    Women Less Likely to Have Orgasm During Casual Sex?


    WebMD News from HealthDay

    Women are less likely to have orgasms during casual sex than when they're in committed relationships, according to new research.

    One study of 600 college students found that women were twice as likely to reach orgasm from intercourse or oral sex in serious relationships, compared to hookups. The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the International Academy of Sex Research and at the Annual Convention for Psychological Science this year, The New York Times reported.

    Another study of 24,000 college students found that about 40 percent of women had an orgasm during their most recent casual encounter. In comparison, 75 percent of women had an orgasm the last time they had sex while in a committed relationship.

    "We attribute that to practice with a partner, which yields better success at orgasm, and we also think the guys care more in a relationship," study author Paula England, a New York University sociologist, told the Times.
