A Third of Italy’s Women Can’t Get No Sexual Satisfaction

Are Italy’s economic woes affecting those world renown Latin Lovers? Maybe.

The findings of the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS) seem to indicate this is the case if one reads between the lines of a recent article on the website of the Ansa news agency.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

It’s not only Italy’s women who are feeling dissatisfied with their sex lives, many Italian men are not too content either. Indeed, two thirds of Italians of both sexes are not happy with what goes on between the sheets in Italy.

Quite a number of Italy’s women, six out ten, would like to consult a doctor in an attempt to find solutions to their bedroom woes, though Italy’s men are not too keen on actually discussing their sexual health with physicians. This, of course, means that the unhappy women who, in the words of the Rolling Stones song, can’t get no satisfaction, won’t get no satisfaction for the foreseeable future. It sounds as if the Latin lovers are somewhat reluctant to admit that they can no longer live up to their reputation. Tough times indeed for Italy, which, incidentally, suffers from one of the lowest birth rates in the world. Out of 224 nations listed on the CIA World Factbook, Italy is in 212th place.

For Italy’s unhappy women, help though, is at hand! After having tweeted the news about Italy’s sexually dissatisfied women, a number of obviously altruistic male individuals volunteered to assist in attempts to resolve the problem. One guy did sort of forgot that he was married, but, hey, it’s the thought that counts, isn’t it?

Italy – Land of Cliques

Yes, it’s true. Italy is riddled with cliques. It’s a very cliquey nation. Cliques are everywhere in Italy when you think about it, as I have been doing after having met up for a beer with an American friend.

Will Fiat Leave Italy?

Fiat boss Sergio Marchionne is arguing with the iconic Italian car manufacturers unions at the moment. Marchionne wants Fiat Italy to become more efficient and more productive. The unions think Fiat wants to deprive them of workers rights.

If Marchionne does not get his way, he’s hinting that Fiat might move to another country. Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi while speaking at an Italian-German summit yesterday commented that if Fiat decided to leave Italy, then so be it.
