The Orgasm Gap

by | Mar 28, 2024 | General Posts

You’ve likely stumbled upon the statistics: 95% of men find their peak of pleasure in the bedroom regularly, while only about 65% of women can say the same. Even more intriguing is the fact that a mere 30% of women experience this peak through intercourse alone. These numbers paint a vivid picture of the orgasm gap existing in many bedrooms.

BUT! Let’s take a moment to remember that these figures come from self-reported surveys. The richness of a couple’s intimate life can hardly be captured in a questionnaire, and the quest for shared pleasure goes beyond just reaching the peak. After all, the journey, in our opinion, should be as enjoyable as the destination.

The Anatomy of Arousal

Did you know that, anatomically, we’re not so different? Women possess just as much erectile tissue in their clitoris as men do in their penis – it’s simply tucked away internally. Yet, the path to arousal takes a scenic route for women, requiring on average 20 minutes to fully prepare for the intimate celebration, compared to a mere 2 minutes for men.

So, what’s the rush? The next time you’re both ready to explore each other’s desires (why not tonight?), remember that this is her spotlight moment. Begin with activities that relax and slowly shift to those that exhilarate and enthrall her.

Once she’s fully aroused, she can invite him in and enjoy more pleasure from intercourse.
