings (42%), followed closely by the US of A (41%). I'll let you folks search for more tidbits. I've already tried trotting out the stats for Karen, but the wife? Meh. She's unimpressed by their statistical techniques. (Actually, what she said was, "Everyone lies on those things.") D.
