U S A! U S... Anyway
Are you happy with your country?
Depending on where you’re from, chances are you feel there’s no place like home or that you’re from the best country on Earth. In fact, if you live somewhere like the United States, that bold nationalism may very well have been the status quo for the past century.
And why shouldn’t we be proud of our home countries? Especially in the USA, we’re respected (or at least recognized) worldwide for our power, leadership, and influence, as well as for our dedication to human rights, personal freedoms, and other issues that are easily felt but hard to measure.
But when it comes to nationwide sexual satisfaction, the US is nowhere in sight. A recent study by Alternet ranked the world’s most sexually satisfied countries, and it would seem that the USA has a long way to go.
Italy has long been considered a romantic country; Men’s Health said seduction begins at the table. 64% of Italians rated their sex lives as ‘satisfying’ in the study, and Alternet points out a correlation between drinking wine and sexual satisfaction. Saluti!
Apparently the sex is a lot hotter just south of the border. With a 63% sexual satisfaction rate, there’s nothing to complain about here. The country takes a progressive stance on sex with forward-thinking sex ed in schools and regulated sex workers in half the country. Sadly, the nation does feel the negative effects of this due to high rates of sexual exploitation.
The first Asian nation on the list, India is a peculiar case study when it comes to sexual satisfaction. Though Indians on average lose their virginity later than most of the world (at 22), and although the average amount of time spent doing the deed is shorter than in the rest of the world (13 minutes), they averaged a 61% sexual satisfaction rate. The study cites that this may be due to the fact that Indians spend more time on the seduction process leading up to the act itself.
