Spreadsheets was an iOS app designed to keep track of your sex life that is now sadly defunct. It monitored user’s movements and audio levels through their phone's accelerometer and microphone to provide statistical and visual analysis of their performance in bed. Or as the creators put it:
Find out how many thrusts per minute you’re averaging, how long you go for, and exactly how loud it gets. Keep a record of your encounters, date, time, and performance.
In a slightly creepy move, the company turned its 13,500 customers' data into a global map ranking sexual performance across 133 countries back in 2014. (Maybe this is why they went out of business.) As you can see from the graphic below, Australia was ranked #1 when it comes to endurance.
However, we wouldn't dispense the high-fives and chest-bumps just yet -- despite lasting longer than anyone else in the sack, our average sex session is still under five minutes in duration. Oh dear.
In a further blow, lovers from France, Russia, the UK, Canada, China and the USA pipped Australians to the bedpost when it came to frequency -- but it's all about quality over quantity, right? ...Right?
Here's the top 10 for countries who have the most sex. (Their duration is in parenthesis):
