How Many Kiwis Own A Vibrator?

How Many Kiwis Own A Vibrator?

New Zealand's sexiest celebrity? Vibrators? Are we any good in bed? Are we still having unsafe sex?

All will be revealed on Tuesday 12 October when results from the 2004 Durex Global Sex Survey are released.

More than 350,000 people from 41 countries took part in this year's sex survey, understood to be the world's largest study into sexual attitudes and behaviour.

In 2003, the sex survey found that Kiwis were high on one-night stands, pretty slack in the safe sex department, and voted Jeremy 'Newsboy' Wells the nation's sexiest celebrity.

"Last year we learnt that while Kiwis were having a lot of sex, the enjoyment factor was missing with two thirds of Kiwi women admitting they had faked an orgasm," says Victoria Potter, Durex NZ Manager. "It will be interesting to see if Kiwis' sex lives have improved this year."
