There has been a recent springtime flurry of activity for my Halloween-themed post “Best Costume Ever“, so I figured this is a good time to introduce the world to its evil twin, the Worst Costume Ever:
Is you type ‘roissy’ into Google, the first option isn’t a link just to this blog but specifically to the ‘Best Costume Ever’ post. That’s why everyone has been posting there. Wasn’t sure if you were aware or not.
which country is primarily responsible for the hardcore porn revolution?
Denmark? Germany? America is gigantic. Lots of countries have far outstripped it in per capita porn production.
it’s a snobby self-gratifying internationalist myth that americans are sexually conservative.
When I was a teen, I could watch hardcore porn broadcast happily and freely on the air without encryption, on a channel that then showed televangelism and totally crackpot Christian children’s programs next morning.
Being sexually suppressed in public doesn’t mean having sex less often in private.
So does the Red Light district in the Netherlands.
According to your referenced chart and its linked origin on the Durex website:
The world average (f=103) is beaten by most of the 41 countries surveyed. It would be more accurate to say that the US is above the mean sex frequency at f=113, but not the highest. The UK, Greece, and France consistently have much higher frequencies. Many other countries have about the same numbers, with a year or two with greater frequency.
When I commented, I spoke without stats, but as someone who has lived in other countries too. (I think you did too?)
Good research though. I thought Swedes would be wilder than represented.

Swedes? Swedes! Wild?! As far as stereotypes go, that’s about as good as the religion of peace.
People who feel they have to do relationships probably have more frequent sex but with fewer partners than wilder people. That’s actually what you see for all of northern Europe in that page. Not that it’s likely to mean much, being self-reported.
What is the myth of American uptighness all about? Hooters hires women with big breasts to serve the food, but it’s a “family” place, so they don’t serve liquor. Maybe the boobs are meant to serve the patrons wholesome milk?
Anyone remember that scene from Men In Black?
Where Kay kicks that guy where his nuts should be and Jay is like “Hes a Balls-Chinian!” So he punches his chin instead.
Just thought I’d share that with you.
