A survey published on Friday by Athens’ respected Andrology Institute shows that the sex lives of most Greek citizens improved after the July 2019 elections and the subsequent change in government.
Three out of ten respondents said in the survey that their libido improved and that they engaged in more sexual contacts with their partners.
The survey, titled “Return to Normality and Erotic Life,” involved 600 people, of whom 43 percent were women. According to the Institute, the results illustrate the impact that political change has had on the sexual behavior of Greek citizens.
Dr. Konstantinos Konstantinidis, the president of Institute stated: “After the elections, we noticed that sex increased in frequency. Of course, seven out of ten Greeks do not believe that we have become a normal country, nor that growth has accelerated.
“Nevertheless, we have seen that not only they are more optimistic about the future, but also more erotic,” the doctor added.
For three out of ten — 29 percent — of respondents, this “return to normality” had a positive impact on their love lives.
Fifty-eight percent, or 348 individuals, said that they had not noticed anything had changed so far, whereas 13 percent responded that this summer’s political change had had a negative impact on their sex life.
According to the survey, 5.3 percent of the respondents claimed that they have sex more than seven times a week, and 11.5 percent said that they have sex 4-6 times a week.
The majority — 35 percent — said that they have intercourse less frequently than once a week.
