An astonishing new report about gay people as they compare to straight couples comes as a big surprise to researchers.
An incredible new study from researchers at Chapman University, Indiana University, and the Kinsey Institute have determine that gay people are having a lot more fun in the bedroom than straight people. The study, which examined 52,000 American adults, found that straight women are much less likely to have an orgasm during sex than any other group.
While it’s not the first time scientists have found an “orgasm gap,” this study shows just how amazingly bad the gap is, and that straight men, gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals are all more satisfied in the bedroom than straight women are. The findings were published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.
And in broader terms, men of all groups are experiencing more satisfaction than women. Heterosexual men were most likely to say that always orgasm when they are sexually intimate at 95 percent, followed by gay men at 89 percent and bisexual men at 88 percent. Lesbian women score strongly at 86 percent, but after that the satisfaction rates take a huge dip. Bisexual women reported being satisfied 66 percent of the time, and heterosexual women were at 65 percent.
“There is a notable gap between heterosexual men and women in frequency of orgasm during sex. Little is known, however, about sexual orientation differences in orgasm frequency,” the abstract states. “We examined how over 30 different traits or behaviors were associated with frequency of orgasm when sexually intimate during the past month. We analyzed a large US sample of adults (N = 52,588) who identified as heterosexual men (n = 26,032), gay men (n = 452), bisexual men (n = 550), lesbian women (n = 340), bisexual women (n = 1112), and heterosexual women (n = 24,102). Heterosexual men were most likely to say they usually-always orgasmed when sexually intimate (95%), followed by gay men (89%), bisexual men (88%), lesbian women (86%), bisexual women (66%), and heterosexual women (65%).”
