Revealing results from a new survey has shown that women from Scandinavian countries are among the youngest in the world to lose their virginity, and the most likely to cheat on long-term partners later in life.

The survey, conducted by Victoria Milan polled 5407 of active female cheaters from 11 countries, to find out when they first jumped into bed, and how much bed hopping they continue to do.

South African women are the ones waiting the longest before they get curious about sex. The survey shows an average of 15.8 years, and South African cheaters lose their virginity at 16.4 which is also later than any other countries participating in this survey. 

The average South African woman waits until she is 18.7 before she does the same. This shows an interesting link between early sexuality and cheating tendencies later in life.

Founder and CEO for Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal said the results showed that in Scandinavia women are more in touch with their desires. “Love endures, but passion burns out. The earlier women feel and experience the excitement of desire, the more likely they are to have a strong libido throughout their lives. 

"When the fire in their long-term relationship flickers and fades, they have no problem finding someone to keep them satisfied," Vedal said.
