Thanks so much for sharing that research, kiala2021! I think a lot of women have experienced this in some form anecdotally – especially that very few women frequently orgasm from penetrative sex alone. It’s sort of common sense when you think about the anatomy of our genitals – most women need clitoral stimulation to reach full orgasm, and the clitoris is on the OUTSIDE of the vaginal canal. When sexual encounters are designed around what makes men orgasm, women often don’t get the stimulation they require to get there – and that’s not even considering the other issues we’ve brought up, like that the presence of pain makes it harder to relax enough to have an orgasm.
There’s definitely a LOT of way to go before women get the same sexual gratification men have come to expect, and it will take a lot of education and societal change to get there.
