An Internet survey of sexual activity that had 317,000 people respond with details concerning their sex lives indicated that Turks enjoyed the most sexually active life style. Turks lead the world by having about 14 sex partners during the course of their lives compared to 10 in the United States. The survey indicates that countries having low incomes tend to be less sexually promiscuous while those nations enjoying high standards of living allow individuals to be more sexually active.
The survey also indicated that as individuals have more sex partners they become less and less concerned about safe sex. It appears as the person moves on from one partner to another they guard less against sexual diseases. Figures for safe sex were 45.3% of females lacked protection while 48.4% of men fell in the same category.
