Having trouble getting your lady friend to reach that almighty ‘O’?
A new study is aiming to change that.
Scientists say three sexual behaviors they have coined The Golden Trio could help women orgasm more. They claim a combination of genital stimulation, deep kissing and oral sex (paired with vaginal sex) can increase a woman’s chances of climaxing.
“The results suggest a variety of behaviours couples can try to increase orgasm frequency,” researchers wrote.
Researchers analyzed data on sexual habits from more than 52,000 participants between the ages of 18 and 65 who were in relationships. They examined more than 30 different characteristics or behaviors and how they were linked to the number of times a person reached orgasm.
When it came to orgasm frequency, 95 percent of heterosexual men said they always orgasmed during sex, compared to a mere 65 percent of heterosexual women. For lesbian women, that rate leapt to 86 percent. Shocking.
The researchers concluded that women were most likely to orgasm when their sexual encounter included deep kissing, manual genital stimulation and oral sex paired with vaginal intercourse.
The researchers also found that women who orgasmed frequently were more likely to be satisfied with their relationships, wear sexy lingerie, try new sexual positions and activities (you know the one), act out fantasies and incorporate sexy talk.
In other words, your coitus could get a whole lot kinkier if you put in the right kind of work.
The research, recently published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, also found that just one third (35 percent) of heterosexual women regularly reach orgasm through vaginal penetration alone.
“About 30 percent of men actually think that intercourse is the best way for women to have orgasm, and that is sort of a tragic figure because it couldn’t be more incorrect,” said co-author Elisabeth Lloyd of Indiana University. “To say that there needs to be some education I think is an understatement.”
