Offside: Those cheating Antwerpenaars
According to a survey from a dating website, the top five unfaithful cities in Flanders are Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Hasselt and Leuven
Flemings have sex once a week on average
Victoria Milan took a survey of its customer base, and the top five unfaithful cities are Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Hasselt and Leuven. Based on an average activity of adulterers, Antwerp is 23% more active than the average city, while Brussels is 19% more active. This is remarkable, in that Brussels has 33% more residents on the site than Antwerp does. Must be all those sailors – or at least the sea air.
To be fair, those cheating Antwerpenaars are only spending 23% more time on the website; no one knows, of course, how much they’re actually being unfaithful in real life. It could be they’re content to look but not touch.
Meanwhile, in Ghent (17% more randy than the national average) researchers working with colleagues from Leuven have produced a report on sexual health in Flanders. According to the university, it lays to rest 13 myths about sexual behaviour. Some findings:
Flemings have sex on average once a week, not the two to three times some might have us believe.
More people have a sexual attraction to members of the same sex than ever act on them – 72% of women and 46% of men.
One in four pregnancies is unplanned.
Men can also be victims of unwanted sexual attentions – 6.3% of males under the age of 18 and 1.7% of adults.
One woman in five and one man in eight suffers some kind of sexual dysfunction.
