Gold and Silver to Thailand


Dear Hillary,

Did you catch the item about Thai men being the most unfaithful in the world, and Thai women being the second most unfaithful.  Do you believe them?  From memory the men were over 50 percent (the most unfaithful in the world) and the Thai women about 60 percent (and they were second in the female unfaithfulness list).  Sure, there are plenty of people who cheat on their spouses, but 60 percent?  I just don’t believe that six out of every 10 Thai women is off somewhere.  It makes me very wary of having another Thai girlfriend.


Dear Lester,

Yes I have seen the survey which was commissioned by Durex, the condom manufacturers, with the idea of scaring people into wearing condoms I think (which isn’t a bad thing, of course).  So, as a friend of mine has said, Thailand with the number one unfaithful males, and the number two female cheats, won a gold and a silver in the Durex games, which is better than we did at the Olympics.  However, my Petal, I do think that you should take the figures as being presented with a bit tongue in cheek.  The number of people interviewed works out as only 800 in each of 36 countries, so it is not as if all of Thailand’s ladies replied to the questionnaire either.  There’s about a few million females here, not 800.  Divorce statistics all over the western world run at about 50 percent of first marriages too.  Just remember my Petal, that there are lies, damned lies, and statistics.  Hope you find the lady right for you!
