A new study found that Indian men have the least amount of sex compared to Croatian men, averaging at one time per week. Is this the reason behind the large number of rape cases in the country?

A swamp of barbaric rape cases has taken India by storm. The most horrific of the lot was the unfortunate incident that took place last December when a 23 year old woman was gang raped in a moving bus by a group of five men.

Shocking statistics revealed in a First Post report suggest that though 68, 000 rape cased were registered between 2009 and 2011 across the country, only 16,000 rapists were convicted.

Despite many public protests and strikes, the number of rape cases in the country continues to grow. So what makes men in the country perform such barbaric acts? A new survey conducted by researchers from Men’s Health Magazine may have found an answer to this question.

According to results of the survey, Indian men have the least amount of sex, averaging at one time per week compared to Croatian men who are known to get dirty just about anywhere they can get a little privacy. 48 percent of the Indian men who took part in the survey revealed that they believed their partners faked an orgasm most of the time. This could be one of the reasons why they had the least amount of sex.

When it came to sexcapades, Indian men reportedly had an average of only 3 partners in their lifetime while Croatian men had approximately 11 partners each. Indian men reportedly had the least sexually active life compared to the other 30 participating countries.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Men’s Health India’s managing editor Bobby Varkey cited lack of privacy as being one of the potential reasons why Indian men have so less sex. Since most Indians live in a joint family, men get little or no time or privacy to bed their wives. As for sexcapades, illicit affairs are prohibited in the Indian culture and very few men dare to take such steps. However, this scenario is fast changing as more men and women have started having extra marital affairs.

About 95 percent of the Indian population have arranged marriages and more than half of them are marriage as soon as they turn 18.

The tame sexual life of Indian men has been linked to the plethora of rape cases in India. However, according to Ranjana Kumari of the Center for Social Research, the epidemic of rape cases in the country is not subjected to the sexual frustration of Indian men alone.

"Sexual access is very much there for men," Kumaru told The Telegraph. "I wouldn’t want to generalize that India is a frustrated [sexual] culture. Rape isn’t about sex but about men who think they can control women and instill fear in them."
