BANGKOK- A new survey that ranks cities with the “most promiscuous men” has been making the buzz all over Asia over the past few days, the China Times reported.

The survey was conducted by SeekingArrangement.com, an American-based dating website.

According to the Bangkok Post the study involved 10,000 men in Asia on the website that claims to be world’s largest sugar daddy dating network, linking wealthy men with attractive younger women for “mutually beneficial relationships.”

The survey results listed Bangkok, Osaka, Makati (Philippines), Hyderabad (India) and Saigon (Vietnam) as the top five cities for promiscuous male sex. Men claiming to have more than five sexual partners per year in these cities range from 72% to 83% in the Thai capital, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

A Makati city government spokesman cast doubt on the credibility of the report by saying that the website is aimed at rich men looking for sex partners. It’s most likely the respondents would pretend that they come from this financial center of the Philippines and boast a high number of sex partnerships to enhance their attractiveness.

“Asia is known for efficiency and discipline. There is a common misconception in the West that Asian men are not as promiscuous as Americans,” said Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of SeekingArrangement.com., according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer. But “it is simply not true. Because of the fast-paced lifestyle in these cities, men are always looking to relieve stress. In a city where the market is constantly changing, so goes the dating pool.”

In the survey, two of China’s biggest cities Shanghai and Beijing came in at 7th and 10th on the ranking. In a data published recently by China’s Ministry of Health, in Shanghai and Beijing, with high concentration of migrant workers, 80 % of them expressed deep frustration of sex while 21% admit that they frequent prostitutes, the China Times reported.

Another set of statistics released by China’s national population and Family Planning Commission showed that there are as many as 13 million abortions annually in China, the highest in the world.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.

Yet one month on, a quick look at the map shows that many of the worst-hit cities are those where Russian is the predominant language: Kharkiv, Odesa, Kherson.
