Women are less likely than men to reach orgasm during a casual hook-up but twice as likely to reach orgasm with a partner when they are in a commited relationship, new research suggests.
The study, which involved 600 college students, and its findings were presented at the International Academy of Sex Research.
A similar report of 24,000 students found that 40 percent of women had an orgasm during their most recent hook-up, whereas 80 percent of men did. Three in four women in a commited relationship, however, had an orgasm.
“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,” researcher Paula England, a sociologist at New York University, told the New York Times.
