Recession drives South Africa to ‘naughty sexuality’May 8th, 2009 - 5:14 pm ICT by ANI
Cape Town, May 8 (ANI): The ongoing credit crunch has liberalised people’s attitude towards sex, at least that’s what a research panel at a recent Sexpo suggests.
The world’s largest health, sexuality and lifestyle expo, Sexpo, claims that the gloomy economic climate has seen a move back to “naughty sexuality”, reports 24.com.
“A research panel at a recent Sexpo noted a marked change in taste and naughty choices over the past two years,” organiser Silas Howarth said in a statement.
On the panel were Howarth, behavioural psychologist Dr Kris Launer, Reverend Daniel Brits, Miss Nude SA Bella Anderson and “mind power specialist” Alain D Woolf.
He said: “The global recession, job losses and bleak forecasts have had a major influence on sexuality in 2009… [This indicates] a move back to a naughty sexuality.”
“The global economic crisis, job insecurity and other stress factors will cause in increase in sexual activity between couples, acting as a stress release valve and escape clause from realities,” he added.
According to Howarth, Sexpos around the country had seen a dramatic increase in visitor numbers since the debut event in 2007.
“In some instances attendance has grown by 50 percent. A clear sign that sexuality has come out into the open in South Africa,” he said. (ANI)
