1. Greece


This country has a long tradition of sex that dates back to ancient times — these are the guys that brought us pederasty and Sapphic love. With its temperate Mediterranean weather, beaches and tons of islands, Greece’s ingredients make it the No. 1 most sexually active country in the world.

2. Brazil 

Considering this is the birthplace of the thong, it makes sense that sex is as essential as breathing in Brazil. This country’s beaches are filled with gorgeous women and during its annual Carnaval even the most stubborn inhibitions disappear and this destination proves its spot on the top 10 most sexually active countries list.

3. Russia

rsz_russiaWas the Cold War’s biggest secret that the Russians were having more sex than we were? Since the fall of Communism it looks a lot more likely that it actually was. Russian’s libidos are inspiring them to fill tons of new Moscow clubs and bars where hookups are a nightly pastime in this country.

4. China 

The more China’s Cultural Revolution thaws, the more its sexual revolution heats up. Want prove? Just in the past eight years, 5,000 sex shops have opened in Beijing alone. Plus, China even has a SEXPO, where Chinese residents come to check out sex paraphernalia. And with 70% of the world’s sex toys made in China, its sexually active country status means that a good deal of their hard work won’t have to go very far.

5. Poland


For a fairly conservative culture, Poland has earned a steamy reputation as one of the sexually active countries out there. Poland has an annual Eroticon festival that showcases the latest and greatest sex toys and mechanisms in the adult industry.

6. Italy 

Many Italians live la dolce vita with sex high on their list of things to do on a daily basis. A poll found that 32% of Italians over 60 years old have sex regularly. It’s unclear if this means seniors are schtupping around the clock or once a week. However, one thing’s clear; their frequency in the sack helped give this country a spot on our list of top 10 most sexually active countries.

7. Malaysia

In public, this country definitely appears conservative. For example, there was a recent controversy over whether sex education should be taught in high school or not — not exactly sexually liberated. However, behind closed doors lies (pun totally intended) the real story: Malaysians are swinging from the bedposts, and loving every minute of it.

But if you think all this time spent swinging helped promote Malaysians as sex experts, this recent survey by Durex could prove you wrong. Check out the truth about Malaysian youth and their attitudes towards sex. (And yes, we also had no idea Durex ran surveys)

8. Spain

In the land of Latin love, sex is a foregone conclusion. Its traditional, sexually charged culture has even gone through a modern update. Recently, it’s been reported that Spanish men have turned to our modern-day Spanish fly, Viagra, to please their ladies longer — even if they are fully capable of the act without the pill. Of course, this little enhancement makes sure they meet their own expectations as well, proving that this is definitely one of the most sexually active countries around.

9. Switzerland 


Sure, they’re politically neutral, but the Swiss definitely have an opinion about sex. That opinion roughly translates to: “Gimme more.” Apart from their regular bedroom feats, prostitution is also legal in this country. Every year 350,000 Swiss pay their own way for pleasure. With this level of commitment it’s no wonder they made our list of top 10 most sexually active countries.

10. Mexico 

Want to take a sexy siesta? Meet people of the sun and fun in our No. 10 most sexually active country. Mexicans kick off our list of boot-knocking peoples, and they start from an early age. In fact, in May of 2008 Mexico City’s government distributed 700,000 copies of sex-ed textbooks to deliver to the city’s student population, well aware that the kids would be doing the horizontal tango one way or another.
