The Institute for Public Opinion, one of France’s most reputable market research firms, inadvertently busted a myth recently when it found that more than three-quarters of French couples lead impoverished sex lives.
Common excuses from both genders to skip sex? Headaches, exhaustion, and the children.
The BBC loved the report — most likely still sore from the Global Sexual Satisfaction Survey that showed the Brits aren’t doing too well in that department, either.
The survey, arranged by a pharmaceutical company selling sex-improvement meds, only surveyed some 1,000 French adults, we must note, to keep things in perspective — and it’s in their best interest to paint the nation as one experiencing a sexual crisis.
But as the Global Survey previously indicated, a lot of people aren’t happy with their sex lives these days. One can’t help but wonder: is something wrong? Have we placed so much emphasis on work and achievement, are we so busy surviving that we have ceased taking care of our personal lives?
Do yourself a favor: make some time to enjoy some pleasure today.
