The question is: How do you stack up?
Australia might be a hot country but it turns out that we’re not as hot-blooded as we’d like to think. In fact, Aussies are fairly average when it comes to sex — but the good news is, these stats can be changed if we just put in a little more time and effort (if you catch my drift).
So, here’s how our sex lives compare to other countries:
Australia is such a big country, so it makes sense that our sex lives and tastes vary between states.
The people of our nation’s capital are getting between the sheets more often than the rest. Just in case you were curious, the missionary position is a favourite. But before you Canberrans start bragging, the ACT is also the state of cheaters: A whopping 58 per cent have already or would consider cheating.
NSW isn’t much better: Over one in two claimed to have been cheated on by a partner. In Tasmania, 15 per cent admitted to cheating.
South Australians are the country’s most sexually satisfied people, while 44 per cent of Tasmanians aren’t content at all. Victorians are the least satisfied, but they’re making up for it in fantasies: Their collective bucket list included threesomes and having sex with a celebrity.
Now, onto the question many of us will be dying to ask: Who’s having more fun — the single ladies or the girlfriends and wives?
The Great Australian Sex Census of 2012 found that 42 per cent of singles have a regular sex partner, or are enjoying a "friends with benefits" situation. While that’s not a bad figure, the survey also found that only 23 per cent of singles were satisfied with the sex they were having. In comparison, 61 per cent of dating couples and 44 per cent of married couples were happy with their activities in the bedroom. However, 11 per cent of married women never have sex.
But as it turns out, most of us don’t think sex is the most important thing in a relationship. Two-thirds of attached Aussies said they are with their current partner for love despite the fact that their sex life is unsatisfactory. Now, that’s commitment!
Guys, listen up: Australian women want more sex and they want it more often. While 33 per cent of us are having sex 1–2 times a week, a huge 46 per cent want it 3–5 times.
Although 23 per cent of us love the corporate suit-and-tie look, tradies really do get the ladies: Aussie women voted tradies the sexiest men in the country.
When it comes to fantasies, the sex survey revealed some interesting insights. Nearly one in 10 women want to see what it’s like to be in an, ahem, adult film, while — and this is a bit of a shock — four in 10 would sleep with a friend’s partner if the opportunity arose. (To put our wishful thinking into context, 71 per cent of men fantasise about sleeping with a co-worker).
