Americans Are Behind In The Bedroom!

Sat Dec 06, 2008 2:00 am

http://www.suntimes.com/lifestyles/h.../1313875,CST-NWS-sexiest04.article

So who is getting it on? I think this will be my new years resolution!!

Excerpt

"Turns out Greece's rich ancient history isn't the only thing that its people have to be proud of.

Greeks have more sex than anyone else in the world, while Americans rank third-lowest, according to a survey of 26 countries done by Durex condom company.
Americans get it on a measly 85 times a year, well below the worldwide average of 103 times. And less than half of Americans describe their sex life as fully satisfying."

85 per year? Damn, that sucks. I'm also doing my part to raise the average then, nothing like having a girlfriend ready to get it on 24/7 no matter where the location!  biggrin

Well watch out now lol. But I wonder about us Americans. What is it with America and sex. Everyone here goes mad crazy when sex comes out. It's our ancestors fault somehow!!

Perhaps if more Americans were having more fun in their own bedrooms, they'd be less concerned about what other Americans are doing in their bedrooms.

Japan's further down the list than the US and nobody here gives a damn what anybody else is doing. It's live and let live - the only way sex doesn't get talked about in public, as society here prefers it. I think the real problem is that our fellow Americans are just too frackin' nosy.

(maybe they'll come up with an "adult" game for Wii  biggrin  )

85 seems a bit low. I average 2 - 3 times/week with my sweetheart so I guess we are doing out part to bring up the numbers LOL!

61 percent of Swedish women reported having an orgasm the last time they had sex, according to the Durex survey.

The country is infested with prudes and the dark shadows of political correctness are marching across the country, so it's no surprise here  

When I was with my ex we went at it almost daily. Of course, she's now raising the average with some other guy

I certainly wasn't the least bit suprised. If that study found we were on the same sexual level as Saudi Arabia or Iran or something, I wouldn't even be surprised. Oral sex is STILL illegal in something like 15 states!!

WEAK  Wink I don't know about the rest of you, but with my ex, we would do it 2-3 times a DAY. Come on people!

Of course, I'm single now and haven't done it in a few weeks, so I guess I can't talk too much crap.

That is absurd! I was making the average while I was an hour plane ride away from my GF. Actually we were probably well above average even with that "comute" if you will.

Mind you - It would be a matter of coming home on weekends (or her coming up to see me) and doing it at the very least 2 if not 3,4 and even maybe sometimes 5 times a day. I think people who only get it on to it 1-2 times a week need to step it up!

Considering my husband is also one of those "online models" that does "special perfomances" for people online, HE is probably doing that average on his own LOL! I have an extremely heavy work schedule so we don't even see each other all the time.  Sad

What's that have to do with men, or other women for that matter? They'd probably be getting their rocks off if all the men in Sweden went to Norway for the weekend.

Its all myth ( Another Greek word ) really. I have been with Greeks that are crap in bed and Americans that certainly represented their country well. lol....Its all down to individuals. The Italian stereotype is just that 100% Fiction.

True... Personally, I've only been with Americans (never traveled abroad, but will soon  Smile), and I've certainly been quite satisfied, but I'm not the least bit surprised that as a country, Americans are having less sex and less satisfying sex. What can one expect in a country where we teach that sex is something to only be experienced once you reach marriage? What can expect in a country where to a very large extent, sex is still very taboo?

You're 20. By the time you're my age, once or twice a day suffices. You know. Job, bills, etc.

Just wait until you've fulfilled your biological imperative and watch your personal average plunge. It's not that you both don't want to, it's just that you suddenly have this very needy roommate who takes up a lot of time and energy.

O yeah?

Well, the last two times we saw each other on long weekends we never left the room (or put our clothes on) other than for eating or attending nature's call for 3 (6 days total) days straight. I'd say we spent a good 18 hrs a day going at it.  snooty 

Until I find another woman equal or better than her in the sack, those will remain the most glorious weekends of my life.

Of course, no matter what I say, there will always be somebody that has done more than me. Lucky bastards  grumpy 

At least I've done more than what 98% of a.net can say  Wink  duck

HAHA those really are the day, last year I lived in YLW and my gf lived in YVR. When she would come up to visit me, lets just say the only time we would get out of bed would be for a washroom break or to go eat. I loved those days... Now that I am back home its tougher because neither one of us have a place to ourselfs. Oh well we still make due and still blow the "average" out of the water.

I'm well above the average for Americans.

BTW, since the survey was conducted by a condom company, maybe it only means the number of times each year you have sex while wearing one? If that is the case, I'm well below the average.

That's the beauty of long distance relationships. You are guaranteed to get some, and LOTS of it when you finally see each other. I was in IAH and my ex was at CLE at the time.
