Ah yes, nothing promotes international harmony like poorly designed polls that support cultural stereotypes.
From The Guardian (UK) comes this bit of fluff:
German men are ‘world’s worst lovers’ with English men in second place
German men have been voted the world’s worst lovers, narrowly beating English men to the unwanted title.
A poll of 15,000 women found that Germans are considered “too smelly”.
English lovers came second because they are so lazy, while men from Sweden were branded “too quick to finish” and came third.
Spanish men topped the table as the best lovers, followed by Brazilians and Italians.
The poll, carried out by global research site http://www.OnePoll.com, asked women from 20 countries to rate nations on their ability in bed and give reasons for their answers.
Germans were deemed to have bad body odour, Englishmen were accused of letting women do all the work, whilst Swedes were a bit too quick to finish.
Men from Holland were “too rough” between the bed covers and Americans were accused of being “too dominating” in the bedroom.
Greek men were said to be a bit too soppy.
Other countries who didn’t fare well in the poll were Scotland (too loud), Turkey (too sweaty) and Wales (too selfish).
Russian men crept in at tenth place amid accusations they are too hairy for the average woman.
A spokesperson for http://www.OnePoll.com added: ”These results are an eye-opener for thousands of men around the world and female travelers might judge potential new lovers by looking at these results.”
WORLD’S WORST LOVERS:
1. Germany (too smelly)

WORLD’S BEST LOVERS
6. South Africa
8. New Zealand
Brazil? The country that practically makes plastic surgery mandatory?
Greece? What the heck is “too lovey-dovey” supposed to mean?
Scotland: Too much moaning and groaning? Do women not like that kind of thing? And what’s up with England and Scotland that apparently is okay in Ireland?
Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go work up a hairy sweat by throwing Mrs. Edge around the bedroom for a few minutes; after which I’ll lie back, let her do the work, and then roll over and take a nap.
