A new survey has shown that Kiwi women are the most promiscuous in the world, with an average of 20.4 sexual partners.

The survey, by condom-maker Durex, questioned 26 thousand people in 26 countries, and found that New Zealand women’s promiscuity average was way above the global average of 7.3.

The poll showed that Kiwi women are up there with Austrian men, who have 29.3 sexual partners, whilst Kiwi blokes rated 11th down the mens list with 16.8.

After the survey, New Zealand emerged as the only country where women have more sexual partners than their men.

However, Family Planning Association chief executive Jackie Edmond said that despite these findings, there is a safe-sex warning hidden in the figures.

"Consistent and competent use of condoms is key to lowering transmission of and infection with STIs (sexually transmitted infections). Young people need strategies to decide if and when to be sexually active,” Bang! Showbiz quoted Edmond, as saying.

"They need to negotiate condom use with their partners and make good decisions about their sexual health including regular sexual health checks at facilities such as Family Planning Association clinics,” he added.

Durex spokeswoman Kristie Penwarden said that the results would be used by the condom makers to identify inhibitions and pressures in the bedroom.
