Gentleman, want to know what's your best bet to give her the big O?
In 2009, the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University conducted a behemoth of a sex study: the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior. And we're still reaping the benefits today. On Thursday, the good folks at FiveThirtyEight poured through all of that information and distilling it into helpful graphs like the one below.
According to the stats collected on reaching orgasm, broken down by act, butt sex is the way to go!
At first glance, it would appear that about 90% of women climax from receiving anal sex. But let's back that thing up for a second here. The sample size for that group, just 31 people, is far lower than the other categories. You've gotta take it with a grain of salt. And, as the paper explains and author Debby Herbenick, PHd points out, the anal sex referenced in this study was often combined with oral and vaginal sex, evne fingering. AKA not just butt stuff alone will yield those results.
But still, with cultural stigmas being what they are, it's hard enough to find 31 women who will admit to enjoying anal sex, let alone shouting from the rooftops that it's a likely act that can help get them off.
Our theory? Hey, it frees them up to use their hands for other things. You do you, ladies.
