New Study: This is why lesbians have better sex life than straight women

As per the multiple studies and a report published in The Guardian links better sex with being a lesbian.

There were many reports and two of the three studies include sexual demographics along with various real-life examples that clearly indicate an overall better sexual experience for women who have sex with women.

In one case, a study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine from 2014 discovered that lesbians were likely to reach climax, with 75% of lesbians orgasming, versus 61% of straight women.

And in another case, both (straight/gay) men fared similarly, with 86% and 85% reaching climax, respectively.

A 2017 study from the Kinsey Institute shows that lesbians were 86% likely to climax, versus only 65% of straight women. Bisexual women fared only slightly better than their straight counterparts, with 66% of them reaching orgasm.

This study covered a substantially large sample size of 53,000 Americans.

Women also said they were more likely to get an orgasm if there is deep passionate kissing, mutual masturbation, with an amazing oral sex where women go down on another and in addition to simply vaginal intercourse.

As Australian sexual health therapist Matty Silver, quoted in the piece, said, “There are many men who believe they can give their partners an orgasm by just having intercourse. That only happens for 20% of all women.”

“They often need clitoral stimulation, or oral sex, for it to happen. It is one of the reasons that many heterosexual women fake their orgasm,” Silver added.

The Kinsey Institute’s research showed that some 95% of straight men, unlike their female counterparts, achieved orgasm, while 89% of gay men and 88% of bisexual men also succeeded in same.

Another study revealed by Health England showed that half of those surveyed between the ages of 25-35 did not seem to enjoy their sex lives. Unfortunately, that study did not break down its information based on sexual orientation.

The overall conclusion of this study is that lesbian women are seeing more sexual pleasure as they are able to understand each other’s bodies and skin, they know how to play with it and interests better — and know where the clitoris is which many of straight women are unable to do so.
