Dancing the night away at a hotel? Sign the people of Switzerland up. What distinguishes the Swiss from other countries is Let's Dance (aka dancing) as one of the top non-sexual turn-ons, along with Hotels, probably due to the strong business culture.

If you do find yourself in a Swiss hotel with a front-row view of the Alps, might be a good idea to pack some oil. As Massage is also one of the highest-rated turn-ons.


If you love techno music with a side of back door adventures then head to Germany. Men in Germany are turned on by Butt Play - it's the number one turn-on for men.

Women in Germany prefer to hook up with a Sapiosexuality - which is the top turn-on for female users. Fun fact: Germany, Netherlands and France all have Sapiosexuality in their top 5 turn-ons. 

For both male and female users, Tattoos and Piercings are considered to be the second most popular turn-on. If you've walked the streets of Kreuzberg in Berlin and spotted the crowds you may understand why.


In the Netherlands, Sapiosexuality is the most chosen turn-on compared to other countries. So read a book by a Dutch canal and get ready for crowds of suiters to flock. 

If you’re headed to Amsterdam this summer, keep in mind that the Dutch are really into Scents. So you might want to take some time while picking your perfume.  

If your literature-based conversations go to plan, then maybe it's time to take things somewhere more private. Oral sex is in the top 3 turn-ons for all genders, so bare this in mind when... articulating yourself.
