Some Wildly Inaccurate Sexual Stereotypes Based on Which Country Your Lover Is From

"People often switch to their native language at the moment of climax."

Travelers open themselves up to a world of new experiences: spelunking in the caves of Costa Rica, Valencian paella dishes, strolls down the Champs-Élysées, maybe even sighting the phalluses of the Indian Konark Sun Temple. But, if you're a particularly adventurous dancer or frequent hostels with sangria-filled "youth activity nights," you'll know that part of mingling with another culture is mixing with the locals. The sexual anthropologists over on Reddit have compiled a list of their myriad worldly experiences to finally answer the question, "Do people from other countries have sex any differently?" Some are blatantly stereotypical, some I'm pretty skeptical about, while others are hilariously insightful. No one culture can be reduced to a sex act, and no one partner speaks to a whole nation, but, man, we do have our habits.

Guatemala

"I've hooked up with a girl from Guatemala and a girl from Haiti. Both depended on me to be very dominant and take total control. Not in a kinky way but in more of a 'let's do what YOU want' way. That may have been just them though. It's hard to classify two experiences as representative of a culture."

Germany

"I've noticed German girls stick their finger in my butt more than other girls and without warning."

Netherlands

"I can tell you the Dutch have a paltry amount of swear words and frequently use English profanity intermingled with the Dutch. Same goes for technical terms."

Israel

"I'm an American female, and the only time I have had sex outside of the US was with an Israeli soldier like 3 or 4 years ago. I'd say the main difference for me was how much music played a part in his seduction process before and after. His English wasn't very strong, and neither is my Hebrew, so I think he felt music would be an easier transition."

Japan

"I've lived in Japan for a while. Japanese guys tend to like different positions than Western guys. For instance, at some point they would all take my legs and put them so that the tops of my thighs were right against my tits, like I was on back hugging my knees. And they ALL will ask if it's OK if they come. "Itte ii? Ikisou!" A Japanese girlfriend of mine told me the best way to respond is to say 'No! Don't! You can't come yet! Keep fucking me!' in which case they'll pretty much come right away. She was right, it works."

Nigeria

"I dated a girl from Nigeria for awhile. She was in the States on a student visa. She was terribly shy and completely unaware of how damned cute-in-a-sexy-way she was. As she was practically a virgin when we met she didn't have a lot of experience, but she was absolutely enthralled and fascinated by my eager willingness to go down on her for extended periods of time. Apparently that's not a thing people do or talk about in Nigeria."

Brazil

"6'4" white guy who had a fling with a Brazilian exchange student here. She ended up staying in the States and I'm sure I played a small part in that decision, which is a crazy thought. I found her to be a step less inhibited than 9/10 American girls. She liked to talk during sex, a lot. American girls love to be talked to, but they never reciprocate."

England

"The biggest thing I noticed when I moved to the UK was that most guys are uncut, which is the complete opposite of North America."

America

"I find Americans are more annoying after sex…they are kind of smug about the fact that they 'had' you, or something."

The World at Large

"American F slept with guys from France, Germany, India, Korea, and a girl from Malaysia. I honestly can't say the experiences were very different than the guys in America except for the amount of pubic hair (much more for non-Americans) and the number of uncut guys (most)."

"Only difference I've noticed is people often switch to their native language at the moment of climax."

"I've also noticed we all seem to like to scream "FUCK!" while having sex too, no matter what the first language is. Fuck is universal."
