2 95% of men orgasm, but only 65% of women do.
A 2017 US study of 55,000 people reported in the Archives of Sexual Medicine * shows that there is still not a high level of “cliteracy in the world” in that 95% of men orgasm during sex but only 65% of women do.
The study found that 95% of heterosexual men orgasmed, followed by gay men (89%), bisexual men (88%), lesbian women (86%), bisexual women (66%) and heterosexual women (65%). It also found women who orgasmed more frequently received more oral sex; asked for what they wanted in bed; were more satisfied with their relationship; praised their partner for something they did in bed; wore lingerie and tried new positions.
The authors concluded: “We consider sociocultural and evolutionary explanations for these orgasm gaps. The results suggest a variety of behaviours couples can try to increase orgasm frequency.”
