    We’re all about covering the latest news on orgasms – like the real reason women orgasm, why having sex is better for you than going to the gym, and the age that you’ll experience the best orgasms.

    So naturally we were thrilled when we came across Lelo’s Orgasm Day 2017 Survey. The sex toy retailer did the hard work of quizzing 2,200 people across 21 countries about their big Os, asking questions such as how often they reach peak pleasure, the position that makes it easiest to do so, and how loud they are when they pass the finish line.

    Lelo crunched the numbers and released a list this week that ranked the countries where people orgasm the most and most intensely, as well as nations where citizens might want to amp up the bedroom action and increase their weekly orgasm count.

    Below are some of their most interesting findings.

    Norwegians have the most orgasms

    Norway’s chilly temps must be inspiring residents to create heat between the sheets, because 35% of Norwegian respondents said they have the big O at least once a day.

    On average, the worldwide climax rate is 2 to 3 times per week, according to the survey.

    People from Chile, Italy, and Spain have the most intense Os

    When asked to rate the intensity of their big Os, 10-13% of respondents from these three countries gave their orgasms a 10 out of of 10.

    Great Britain is having a great time

    53% of Brits in the survey said their orgasms were ‘sometimes loud’ – the highest in that category, and 11% of us have ‘at least one orgasm a day’. Don’t know about you, but we’re pretty proud to be British right now.

    Brazilians orgasm loud and proud

    Residents of Brazil are more likely to wake the neighbours after a an orgasm than people in any other country, as 65% of Brazilian respondents described themselves as screamers, stated the survey.

    Norway came in second, with 39.9% of those polled ‘fessing up to not being quiet during climax.

    Canadians should orgasm more

    While just 15% of Canadians say they’ve never experienced an orgasm, another 15% rated their orgasm intensity a paltry one on a scale of 1 to 10. Ouch.

    Americans have work to do

    Chileans, Italians, and Spaniards may be most satisfied with their orgasms, but 28% of U.S. respondents rated their Big O satisfaction at just 7.

    Here’s hoping they can work together to make America great again when it comes to climaxing.
