May 14, Photo credit: New research has found that straight men often wish they could perform more oral sex while lesbian women tend to experience multiple orgasms more often — among other things. The study revealed that men and women in same-sex and mixed-sex relationships tended to engage in different types of sexual activity. Their levels of satisfaction also tended to be different. Previous research had found that lesbian women reported experiencing more orgasms than heterosexual women.
That research has been confirmed by a large survey. But the researchers wanted to know more about how people experienced orgasm as a result of a variety of different sexual activities. Ultimately, we hope that through studying this we can help people to learn more about themselves and about their partners and to determine options that might improve their relationships and sexual relationships. However, the only group consistently reporting great enjoyment and satisfaction from orgasms associated with vaginal penetration is heterosexual men.
To obtain their findings, the researchers surveyed adults in romantic relationships about their sex lives. The sample was predominately white About half of the sample identified with the labels gay or lesbian, while about 5 percent identified as bisexual. The researchers found that women in same-sex relationships were more likely to derive more satisfaction from receiving oral sex than women in mixed-sex relationships.
Men and women in same-sex relationships also reported a greater frequency of oral sex than those in mixed-sex relationships. Women in same-sex relationships also reported the greatest frequency of multiple orgasms. Women in same-sex relationships reporting greater a frequency of orgasm from clitoral stimulation.
But there was no difference between women in same-sex and mixed-sex relationships when it came to the frequency of orgasms as a result of vaginal intercourse combined with clitoral stimulation.
Men in mixed-sex relationships were the most likely to desire receiving oral sex more often. They were also the most likely to say they would like to perform oral sex on their partner more often. Women in mixed-sex relationships, on the other hand, obtained less satisfaction from providing oral sex than the other three groups.
Why do men in heterosexual relationships want to perform more oral sex? Blair said there could be two reasons: Women, on the other hand, do not rate giving oral sex to male partners as being highly satisfying. Men in same-sex relationships engaged in penetrative intercourse much less frequently than men in mixed-sex relationships, but reported the same level of satisfaction from it. Human sexual behavior is complex and Blair said researchers still have plenty more work to do.
