People From These Countries Are Apparently Most Likely To Have Sex On The First Date

A recent global study has revealed the Top Ten nationalities most likely to have sex on the first date, when they make the decision to sleep with a new partner, where they will take their new lover and what it is that gets them over the line.


The international study, conducted by Victoria Milan asked 5,650 of its female members from all around the world just how long it takes to get them into bed, and here's the results...

France, Denmark and Norway are the top three countries, with the majority of women ending their first date with a new lover between the sheets. 

56% of French women prefer to go back to their date’s place to have sex, while Danish (57%) and Norwegian women (68%) are more likely to visit a hotel.

The women from these three countries say they don’t go to the date expecting to have sex – they will make the decision during the date, and all three nationalities base their decision on how attentive their date is – it’s not about how good looking he is, how drunk they are, or how long it’s been since they had sex.

Women from Poland are the least likely to have sex on the first date, with only 12% ending the date in the boudoir. 

However, on the second date, 41% will drop their guard, with three-quarters making the decision during the date to sleep with their new love interest – and just under 70% say they’d probably do it in a hotel.

Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said there’s nothing wrong with having sex on the first date.

“Sex is a crucial part of any relationship – especially if it is to be a passionate affair. Confidence in knowing what you want, and how you are going to get it is extremely attractive, and I doubt any French, Danish or Norwegian women’s advances on the first date are ever rejected,” Mr Vedal said.

Of the 10 countries polled, the following is in order of average number of dates women need before going to bed for the first time with their new lover :






SPAIN 2.07


USA 2.32



All in the name of research of course... We wonder where Ireland would fit in?
