It is often considered the most amorous nation on the planet, but France doesn’t even feature in a new list of the most sexually satisfied countries.
According to a Durex global survey of 26,000 people, aged 16 and older, across 26 countries, only 44 per cent of people are fully satisfied with their sex lives.
In the wake of these results, AlterNet has compiled a list of the 12 most sexually satisfied countries, with Switzerland, Spain and Italy topping the list.
The UK and the US were nowhere to be seen.

According to Durex, satisfaction declines as we get older, as we have sex less often and have fewer new relationships.
If people are in good mental and physical health; free from stress and sexual dysfunction; and have frequent sex and foreplay, then they are more likely to be satisfied.
to Durex: “Achieving orgasm is a key driver of sexual satisfaction. Just 48 per cent of us said that they usually orgasm. Globally, twice as many men (64 per cent) as women regularly have orgasms.”
