    Australia 'world's gayest country'
    September 23, 2003

    MORE than 17 per cent of Australians are involved in gay or lesbian relationships, putting the country equal first in the world for its proportion of homosexuals, according to a new worldwide survey.

    Bikers take part in Sydney's Mardi Gras Parade.

    The survey of sexual habits by international condom maker Durex found that together with Americans, Australians had the highest proportion of same-sex relationships.

    At the other end of the scale, Vietnam recorded the lowest proportion of gay and lesbian relationships, at three per cent.

    The company said Australians enjoyed a busy love life, having sex on average 125 times per year.

    Hungarians came out on top, having sex 152 times per year.

    But Australians were still ahead of Americans, at 118 times a year.

    The survey also found phone, text and cyber sex were gaining in popularity in Australia, with 43 per cent indulging in "virtual reality sex".

    The company said faking orgasms was also common in Australia, with 47 per cent of respondents admitting to doing so at least once.

    This was almost twice the global average of 26 per cent.

    The survey found 41 per cent of Australian men and women had sex for the first time because they were in love, and most agreed that more foreplay would improve their sex life.

    The company said more than 150,000 people took part in the on-line survey, which was now in its seventh year.
