The Orgasm Gap

Updated: Jul 21, 2023

The orgasm gap refers to the disparity between the number of male and female orgasms during sexual activity. Research has shown that, on average, men are more likely to experience orgasm during sex than women. This disparity is sometimes referred to as the "orgasm gap".

There are a number of factors that contribute to the orgasm gap, including differences in anatomy and physiology, societal and cultural norms surrounding sexual pleasure and satisfaction, and the prevalence of certain sexual practices and behaviors that may be less orgasmic for women.

To close the orgasm gap, it is important for individuals to prioritize communication and mutual understanding in their sexual relationships. This can involve things like discussing desires and boundaries, experimenting with different sexual practices and techniques, and exploring the ways in which sexual pleasure and satisfaction can be increased for all partners involved.

Additionally, it is important to challenge and dismantle societal and cultural norms that prioritize male pleasure over female pleasure, and to prioritize education and information around female anatomy and sexual satisfaction. By working to close the orgasm gap, individuals can help to create more equitable and fulfilling sexual experiences for all partners involved.

For those wanting to understand a lot more about female sexuality including orgasms I would recomend the book "Come as You Are" by Emily Nagoski
