Well, well, well - wouldn't you know it? Results released by sex tracking app Spreadsheet show that Australia is one of the 10 most sexually active countries in the world. As if that wasn't reason enough to swell with pride, Aussies ranked number one for endurance.
Spreadsheets reached these conclusions based on data it collected from 13,000 users in 133 countries. It gets this data in a very voyeuristic manner - users simply toss their phones on their beds during the act, and it does the rest, registering duration, thrusts per minute, decibel levels, and more. It's like Fitbit for your sex life.
To be fair, there were a number of countries who pipped us to the bedpost when it came to frequency of sex, but it seems like Australia has a thing or two figured out about quality over quantity.
When it comes to the duration of getting hot and steamy between the sheets, Australia was the only country on that list to cross the 4-minute benchmark, clocking in at an average duration of 4 minutes and 3 seconds. Those smooth-talking Brits don't have much to brag about, lasting just 2 minutes 56 seconds. We'll take double the fun any day! While a high five is warranted this still means our average sex session is less than 5 minutes in duration, let's hope we made up for it with foreplay.
This serves as an interesting follow-up to our "Dicks Around the World" article, which looked at global data on penis size.
Although Australia's standing on that list was certainly a matter of pride - number 20 out of nearly 200 in the world - many of you felt that this pride was misdirected. It's not the size of the boat, but the motion of the ocean, that's worth writing home about.
This latest nugget of information from Spreadsheets just goes to drive this point home. Penis size really does have very little to do with the sexual satisfaction one is able to deliver, and the majority of women rank penis size pretty far down on their list of partner priorities.
