Durex is now present at 2 billion sexual occasions globally each year and, over the last two decades, more than 118,000 people across the world have participated in its Global Sex Survey. The latest 2024 edition* was conducted in 36 countries.

The fourth edition of the world’s most comprehensive sexual health and wellbeing survey, in celebration of Durex’s 95th anniversary, found that condoms remain the most popular method of contraception, especially with first timers. Globally, 55% of respondents used condoms during their first sexual experiences, up 34% from 2006.

India recorded the highest rates of satisfaction globally, as 76% stated they were satisfied physically and 73% reported being satisfied emotionally. However, Durex’s latest results also show that men are 20% more likely than women to experience an orgasm ‘almost always’ or ‘always’ during sex.

Globally, those who are sexually active and use Durex across the world are 25% more satisfied with their sex lives than those who don’t. As the #1 condom and lube brand globally, Durex contributes to enhancing sexual pleasure and freedom – it will continue to do so through compelling and powerful communication and education.

But it is not just in the bedroom that people are spicing things up. 11% of respondents in India stated that ‘sexting’ was also a part of their current sex lives with their partners. This rises to 15% amongst 25–34-year-olds and increases further to 16% of those who identified as Gay or Lesbian.
