Straight women least likely to experience orgasms

By AFP Relax News | Aug 19, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 143 ]

Researchers from the Kinsey Institute conducted a study in the interest of understanding orgasm variation as it relates to sexual orientation and concluded that heterosexual women are the least likely to experience orgasms.

They collected data from a total of 6,151 single men and women between the ages of 21 and 65 by means of an internet questionnaire and finally eliminated the sample size to a total of 2,850 who had participated in sexual activity in the previous year leading up to the experiment.

"Existing literature demonstrates substantial variation in orgasm experiences among women and to a lesser, but not inconsequential, extent among men," they wrote. "The current study confirms existing findings and advances our understanding of orgasm occurrence among men and women across self-identified sexual orientation categories."

In the study, of which the sample was mainly composed of whites (approximately 75 percent), participants were controlled in the interest of eliminating those whose experiences were not limited to a familiar partner.

They were also controlled for identity to restrict automatic fill-ins, and controlled to eliminate intersexuals, whom the study did not concern.

More than seven percent of heterosexual women, or 86 of the survey respondents, suffer from aorgasmica, reporting never reaching orgasm.

On the flipside, only 16.2 percent of heterosexual women reported orgasm 100 percent of the time. Most, or 411 respondents, reported reaching orgasm 75 to 99 percent of the times they engaged in sexual activity.

Bisexual women's orgasmic experience showed little variation, although bisexual women were ultimately the most concentrated in the 75 to 99 percent bracket, at 35 percent, like heterosexuals.

Lesbian women, however, showed the highest capacity for orgasm, with 25 percent saying they climaxed with every sexual experience and 46 percent reporting orgasm 75 to 99 percent of the time. Very few reported aorgasmia.

Overall, men's orgasmic experiences showed less variation. Few men reported aorgasmica and all three sexual orientations were concentrated in the top two brackets.

Heterosexual men reported orgasm 100 percent of the time slightly more frequently than homosexual and bisexual men.

Researchers concluded that the idea of a "familiar partner" could be varied across sexual orientation groups that could underlie the patterns they observed.

"The wording of the questionnaire, asking participants to report on orgasm ‘when having sex with a familiar partner' likely lends itself to varied interpretations of how individuals define both ‘sex' and a ‘familiar partner,'" wrote the study authors.

Future research, they concluded, should further explore how demographics including but not limited to sexual orientation affect orgasm experience.

The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

What I have noticed is that women experience orgasm when they are the once running the show, as in when they are the ones riding or doing most moves. When a man is in in control they rarely experience it because half the time we don't hit the right areas... so when they are in control they know how to direct the man's man to hit the right spot. I hope im right..

I think most women know that males can't really get us there, that's why we learn to help ourselves. This survey did not ask the right questions.

No, they are reporting statistics. Apparently, women are better lovers than men are. Kinsey was a pioneer in sexual study. Maybe if you boytjies knew more about his work, you would be as good at getting the job done as us women are :)

In a true love, it doesn’t matter who comes first and who is on top, the life goes on. This thing of studying orgasms is aiming at promoting adultery and infidelity. Rather than focusing on your partner and life plans, people would be hell-bent trying to find out who is pumping better and make a lot of noise on the bed, which is a conduit to scatter sexually transmitted diseases.
