A new study now reveals that men enjoy more orgasms than women.

For every woman who climaxes, there are three men who enjoy an orgasm, experts have revealed.

 

Two scientists dealing with sexual behaviour have revealed more about the so-called orgasm gap - the gulf between male and female climax.

They have also revealed the simple things every couple can do to ensure the female of the species are as satisfied - in the bedroom - as the males.

According to Dr Gonzsalo R. Quintana Zunino and Dr Conall Eoghan Mac Cionnaith from Concordia University in the US, while there are evolutionary reasons why men are more likely to orgasm, "we shouldn't doom ourselves to this idea".

They believe the three key things all women need are communication, confidence and oral sex.

Writing for The Conversation, they said: "Indeed, part of the problem lies in what happens in the bedroom. We all have different preferences when it comes to what we like in bed.”

They further added, “But one commonality we share is that we know when we orgasm and when we do not. We don't always orgasm every time we have sex, and that can be just fine, because we may have sex for many different reasons.”

"However, studies repeatedly show that women reach climax less often than men do during sexual encounters together."

When looking to try and explain the orgasm gap, the pair said the type of relationship can make a big difference.

The experts revealed: "If you are in an established committed relationship, the gap tends to close, but it widens during casual sex."

Dr Zunino and Dr Cionnaith said women in long-term couples reached orgasm 86 per cent of the time, compared to just 39 per cent for those having casual flings.

And it seems knowledge really is power in this instance - that and good old fashioned oral sex.

For the pair found the "most reliable practice to achieve an orgasm for women is oral sex", and added that "more knowledge of the female genitalia" increases the chance of a woman climaxing.
