An opinion poll carried out by Durex condoms has revealed that the majority of those questioned in Hong Kong stated that they preferred shopping to sexual relations.
Only three per cent declared that sex was the cause of the greatest pleasure in their lives. When the relations do take place, 20% said that the office was the most exciting venue, while 17 % preferred the beach.
Eleanor Mok Wai-ting explained this phenomenon, saying that “The people think: I have to spend all day in the office, so it would be better if I could have sex here and then I could go back to work immediately”.
The study revealed that the average Hong Kong resident has sexual relations 63 times per year. The average figure is 97, the champions being the USA with 124 relations per year.
