    Which Countries "Tax" Sex the Most?



    + ENLARGE (because size matters)

    For obvious reasons you can’t recycle a condom, but have you ever wondered which countries “tax” sex the most?
    Well… Environmental Graffiti has decided to create a detailed graphical diagram, complete with wallpaper download for your viewing pleasure. The data, which gives the average condom price around the world has been compiled from UK price comparison site pricerunner and a blogger from an interesting little site called condomunity. We thought we’d go one step further however, and create a graphic representation of the findings - I think you’ll agree the graph makes for ‘interesting’ viewing.
    When looking at it, please don’t deduce that bar heights are correlated to penis size (that’s just offensive).
    Shanghai came out the cheapest with an average price of just $4.50 (£2.25), whilst Ireland was the country where sex costs the most (!) at almost $18 (£9) on average for a pack – (perhaps due to the hostility of the Catholic Church towards contraception?). Prices within the US showed a high amount of variation, from $9.50 (£4.75) in Houston to nearly $15 (£7.50) in New York - feel free to extrapolate from that what you wish…
    Condoms can’t be recycled and as such may be considered damaging to the environment. And the solution offered for most things that either cannot be recycled or damage the environment? Tax. Petrol, plastic bags (soon), driving in central London, all cost at a premium. But putting a price on sex? Well that’s just cheap…

    As I am looking at the chat it makes me wonder what are the criteria choosing these nation? I mean did they went about randomly.

    Do you mean the choice of nation displayed? probably because they are the ones with available information and the ones that fit prettily on the graph,
    If the data is true it's amusing to say the least, but without normalising it it doesn't really mean very much, and just how many are in a pack?
    I have never bought condoms can't see the point when their given out free!
    Cattle die, kinsmen die,
    the self must also die;
    but glory never dies,
    For the one who is able to achieve it.

    Sayings of the High One.

    Well neither New York or Chicago are nations, so its a little strange why they were included amongst countries.
