Yet, somehow, amidst all that fornicating, the Swiss still manage to have one of the lowest teen birth rates in the world.
In 2012, a United Nations survey revealed that the teen birth rate in the United States was almost 10 times higher than in Switzerland.2. A quarter of the population of Spain rates their sexual performance as excellent.
Italy: With an abundance of good wine and good food, it’s no wonder Italians rate high on the sexual satisfaction scale.
According to Men’s Health, sexual seduction in Italy begins at the table as food and sex are inextricably linked.
This may be the reason Italians are considered amongthe top lovers in the world.
Despite America’s superpower status across the globe and the fact we can claim sex icons George Clooney and Kate Upton as our own, Americans overall are not as sexually satisfied as our foreign brothers and sisters.
While some of us certainly hold progressive views about sex, we are still considered by and large a puritanical society, which may explain our mediocre levels of satisfaction.
Conservatives and right-wing Christians have long fought hard against political reform to liberalize sex in the United States, from limiting reproductive rights and sex education to lobbying against gay marriage and sex work.
But what effect, if any, has this had on our sexual satisfaction?
Countries that are more socially liberal and have relaxed attitudes toward sex tend to have lower rates of STDs, teen pregnancies and abortions, and much more satisfying sex lives in general.
On the other hand, just belonging to a socially repressive culture doesn’t always equate with satisfaction or how often populations get down—take Russia, where 80% of the population has sex at least once a week. Americans are having a lot less sex than our overseas friends overseas.
