South Korean women can't get no satisfaction

Where in the world is good sex? Eli Lilly does a survey.

Published February 10, 2006 6:36PM (EST)

Under the tantalizing headline "Who has the world's best sex? The worst?" Reuters today reported on a multinational survey of married couples' sexual satisfaction. (The survey was conducted by Eli Lilly, so we should all disregard any results indicating that what the world needs now is Cialis, sweet Cialis.) The full results won't be released till next week -- it's a Valentine's Day promo -- but the Reuters sneak peek shows that, of the populations surveyed, the least sexually satisfied group is women in South Korea. Fewer than one in three South Korean women said they were even slightly happy with the sex they're having with their husbands. Can we get these ladies a branch of Good Vibrations, or something?

No news yet on the satisfaction rates of American, French and Japanese women (though Reuters did report that Japanese men are least likely to seek help for erectile dysfunction, and that fewer than one in 10 French men has any complaints whatsoever about his sex life).

Tune in next week, for another installment of "As the World Boinks!"
