THE UK and Spain have been revealed as the countries with the largest proportion of w**kers, according to recent statistics.
The countries topped sexual wellness company TENGA’s Self-Pleasure Report 2019, with 93% of Spaniards saying they had tried the illicit activity of masturbation.
The Iberian nation outcompeted second-place United Kingdom, which saw 91% of respondents saying they had performed the act.
The United Kingdom however engaged in the activity most frequently, with 61% of men doing it once a week – the most of any nation.
The results were based on 10,000 interviews men and women across nine countries.
China came last of the nine countries surveyed, with just 71% admitting to the practise.
Spain’s top results however was calculated from 95% of positive male responses, and 90% positive female responses.
The results also revealed that August was the month with most activity, and with the taboo self-pleasure occurring most frequently between 7:30pm and 11pm.
More than 70% of Spanish respondents said they considered it a form of ‘therapy’.
However, around a third of all Spaniards admitted to lying about their involvement with the practise, with women three percentage points more likely than men.
