Scandinavia holds the record for many things: happiness, healthcare, education, recycling, and gender equality… and now, according to the latest survey from a dating site, Scandinavia also holds the record for the most sexually driven women. Read on for further proof that Scandi ladies are anything but cold, and do with this information what you will.

One million women have spoken

Victoria Milan is a dating site that caters to the restless souls out there—and by “restless souls,” we mean people who are in a relationship or married and looking for some freelance excitement on the side. (Yes, cheating.) So when a website like that claims to know the countries where women have the highest sex drives, it would be wise to listen. And according to the data collected from the profiles of one million active female users of Victoria Milan, the results are a bit surprising.

On the top 20 list of countries where women claim to have a “very high sex drive,” Sweden comes first (39%) with Norway second (35%) and Denmark in fourth place (34%). As per the top 20 list of countries where women claim to have a “high sex drive,” the Nordic countries win again with Finland at first place (79%) and Sweden, Denmark, and Norway following suit in the second, third, and fourth places respectively. To give you a sense of the “competition,” countries who are traditionally considered “warm-blooded” like Italy and Portugal have ranked between the third and tenth place in both lists, the U.K. and the U.S. have ranked between the 6th and the 15th place, and Canada is nowhere to be found. Perhaps Canadians don’t cheat to begin with? In any case, it’s a far cry from the stereotype about cold Scandinavians.

Further proof that equality is really sexy

But if you think about it, is it really that surprising? We already know for instance that Norway is the most lustful country in the world—and last time we checked, it takes (at least) two people to get lustful with. According to Victoria Milan’s CEO, Sigurd Vedal, “Scandinavian countries are globally recognized for their amazing standards of living: healthcare, salaries, living conditions, and career opportunities are among the best in the world. The analysis shows that the more comfortable life is and once these elements have been taken care of, women feel powerful and sensual—and have the time to indulge and invest in their sex life. Women love sex, and they deserve it to have it whenever and wherever they want.”

Non-Scandinavian countries of the world, you have been schooled.
