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.
