Lesbians have more orgasms.

Why? Let us start by saying that everyone orgasms differently based on their body and preferences. That being said, studies show that gay women orgasm around 75% of the time, compared to 62% of straight women and 58% of bisexual women. Despite this, men still come out on top, at 85% regardless of their sexual orientation. So what causes this pleasure gap and how do we all ultimately experience that grand, erotic finale? 

While there’s no true evidence of why lesbians are able to get off easier, there are a few things to consider.


“Lesbian couples reported an average length of their sexual encounters to be somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes, while couples in other gendered relationships tended to average around 15 to 30 minutes per sexual encounter.” 

Familiar Anatomy

It can be easier to help a partner reach peak pleasure when you have similar parts! “Researchers theorized that "self-identified lesbian women are more comfortable and familiar with the female body and thus, on average, are better able to induce orgasm in their female partners,” according to the Journal of Sex Medicine. By being familiar with their own body, it can help with communication and techniques involving others, which is also helpful regardless of your sexual preference!

Goal-Oriented Mindset

Lesbian women tend to approach sex with the same mindset of men- it’s not over until someone experiences the big “O”. By engaging erotically with an emphasis on shared pleasure it’s easier to reach that finish line.
