Biologically, men are designed to be more active sexually, because of the higher quantity of testosterone in their bodies. And except some remote cultures, like in Tibet or Southern India, where polyandry (a woman can have several husbands) is practiced, this does happen.
But the annual Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey, made on 26,000 subjects from 26 countries, found that New Zealand women have in fact more sex partners than New Zealand men! This is unique amongst the countries of the world: women more promiscuous than men! A total record... Kiwi women had an average of 20.4 sexual partners, thrice the global average of 7.3, and double compared to British or Australian women. This is "Girl Power" or the meaning of "girls can do anything" went to extremes.
The New Zealand National Council for Women warns that young women act more like men behaving badly, losing that touch of femininity, and this wrong behavior is put on the high alcohol consume at the parties.
"Politically and economically, New Zealand women are blazing across the barriers. [But] women need to realize that empowerment does not disenfranchise them from being a woman. Women need to know that it is perfectly acceptable to act and behave like a woman and not a 'blokette' with something to prove to their male counterparts," council president Christine Low told TVNZ, marking the International Women's Day.
"Kiwi women drank just as much as Germans or Russians. But for some reason there's a perspective that women's drinking is worse here than anywhere else. Maybe [New Zealand] women don't know how to behave," said German-born Helene Wolf, a Wellington resident, told Stuff.co.nz.
But a TVNZ Sunday investigation into the sexual behavior of Kiwi women revealed that young New Zealand women are regularly getting drunk and cruising around in packs searching for men to have sex with.
"There was anecdotal evidence from the five women on the show that the Durex survey findings were valid. There's a new kind of mating ritual sex is the point of entry into the relationship. There's no dating culture any more," said Janet McIntyre of TVNZ.
These women know how to rapidly make the difference: if the first sex night was not satisfactory, they did not waste their time with such obsolete issues like dating before engaging into a relationship. These NZ women, all in their twenties, stated they felt empowered by having sex and all of those who had experienced one-night stands had been under the influence of alcohol.
This behavior impacted the men: a 2007 Bloke survey revealed that 29% of the 5,000 men felt they had been pressured into having sex or had had sex unwillingly. Oh, my God! We can witness such a situation ... I wonder what would be the opinion of our grandpas about this.
