Explore sexual fantasies, discuss things, explore more sexual ways and above all understand your partner well in order to reach the desired orgasm.
Having trouble getting your lady friend to reach that almighty "O"?
"A major goal of the study", the authors write, "was to create a profile of the attitudes and behaviors of people who orgasm frequently versus rarely".
The team analyze data from an online survey, which gathered the responses of over 52,000 individuals from ages 18 to 65 and were in a relationship with a person. The study calls genital stimulation, deep kissing, and oral sex the 'Golden Trio' of reaching an orgasm for women.
The results of the study might not have come as any surprise, as 95 percent of straight men said that they "usually to always" orgasm when being sexually intimate with their partners.
Men and women across the world are coming out increasingly about their sexuality and others continue to explore themselves further with a major push for LGBTQ rights across the world over the years.
And now, a new study offers more evidence that straight women have fewer orgasms than men or lesbian and bisexual women.
She adds that: "To say that there needs to be some education I think is an understatement".
Multiple research papers in the past claimed that men, in general, are likely to climax more frequently than women. Female orgasm has remained elusive and many studies conducted in the past have linked it to many factors outside the bedroom.
So if you're one of the 45 percent of straight women that's regularly left feeling lukewarm under the covers, perhaps it's time to start narrowing the orgasm gap with the list above.
"Many women are dissatisfied with their appearance and weight, are less satisfied with their appearance than men and are more likely than men to be self-conscious about their bodies during sex".
"The orgasm gaps between men and heterosexual women were well known prior to this study", said lead author and Chapman University professor David Frederick in The Guardian. "Explicit and direct communication with one's partner is key". For example, there is a stigma against women expressing fully their sexual desire which hampers sexual discovery.
Researchers also wanted to know specifics about the last time participants engaged in sexual behavior: if either partner had done anything to set the mood, such as talk dirty or play music; what activities took place (from gentle kissing to anal); and how long the session lasted. "If they are not fully experiencing their fullest sexual expression to the maximum of their ability then I think our paper has something to contribute to their wellbeing".
