While Indians may be a happy race when it comes to a talking to their partners about sex-role play, fantasies and other antics in bed, but when it comes to the Big “O” or orgasm — they are sadly surpassed by Italians, Mexicans, Spanish and South Africans.
According to a Durex Sexual Wellbeing survey released on Tuesday, of 26,000 people in 26 countries, surveyed on key aspects of their sex lives: health, general well-being, education, beliefs, sex and relationships, attitudes to sex and social circumstances — the Asian population surfaced as clear losers when compared to rest of the world.
For the Indians who were surveyed — only 46 per cent managed to achieve orgasm almost every time they have sex, when compared to the Italians, Mexicans, Spanish and South Africans who are the most likely to climax every time they have sex, with 66 per cent managing to hit the spot almost every time.
The survey said that the Chinese and people from Hong Kong were least likely to achieve orgasm with only 24 per cent success rate, marginally beaten by Japan who are comparatively better off with 27 per cent success rate.
The survey also focused on the correlation between orgasm and psychological health and emotional well-being.
Seventy-two per cent of Indians who orgasm regularly said they were happy with their psychological health. This compares well with other countries — 50 per cent of the British and 74 per cent French people enjoy good psychological health while a whopping nine in ten (88 per cent) Spaniards feel at ease with themselves sexually. The survey found that, globally, 58 per cent of those who usually achieve orgasm were content with the emotional aspects of their sex life compared with 29 per cent of those who rarely climax.
Seventy-seven per cent who frequently orgasm feel close to their partner during sex — a figure that falls to 54 per cent for those who have difficulty hitting the spot.
