Hello dear readers,
Welcome back to my world wind tour of the wonderful world of sex. As we leave the mystical eastern countries behind, we travel to the Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe for more teasing tasters of all things sex like.
And let us continue our journey …..
Paskistan – According to a 2011 survey, Pakistan is the country that looks up the word “sex” the most on Google.
India – Sex toys are illegal in India, and selling them can land you in jail for 2 years. Pornography, however, is not.
Oman – In Oman, people of the same sex often hold hands, and girls can be betrothed from as young as 11 or 12.
Saudi Arabia – In Saudi Arabia, all women, regardless of age, are required to have a male guardian. They cannot vote or be elected to high political positions.According to a UNESCO report, the percentage of Saudi women graduating from universities is higher than in Western Countries.
Sudan – In 2006, a south Sudanese man was caught having sex with a goat when he was drunk. As a punishment, he was made to buy, then later marry Rosa the goat, to restore it’s honor.
South Africa – 61% of South Africans have had a one night stand. 15 percent of survey respondents admitted to having slept with their best friend’s partners. One recent survey said a third of all South African teenagers have sex before they are 16.
Turkey – In 1934, Turkey was among the first nations to give women the political rights to vote and hold elected office, however, traditional values still hold strong. The concept of honor, referring to the sexual modesty of a woman, implies that men control the sexuality of women.
Cyprus – In legend, Cyprus is the birthplace of the ancient Greek Goddess of love, Aphrodite. Because of her beauty, she was married to the God of Smiting, Hephaestus,who was ugly and dour, but this didn’t stop her having affairs with gods and men, such as Ares, and Adonis.
Ukraine – It has been said (in more than just a lad’s mag survey) that some of the world’s most beautiful women come from the Ukraine. These including Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element), Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Mila Kunis, who played Jackie in That 70s Show, and is the voice of Meg Griffin in Family Guy.
Romania – A Romanian housewife who is now 25, claims that she became a mother at age 12, and that her daughter, Maria, had a baby boy at an even earlier age, 11. One for Jeremy Kyle I think.
Greece – According to the 2005 Durex Global Sex survey, the Greeks are the friskiest nation in the world, having sex and average of 138 times a year!
Hungary – Budapest Pride was the first such event in the former communist region of Europe. Prostitution in Hungary has been legalized and regulated by the government since 1999.
Bulgaria – Bulgarians are pretty frisky as well, but miss out on the bronze, coming in 4th in the sex frequency stats, with 127 times a year. According to the survey, 50% of Bulgarians have had sex in their car, and 61% have had sex in their parents’ bedroom.
OK, I’ve tried to keep this as positive as I can, but sadly, sex, as with everything else in life has a dark side. I have been searching for fun friendly sex facts about these 3 countries for about a week, and I have really struggled. I thought about missing them completely, but felt that the point of this blog is to be as honest as possible. Instead, I’ve decided to just report the honest facts that I found.
Slovinia – Although women were granted complete civil and political rights after World War II, feminist groups state that industrialization has not eradicated the traditional patriarchy but has only created a situation where women are exploited. Women are often treated as sex objects and are still expected to take care of all domestic matters even if they work full-time outside the home.
Belarus – Belarus legalized homosexuality in 1994; however, homosexuals face widespread discrimination.In August 2004 the International Lesbian and Gay Association reported that the Belarusian authorities forced a gay cultural festival, Moonbow, to be canceled amid threats of violence; foreigners who participated in any related activities would be expelled from the country.
Bosnia and Heregovnia – In the 1990s, during the Bosnian War, between 20,000 and 50,000 women were raped.
This happened, and is happening in our life times. Just take a second to think about that. Frightening eh?
As we continue west, here’s to better, safer, happier sex for all.
