The pursuit of sexual pleasure is a key motivating factor in sexual activity. Many things can stand in the way of sexual orgasms and enjoyment, particularly among women. These are essential issues of sexual well-being and gender equality. This study presents long-term trends and determinants of female orgasms in Finland. In Finland, five national sex surveys that are based on random samples from the central population register have been conducted.
A study published last month in The Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that nearly 37 percent of American women required clitoral stimulation to experience orgasm , compared with 18 percent of women who said that vaginal penetration alone was enough to come. According to Debby Herbenick , a researcher at the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, the results of this study revealed women's wide range of preferences when it came to how they liked being touched during sex. The study, which was conducted in partnership with OMGYes , a company focused on "the science of women's pleasure," surveyed more than 1, women between the ages of 18 and The study followed on the heels of a round of 1, interviews conducted by OMGYes with different women about their sexual preferences, for a combined cohort of 2, participants to make this largest-ever study on the specifics of women's pleasure. The women in the study took a survey composed of 30 multipart questions related to their sexual behaviors, attitudes, and experiences with genital touching, including detailed questions about how the women preferred to be touched.
