Sex, Orgasm and Pleasure For Women
There’s an astounding piece of information about how women reach orgasm – and which is the best way to please a woman in bed – reported in metro.co.uk
At first sight, it seems quite incredible: this article is saying that the best way to give a woman an orgasm is through anal intercourse.
When you take a closer look at this, it turns out this conclusion comes from a prestigious USA survey conducted in 2009, the National Survey of Sex and Behavior which involved over 1,900 US adults between 18 and 59 revealing their recent sexual experiences.
What comes out of this has to be taken with a pinch of salt, but it’s looks like anal intercourse can be an important source of pleasure for at least some women.
This conclusion is based on the fact that the number one sex act which appears to reliably produce female orgasm was receiving anal sex: a full 94% of women who enjoyed it reached orgasm when they were received anal.
Now this is startling, and it definitely needs looking at in more detail. I mean, really, if every man who wanted to engage in this act could persuade his woman to do so on the basis that she’d reach orgasm, everyone would be doing it!
Or would they?
You see, even now, despite the male interest in anal exploration, clearly seen in the huge number of porn films which depict it, anal sexual pleasure is a minority sport.
Out of this group of 1,900 American adults, only 31 of the women surveyed had actually taken part in anal sex.
Now that in itself should tell you something: anal is a male fantasy, but not much represented in real life. And that implies it isn’t really an appealing or attractive way to please a woman in bed. In fact, it’s probably more a fantasy than reality for most couples. Certainly for the vast majority of couples.
But the interesting thing is that out of the women who did enjoy it, 94% of them reported achieving orgasm during anal.
Now this is extraordinary – how can this be, when we know that the clitoris is the main source of most women’s orgasms?
Most of the men who claim to know how to please a woman in bed, will tell you that clitoral stimulation is absolutely vital for a woman to reach orgasm. It seems incomprehensible that 94% of women receiving anal would reach orgasm just through stimulation of that region of the body alone.
And of course what the statistics don’t tell us is what additional stimulation was taking place, or how sophisticated is the sexual pleasuring between lovers who regularly engage in this kind of sex play.
To start with, it’s possible that couples who are enjoying anal are much more confident sexually, also perhaps more sexually experienced, and perhaps they spend a great deal more time learning how to pleasure each other.
It’s entirely possible that anal stimulation of one kind or another goes along with effective stimulation of the G spot or the clitoris at the same time.
As the reporting makes clear, there are obviously a load of factors involved.
