Did you know...

Mathematics and sex may make odd bedfellows, but this fun, flirty look at the relationship between the two subjects shows that they are closely related. For example, could you find a better line than: “How can I know so many hundreds of digits of pi and not the digits of your phone number?” And you thought numbers were not sexy? It's time to change your mind.


At first glance, the results of this survey may seem a bit surprising: how come French and Spanish couples, known until recently as the most passionate in the world, are not at the top of the list?

Well, it seems that the “hot spot” has gradually been taken over in the last few years by Eastern Europeans, with the Hungarians, Russians and Bulgarians leading the charts, and the Romanians coming a close second. Why?

The results hide a reasonable explanation: these are all countries where individual income has increased considerably since 1989, whereas western countries – such as France, Germany, the UK or Austria – have remained constant in this respect. Consequently, improving the quality of your life will logically end up in improving the…quantity of your sexual activity. It’s just another way of expressing… happiness and optimism!

Serbia is an Eastern European exception which actually confirms the rule: due to the unstable social background caused by the recent conflicts and wars, couples who live there are worried enough to dismiss sex from their weekly “to do list”.

To conclude, being a citizen of a developing country might open the door to your bedroom more often. Unless you pay no attention to the piece of hippie wisdom: “Make love, not war”.

So, here you have the mathematical formula: peace+ more and more money = more sex

But don’t forget another important formula:  2= 1≠ 10≈ 5 ± 9= 3! Why? When 2 are 1 and don't pay at10tion, they'll know within 5 weeks whether or not, after 9 months, they'll be 3...

So, do your maths carefully!
