This Is Why Latinos Are Better Lovers

By  | 

The French are said to have a je nais se quoi that turns women on. Perhaps it is their accents or that they originate from a city that is synonymous with love. Or maybe it’s a sexual stereotype, much like the suggestion that Latinos are wonderfully passionate and desirable lovers. It’s all just a ruse to sexually exploit Latinos!

Or is it?

According to a survey conducted by Levitra, 76 percent of the French suffer from a lack of sexual response from time to time; whereas 78 percent of Mexican men and 71 percent of Mexican women said they are sexually satisfied. That’s the highest percentage regarding sexual satisfaction in all countries that were surveyed. Another study conducted by AARP confirms Latino’s have a higher sexual prowess, and it remains intact as they age. Latinos over the age of 45 are more sexually active than their peers from other races.

So we have something to look forward to when covered in wrinkles!

Why aren’t other cultures enjoying sexual healing as much or often as Latinos? Common reasons include stress relating from work and children, and constantly being plugged into our tech tools, like our iPhone-Android-Blackberry devices. But don’t Latinos have stress? Don’t we shop online and scroll through our Facebook newsfeed constantly? Sure we do! So, why do we tend to be greater lovers?

It may be climatological.

The Levitra survey states that Latinos may have passionate appetites due to living and originating from warmer climates. They wear less clothing because they are more caliente – literally and figuratively. As for the French and Brits, blame their lack of sexual prowess on the frosty temps.

Dr. Tanginika Cuascud, Sexologist and Founder of Institute for Sexual Health, also agrees. “When you live in a warmer weather, clothing is sexier and sassier, not strictly by choice but out of necessity,” the Puerto Rican sex doctor explains. “So it seems that the socialization of Latinos prompts them to be better lovers by accident. But what a happy one that can be!”

However, there is more to it. As Dr. Pepper Schwartz, AARP’s Love & Relationships ambassador, explains, for Latinos “sex is a necessary component to living a happy and healthy life, and plays a critical role in relationships and overall quality of life.” In essence, we’re hot tamales by nature. Dr. Tanginika Cuascud also believes Latinos are more passionate because “Latinos are indoctrinated to be sexy and sensual.”

So, it seems all signs point to yes – Latinos are greater lovers. Call it a ruse. Call it a stereotype. Call it unfair that Latinos have such an awesome reputation regarding their sexual prowess. You can scream and shout all you want, Frenchies and Brits! Numbers don’t lie. And just as the temperature will always rise, Latinos will keep getting hotter and hotter.
