Eine interessante Studie befasst sich mit der Orgasmushäufigkeit bei Schwulen, Lesben und Heterosexuellen:
There is a notable gap between heterosexual men and women in frequency of orgasm during sex. Little is known, however, about sexual orientation differences in orgasm frequency. We examined how over 30 different traits or behaviors were associated with frequency of orgasm when sexually intimate during the past month. We analyzed a large US sample of adults (N = 52,588) who identified as heterosexual men (n = 26,032), gay men (n = 452), bisexual men (n = 550), lesbian women (n = 340), bisexual women (n = 1112), and heterosexual women (n = 24,102). Heterosexual men were most likely to say they usually-always orgasmed when sexually intimate (95%), followed by gay men (89%), bisexual men (88%), lesbian women (86%), bisexual women (66%), and heterosexual women (65%). Compared to women who orgasmed less frequently, women who orgasmed more frequently were more likely to: receive more oral sex, have longer duration of last sex, be more satisfied with their relationship, ask for what they want in bed, praise their partner for something they did in bed, call/email to tease about doing something sexual, wear sexy lingerie, try new sexual positions, anal stimulation, act out fantasies, incorporate sexy talk, and express love during sex. Women were more likely to orgasm if their last sexual encounter included deep kissing, manual genital stimulation, and/or oral sex in addition to vaginal intercourse. We consider sociocultural and evolutionary explanations for these orgasm gaps. The results suggest a variety of behaviors couples can try to increase orgasm frequency.

Aus einem Artikel dazu:
Here’s a bit of news that will probably shock no one except the very people it’s about – straight men are the worst people in the world at sex.
We’re not just talking about the 16-year-olds who have no idea what the fuck they’re doing with it all either (you probably know what we mean here), nope, we’re talking about all straight men. Yes all men. We’re all rubbish at sex, compared with every other group, anyway.
This is according to a new study of 52,600 people which aimed to explore the “orgasm gap” (like the gender pay gap, but for banging) between people of different genders and sexual orientations.
The study found that straight women have the fewest orgasms, with 65% saying they usually climaxed during sex.
And what makes this worse is that the group that orgasmed most was… straight men, with 95%. So yeah, that stuff about straight men being lazy in bed really isn’t a myth.
Und etwas später:
The study, which was carried out by Indiana University, Chapman University and Claremont Graduate University, showed that the number of people who said they normally came during sex were:
- 65% of heterosexual women
- 66% of bisexual women
- 86% of lesbian women
- 88% of bisexual men
- 89% of gay men
- 95% of heterosexual men
It’s not really a surprise that of the six groups studied, the three who said they came most were men, and the three who came least were women.
And this study also seems to show pretty unequivocally that gay people are better at sex than straight people.
Ich finde die Angaben etwas schwer zu interpretieren, wenn man nicht die Häufigkeit des Sex dazu nimmt.
Denn ein wesentlicher Faktor könnte aus meiner Sicht der Unterschied in der gewünschten Häufigkeit sein. Ich zitiere aus einer anderen Studie:
Ard (1977) reported a survey of couples who had been married for over 20 years. He found that “husbands continued to prefer intercourse more frequently than wives” (p. 274). In fact, wives consistently reported that they were quite satisfied with the amount of sex they had in their marriages, but men on average wished for about a 50% increase. M. Brown and Auerback (1981) likewise found that a majority of husbands (60%) but only a minority of wives (32%) said they would prefer to have sex more often. A more recent study by Julien, Bouchard, Gagnon, and Pomerleau (1992) found that husbands and wives agreed that the men were more sexually active and frisky. Even more relevant, Julien et al. (1992) found that men were more likely than women to report having less sex in marriage than they wanted. With a sample of couples ages 51 to 61, Johannes and Avis (1997) found that women were more likely than men to wish for less frequent sex than they were having, whereas husbands were more likely to wish for more frequent sex than they were having. A study of elderly couples in Sweden likewise found that men wanted more frequent sex than women (Bergström-Walan & Nielsen, 1990). Indeed, the authors of that study concluded that “men are significantly more sexual than women, in all ages and in all respects” (p. 289).
Wenn dann Homosexuelle Paare näher beieinander liegen, was die gewünschte Frequenz angeht (die Schwulen Männern häufiger, die lesbischen Frauen seltener), dann ist es auch verständlich, dass die Frauen häufiger kommen und die Männer weniger. Es wird dann insbesondere auch eher Sex geben, bei der die Frau gar nicht so scharf darauf war, selbst wenn sie es vielleicht schön findet. Das erschwert zum einem den Orgasmus und zum anderen führt es eher dazu, dass man eben nach seinem Orgasmus aufhört.
Eine zweite Variabel könnte noch sein, dass die Verteilung der Orgasmen auch dem Testosteronspiegel folgt:
lesbische Frauen haben häufiger einen höheren Testosteronspiegel als heterosexuelle Frauen, Schwule Männer eher einen niedrigeren als die heterosexuellen Männer. Daraus kann natürlich auch bereits ein Unterschied in der Erregbarkeit folgen.
Ich halte insofern die Abwertungen für etwas übertrieben. Gerade wenn man das „Lesbian Bed Death“ Phänomen dazu rechnet.
Auch dazu aus der vorhin bereits verlinkten Studie:
They found that gay men had higher frequencies of sex than lesbians at all stages of relationships. Within the first 2 years of a relationship, for example, two thirds of the gay men but only one third of the lesbians were in the maximum category of having sex three or more times per week (the highest frequency category). After 10 years together, 11% of the gay men but only 1% of the lesbians were still in that category of highly frequent sex. At the other extreme, after 10 years nearly half the lesbians, but only a third of the gay men, were having sex less than once a month. Even that difference may be a substantial underestimate of the discrepancy in sexual activity: Blumstein and Schwartz reported that the gay men who had largely ceased having sex after 10 years together were often having sex with other partners, whereas the lesbians who had ceased having sex together had generally not compensated for this deficit by finding other sexual outlets. A lack of sexual desire and activity in women is reflected in the phrase “lesbian bed death,” (e.g., Iasenza, 2000) which has been coined to describe the low levels of sexual activity among lesbians in long-term relationships. Similar conclusions emerged from an earlier study by Bell and Weinberg (1978), which did not limit its sample to people in committed relationships and is thus a useful complement to the Blumstein and Schwartz (1983) study. White homosexual men were more likely than lesbians (47% vs. 32%) to report having sex more than once per week. A similar difference was found among gay Blacks (65% vs. 56%) (…)
Klar, wenn man nur einmal den Monat Sex hat, weil da beide besonders geil ist, mag da für Beide der Orgasmus deutlich wichtiger sein als bei einer niedrigeren Frequenz.
