Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. I’ll let “Stuff” take it away:
“Dating culture is dead – instead, young New Zealand women are regularly getting drunk and cruising around in packs looking for men to have sex with.
That’s one of the findings of a TVNZ Sunday investigation into the sexual behaviour of New Zealand women. The programme makers did the story after Kiwi women last year topped the Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey as the world’s most promiscuous.
They are reported to have an average of 20 sexual partners, double that of their Australian and British counterparts and almost three times the global average of seven.”
The sound you just heard was millions of American men rushing to book flights to New Zealand. All I can say is that I was clearly born far too early, and tragically not in New Zealand.
But perhaps there is a downside…the same article reported that Kiwi men weren’t entirely grateful for the trend:
“The Sunday Star-Times’ Being a Bloke survey last year found that 29% of the 5000 men surveyed felt they had been pressured into having sex or had had sex unwillingly.”
I get the feeling that the hordes of bachelors in Silicon Valley would be quite delighted to take their place…at first at least. “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is spongy…and bruised.”
