Last month, an interesting study was conducted on the number and frequency of orgasms achieved by women who have sex with women (WSW) versus that of women who have sex with men (WSM). This study found that women who have sex with women have more orgasms that those who have sex with men.
This clinical study may just cause some women to kick their male partners to the curb, especially for those men who have not been able to sufficiently satisfy their partners sexually. However, it’s not the apocalypse for men just yet as there are some considerations to be taken into account. Our research into this topic has also found several ways in which men can help their partners reach the Big-O more often during sex.

What Was The Goal Of This Study?
This study was conducted at the University of Arkansas with the lead researcher being Dr. Kristen Jozkowski and had a sample size of 1988 WSM and 308 WSW. The individuals who participated in the survey were aged between 18 and 65 who were asked detailed questions about their sexuality and sexual interactions.
Jozkowski and her colleagues found that women experienced more orgasms when with women than with men by 1.33 times. This means that WSW are 33% more likely to experience an orgasm during sex when compared to WSM. The study was designed to find out if Phallocentric Imperatives was the reason for this trend.
What Was The Conclusion Of This Study?
This study concluded that certain sexual scripts like Phallocentric Imperatives are responsible for women experiencing fewer orgasms when with men. Phallocentric Imperatives sexual script explains the expectations of sexual behavior that give priority to the male sexual experience, pleasure, and orgasm. This means that on a subconscious level, women may feel pressured to prioritize the needs for the man to orgasm. Experts theorize that this may be due to evolution and the primary goal of sexual intercourse being reproduction, which gives more importance to the male orgasm than the female one.
However, this current study also found that if they correct the data to take into account the variety of sexual behavior, the rate of WSW is reduced from 1.33 to 1.16 of WSM. This indicates that the lack of variety in the sexual behavior between men and women might also be causing fewer women to reach climax. After all, variety is said to be the spice of life, right?
Why Do Women Experience More Orgasms While Having Sex With Other Women?
Well, according to the researchers behind this study, “Sex that includes more varied sexual behaviour results in women experiencing more orgasms.” This means that the reason more women have orgasms when they have sex with other women is that sex with a man is less varied and not always centered on the needs of the woman.
Other research into this topic also found that a shocking 80% of women fake their orgasms with one woman orgasming with every three men who reach climax. While we have been conditioned to believe that women are not biologically designed to experience orgasms, some studies disagree. According to these experts, most women are physically capable of reaching orgasm. However, women take longer to reach orgasm, often much longer than their male counterparts.
Can Straight Women Experience More Orgasms If They Have Sex With Other Women?
Well, if you are a straight woman, you are probably not interested in other women, nor attracted to them. So, it makes little sense that you may experience more orgasms with having sex with another woman. When considering bisexual women, surveys have found that they may just be able to enjoy more pleasurable sex with women than with men. However, this was found to be more indicative of the sexual performance of men in general then due to Phallocentric Imperatives.
What Can Men Do To Improve Their Partner’s Orgasms?
Well, most men who find it difficult to help their partner orgasm ask this question. According to the researchers of this study, “Compared to women who orgasmed less frequently, women who orgasmed more frequently were more likely to: receive more oral sex, have longer duration of last sex, be more satisfied with their relationship, ask for what they want in bed, praise their partner for something they did in bed, call/email to tease about doing something sexual, wear sexy lingerie, try new sexual positions, anal stimulation, act out fantasies, incorporate sexy talk, and express love during sex.”
This conclusion is not all that new as women have been letting their partners know what they want from them for a long time. However, it’s often the men who tend to think selfishly about their pleasure instead of the woman. This is not representative of all men, but many have admitted to this which can leave the woman holding the short end of the stick, in regards to orgasms.
What Is The Secret To Better Sex?
Ask any sexologist, and you will get a significant but straightforward answer to this question: Communication. According to the experts, couples, regardless of their sexuality, experience improved sex and orgasms when they have better communication. While this may not be a surprise to most, this fact has eluded many men and women to this day.
Communication allows for both partners to talk and discuss their needs, wants and desires from their relationship. This allows the bonds of the relationship to deepen, helping the couple increase their intimacy. When a woman feels more intimate with a man, she is more likely to relax during sex as well as be more willing to act out her fantasies with him. A couple with a healthy relationship are known to have better sex that feels like it lasts longer and provides more pleasure for both partners.
So, to round it off, while this study has found that women experience more orgasms with other women than men, improving the communication between partners is essential to more orgasms for everyone involved.
