In case you needed more evidence that hets are just worse at putting their o-face on, a new study from Stanford University reveals that college males are having 2.5 times as many orgasms as female college students.

“The orgasm gap is worse than the sex gap in pay,” says Sociology Prof. Paula England, who teaches the popular class “Sex and Love in Modern Society.”

England conducted an extensive online sex survey of over 4000 undergraduates at Stanford, the University of Arizona, Indiana University, UC-Santa Barbara and SUNY-Stony Brook. When male and female college students hook up, she found, 44 percent of men orgasm — compared to only 19 percent of their female partners.

If that doesn't convince you to become a lesbian, there's more evidence after the jump.

As for rockin' the pink taco, England found that female partners often got the short end of the stick.

In the survey, students reported on their last hookup — anything from kissing to oral and manual sex to intercourse. The three kinds of activities were about equally likely. But when it came to purely oral sex — about 16 percent of the time — women were much more likely to dish it out than receive it.

In England’s survey, if a heterosexual hookup included oral sex, but not intercourse, the oral sex was reciprocal less than 40 percent of the time. In 45 percent of the cases, men were the only ones on the receiving end, and women were the sole recipients just 16 percent of the time.

In order to figure out if men are just plain clueless when it comes to pleasuring female partners, England decided to survey lesbians to find out if they had more fun.

If it’s male ineptitude driving the orgasm gap, women having sex with women should be immune to the problem. Consequently, the rates of orgasm in lesbian hookups should be much higher than in straight hookups. This idea is born out to some degree. The women in England’s survey who reported on a same-sex hookup that included oral sex had an orgasm 62 percent of the time, while women reporting on an opposite sex hookup of the same variety had an orgasm just 39 percent of the time.

So there you have it folks. Queers fuck better. And now you have the stats to prove it.

Jeeze, those statistics are pathetic. Straight women should call a moratorium until their men put some effort into it and get a clue!

Regarding lesbians: 25 years ago when I came out, I expected women to be so superior in bed, but I was sorely disappointed. Maybe it was the women I was picking, but I found that although they were generally much better kissers, in the areas of consideration, attentiveness and technique, they weren't a whole lot better.

In my experience, sex is a topic we spend a lot of time thinking and joking about and being inundated from all side with, but not one we're given much thoughtful information about, nor one we talk enough to our partners about.

One of the reasons I've always felt right having sex with guys is that they know how to uses the parts already. I'd rather assume the same holds out for lesbians too...

Could someone PLEASE tell me how to become Lesbian? I don't mean the actions, I mean the feelings. It would be so much more convenient.

Zoe Brain, you mean you haven't yet been converted by one of the lobby's zillions of undercover recruiters?

Oh, wait...maybe that process only works on "teh children."

"One of the reasons I've always felt right having sex with guys is that they know how to uses the parts already. I'd rather assume the same holds out for lesbians too..."

Depends what parts the lesbians in question (or the gay men in question) have, no? ;c)

Good point, Maudite. Good point.

Well, I guess the question for gay men, then, is how often do you orgasm? Because the survey neglected to ask you.

No wonder there is a whole population of heterosexuals who want to prevent LGBT folks from having equal rights......they are so damn jealous of our fulfilling sex lives!

From a completely anecdotal survey of my just finished college years, and those of my male friends, I can tell you that gay males are getting the job finished more often than 44% of the time when they hook up.
