In India, peeing is a problem: Public urination has become so ubiquitous, men in NEW DELHI face fines of 1000 rupees (about $22) for whizzing in plain view.

96% of JAPANESE women polled in a recent survey complained about their men’s addictions to phone sex. 88% hated being asked to shave their pubic hair.

70% of VIETNAMESE men smoke regularly - compared with only 5% of women - says the World Health Organization. It’s the highest rate of lighting up for guys anywhere in the world.

THAI women tend to prefer Western men: According to the National Economic and Social Development Board, Thai men cheat, gamble, and drink too much.
