Educated women have more orgasms, says survey
From CTV.ca News Staff on Wed. Oct. 4 2006
Women with graduate degrees are more likely to reach orgasm than their less educated counterparts, a new Australian study suggests.
The survey, which interviewed more than 9,000 women, claims that higher levels of education and income are associated with a greater prevalence for orgasm among women.
"The association between orgasm and demographic characteristics suggest a social-effect, with better-educated, non-immigrant women more likely to have orgasms," the researchers wrote in their report.
Researchers said factors such as becoming sexually active before the age of 16, the number of past sexual partners and looking at porn had little association with a woman's ability to have an orgasm.
However, the study said women were more likely to reach orgasm if they used sex toys, or had sex more than twice a week in the month before they were surveyed.
"Use of sex toys and orgasm in women may indicate a link between orgasm and sexual interest or adventurousness."
The research also found that men were far more likely than women to experience an orgasm during their last sexual encounter -- 98.4 per cent and 68.9 per cent respectively.
And while men in their late teens were less likely to report having an orgasm during their last sexual encounter, women were substantially less likely to have an orgasm if they were in their late teens or in their 50s.
Aside from age, researchers said there was no significant association between a man's ability to climax and his income, occupation, education or religion.
Men were less likely to have an orgasm if they had been sexually active for two years or less, were uptight about sex or if they were engaging in casual sex, rather than with a regular partner.
The telephone survey was conducted by researchers from Sussex University, England, and the universities of Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
More than 10,100 men and 9,100 women aged 16-59 across Australia participated in the survey.
The study, "Sexual Practices at Last Heterosexual Encounter and Occurrence of Orgasm in a National Survey," asked respondents what practices they engaged in during their last sexual encounter and whether they had an orgasm as a result.
