Study finds that men still can’t tell when a woman’s had an orgasm

Pin it

Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion released their "National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior" report recently, and many of their findings are pretty interesting. For instance, the people who use condoms the least are white people over forty. (Be more safe, you guys.) But the most hilarious part of the study is this:

About 85% of men report that their partner had an orgasm at the most recent sexual event; this compares to the 64% of women who report having had an orgasm at their most recent sexual event. (A difference that is too large to be accounted for by some of the men having had male partners at their most recent event.)

Hilarious in a "Really? Really?" way, of course. Dear Men: get on the ball, you guys. I know that I'm not really a guy who can talk about sex with a lady, but this just seems like you're not trying. Can anyone really tell me that it's that hard? It just seems like you're not trying.

The study is full of other interesting factoids, but perhaps my favorite bit is this graph detailing everyone's recent sexual behaviors, broken down by sex and age range. Women in their early twenties: surprisingly sexually adventurous!
