What do women want? More sex.
A recent survey shows that most women feel they’re not having enough sex — with some of them craving it more than six times per week.
The study, administered by the brains behind Kindara, asked 500 women who use the fertility awareness app a series of questions based on common stereotypes — such as how important they find emotional connection with a partner during sex and what factors impede their female libido.
The results revealed that 53.2% of women believe they do not have sex as frequently as they desire, almost 75% of respondents wish to do the deed more than three times a week and 13% want to more than six times in a seven-day span.
When it comes to performance, 72.6% say they orgasm during every sexual encounter and “many” do multiple times.
The findings are more than double what a 1994 study by Edward O. Laumann, John H. Gagnon, Robert T. Michael and Stuart Michaels discovered, which was that only 29% of women said they experienced an orgasm during sex, compared to 75% of men.
Just more than half the women quizzed by Kindara said that emotional connection is key to having “good” sex, while 23.6% disagreed and said foreplay is more important.
Stress is apparently the biggest roadblock in sex lives, according to 39.2% of respondents. However, 18% said nothing can get in the way of wanting to have sex.
Although the Kindara study is catered to women who monitor their fertility cycle, the results seem to be the most recent to suggest the stereotype of women craving sex less than men is false.
In April, German researchers Andreas Baranowski and Heiko Hecht replicated the groundbreaking Clark and Hatfield study from 1978, which focused on how well pickup lines worked on women at Florida State University.
Performing the study in a lab with the promise of answers staying private, the scientists found that more women were likely to consent to one night stands.
Another 2011 study from the University of Michigan found that women enjoy casual sex as much as men — so long as their partner is good in bed.
“I think a lot of my work is just about applying common sense,” Terri Conley, a University of Michigan assistant professor of psychology, said about the research.
“Are we really going to believe women do not like sex as much as men?”
