From the Ted Talk by Karen Gurney: The truth about faking orgasms

Unscramble the Blue Letters

I mentioned earlier that people of all genders can orgasm at a similar rate when they're alone. And that rate is about 95 pnreect of the time. The orgasm gap refers to data from sex science, which tells us how our chances of orgasming can move from this 95 percent when we have sex with another pseron. The biggest gap we see is for women having sex with men. When their chances of orgasming drop from this 95 percent they might expect alone to around 65 percent with a regular partner. We see an even bigger gap egenmrig with csaual or hkouop sex between wmoen and men, when women's chnace of orgasming drops further still. Crucially, men's rate of orgasming when having sex with women satys at around 85 to 95 percent, whether that's a regular partner, casual sex and just as rliabely as when they're on their own. We don't see such a daiatrmc orgasm gap when LGBTQ+ people have sex with each other. So, for example, women having sex with women can expect an orgasm rate only sthlgliy less than when they're on their own.

Original Text

I mentioned earlier that people of all genders can orgasm at a similar rate when they're alone. And that rate is about 95 percent of the time. The orgasm gap refers to data from sex science, which tells us how our chances of orgasming can move from this 95 percent when we have sex with another person. The biggest gap we see is for women having sex with men. When their chances of orgasming drop from this 95 percent they might expect alone to around 65 percent with a regular partner. We see an even bigger gap emerging with casual or hookup sex between women and men, when women's chance of orgasming drops further still. Crucially, men's rate of orgasming when having sex with women stays at around 85 to 95 percent, whether that's a regular partner, casual sex and just as reliably as when they're on their own. We don't see such a dramatic orgasm gap when LGBTQ+ people have sex with each other. So, for example, women having sex with women can expect an orgasm rate only slightly less than when they're on their own.
