Live sex charts
Some comparatively egalitarian countries, like Spain, score fairly well, while others, like the US and Canada, score poorly.Likewise, some nations with obviously larger gender inequalities in terms of social status and employment, like India, do better, while Thailand does poorly.For reports designed principally with Durex's corporate interests in mind, they're pretty well done.The data also reveals a lot of interesting things about how much people in different countries enjoy sex, when they tend to do it, and gender equality (or the lack thereof) in sexual enjoyment. There are a few surprises on the global excitement map.Even among the worst performers in Durex's surveys, Japan stands out.The below chart shows the 6 countries in the world where less than 40 percent of people report being "very or fully satisfied" with their sex lives.Spain, for instance, might have lower levels of sexual excitement, somewhere down near France or Britain's level, if it weren't so damn self-respecting.Mexico's super-high respect rate may explain its edge over some other highly excited countries.
Mexico and Nigeria beat almost everywhere else by a hefty margin.
Unsurprisingly, the figure for men (61 percent) is 28 points higher than the equivalent for women (33 percent).
What is interesting is how that gap varies by country.
The next lowest country, somewhat surprisingly the United States, reports a weekly 53 percent sex rate (though, this isn't the only indication of sexual satisfaction: 76 percent of Italians are having sex weekly, and they're still near the bottom of the satisfaction pack).
It's not surprising that the Japanese are having infrequent, unsatisfying sex.
