Low in Many World Rankings, Greeks Tops When Comes to Sex

Greece may not fare well in competitive rankings in many economic areas but nobody beats them in bed.

A survey by the condom-maker Durex of the sexual habits of 30,000 people from 26 nationalities found that Greeks have sex most often, with 89 percent of adults saying they do it at least once a week.

That was ahead of even the hot Brazilians who were next at 85 percent and then the Russians at 80 percent. Some 91 percent of Brazilians and 86 percent of Greeks “strongly agreed” that sex was an integral part of their health and well being.

Not only did they do it often, but long too, the Greeks and Nigerians tied for the longest sessions in the sack at 21 minutes although Africans had an edge in performance apparently as they were first in how happy they were with their sex lives at 67 percent.

They were followed by Mexico, India and Poland with Greece ranking fifth with 54 percent claiming a high level of sexual satisfaction, no further details given on which side was less happy afterward.

At the bottom of the list are the Japanese, who work most of the time and the survey finding only 15 percent said they were satisfied with their sex and only 34 percent doing it once a week.

Next to last, perhaps surprisingly, were Americans who like to work too. 


ATHENS - Greece is in a prime position to be able to offer visitors wellness and spas among tourist destinations as it seeks to diversity what it can off, particularly through its thermal mineral springs, said speakers at the Global Wellness Economy conference in the capital.
