Study Reveals How New Zealanders Are Having Sex, and We're Pretty Kinky!

Study Reveals How New Zealanders Are Having Sex, and We're Pretty Kinky!

An in-depth study undertaken by UK researcher DrFelix has unveiled how people are having sex around the world, and states that New Zealanders are among the kinkiest!

The study, How we're having sex from Chile to China, reveals what our most intimate moments in the bedroom are likely to involve, depending on where you live and your gender.

The data reveals some interesting patterns of sexual activity in various corners of the world. It shows that some groups of nations aren't merely linked by social factors and geography - they also get up to the same kind of stuff in the bedroom...

The study reveals that major English-speaking nations of the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are the most sexually adventurous people on the planet!

English speakers like to get kinky, apparently, with more people using a blindfold or masks during sex in English speaking countries than anywhere else in the world.

Pass the lube, I'm a New Zealander!

More English speakers, such as New Zealanders and Aussies, use lubricant than in other countries.

Good on you, kiwis, for keeping things smooth and well lubricated!

On top of this, the study also reveals that English speakers are more likely to use vibrators.

This trend is reflected by New Zealanders' shopping habits too, because more Google searches for "sex toys" come from English speaking nations than any others!

LGBT data

The LGBT community is also the most strongly represented in English speaking countries.

More people have had a gay experience in Australia than anywhere else - an average one in every five people across the English-speaking nations (20%).

Australia takes home the LGBT trophy though! 22% of Australians have shared an intimate moment with somebody of the same sex, compared with a global average of just 12%.

Then we take a look at how your nationality might influence who you sleep with, and there are some juicy findings here, too.

The nationals of Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Finland are generally pretty content with their lives; these countries rank first, third, fourth and fifth on the World Happiness Index respectively.

These very same countries (in almost the same order) are where the most married couples are getting it on with other people - coincidence?

Where are people most likely to cheat?

A whopping 46% of Danish people say they've had an extra-marital affair. In Norway, it's 41%, and in Iceland, 39%. In Finland – 36%. Which means if you're an average Scandinavian and you know ten married couples, four of them are probably cheating on each other.

Whether that's what makes them so happy remains to be seen, but it's certainly a coincidence!

It appears that Scandinavians are the world's most promiscuous people, too. The neighbouring countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland are where the most people have had a one-night stand (around two thirds of the population in each country), compared to a global average of only 44%.

Single life, it seems, is pretty damn good in Scandinavia!

Who loves anal sex?

There's a reason Europeans refer to anal sex as "doing it Greek". Greeks, along with the similarly sun-kissed Chileans, Italians, and Croatians, are top of the list of anal sex aficionados. 55% of Greeks have tried anal sex at least once.

That doesn't mean to say it isn't popular elsewhere in the world though!

More than a third of people in the world say they've tried anal sex. Some nations, however, are happy with less adventurous sex...

Indians are the least likely to have had a sexual experience beyond what is considered to be "normal" sexual intercourse. Two thirds say they've never had anal sex, a threesome, or used any kind of sexual aids like toys.

But that doesn't mean to say they're unfulfilled.

In fact, Indians are some of the most contented people with their sex lives in the world. 61% said they're "fully satisfied" - beaten only by Nigeria and Mexico.

We love sex toys!

If there's one thing most of the world's population might agree on in the bedroom, it's a love for using sex toys.

According to the study, men and women seem to be equally fond of sex toys. Exactly half are bought by men and half by women, according to the research.

Men are far more likely than women to buy fleshjacks and fleshlights, (which makes sense because these are sex toys designed specifically for men), sex toy accessories, small condoms and realistic sex dolls.

Women, on the other hand, buy more novelty gifts, halloween costumes, body paint and rude food, plus sized basque and corsets, and nipple tassles.

Both men and women buy lots of lube, but curiously, men are more likely to buy lube when they're single, while women are more likely to buy it when they're in a relationship.

That could suggest that men, unlike women, anticipate having the most sex before they meet that special person, or men use a lot more lubricant during their single masturbation sessions! - I'd put money on the latter...

Men seem to be ready for more adventurous sex when they're single too, because that's when they're the most likely to buy anal sex toys.

Women, on the other hand, tend to save certain kinds of sexual aids for until they meet that special person. They're far more likely to buy anal sex toys, for example, once they're in a relationship.

Almost one in ten single men (8%) even buy sexy lingerie in case of an unexpected romantic encounter. 5 pc sexy cop costume5 Pc Sexy Cop Costume$152.95Shop NowPecker Ring TossPecker Ring Toss$10.95Shop Now

When do we like to use sex toys?

People like using sex toys alone just as much as with other people. Two thirds (66%) of single women buy vibrators, and the vast majority of men – 78% – say they would consider buying a sex toy for solo use.

Almost as many men - 68% - wouldn't mind if a woman used a vibrator on them, either.

There are the odd few people who don't agree though. 4% of people think those who own sex toys are "weirdos". Obviously these people are missing out on a LOT of fun!

However, pretty much everybody likes to masturbate.

In the USA alone, there are almost 800,000 people masturbating at any given moment!

Slightly more men masturbate than women - 95% to 89%. Women, however, are much more likely to use a toy while masturbating. 53% of women use a vibrator, compared to only 17% of men.

What do we fantasise about?

Most men have one thing in common - they like the thought of oral sex.

It's the most popular masturbation fantasy among men (for 88%). For women (85% of them) it's sex in a romantic location.

Most men also fantasise about sex with two women (85%), sex with somebody they know besides their partner (83%) and sex in an unusual place (82%).

Most women fantasise about sex in an unusual place (82%), oral sex (76%) and performing oral sex on a man (72%).

So, what's the verdict?

New Zealanders love sex, they love sex toys, they love masturbating, and they love being adventurous in the bedroom!

Good on you, New Zealand! Now let's go and buy some more sex toys to make good sex, great!
