Who Knew?

There's a lot of fascinating ans surprising stuff in the recent Durex Global Sex Survey, which included 317,000 participants and 41 countries. Here's what struck me:
- Obviously, the two statistical outliers vis-a-vis promiscuity: Turkey, with its average of 14 sexual partners (!), and Norway, with its 70% (!) of people claiming to have add unprotected sex without knowing the sexual history of their fellow diseased blond Viking.
- The fact that it seems a more or less common assumption (except if you're from Iceland, German, or the Low Countries) that being a virgin at 15 is, like, totally normal, but at 16 begins to look totally fucking uncool.
-
The U.S. shares infinitely more in common with Thailand than it does with New Zealand, Spain, and Hong Kong.
- The birthplace of the Kama Sutra is by far the worst place to go if you want to a) have Sex, b) get a sexually transmitted disease, c) desire to do both a and b via the "raw dawg" route.

Your own thoughts? If Thomas Friedman decides to read the Huffy Crew today, what implications does this survey have on our ever flattening world?

Pre-marital sex is intrinsically evil, by the way.
