Less than half of Finns are happy with their sex life. The number one reason is infrequent sex.

The raw truth is revealed in the latest condom indicator study, by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education RFSU, which was published on Tuesday.

In the previous study, only 44 per cent of Finns thought they were having too little sex. In 2016, the number has peaked to an incredible 70 per cent.

In addition, 40 per cent of the respondents complained about the lack of a suitable partner, and every fifth of the Finnish women have trouble getting orgasms. As much as 60 per cent of the ladies have sometimes faked an orgasm and one tenth is faking it every time.

Young adults are also unhappy with their own bodies, which is the reason behind their unsatisfactory sex lives. In the Nordic countries, the unhappiest young adults are found in Finland: 33 per cent of the 21-35-year-olds said that the reason for their bad sex life was their body.

Finland is, however, the most eager country in the Nordics to use a condom. But still, only 29 per cent of the Finns choose a condom for their protection. The young adults use the rubber more often: 39 per cent use the rubber frequently, but only half of the young adults said that they wrapped their willies with a new partner.

A significant number of 4,260 respondents took part to the 2016 Condom Indicator study conducted by RFSU, the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education.

The sample was limited to 15-65-year-old persons who live in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, and who have had sex at least once.

The study is extensive nationwide.

The first Condom Indicator study was published in 2009.

RFSU was founded in 1933. Today it is the leading organisation in Sweden in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). RFSU has no party political or religious affiliation.
