Stats on global sexuality
Are sexual statistics accurate?
Actually, there’s a lot of people that refuse to answer to sex-related surveys or the give information that doesn’t completely match reality. Fortunatelly, the youngest population have a more open-minded and honest approach to their sexuality. There’s no doubt education played an essential role in this new point of view and helped to overcome old stereotypes and prejudices. Sex used to be taboo but now it’s a way to express our feelings in regards to human relationships, not only physically but also in terms of erotism, pleasure and intimacy. Nowadays, people freely experiment with their sexuality and express it with actions and thoughts charged with desires and fantasies.
Sexuality and statistics
There’s a lot of different elements that conform human sexuality. That’s why, when someone proposes to study this part of life, it can be approached from so many different perspectives. Sex statistics can use a number of parameters and the results must always be put into context. This said, we can actually see some information that usually makes it to sex statistics.
Measuring sexual habits usually requires to conduct surveys. One of the most recurrent one is about the age of virginity loss. In Spain, this age went from 20 to 16 years in the last few decades. This is due to imitation behaviour, peer preassure and change in the cultural and family values.
Numbers seem to show Spain as a country with a very sexually active population: 71,7% of men and 65,3% of women say so. Not only that, but 25% of the people surveyed state they have sex more than 3 times a week. However, some professionals point out that the data coming from these surveys are not fully reliable. Apparently, when taking in consideration other sources such as the internet, people speak up some concerns that they don’t mention in the surveys that question said surveys.
What about other countries? Sexual behaviour is actually really different depending on the country we check. As it happens, sexuality is very important for Greeks and Brazilians, considered essential by about an 80% of the population. On the other hand, it’s only relevant for a 38% of Japanese and Thai people. Whilst Greek people have sex an average of 164 times a year, it’s only 48 for the Japanese.
Other parameters that are usually taken into consideration are the length of the relationships or the time couples spend talking about their sexuality. Incidentally, Indians seem to be the fastest ones, whilst the Greeks are once again the ones that devote more time to their relationships.
Keep your sex stats personal
In oposition to all the data coming from the surveys (which can or can not be accurate) maybe we’re more into focusing on our own personal sex information. It would be a great idea to have sexual information that we could analyse privately. However, sexual data is hard to collect and record. Taking a break to fill a form about how our sexy time went is not what we particularly fancy after having sex, nor the nicest thing to do in front of our partner.
However, if we don’t want to give up on getting to know our sex habits, tech can come handy in a very easy way. A sexual monitor device can sound odd at first, intrusive and even disturbing but that’s actually not the case.

Using the device on a daily basis will allow to check a whole record of statistics with graphics and details to understand what kind of lover you are. Therfore, the information will only be yours. What surveys say doesn’t matter any more.
