Mangaia: The Island Where Couples Have Sex 3 Times a Night… Every Night

Jonathan Margolis’s book O: An Intimate History of the Orgasm tells of the island of Mangaia in the South Pacific, a sexual paradise where couples have sex three times a night… every night.

On the fair island of Mangaia, floating somewhere in the South Pacific between Samoa and French Polynesia, there live a people who, according to Jonathan Margolis’s O: An Intimate History of the Orgasm, enjoy “a profoundly erotic culture”:

“Young boys on the island are instructed at the age of 13 or 14 in the erotic arts by older women. A typically ‘good’ girl has three or four lovers between the ages of 13 and 20; and all women are said to orgasm, usually several times, during intercourse . . . young male Mangaians . . . learn several techniques of intercourse, plus cunnilingus, kissing and sucking of breasts, and are taught always to bring their partner to orgasm several times before allowing themselves to ejaculate—and only then in time with one of their partner’s climaxes. . . . Perfect sex on the island consists of . . . five minutes of foreplay, followed by 15 to 20 minutes of energetic thrusting, with active female participation. . . . The female’s final orgasm should coincide with the man’s. The typical 18-year-old Mangaian couple make love three times a night, every night, until their 30s, when the weekly average drops to a mere 14.”

Here’s my question: What the hell is wrong with the non-Mangaian world?
