Sex by the Numbers
NEW DELHI, September 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Indian men have pathetic sex lives, reveals Men’s Health magazine’s Global Sex Survey

parks, cars….any place is good enough for a romp. Compare that to India: our women are
nearly six times as likely as American women to have done the deed in a taxi! No surprises
there. But the reason? Living in joint families doesn’t give us much privacy for
lovemaking. Going down on their girls is the most favourite act of an Italian and ‘the
Elephant’ pose of making out is what the French love the most (the Spanish love the Lotus
position, by the way).
Says Jamal Shaikh, Editorial Director of Men’s Health India: “Unlike so many other sex
surveys, our poll is not information-heavy, and neither is it just about charting changing
trends. We have tried to examine how men from different parts of the world are better than
others in certain aspects of sex and relationships, and then tell you how to learn and
