Yep that's what they say. There have been several national surveys that have determined Newfoundlanders to be having more sex on average than other Canadians.
One politician once said, "Everything Newfoundlanders do, the do it whole heartedly." I think the long cold winters and isolation might have an impact and sex probably presents a fun activity to kill the time.
Fondest memory: This is not new either, people have seemingly named their towns after some very odd things associated with sex. Here are some examples of town names in Newfoundland:
2. Heart's Desire
3. Conception Bay
4. Comfort Cove
5. Come by Chance
6. Bird Cove
7. Conception Harbour
So with a sense of humor if you are in any of these towns inquire about the origin of their place names, I would think it would be interesting to know :-)
while visiting newfoundland (and the maritimes in general) my advice is to stay at bed and breakfast the people in newfoundland are the nicest people i ever met - so hospitality - its fun even for people who usually prefer hotels (like myself) and the breakfast are the best....:-)
Fondest memory: when we arrived to newfoundland we stayed at a very nice bed & breakfast at deer lake (gregory by the lake or something like that)
very nice lady and a week later on our way back to the ferry she rememberd from last time i like strawberries and bought me some for breakfast :-)
