Lesbians experience more orgasms than straight counterparts
A new study has revealed that lesbian women experience orgasm more often than heterosexual or bisexual women.
According to a study by Indiana University, lesbian women reported an orgasm rate of 74.7 percent, while for heterosexual women, the rate was 61.6 percent and with bisexuals the orgasm rate was 58 percent.
The researchers speculate on the patterns observed, suggesting it could be the result of such known factors as length of a sexual encounter (earlier research points to lesbian women spending more time per sexual session); differences in gendered and sexual attitudes across sexual orientation; and even possible biological factors, such as prenatal exposure to the hormones testosterone and estrogen.
The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
