Switzerland has the highest percentage of people looking for casual sex

Yep, you read it right, thats the headline that went with the graph below. Switzerland is the blob on the top right corner.

Sadly, this means if you're having no luck, well, that's one more excuse gone!

Re: Switzerland has the highest percentage of people looking for casual sex

Given the High per capita GDP of Norway and Switzerland, and given that swiss-resident people look more for casual sex than norwegian-residents the only conclusion is that it's caused by.....foreigners!!!
- foreigners percentage in Switzerland: 22%
- foreigners percentage in Norway: 7%

It's crystal clear, you foreigners are all here just for sex.

Re: Switzerland has the highest percentage of people looking for casual sex

I wonder why anybody would even want to waste time and money on such stuff. In that specific case of the OP, I'd like to know what kind of questions those people were actually asked, and how the survey did factor in, for instance, the willingness or unwillingness of different cultures to answer such questions.

At first glance I thought it's funny, but I changed my opinion. Call me a party pooper, but next they will find out that owners of dogs that are exposed to second-hand smoking are more prone to lie to a highway trooper. WTF?

Re: Switzerland has the highest percentage of people looking for casual sex

There does seem to be a lot of it going on (looking and actual getting down to it) where I work (without me getting involved of course). I'm swore to secrecy but if the Eastenders script writers were to spend a week here they would go back to London shaking their heads muttering... "nah, it's too far fetched".

I was though approached last week by a (Swiss) friend of a regular client who openly admitted to being only married for a year but getting far too little sex from her husband. She has 20 lovers on the go and wanted to know if I would be the 21st.

I'm still not sure if that's meant to be a compliment .

Re: Switzerland has the highest percentage of people looking for casual sex

TWENTY? Heck, I struggle to keep track of my *insert much smaller number*.

Casual sex is the easiest way to get what your body wants without much risk to damaging your heart and soul. In a risk-averse country, it's only logical.

The Swiss and its expats are too cautious to commit.

I personally think it's also a sign that the Swiss are STRESSED OUT.

People used to drink more. Nowadays, it's casual sex. Same short-lived euphoric feeling.

Haha, DB, I really do mean "casual sex" and not "well, he/she doesn't want to commit but if I try hard enough, maybe I can make them change their mind" sex. For the latter, of course, your response will be utterly adequate and REAL casual sex is actually quite rare...
