Portuguese men are world sex champions

in News · 16-11-2002 00:00:00 · 0 Comments

According to an unprecedented study that covered 12 countries, Portuguese are the most sexually active in the world. The findings of the US institute, International Communications Research (ICR), one in eight Portuguese men have sex more than 20 times a month. Despite their appetite, the study found that Portuguese men cheat just as often as men from other countries.

Researchers from ICR concluded that Portuguese men “have sex an average of 8.7 times a month, while the international average is 6.2”.
Responding to the question “have you had an extra-marital affair?”, Portuguese men were lower down the order, being as faithful as most other men.
In percentage terms, 38 percent of Portuguese men admitted to having an affair, with the international average being 39 percent.
Portuguese men further felt they were romantic, with 52 percent selecting “alongside the fireplace” as their most preferred venue besides the bedroom.
The base for this study was obtained via the magazine Men’s Health, with four hundred men in each of Portugal, Britain, the USA, South Africa, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and Slovenia being used as a sample.
