Orgasm rates for single women less predictable than men's, vary by sexual orientation
Date:8/21/2014

experiencing orgasm 62.9 percent of the time.

  • Lesbian women reported an orgasm rate of 74.7 percent.

  • Heterosexual women reported an orgasm rate of 61.6 percent.

  • Bisexual women reported an orgasm rate of 58 percent.

  • Men reported experiencing orgasm 85.1 percent of the time, with sexual orientation making no statistically significant difference (gay men 84.7 percent; heterosexual men 85.5 percent; bisexual men 77.6 percent).

    "Moreover, to the extent that lack of orgasm is seen as a common and unwanted problem, learning more about orgasm in same-sex relationships may inform treatment for men and women in both same-sex and mixed-sex relationships," the authors wrote in the article.

    What do scientists and clinicians know about orgasms?

    Pioneering sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, and later, Masters & Johnson, noted differences in sexual outcomes among heterosexuals, gay men and lesbian women as early as the 1940s and 1950s. Yet little comparative research has been conducted since, leaving gaps in our understanding of sexual outcomes among sexual minorities. Understanding orgasm has implications for research and clinical and therapeutic knowledge involving sexual health and well-being.

    Scientists do now know a lot about the psychological and physiological responses involved in orgasm, such as changes that occur in heart rates and blood pressure, and about neural and hormonal changes associated with arousal and climax. What for some can be intense sensations of pleasure are subjective, however, and big gaps remain in what researchers know about orgasm outside the lab. This includes what the researchers describe as "fundamental questions of how demographic factors may contribute to variations in individuals' orgasm experience."

    There is even disagreement about the purpose of orgasms, with some evolutionary scientists arguing that orgasm is an adaptation to promote reproduction
