New Survey: Most Women Are NOT Satisfied With Their Sex Lives
A groundbreaking international sex survey reveals that couples in Western countries are the most sexually satisfied, while countries in the East appear to be less satisfied.
University of Chicago researchers surveyed more than 27,000 middle-aged and elderly people worldwide about their sex lives, regardless of sexual orientation. Alex Chadwick speaks with Edward Laumann, the University of Chicago sociologist who conducted the study.
We’re urging women to make their health all aspects of their health a priority. This includes sexual health.
According to a recent survey, not only are 80 percent of women putting their health last after their children, spouses and even pets but 62 percent of women admitted to not being satisfied with their sex lives.
Sexual satisfaction, despite what some may think, is part of overall health. The benefits of sex go way beyond the obvious. Sex can boost your immunity and mood and decrease your stress level.
Reaching an orgasm increases the benefits of sex even more, thanks to the release of the oxytocin and endorphins it triggers. These feel-good hormones contribute to relaxation, warmth and closeness, as well as helping fight pain.
With all of these great health benefits, it’s great to hear that 41 percent of women claim to always have an orgasm during sexual activities. But it turns out they themselves are mostly responsible for their sexual satisfaction and reaching climax, not their partners.
Some of the study’s highlights:
• Researchers surveyed sexual well-being in 29 nations, including countries they call “male-centered sexual regimes” where men generally control the sexual conduct of women, and “gender-equal sexual regimes” that emphasize equality between sexual partners.
• The survey polled 13,882 women and 13,618 men aged 40 to 80.
• Only 49 percent of men and 32 percent of women indicated that sex was extremely or very important to their overall life.
• Men who had multiple sex partners were less likely to be satisfied with their relationships, but more likely to believe that sex was important.
• Men report higher levels of sexual satisfaction than women, regardless of nation.
• Asian countries all reported low levels of sexual satisfaction and moderate to low levels of satisfaction with their relationships and the importance of sex.
• Israeli women placed the highest value on the importance of sex — the lowest score came from women in Taiwan. Among men, Brazil scored the highest and Thailand the lowest.
• Overall, people in Austria are most satisfied with their sex lives, and Japanese are least satisfied.
Here is how it breaks down:
- 62 percent of women always orgasm during masturbation
- 34 percent of women always orgasm during oral sex
- 27 percent of women always orgasm during intercourse where the penis enters the vagina
- 26 percent of women always orgasm during genital touching
So, what’s the issue? Sexual satisfaction isn’t just about having an orgasm, it’s about the closeness and connection it brings with your partner. And, according to the survey, 60 percent of women want more intercourse.
“The good news is women are having sex and want more!” said Nancy Berman, a nurse practitioner specializing in women’s health care at The Millennium Medical Group, PC, a division of Michigan Healthcare Professionals. “It’s important that women listen to their bodies and talk to their health care providers to find solutions for the underlying issues that can impact their sex life.”
