“Hot Spots,” a chart in the May 2007 Women’s Health (WH), exposed the countries whose populations have the most active sex lives. WH omitted the study’s numbers on sexual risk taking (which we include below) as well as the nations’ rates of HIV infection. Greece, which ranks highest in high-risk sex, ranks low in HIV. Could it be that the country needs better HIV testing? It’s all Greek to us.
