Women who have sex with women are more likely to orgasm, according to a new study.
By Josh Jackman
[R]esearchers at the University of Arkansas have discovered that though straight partners have sex more often, bisexual and lesbian women have more orgasms – by far.
The study, which had 2,300 respondents, found that women were 33 percent more likely to orgasm when they were having sex with another woman.
And they also told the study, titled “Are Women’s Orgasms Hindered by Phallocentric Imperatives?”, that they were more likely to experience multiple orgasms with women.
Those in same-sex relationships said they orgasmed, on average, 55 times per month.
This stood in stark contrast with women in straight relationships, who said they usually achieved just seven orgasms per month.
Dr Kristen Jozkowski said: “Sex that includes more varied sexual behaviour results in women experiencing more orgasms,” according to The Sun.
Sex between women “was excitingly diversified,” she explained.
The four researchers, David A. Frederick, H. Kate St. John, Justin R. Garcia and Elisabeth A. Lloyd, measured the orgasms which people across the sexuality spectrum have.
They found – perhaps not shockingly – that heterosexual men were most likely to say they “usually always orgasmed when sexually intimate,” doing so 95 percent of the time.
In contrast, straight women orgasm in just 65 percent of cases.
The orgasm gap is well-documented, and its generally accepted in the academic community that women climax less often than men – but this, of course, is a heteronormative theory.
It doesn’t consider the fact that possibly, just possibly, non-heterosexual people are better at sex.
The four professors, two of whom work at Indiana University, discovered just this.
Gay men orgasm 89 percent of the time, they found, while lesbians are not far behind on 86 percent.
That study came on the heels of research which revealed that gay and lesbian couples are happier than people in straight relationships.
So if we assume straight couples both climax 65% of the time – and that orgasms are a decent barometer of how good sex is – these results are excellent for gay and lesbian partners.
They come out 24 and 21 percentage points ahead of their straight counterparts, which equates to a hell of a lot more joint fun.
The study also found that “women who orgasmed more frequently were more likely to: receive more oral sex and have [a] longer duration of last sex”.
They are also “more satisfied with their relationship, ask for what they want in bed, praise their partner for something they did in bed, call/email to tease about doing something sexual and wear sexy lingerie”.
