Territorians don’t mind an orgy and are not embarrassed to use sex toys, survey of sexual habits shows.
Sixty four per cent of Territory women and 48 per cent of men admitted to having been in a threesome.
Fifty per cent of men admitted to being unfaithful and 33 per cent to having visited a brothel.
And 23 per cent said they had had sex with an online partner, the national survey by Australia’s biggest selling men’s magazine, FHM, showed.
“Territorians are a randy bunch,” editor John Bastick said.
He said the rest of Australia thought Territorians were prudish, despite them topping several categories in the sex survey.
“This is not true – you’re clearly shagging your brains out,” he said. …
But the Territory wasn’t always on top in the survey.
Territory men spend only six to 10 minutes on what Mr Bastick called “humpy-pumpy”, whereas the national average was 14-17 minutes.
The survey also showed Canberrans had more sex than anyone else. …
My God, how pathetic! Even 17 minutes is pretty damn ordinary, but 6!!! The Wicking cartoon in todays NT News has a potential explanation. It depicts an ugly, scowling wife and a beer-gutted, blue-singleted bloke talking on the phone to a mate and saying: “Yeah, well, we can’t risk the paper bag ripping … ha ha ha“. I reckon the explanation’s much simpler; most of the survey respondents haven’t got the faintest idea what good sex actually is:
Mr Bastick admits the FHM readership was young, 18-24 years.
As for the rest of the survey, all I can say is that I must be very atypical. I’ve never had phone sex (in fact I don’t reckon there’s any such thing; it’s just a self-protective euphemism for sad little people wanking over their PCs); haven’t been in a threesome; have never used a sex toy; and haven’t visited a brothel since I was in my 20s.
But I did get a laugh out of local comedian Phil O’Brien’s take on the survey:
Mr O’Brien has done his own sex survey.
“I surveyed the Humpty Doo area and 97 per cent of women really enjoy running their hands through generous amounts of back hair,” he said.
“Also, 98 per cent reckon the sight of a beer gut in early morning light is quite arousing.”
