NT ladies enjoying best sex NEW research reveals Territory women are the most sexually satisfied in the country, while Tasmanians are among the most depressed and South Australians the happiest. West Australian women get the most sleep, bagging at least seven hours of shut-eye a night, according to Womens Health magazines Biggest Health Check survey. But it is in South Australia where the nations healthiest and happiest women reside, according to the research. The states residents are an unstressed bunch and are 27 per cent less likely to have high blood pressure than other Aussies. The Adelaide suburb of Woodville West is also said to be the best place for a woman to find a male partner, with a ratio of three single men for every single woman. The survey also shows Queenslanders suffer lower rates of heart disease while Townsville residents are said to enjoy the best moods, in part because of the sunlight. Conversely, the relatively low level of sunlight is blamed for causing higher than average rates of depression in Tasmania. Tasmanian women are 40 per cent more likely to experience depression than other Australians, with seasonal mood disorder said to play a major part. Womens Health, which publishes the full results of its research tomorrow, surveyed 25,000 Australians to examine trends in lifestyle and physical and mental health.
