TORONTO -- When it comes to making love, Canuck men are stuck in the middle.
An international poll that asked worldly women to rate the bedroom prowess of their partners, found Canadian men are considered good lovers.
But they reached that ranking by the skin of their, well, teeth.
Of the 20 nationalities uncovered by the pollsters, Canadian men came 10th.
The survey of 15,000 women, conducted by U.K. marketing firm www.OnePoll.com, found while Spanish men are considered the best lovers, those from Germany come in dead last because they’re — according to the results — much too smelly.
Guys from England were found to be too lazy in bed, Swedish men were too quick, in Holland they’re too dominating, Americans are uncomfortably rough, Greek guys are annoyingly lovey-dovey and in Russia, women complained, their men are too hairy.
Scottish men were found to be loud, in Wales the guys are said to be selfish and in Turkey, the respondents complained about issues with being sweaty.
Of the men rated as good lovers, as well as the top-dog Spaniards, Brazilians, Italians, the French, the Irish, South Africans, Australians, New Zealanders and the Danish all were rated as being better in bed than Canuck males.
In the U.K.’s Telegraph, a spokesman for the polling company explained: “These results are an eye-opener for thousands of men around the world and female travellers might judge potential new lovers by looking at these results.”
How can Canadian men now move up in the raunchy rankings?
They may take a cue from another recent OnePoll survey, which found six out of ten women don’t mind when a man uses a cheesy pick-up line, because it shows he has a sense of humour.
