Introduction

How the research was conducted

More than 317,000 people from 41
countries took part in the world’s largest
ever survey on sexual attitudes and
behaviour.

Based on the number of respondents
from 41 countries, the 2005 Durex Global
Sex Survey is the largest sexual health
research project of its kind in the world.

The research confirmed that Greece is
officially the sexiest country with the
Greeks having sex 138 times a year - well
above the global average of 103. Croatia
(134) and Serbia and Montenegro (128)
come a close second and third.

Now in its ninth year, the survey has
quadrupled in size since its launch and
covers 41 countries - newcomers this
year included Indonesia and Chile.

Almost half of all adults surveyed said
they were happy with their sex lives
although men are the least satisfied with
how often they have sex.
The survey also revealed the global
average age for first time sex is 17.3 and
the trend is for people to lose their
virginity earlier, with 16 to 20 year olds
becoming sexually active by 16.3 years.
Most people believe sex education
should start at 11.7 years. Virtually all
those surveyed believe children of 16 and
under should receive sex education and
more than a third believe governments
should invest in sex education in
schools.
Almost half of all adults globally admit
to having had unprotected sex without
knowing their partner’s sexual history,
despite more than one in 10 admitting to
having had a sexually transmitted
infection (STI).
On a lighter note, the most common
place for people to have sex outside
their bedroom was the car, followed by
toilets, parent’s bedroom and the park and a bold 2% have joined the mile high
club.

This is the fourth year that this survey
has been carried out via the durex.com
website and responses have been
analysed by sex and age to give an
in-depth and truly global picture of
sexual attitudes and behaviour.

Globally, the top three
conditions affecting sexual
health which people believe
need greater public awareness
are HIV/AIDS (72%), syphilis
(45%) and hepatitis (45%)

Worryingly, 8% of all adults
had never heard of most of
these conditions and when
broken down by age this lack
of knowledge increased to
11% among 16-20 year olds
and 12% among those aged 55
and above

Women are more likely to
want a focus on PID than men 26% compared to 15%; with
men (46%) placing greater
emphasis on awareness of
syphilis than women (43%)

Norwegians would like to see
a focus on chlamydia more
than any other nationality
(80%) and those in Slovakia,
France and Thailand are the
countries wanting to see the
most awareness on HIV/AIDS 95%

Vietnam is the country most
likely to want a focus on
syphilis (87%) and Israel
displays the biggest
knowledge gap with 23% of
adults claiming not to have
heard of most of the
conditions
