It’s official, Lesbians have better sex – well thats according to researches at Indiana University. Women in lesbian relationships are more likely to reach orgasm during sex than straight or even bisexual women. They are also likely to have orgasms with more variety.

The study has found men reach orgasm an average 85% of the time when they have sex with a familiar partner, compared to 63% on average for straight women. That figure rose to 75% for lesbians but dropped to 58% for bisexual women.

Researchers have suggested same-sex female sex ‘lasts longer’. Gay women are also ‘more comfortable with the female body’.

‘One possible explanation is that…lesbian women are more comfortable and familiar with the female body and thus, on average, are better able to induce orgasm in their female partners,’ the Journal of Sexual Medicine study said.

Findings from this large dataset of US singles suggest that women, regardless of sexual orientation, have less predictable, more varied orgasm experiences than do men and that for women, but not men, the likelihood of orgasm varies with sexual orientation.

These findings demonstrate the need for further investigations into the comparative sexual experiences and sexual health outcomes of sexual minorities.’

More than 6,500 men and women between 21 years old and 65 years old in America took part in the study led by Indiana University.
