New Study Claims Lesbians Have Orgasms More Often Than Straight Women, Men, Everyone


Posted on

In a questionnaire, participants reported their gender, self-identified sexual orientation, and "percentage of the time they experience orgasm when having sex with a familiar partner."

The possible orientation categories listed included heterosexual, gay/lesbian, and bisexual — queer and asexual identities were not listed. The possible gender categories only included "male" and "female." The study surveyed 1,350 self-identified single females and 1,497 self-identified single males. All the participants also had sexual experiences that occurred in the last 12 months.

"One possible explanation is that [...] lesbian women are more comfortable and familiar with the female body and thus, on average, are better able to induce orgasm in their female partners," the study stated.
