A 2009 survey conducted by the National Survey of Sex and Behavior polled 1,931 adults between the ages of 18 and 59 from the United States about what types of sex acts brought them to orgasm most frequently. Unsurprisingly, they found that men reach orgasm 91% of the time during sex, whereas women only reach it 64% of the time. According to Metro,
Interestingly enough, there was also a gap in the perception of orgasms. 85% of men said that their female partner had orgasmed – a significantly higher number than the percentage of women who confirmed that they actually had.
Which means that a lot of women are probably faking it.
Yup, that back-arch your girlfriend does and that porn star-esque moan she lets out? Probably bullshit, unless…
Unless you stick it in your girlfriend’s butt. No joke.
FiveThirtyEight was kind enough to turn the data from the 2009 survey into a handy-dandy chart, and according to said chart 94% of women reach orgasm when they’ve got your rod shoved in and outta their ass repeatedly:
However, take note that of the 1,931 participants in the survey, only 31 women admitted to having anal sex, meaning that although 94% of those 31 women orgasm from it the sample size is rather low and not necessarily reflective of women as a whole.
And if anal isn’t your thing but you’re still looking for a way to get your girl to stop faking it in bed, apparently the next best option is to change up the kinds of sex you have:
But if you do want a more reliable way to get women climaxing all over the place, one other crucial stat the study revealed is the importance of changing it up in bed.
Women were more likely to achieve orgasm as the number of different sexual acts increased.
So it’s a good idea to mix up regular penetrative sex with oral and other fun stuff.
Both men and women who experienced five different sexual acts in one session reported an orgasm rate of more than 89%.(via)
What it all really boils down to is that you’ve gotta figure out what works best for you and for her…or you can just be a selfish prick and jizz everywhere while she keeps faking it and slowly growing resentment for how shit you are in bed. To each their own.
