All Work and No Play


A condom company survey found Singaporeans have the second-lowest sex drive of 22 nations studied, and its birth rate is 30% below what it needs to replace its current population. The Singapore government says economic pressures force people to work so hard they have no energy or time for sex, so it’s promoting sex therapy, an alluring perfume blend and reducing controls on sex-oriented entertainment. There is even talk of repealing laws against oral and anal sex.
Who has the most sex? The French (137 times per year on average), followed closely by couples in Greece (133), Serbia/Montenegro (131), Hungary (131) and Macedonia (129). Japanese have sex the fewest times per year (46) with Singapore and Hong Kong next at 79 times per year. U.S. is toward the middle at 111, slightly more than Canada at 108.

"promoting sex therapy, an alluring perfume blend". Hmm... Maybe someone needs to tell their government what sex therapy really is. (vbg)

uh, I guess that should be "promoting sex therapy and an alluring perfume blend."

You said it correctly, I was being silly.

I wonder if they are selling the perfume or giving it away. (I feel a trip to singapore may be in the near future for the hussies.)

I don't imagine the condom company expected that kind of reaction to their report though. At least they didn't ban condoms.

Sigh. My husband never got the memo stating he can only have sex every third day. He thinks he's underprivileged and deprived at every other day...

Whew, at least I'm above the US average... my honey will be so happy to hear that :) Of course I will refrain from mentioning that the French lead the way. No sense in giving the man a challenge to outdo anyone --- or then again, maybe that's an Excellent idea :) hmmmmmm.....

Yeah, Sally, you and the other hussies might think about striking a deal with the government to distribute books to raise the horny quotient. I dunno if you can tear Syneca away from her husband, though. Sounds like they're pretty busy most of the time. Anny might be ready for a break, though.
