Men, come closer to the screen. Closer. Now, get comfy and pay attention. If you’re looking to give your lady an orgasm, look no further than other women. A new study shows that when it comes to satisfying women in bed, it’s not men who have the answers, it’s women who have sex with other women.
Researchers surveyed more than 2,000 women aged 18 to 65 and found that women were more likely to achieve orgasm with another woman. While straight couples were found to have more sex (around 16 times a month) compared to lesbians (around 10 times per month), women were 32 percent more likely to have an orgasm with another woman, some reporting up to 55 in a single month.
Let’s compare that to straight women, who reported experiencing just 7 orgasms during that same time period.
Why is this? It could be that men are too focused on their own satisfaction.

Dr Kristen Jozkowski, from the University of Arkansas tells The Sun:
Sex that includes more varied sexual behavior results in women experiencing more orgasms.
Rebecca Dakin, author of 101 Sex Tips, says that “Men get over-excited and go for penetration far too soon. A woman needs at least 45 minutes of foreplay before intercourse.”
As The Daily Mail points out, the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington released a study last fall that investigated the link between orgasm, sexual pleasure, genital touch, and stimulation. The survey was conducted on more than 1,000 women ages 18-94.
Researchers found that a woman’s sexual pleasure was based on several factors “with diverse preferences for genital touch, location, pressure, shape, and pattern.”
The results? Only 18 percent said they could orgasm from vaginal penetration alone, with the remaining 72 percent revealing that clitoral stimulation was either necessary to or boosted their orgasms.
It’s worth noting that a third study focusing on the “orgasm gap” found that nearly all men—95 percent— always orgasm during sex…
…compared to less than two thirds of women. It’s time we all took control of our own pleasure by reminding ourselves that not all sex moves work on everyone.
